Yes yes yes..Very proud to represent Italy ;-)
Fifth edition of the Biennale JCE | Jeune Création Européenne Montrouge, France, 15 October - 3 November 2015
Montrouge welcomes Europe! The Biennale JCE, a group exhibition featuring the works of 56 emerging artists from France, Denmark, Poland, Latvia, Italy, Spain and Portugal, offers a preview of new directions in European art.
The Biennale JCE seeks out new talents as it continues to build its network by forging links to help propel young artists onto the international scene. In 2015, the Biennale opens its doors to Northern and Eastern Europe with the addition of Denmark, Latvia and Poland to its network of partner countries.
The event is an extension of the city of Montrouge’s dynamic cultural policy, which provides strong ongoing support for emerging artists and develops synergies with other European cities. A unique panorama of a new generation of artists, the exhibition provides a veritable map of the hopes, questions and concerns of contemporary artists on the European continent, juxtaposing a variety of artistic approaches and environments, some of which collide while others reso- nate in terms of vision, practice and media.
At the opening, a prestigious jury will award the Grand Prix JCE, which offers scholarships and residencies in Montrouge and Amarante to three of the artists participating in the exhibition. Among the jury members are such personalities from the worlds of art and culture as Matthieu Lelièvre of Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac, screenwriter and producer Etienne Comar, MAC/VAL director Alexia Fabre, and Vittoria Matarrese, director of cultural programming at the Palais de Tokyo.
This new edition of the Biennale kicks off a travelling group exhibition that will last nearly two years and will be shown in all the partner cities. From Le Beffroi in Montrouge, it will be shipped north to Hjørring, Denmark, east to Wroclaw, Poland and Cesis, Latvia, and south to Como, Italy, Figueres, Spain, and Amarante, Portugal.
