The 2019 opens with a new Murate Art Lab: a free artist's workshop for children and young people (from 8 to 13 years) on Saturday 12 January from 16 to 18. The protagonist of this first 2019 appointment is Lorenzo Pezzatini, which from the 1977 chooses as a "street companion" the Wire: a filamentous object made of acrylic colors in the primary colors (blue, yellow, red) counterpointed by small excrescences in the same colors. Pezzatini - with a Masters in Fine Arts from the University of Massachusetts and over 20 years of teaching at the Studio Art College International (SACI) of Florence - is in fact presented as producer of signs and indications, a performer who uses the Wire to bind, underline and reinvent the world around him. The interaction with the public and its social value are the central elements of his artistic research: his works lead the public to re-examine the ordinary reality, offer a new look and bridge the world of everyday life and the extraordinary and spiritual world art.
The workshop participants will be invited to approach Pezzatini's poetics and take part in his artistic action: a thread of colors will materially give life to networks of relationships that will occupy new spaces of creativity, reading and interpretation. Thanks to drawings, paintings and collages children and young people will be able to participate personally in the art process, experiencing the infinite potential of artistic languages in their relationship with the world.
