In consideration of the theoretical value of the exhibition proposal, the curator’s capability to shape it also practically, the conceptual complexity of the project and its formal structure, rooted in a deep dialogue with the artists themselves, the jury recognizes the need that ANDREA VILIANI felt to establish a dialogue between the works of art and exhibition space itself, and his will to commission the catalogue to two artists and an educational project to another artist not represented in the show.
