Romanian Academy, Rome
On Wednesday the 8th June 2011, at 7 pm, in the Romanian Academy in Rome the 9th edition of the art exhibition Spazi Aperti, organised by Luisa Conte and titled Aesthetics experience, will be opening. The event, as in past editions, will house in the prestigious seat of the Academy, until 21st June 2011, works by artists coming from foreign Academies in Rome and Culture Institutions and by many other italian and foreign artists. The exhibition will give a panorama of contemporary art: from video art to installation, from painting to sculpture, from photography to performance, from music to dance and theatre.
The title of the 9th edition is based on theories reported in the book “L’esperienza estetica. Fondamenti psicofisiologici per un’educazione estetica” by Vezio Ruggieri, professor of the University of Rome La Sapienza, Faculty of Psychology. The aesthetics experience is a personal and subjective journey every observer takes when he or she enters in communication with the works of art through the body, taking with him or her the baggage of his own experiences, that is the synthesis of cognitive and emotional processes.
The observers are as important as the works of art because through their participation they allow the aesthetics experience to develop: the art exists thanks to the observer’s elaboration process. The exhibition invites the audience to a sensorial contact with the art in order to provide the experience of aesthetic emotion in its completeness and to experience the concepts of weight, lightness, tension, relaxation, movement, and the relationship between you and I. The artists present site specific works that, in their different expressions, analyse the relationship with the other, the audience: the result is a rich and variegated itinerary of ‘stimuli’ in order to allow everybody to seek the aesthetics experience and to find, among infinite possibilities, their own ‘emotion’.
