Prezioso Quotidiano, presented in the space of the Botanical Garden of Brera, is the pilot project of the multi-year research programme Art to be Used, promoted by Fratelli Guzzini and the Fine Arts Academy of Brera and intended for visual artists, designers and communication experts.
Their mission will be that of interpreting the relationship between art and objects from a double point of view: art from daily life and art in daily life. The research programme includes a competition bearing the same name as well as a series of exhibitions, events and publications.
The energy and vitality of artistic expression, to interpret the industrialproduct, granting it new meanings. The exhibition “Venice. Prezioso quotidiano” is inspired by the new Venice collection for the table by Fratelli Guzzini.
All the works narrate the expressive impact of the collection designed by Pio e Tito Toso: tableware complements and settings with the transparency of crystal, with thicknesses and games of light that make the items contemporary and exclusive.
The protagonists of the exhibition are sculptures by three outstanding Italian artists, Mariano Moroni, Ermenegildo Pannocchia and Caterina Tosoni, which represent the first results of the research program and competition “Art to be used” promoted by Fratelli Guzzini, with the aim of investigating the relationship between art and objects of an industrial nature, as well as an installation by Marco Pareschi.
The show also includes the young artist Antonio Gramegna, in order to launch the competition “Art to be used,” in collaboration with Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera. The annual competition will be done in partnership with important European academies.
