The exhibition is included in the AUTUNNO BLU – five exhibition events set up simultaneously, curated by Anna Orlando and Francesca Serrati

In collaboration with the ARTEJEANS association, London

The 24 works generously donated to the Civic Collections of Genoa by historicized and internationally renowned artists, carefully selected by the critical committee composed of Ilaria Bignotti, Luciano Caprile and Laura Garbarino are exhibited for the first time to the public in the dynamic spaces of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Villa Croce. A great gift for Genoa to look to the future.

The artists created their works starting from a 200 x 180 cm denim canvas, offered by the partner of the event – Candiani Denim – interpreting it and transforming it into works of art, entering the ‘blue’ heart of the city, the cloth of Genoa, fabric that  has dressed the Superba (Genoa)  since the Middle Ages and part of its own identity.
