Associazione Culturale Heyart was founded in 2010 to promote Italian contemporary art and craft through public events, fairs and exhibitions. Heyart organizes exhibitions and cultural events in non traditional spaces, such as parks and other public venues that are yet to be included in touristic routes. Managing projects from proposal to installation, Heyart highlights and supports local artists, particularly emerging young artists and connects them with the audience and the city of Florence.
IL SALOTTO DEGLI ARTISTI
Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. Still today, it is a vibrant place where numerous artists translate traditional artistic techniques into new visual languages. Il Salotto degli Artisti provides access to a lesser known Florence: a peek into the most contemporary artistic spaces and into the life and studios of international artists based in Florence.
Every month we will meet a different artist working with the most diverse media and techniques, from multimedia installations to video projections, and artistic spaces that are the platforms for creative innovation to flourish.
The second series of Salotto Degli Artisti is presented in collaboration with the Rochester Art Center and curated by art historian Giulia Angeli, based in Florence, and Zoe Cinel, Curator at the Rochester Art Center.
