BNL BNP Paribas Group presents at the Triennale di Milano “the sea is my land – Artists from the Mediterranean”. The exhibition conceived and produced by the Bank, curated by Francesco Bonami and Emanuela Mazzonis, is a photographic and video art show that examines the Mediterranean area, interpreted not only geographically but as a cultural basin that unites different civilizations (On the left Marie Bovo: Cour Intérieure).
The exhibition will be open to the public gratuitously from Tuesday June 17th to Sunday August 24th , 2014. “the sea is my land – Artists from the Mediterranean” gathers together 140 works of 23 artists coming from countries boarding the Mediterranean, area in which BNL BNP Paribas Group has a widespread presence. From Syria to Israel, from Spain to Algeria, passing through Egypt and Albania, the message that we receive from “the sea is my land” is that the universal code of photography/art, in this exhibition describes the never ending changes of the Mediterranean, territory of cultural dialogue where art with its impartial language, is able to go beyond social barriers, religious pluralism and ethnic dispersion to favor peaceful communication among those involved.
With this appointment BNL strengthens its relationship with the city of Milan and its territory, by continuing to support culture as a growth factor and development for people and collectivity, by sustaining some of its most important cultural events.
