Sulle tracce del reale

Contemporary Art Exhibition

The seventh edition of “On the Traces of Reality”, the outdoor art exhibition organized by the Balbo Academy in the Monet Gardens, has become a highly anticipated event. In the cool greenery of the Monet Gardens, the Balbo Academy invites Italian and international artists to exhibit their works: sculptures, site-specific installations, large-scale paintings, and photographs. Each artist, by exhibiting their work, shares their life experience in art, conveying the message that “art is for everyone”.

This edition features the participation of 36 artists, both local, national, and international, and the exhibition of works by the students of the Annual Drawing Course and the Raku Ceramics Course in the halls of the Balbo Academy. Moreover, as per tradition, various events of music, dance, and performances will be proposed to mark the exhibition evenings.

The exhibition will be open from June 22 to July 6 from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM

Opening on June 22 at 6:00 PM
