The European Cultural Centre presents the First version of the multidisciplinary outside exhibition titled OPEN SPACE, opening in parallel with the Venice Biennale on the occasion of its 125th anniversary of its foundation. The exhibition opened on August 29th, 2020 and it will run until February 16th, 2021 in the lovely gardens of Giardini della Marinaressa.
With this exhibition, the European Cultural Centre want to acknowledge the necessary affect of art and design on our lives, by highlighting the relationship with public areas and communities. OPEN SPACE is an interdisciplinary challenge involving artists, architects and designers bringing small and enormous scale installations, including uniqueness and cultural value to the town of Venice and which means to its group. In such unprecedented occasions, the general public area is cherished, during which Giardini della Marinaressa captures the spirit and environment of a vivid cultural milieu in an open area in nature.
The exhibited works will invite visitors to mirror on the connection between public spaces within the urban context and the precise concepts highlighted by each participant.
This 6-month venture is accompanied by a collateral program of public events which can happen within the gardens. The dialogue and diffusion of ideas and creativity by means of workshops, film screenings, performances and guided excursions will help the importance of openness and public areas in our trendy occasions. This vivid intersection of open historic gardens merged with a sense of up to date public art is a place where individuals can really feel the impression of interactive tasks in an authentic open area in Venice.
OPEN SPACE is going to happen in Venice at Giardini della Marinaressa. The gardens are situated in the Castello district between Arsenale and Giardini of La Biennale and located alongside the Riva dei Sette Martiri, the monumental waterfront of the City of Venice.
This exhibition aims to create a public area to promote individuals’s happiness, gathering, and well-being. These renowned artists share a standard value of making a top quality dynamic public area in dialogue with inspirational inventive tasks.
The European Cultural Centre throughout the current years and starting from 2017 promoted and sustained the renovation of the 2 gardens (Giardino di Levante and Giardino di Ponente) to supply cultural activities and to make these spaces accessible and gratifying for citizens and worldwide visitors.
