“44 young artists for the prize Dams”
National Gallery of Bologna May 19, 2006
A real biennial of young artists is the focus of the fifth edition of the Dams, the competition promoted by the Art section, University of Bologna, together with the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna on the whole national territory. The convergence of Dams and Academies, therefore, is designed to integrate skills and creative potential different but complementary. 44 young artists from all over Italy, selected by a jury composed of professors of Dams and the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, show their new works in the exhibition held from May 19 to June 9, 2006 at the prestigious National Gallery of Bologna, in the heart of the university district. As in the best contemporary exhibitions, the works of young people created with techniques of new generation are compared to those artists who favor instead a more traditional craftsmanship.
