From May 17 to June 3, 2018 Villa delle Rose hosts "You Can Do It and You Must Do It". The exhibition is organized by Academy Now – the independent platform based in London dedicated to the research and promotion of the recently art graduates in Europe - in collaboration with MAMbo-Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna and Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna, and curated by Laura Tori Petrillo. It wants to be both an encouragement for the aspiring artists to continue their calling, and a way for the public and private institutions to become aware of the problems related to the end of the academic study path.
The exhibition includes ten artists: five finalists selected from the past international editions, and five new artists coming from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna: Frank Ammerlaan, Veronica Billi, Nicola Bizzarri, Leni Dothan, Nicolas Feldmeyer, Vincenzo Gentile, Noa Pane, Dario Picariello, Daniele Pulze, and Fabio Romano. Opening on Wednesday, May 16 at 6pm, with the performance Futuro Fare by Agata Torelli.
