The art in Italy has always been known for style and innovation. Past centuries have always been influenced subsequent years, giving the world a magnificent cultural landscape that still today is preserved and admired with great respect.
Of this great heritage, it is also part of contemporary art, from the post-impressionist period to the present day.
The increasing speed and volume of exchanges of ideas, financial resources, information and culture around the globe also happens in the art world. Many of the barriers and distinctions within art have fallen by contributing to a lively and typical of contemporary multidisciplinary approach that has made it often reason for being.
The study of often innovative artistic tools and the use of the same no other purpose, have characterized so much of what we might call contemporary art.
In favor of this, a new philosophy has established itself over the years: the post-Duchamp's philosophy. According to this philosophy, every object can become art.
This is probably the best way to fully describe the contemporary art and Italian design in general.
If Italy is one of the nations with the largest amount of cultural heritage, it is also due thanks to the untiring search for new forms of art. In particular, it continues its collection of great Italian contemporary artists who cultivate their passion with dedication and tireless curiosity towards the new.
In the art world Italian sculptors and famous contemporary painters are characterized, marking and celebrating contemporary and modern history story.
Contemporary painters and modern artists are diversified with works created through related techniques and languages between them: painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, video art, design, performance, installation. Contemporary Art includes different trends such as conceptual art, performance art, graffiti, feminist art, pop art.
The contemporary art scene, “Poor Art” (started in the second half of the sixties) and Trans avant-garde (known since the early eighties) were the two main imprints 'Italian contemporary art' which reached national borders.
To support this great art are committed not only private exhibition spaces, but also municipal. Contemporary art is constantly promoted by museums, institutions, from galleries, it is supported by critics, curators, art dealers that contribute to the formation of contemporary art and the art market
Italy is full of exhibition space dedicated to contemporary art and offers many opportunities for artists to publicize their works.
Museums, galleries, cultural institutions, artistic collectives: art in Italy following the flow of events techniques and narrative languages and sometimes anticipate the major global socio-cultural changes.
Place of excellence of culture, Italy, the cradle of Roman art, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, as well plays an important role in the world of modern and contemporary scene.
