The LdM Gallery presents Body of Evidence, a student-oriented exhibition introducing figurative drawings that focus on the expression of the female form.
Presented to the public are the works of artists and current LdM students Emma Hermans, Elise Hillbrand and Lovisa Rönngren, created and developed during the LdM Advanced Drawing Course, in the short period from October to December 2018. With the use of gestural marks and abstract interpretations, the works of each artist interpret complex concepts of reflection and identity. Each artist uniquely approaches these notions, producing works that push boundaries within each composition to express the creative process through a personal and authentic style.
Curated by Martin Figura, LdM Professor of the Department of Painting, Drawing and Mixed Media, the exhibition Body of Evidence will be open from December 5th to January 30th.
After the launch, the LdM Gallery will be open weekly from Tuesday to Thursday, 5pm – 8pm. From December 17th to January 30th the LdM Gallery is open by appointment. For more information, please contact Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici at +39 055 287360.
Opening night will include a free aperitivo.
The LdM Gallery is a project by Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici, a space where academic research and artistic experimentation meet within a professional setting.
Founded in 1973, Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici prides itself with having core values aimed towards ensuring students achieve the skills necessary to creatively meet the challenges of their respective fields, skills accomplished through interdisciplinary projects and engagement within the professional sector, as well as through the interaction with the local community.
The LdM Gallery closely aides in working towards this goal, creating an efficient space for showcasing interdisciplinary fields of art within the school. The overall mission of the LdM Gallery is to encourage the development of creativity and sophistication within the student body, generate an open dialogue between students and the public, and foster opportunities for students to experience the reality of the art world beyond an institutional setting and gain professional experience through their artwork.
