Moroso Concept for contemporary art 2015
Moroso announces the names of the 36 entrants and the special host of the 2015 Moroso Concept for Contemporary Art. Born as the Moroso Award in 2010 from an idea by Andrea Bruciati and supported by Patrizia Moroso, as from 2015 the award becomes the Moroso Concept. This initiative confirms its purpose of documenting, giving prominence to and supporting artists working in Italy in a broad diversity of expressive forms.
A first selection will emerge from a discussion amongst the jury, which is composed of Andrea Bruciati, independent curator, Patrizia Moroso, Moroso’s art director and Marina Abramovic, internationally famous artist, winner of the Golden Lion at the 1997 Venice Biennale and patroness of this year’s event. This first screening will produce a shortlist of 12 candidates who will be asked to make a themed work conceived specifically for Moroso’s venues. The 12 projects will then be presented at a major exhibition held from March 28 till May 24, 2015 in the beautiful setting of Villa Manin in Passariano (Udine).
