McGALLERY ESPACE YOUNG
by Laura Piovesan Schütz
The idea of an event dedicated to young artists and their creativity was in my mind for years. In 2012, thanks to the cooperation with Circolo Culturale La Stanza, this idea has been realized through the “22.214.171.124 Espace Young” project.
What I considered most important was to leave maximum autonomy of expression to artists, offering them the opportunity to submit different kinds of artistic works, from paintings or photographs, to sculptures, videos or computer graphics.
An engaging adventure that has opened new and stimulating ways for creativity. I remember when the first pieces arrived and how, day after day, we organizers were surprised and sometimes amazed by the quality of works.
The purpose was to introduce young artists to the public and that is the reason why I created the McGallery at McDonald’s Bolzano, the main sponsor of the talent, which already bought “The Prince of recycling” by Lara Erdini and “Baroque Bag” by Jenny Kupsch, two original works made of recycled materials.
