Art and food”, the exhibition curated by Germano Celantrunning through 1st November 2015 -, was recently opened at the Milan Triennale Design Museum, which is the only thematic area placed in the Milan city centre of event Expo Milan 2015. It was a smashing display of art exploring the relationship with food, emphasized by many references and an amazing selections of objects and furniture. I start talking about that in reverse, showing  many works being in third section of the exhibition which is placed on the first floor of museum, featuring celebrated contemporary artworks (paintings, sculptures, videos and installations). That is the part of exhibition I appreciated mostly for its lightness though the myriad of artworks that here were on show – among whom I was glad to see the works by Joel-Peter Witkin, Gregory Crewdson, an installation by the fashion designer Issey Miyake along with the ones made by other celebrated artists.

Art and food”, la mostra curata da Germano Celantche prosegue fino all’ 1 novembre 2015 -, è stata recentemente inaugurata presso il Museo del Design della Triennale di Milano, unica area tematica ubicata nel centro di Milano dell’ evento Expo Milano 2015. Una formidabile rassegna d’ arte che esplora la relazione con il cibo, enfatizzata da plurimi riferimenti e una incredibile selezione di oggetti e arredi. Ne comincio a parlare a ritroso, mostrando varie opere che si trovano nella terza sezione della mostra che è ubicata al primo piano del museo, di cui sono protagoniste vare opere d’ arte contemporanea (dipinti, sculture, collage, video e installazioni). Questa è la parte della mostra che ho apprezzato di più per la sua leggerezza nonostante la myriade delle opere d’ arte ivi esposte – tra cui mi ha rallegrato vedere le opere di Joel-Peter Witkin, Gregory Crewdson, un’ installazione del fashion designer Issey Miyake insieme a quelle di molti altri celebri artisti.

Bea Bongiasca, very young and bright creative debuted during the Milan Fashion Week, presenting at the celebrated Milanese concept store “10 Corso Como, “No rice for life”, the first jewelry collection she made. A catchy set-up, ideated by the designer Christoph Radl and enriched by the photography by Giovanni Castel, presented the fun and refined jewelry, successfully making concrete the connection between Eastern and Western culture. That is the idea which has inspired the work by jewelry designer. Her fine craftsmanship, is embodied in the creations reinterpreting the rice, its shape and what it evokes, an iconic food representing East, being a need and becoming something being much more precious. A pleasing lightness to tell about two different cultures meeting themselves. A tale about the contemporary times and globalization under the sign of freshness and innovation, featuring pearls, gold and silver, necklaces, earrings, cuffs and rings having smashing interchangeable enamel decorations, symbols, words and nice slogans.
