From 23 Septmber to 1 October 2022

Art Competition “Contemporary FLAVORS and ART"


CARP Associazione di Promozione Sociale and Fossa dell 'Abbondanza in collaboration with the Pallavicini22 Art Gallery exhibition space and with the Ghigi-Pagnani Collection Archive, announce a competition entitled "Contemporaneamente SAPORI e ARTE" with the purpose to promote and enhance the flavor in contemporary art.

The competition is sponsored by ALMA – La Scuola Internazionale di Cucina Italiana, and relies on the support of RomagnaBanca Bcc - Bellaria Igea Marina and Gioielleria Cellarosi - Ravenna.

The theme of the Competition is centered on the artistic and culinary union, or the sensation of taste to be translated into an object or image - not didactic - in order to make the flavors visible and / or perceptible with the other senses different from taste. It is a procedure similar to synaesthesia - for which terms belonging to different sensory spheres are combined - already used, for example, in the symbolist poetry from Baudelaire to Rimbaud and in art by Kandinsky, with the association of colors and musical notes.

The competition is open to all adult artists, without limits of sex or nationality.

To participate in the Competition, the works must be classified as wall art, even if in full stylistic and technical freedom, and must be unpublished.

Among all the participants in the Competition, the Technical Jury will choose the winners of three prizes.
