Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That is surprise!
The exceptional venue of Palazzo Castromediano Vernazza in Lecce, a beautiful and baroque town located in Apulia, will be the setting of VISIONARY ART SHOW from May 12 to 30, 2017.
Visionary Art Show is the only one in the world Contemporary Art Exhibition & Show all together and has the attributes of a Biennial and the set direction and script as a Visionary Film. One of a kind!
VISIONARY ART SHOW is an exclusive exhibition-event, taking place outside the usual contemporary art contexts, intended to encourage an authentic dialogue between artists, the audience and art professionals, which wishes to emphasize the quality of the artistic discourse in the contemporary sphere.
During the show the audience will be able to view, in an intimate and relaxed atmosphere, the artworks of indivisual artists worldwide coming from the International art scene.
The project involves artists whose practices stand out in terms of high-level curatorship, effective scouting, and the creation of an independent market in spite of the moment’s trends.
Each room of the challenging spaces of Palazzo Vernazza Castromediano will bring in relation the works of two or more artists, some of them expressly realized for the building’s suggestive premises, in a carefully well-defined setting.
Built during the 16th century by the Castromediano Vernazza family – protagonist of Reinassance and Baroque – Palazzo Castromediano Vernazza houses a splendid and unique iconographical cycle, made of grotesques and floreal sculpture on local stone over the facade of Palace, the Temple and Purgatorium of Goddess Iside in the basement.
