Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey | Artwork by Cristina Pozzan | Legno & Legno Art Space, Giudecca, Venice


The title of the exhibition refers to the Beatles song of the same name contained in the album The Beatles of 1968 and represents the intention to investigate the various expressive languages ​​of Visual Art as powerful elements of communication that, across the course of history have been instrumental of narration of truths and false truths, of very strong didactic ability to reproduce the real and only means of transposition and narration of the surreal, the psychedelic, the alteration, the journey into the space of elsewhere and the imaginary. The group of seven young artists from Atelier 12, one of the five ateliers of the School of Painting of the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, paraphrasing the lyrics of the song by the Liverpool band, promoted a site-specific work with the aim of amplify the potential of the essential elements shared by the individual expressive identities, aiming to develop the student's creative singularity through the deepening of the multiple declinations of the image in relation to the different languages ​​that characterize the contemporary art scene.
