Art is Now 2018

3th May - 28th May 2018 Galleria 360, Via Il Prato, 11/R, Florence, Italy.

“No one can explain how the notes of a Mozart melody, or the folds of a piece of Titian’s drapery, produce their essential effects. If you do not feel it, no one can by reasoning make you feel it.” (John Ruskin)

“Art is Now” is therefore a contemporary art exhibition of foreign artists, whose works are connected to the present, but at the same time they go “beyond” that hic et nunc since they are able to open the eyes of the mind and of the heart and to push us upwards.

After all, “the art is able to express and make visible the human need to go beyond what is seen, manifests the thirst and the search for the infinite. Indeed, it’s like an open door to the infinite, to a beauty and a truth that go beyond the everyday life” (Pope Benedict XVI).
