Exhibition by Cris Contini contemporary gallery at Porto Montenegro
Porto Montenegro is delighted to announce the upcoming exhibition “Love Brings Us Closer Than Ever” by Cris Contini Contemporary Gallery. Opening on the 13th February 2021, the exhibition will showcase a selection of local artwork created in response to the ongoing global pandemic.
The exhibition will be held at the Porto Montenegro Gallery and will present a different perspective on Valentine’s Day this year. The concept is to celebrate our love for others through an exhibition from local artists, presenting their creations as an object of historical investigation from which to learn. Much like Edvard Munch and Egon Schiele during the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918 who used their art to try and make sense of the world around them, all sorts of artists today have used lockdowns to capture this period in history.
The exhibition will invite local artists to present a work of art in response to the pandemic as a way to share and enjoy art in difficult times of isolation. The artwork will range from self-portraits to pictures of hospital intensive care units, empty streets and spooky urban landscapes to themes regarding climate change, family relationships and government control.
The beauty of this exhibition is that it will be accessible on a global scale, with the chosen artwork being showcased on the Cris Contini Contemporary Instagram and website (@criscontinicontemporary_mne / www.criscontinicontemporary.com).
