On 10 April 2024 the Art Gallery of Florence hosts the exhibition #ARTFORSUSTAINABILITY, curated by Daniela Pronestì.

 

The project, realized in collaboration with MA-EC Gallery Milano, sees in dialogue the works of 9 artists who have been invited to reflect on sustainability, a topic of global interest. The artists' responsibility is to focus on environmental issues and to use art to awaken consciences, with the aim of having a fairer future, focused on humanity and respectful of natural ecosystems.

Fundamental is a positive attitude towards oneself and others, for a harmonious interaction between individuals, communities and the environment. Such an approach requires a critical assessment of the scale of values and habits, and focuses on the interconnectedness between the various dimensions of human life and the ecosystem.

 

The commitment of all and therefore also of artists must be aimed at building a fairer, resilient and prosperous world for all life on Earth, according to a continuous and dynamic process.

In the exhibition in Florence exhibit Gianni Baggi Otr, Horst Beyer, Hui Li & Yiran Li, Shuyi Liu & Yachu Feng, Yating Liu, Alessandro Puccia, Maria Micaela Schiavi, Liang Wang, Xunmu Wu. With different techniques and styles, they present to the public their message that wants to be a point of reflection and analysis for all.
