It’s not only rock’ n’ roll baby!”, a wonderful exhibition under the sign of contemporary times – which will be opened on 23rd June 2010, 6:00 pm, at the Milan Triennale Bovisa, 6:00 pm, curated by the eclectic and pioneer Jerome Sans who successfully evidenced by the projects he organized during the last two decades – as the exhibition “Live” at the Palais de Tokyo, solo exhibitions of artists as the Chicks On Speed, Brian Eno and also creating a rock band, the Liquid Architecture – that “music is the raw materials of many plastic artists”. Thus the bright and charming curator asserts who talked with enthusiasm about his project and the privileged relationship between music and art:“an intimate and unusual story” of a series of artists – as Andy, Antony, Devendra Banhart, Bianca Casady, Chicks On Speed, Peter Doherty, Herman Dune, Kyle Field, Fischerspooner, The Kills, Patti Smith and Alan Vega – “for whom art is the root of a parallel artistic universe”. The exhibition will be open to public from 24th June to 26th September 2010: a not to be missed happening for all the ones who are devoted to art and cross-culture!

It’s not only rock’ n’ roll baby!”, una mostra meravigliosa all’insegna della contemporaneità- che sarà inaugurata il 23 giugno 2010, alle ore 18:00, presso il Pala Bovisa della Triennale di Milano, curata dall’eclettico e pionieristico Jerome Sans che ha felicemente mostrato con i progetti da lui organizzato durante gli ultimi due decenni – quali la mostra Live al Palais de Tokyo, le mostre monografiche di artisti quali le Chicks On Speed, Brian Eno e creando anche un gruppo rock, i Liquid Architecture – che la musica sia la materia prima di numerosi artisti plastici. Così afferma il brillante e charmant curatore che mi ha parlato entusiasta del suo progetto e della relazione privilegiata che intercorre tra la musica e l’arte:“una storia intima e singolare” di una serie di artisti – quali Andy, Antony, Devendra Banhart, Bianca Casady, Chicks On Speed, Peter Doherty, Herman Dune, Kyle Field, Fischerspooner, The Kills, Patti Smith e Alan Vega – “per i quali l’arte è la radice di un universo artistico trasversale”. La mostra sarà aperta al pubblico dal 24 giugno al 26 settembre 2010: un appuntamento imperdibile per tutti coloro che sono devoti all’arte e alla contro-cultura!
