The names of the five finalists and of the curators, protagonists of the eighth edition of one of the Italian excellence awards that support young contemporary artists, were announced

Pleure qui peut, rit qui veut (those who can, cry; those who want, laugh) is the title that accompanies the eighth edition of the Furla 2011 Award, contest that was born from the will of the Fondazione Querini of Venice, conceived by Chiara Bertola and promoted by the artistic sensibility of Giovanna Furlanetto, president of Furla, the Emilia leather brand, with MAMbo – Museum of Modern Art of Bologna, presented yesterday in Milan.
The slowness, portrayed by a graphic image that sees a clown in conflict between laughing and crying (under, the image), both pieces by the French artist Christian Boltanski, godfather of this edition, turns to open a new horizon of reflection on contemporary art that the Award is committed to represent, for ten years now, by supporting young Italian artists and curators, put to dialogue with art critics, museum directors and prestigious international art centers, to discover a new Italian way of art.
Protagonists of this new dialogue are the artists Andrea Respiro and Davide Gennarino, of the Alis/FilliolFrancesco ArenaRossella BiscottiMatteo Rubbi and Marinella Senatore, whose pieces, a mass of sculptures and installations of heterogeneous materials, selected by the curators Lorenzo BruniCecilia CanzianiAlfredo CramerottiVincenzoDe BellisSimone MenegoiCarson ChanVincent HonoréEmily PethickPhilippe Pirotte and Marianne Lanavère, will be exposed, one day after the announcement of the winner, from January 29 to the 6 of February 2011 at Palazzo Pepoli, historic Bologna building recently renovated by the Fondazione Carisbo, new partner of the Award.
