Sunday October 15 th 2017, on the occasion of the European Art Cinema Day (EACD), is born Odeon Gallery, the brand new art space of the Odeon Cinema devoted to contemporary art.
The purpose of the gallery and its annual program is to promote the art and, above all, the artists, proposing a kind of showcase in the full center of Bologna, a hybrid space where Cinema and Art Gallery melt in an only project. Odeon Cinema was always involved in the diffusion of quality movies with elevated artistic thickness, so the match with other figurative arts is a further step in such direction. The combination of visual and cinematic arts bring us into the dimension of the “dream” (immagination, fantasy, story telling, archetypal research, development of new ideas, desires, thoughts, élan vital that moves everything..) allowing us to create a leading thread that joins art, innovation, philosophy and introspective research on the front of the soul, thus linking the various exhibitions, personal or collective, centered on thepoetics of each individual artist. Each exhibition foresees an opening event (vernissage) and two theme “symposium-dinners” in presence of the artist, the all in the relaxed atmosphere and in the intimate climate of the Sal8tto, to melt art, cinema and kitchen to the insignia of the artistic and cultural spirit of the Odeon Cinema. As it regards the “symposium-dinners”, the places are limited to guarantee an intimate atmosphere of dialogue, so the reservation is recommended. Odeon Gallery is, in conclusion, a real art gallery, that offers a service of care and possible sale of the exposed works, but with an indipendent and free spirit, that sets in the forground art and philosophy, promoting the beauty and the creativeness.
