Cremona Contemporanea | Art Week stems from the need to reaffirm in Italy and abroad the value of Cremona through a dialogue between its places and contemporary artists. The cultural heritage in the city area, which counts numerous historic buildings, small and large squares, private galleries and disused spaces to be rediscovered, today is still on the margins of the artistic and cultural scene and needs to be reactivated, enhanced and promoted.
Cremona has been a crossroads of changes, theater of interesting cultural and political ferments, tensions and conflicts, and has seen the passage of important families who have left traces which are still visible today. The project aims to give voice and life to this important artistic and cultural chapter (and capital) of the city and to witness the vitality and richness of the cultural and social status of Cremona.
Cremona Contemporanea | Art Week intends to open a dialogue between the local historical and artistic heritage and international contemporary art, transforming Cremona for a week into a place of experimentation, knowledge and discovery. For the period of the art week more than thirty artworks, some already existing and other specifically commissioned for the event, will be presented through a widespread exhibition that will cross various places of the city in dialogue with the treasures of Cremona, getting the chance for new reinterpretation through the experiments of contemporary art.
Cremona Contemporanea | Art Week is a project promoted by the Culture Department of the City of Cremona, curated by Rossella Farinotti.
