Followed by thousands of young people, able to engage all the nationalities, beyond any linguistic and political barriers, the Prize is an extraordinary source of dialogue with art in its different expressions. Also this year the considerable number of participants suggests how artistic creativity is a heritage that never wears out, but rather multiplies exponentially as the borders expand and an ever-increasing number of youths can participate and decide to put to the test their artistic genius with ease, because the support of the web is really easy, in a serious and impartial contest, which trusts the competence of a jury of young critics, who are involved in this outstanding adventure as well.
Arte Laguna Prize, in fact, is not only a showcase for art talents but also an instance of how both critics and artists can dialogue in the new world of the web, through a system of relationships that is completely different from the common one. The quality of the result is attested by the spontaneous participation of the artists and by the impartiality of the jury towards the thousands of people who undergo its critical judgment. On a quality level, a high percentage of the works submitted present an interesting artistic profile, and are able to fully explore the expressive potentials of the material.
The world of young creativity looks therefore diverse and rich in ideas and reflections, able to verge on the political, social but also virtual and imaginary reality of our world, remarking how art remains the most advanced stronghold from which to observe our ever-changing life. Momenti di illuminazione e ispirazione? Rari, in un primo momento, nell'esperienza di passare in rassegna la serie caleidoscopica di stili e narrative delle migliaia di opere presentate alla sezione pittura del Premio Arte Laguna, per il quale ho avuto l'insolito privilegio di fare da giurato.
Ma, allo stesso tempo, questi momenti si sono rivelati esclusivi e straordinari, e hanno reso possibile un viaggio prezioso e arricchente. Molte delle opere presentate manifestano questo desiderio. Oscillando fra tradizione e sperimentazione, facendo i conti con i riferimenti storici, giocando con le abitudini percettive dello spettatore, esse mostrano un medium in continua evoluzione, un modo di pensare attivo, che trascende un linguaggio particolare o un discorso predominante.

Moments of illumination and awakening? How rare they were, as a desired experience of reviewing a kaleidoscopic array of styles and narratives of the thousands of entries to Arte Laguna Prize painting section of which I had this unusual privilege to act as a juror. But, at the same time, how exclusive and exquisite such moments have become!
How precious and enriching journey have they guaranteed! Despite being the most favorite and vivid form of artistic expression, painting remains the most challenging medium: for over centuries locked in its always too tight frame of, as if, a singular page of a novel or a fragmentary architectural plan and tormented by constrains of time and space, its utopian ambition has always been to conquer the universe and to unfold an alternative micro-world of imagination and formal liberty. Many works submitted manifest such desire. They too prove how difficult if not impossible task it is to invent yet another, new vocabulary in a contemporary culture so obsessed by an omnipresence of an image, a desire for storytelling and an invasion of technological gimmickry.
Painting now — more than ever — has to act as an agent of innocence, an island of intimacy where all grand narratives of the world we live in should constantly be rehearsed and reenacted. Subtlety of selected paintings, and their poetic, gesture-like quality provide a performance of rarity and artistic excellence where the negotiation with the pace of contemporary reality is conducted with an uttermost sensibility and critical sharpness.
Partecipare alla giuria di questa settima edizione del Premio Arte Laguna ha significato prendere in considerazione un articolato e complesso stato di cose. Quando si discute di arte contemporanea, si parla essenzialmente di un certo intento comunicativo; interazione che, nelle arti performative e video, si fa maggiormente evidente e basilare. In questi termini, lo stimolo che ne consegue sarebbe tale da contribuire a rafforzare e migliorare la consapevolezza umana. Nel tentativo di segnalare una tendenza, la selezione finale propone alcune sfumature proprie dei singoli ambienti sociali.
Being part of the jury of this seventh edition of Arte Laguna Prize has meant to take into account an articulate and complex situation. Also this year, in fact, the considerable number of the submitted works has not only shown a significant global attention, but it has also been able to suggest a compelling international overview. The debate that rose from it has revealed itself as a meaningful moment of reflection and in-depth analysis of the current artistic research. When talking of contemporary art, one generally thinks of a certain communication aim; an interaction which, in performative arts and videos, grows more evident and essential.
This interpersonal relationship, thanks to the strong connectivity we are all plunged in, should lead to a strengthening of the reciprocal social and political knowledge. For this reason I think it is appropriate to think of a work of art also as a specific heritage, conceived in and bound to a given national context. The communicational value of a work is therefore expressed both on the artistic level and as a carrier of cultural specificity. In these terms, the following inspiration would be so intense as to contribute to the strengthening and to the improvement of human awareness.
In the attempt at identifying a trend, the final selection features some nuances of the single social environments. The international dialogue that stems from here therefore confirms the strength and the validity of this project. Virtual art is the Scarlet Pimpernel of art Never as now virtual art is multiform and looks like a feuilleton character able to disguise and to transform in thousands and thousands of ways.
Virtual art is like Fantomas, it is extremely elusive: it now appears as an app on a tablet, it now disappears and reappears with the features of a performance based on augmented reality, then it hides again, in order to resurface in an old land of Second Life or to take on the features of a geek art creation. Virtual art is chameleonic, because it can take on the features of other arts, take possession of part of their essence, but it is also partially invisible, to its liking, because it is able to gradually hide behind technology, that is one of its essential components but not its only drive.
Virtual art, which appears and disappears intermittently, is an alternatingcurrent art, which vanishes and reappears every five or six years. So future-oriented but also a bit nostalgic, clinging to the memories of the times that brought it to the top and then pushed it back into oblivion according to a common habit, reminds a little of the characters of B movies of the 50s and 60s, because in the most successful cases it looks wonderfully candid and naif, deliberately a little unfinished. Up-to-date and trendy, virtual art is an old lady, a decaying diva forced to carry on her shoulders a heavy and sometimes uncomfortable name, this art has just one problem: it is difficult to define.
It is much easier to say what it is not: it is not digital art, it is not new media art, it is not pixel art, it is not fractal art, it is not videoart, it is not only video game art To this aim the works presented at the competition are very interesting: in fact they attest exactly the extreme mobility of a term that is still elusive, and that in some ways looks as a container for different artistic approaches, working as a radical catalyst, while in others, it risks of being deprived of its potentials, at least when considering only the most immediate feature of virtual art in its digital sense, that is the one of a neo-abstract art based on virtuosities made of computer graphics.
Viceversa, going back to the most complex context, which avails itself of multiple approaches and which focuses on the disguising ability of this fluid, liquid and ever-changing art, different paths and countless schools of thought have taken shape: we range from the recovery of the virtual reality, that seems to be destined to go back to the top, to the works that focus on augmented reality, from the performances that create synergies between the body and the digital images to the reinterpretations of the virtual worlds built on more levels and and on different layers of knowledge. It is a rich and articulated panorama, that does not always look so organic as one may want to, not always considering the synergies among the different expressions, but which is well-promising for the future.
Questo Premio costituisce anche per me un grande processo di apprendimento. Quest'anno sono state presentate alcune opere davvero meritevoli, realizzate da artisti provenienti da diverse parti del mondo, che hanno prodotto lavori unici, sperimentali e all'avanguardia. Arte Laguna Prize is an important award for artists across the globe. It is a consequential platform, which supports and encourages experimental art, and sets new trends for the various genres of art for current times.
Artists from diverse cultures and professions have applied for this award, and it has been overwhelming for me to see so many works with so many different ideologies. This award is a huge learning process for me as well. Virtual Art is a fairly new genre of art, and has been adopted by many artists across the world to communicate as well as express their creativity in conceptual, interactive and responsive ways.
It is very different from the conventional methods such as painting and sculpture, in a way where virtual art includes interaction from the viewer and along with the visual, even the senses are involved, making it a compelling experience for the viewer. It has recently acquired commercial popularity and given a chance to many experts who have experience and knowledge with intense technology as well as conceptual innovation.
This year, we have had some very strong works by artists from many different parts of the world, who have produced works which are unique, cutting edge and experimental. It was a tough decision for us towards the end to select only one artist. However, it was a part of the responsibility of being a member of the jury to put many factors into the final selection. It was an individual as well as group effort. It is an honor to be a part of Arte Laguna Prize, and I would encourage more and more artists to use this established international platform as an exposure to their talent and creativity.

Premio Arte Laguna Tra questi si notano anche nuovi approcci a temi classici del modernismo, come le questioni della percezione visiva. Arte Laguna Prize In winter a city that oozes the melancholy that inspired Thomas Mann, a city that already at the times of Ruskin had been stripped of its glory down to its very stones.
A city that at the same time keeps on re-inventing itself, every two years transforming itself into the very center of contemporary art thanks to its great invention, the art biennal. For some years in late winter, in a warehouse that had been abandoned for ages, inside the arsenal that once was the industrial heart of the mighty Venetian maritime empire, a similar magic takes place, another appointment that, like its older sister, exists by tacit approval, and by the passion and the energy of artists, who still believe in this old dame and try to breathe life into her — the Arte Laguna Prize.
A Prize which sets rather few initial limits, and which therefore attracts the attention of artists from widely differing backgrounds and experiences: from those who work a few kilos of clay with their hands, to well-equipped sculptors who are used to handle several tons of marble or steel for a project in the public space, or to the art director of famous design brands from the hinterland of Venice or London. The differences in artistic expression and experience are even more acute among the different age groups, presenting the jury with a variety of languages that can be traced back from the dawn of the twentieth century up to expressions born in the digital era of the twenty-first century.
Yet in some cases the jury was struck by the very freshness and beauty of the works even of artists who have advanced well beyond their youthful age, as was the case of the Mexican Rosa Clemencia Labin. The situation of a world of art fragmented into a simultaneity of experiences that can hardly be reconciled under a single standard or trend is mirrored also in the final selection of artists, ranging from works dealing with the relationship between science and the human body, such as the works of Caspar Berger, who uses the techniques of instrumental clinical diagnosis and forensic medicine to create a self-portrait, to the neo-pop installations of Sasha Frolova.
The works in the exhibtion range from highly personal expressions such as Lee Jaewon's small balls lit up by animated figures, to installations made with materials stemming from the domestic sphere, such as the spaces of Olga Lah, created with thousands of dish sponges, or the interiors designed by Dina Shenhav, entirely created in latex. Among these works we also notice new approaches to the classic themes of modernism, such as the issues concerning visual perception. An instance of this is Marilyn Lowey who re-presents the set and the lights used for an interview to the Pope in New York, offering a detached look at the technologies of sanctification used by mass media.
The use of a playful language similar to the one of advertisments emerges also in the installation by Olena Levytska, with Evolution of Pollution. A seductive approach appears also in the installation of Constantin Zlatev, who uses american weapons exports statistics to control war film soundtracks such as Braveheart, which are played out by a flute made out of a rifle. While clearly referencing Gramsci, seduction has become the preferred method of protest. Oltre lo sguardo. La fotografia, quindi, come pensiero, narrazione, percorso alternativo.
Gli approcci degli autori premiati risultano aprirsi a differenti direzioni, come se lo stesso linguaggio fotografico esprimesse le contraddizioni e gli slittamenti del reale. Beyond the gaze. Photography and contemporary imagination Is it possible to outline a new direction for photography today? Important events, exhibitions, art prizes, actually highlight the multiple directions in which artists are developing their photographic research. Borders have crumbled, the gaze has expanded, the distances between generations have blurred out.
Being able to represent a landscape today, be it imaginary or real, does not so much entail technical perfectionism, mechanic or formal ability, but rather the ability to narrate a story, a gaze, an event. In short, the ability to understand the world. Following the strong interest on the idea of postindustrial landscape, meant as a 'non-place', as the development of minor and marginal spaces, of supermarkets, parkings, crossroads, sports centres, airports, stations; of landscape as a metropolis, with the development of buidings, fences, borders, finally we have come to a landscape that is no longer bucolic, dreamed-of, nostalgic, but rather to the landscape of man and of our contemporary world, with all its contradictions, but also with its raw truths.
Photography, therefore, as thought, narration, alternative vision. Interpretation of the world not only as a simple naturalistic reference, but rather as the place of social interaction and of life, of architecture and urbanization, of migration and encounter. The approaches of the awarded artists open to different directions, as if the photographic language itself expressed the contradictions of our shifting reality. These diverse and poliphonic works are but the result of multiple gazes, investigating the complexity of the contemporary landscape.
A complexity that needs more gazes and different points of view in order to be codified and understood in its essence. The journey, the identity of a territory, the invisible lines of the human face in a portrait, the static beauty of flowers in a still life, the design of architecture, the lights and shadows of the city, the vision of imaginary landscapes are just a few of the sections that could host the selected works.
