Lately, Drawing is enjoying a period of extraordinary growth at European level. It is for this reason that the Galleria Museo wishes to offer a view of the fascinating and varied forms of contemporary Drawing in both a regional and international context. Drawing, like many other artistic dimensions, has been strongly influenced by the technological innovations that have taken place in the last few decades. Computers, films and photos have irrevocably become part of the heritage of this expressive form so rich in traditions.
The “Strangely familiar” exhibition presents the works of ten young artists coming from different European and American countries, as well as from South Tyrol. Drawing is the main expressive instrument for all participants. The theme of the exhibition depicts the many access keys that contemporary drawing offers: works on paper in all kinds of formats, cartoons, computer animations, architectural and photographic aspects.
The exhibition proposes, on the one hand, abstract subjects coming from the oneiric world and artist’s imagination and, on the other, objective means of access to the real world and introspective glances at private and familiar enigmas. In this context, Drawing shows its role as a privileged tool that can transform and redefine what is known and familiar to us, making our everyday world slide towards uncommon dimensions. Under the searching glance of a broken line, the unusual reveals itself as familiar.
