Together to award sustainable, original and creative art, this is the aim of the synergy born among Arte Laguna Prize, Corepla (National Consortium for the Collection and Recycling of Plastic packages) and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice, through the Ca’ Foscari sostenibile program.
Since 2015 Arte Laguna Prize has created a special section dedicated to Art and Sustainability promoting a sensitization of the artistic gesture, of creativity, of design and in general of the visual and performing arts towards the Reuse Recycle Reduce strategies. The Prize receives the moral patronage of the Ministry for the Environment and Protection of Land and Sea.
Arte Laguna Prize, through art, aims to raise awareness within the local and international community to the issues of sustainability, specifically enhancing the RRR (Reuse, Recycle, Reduce) strategies with a focus on the recovery and valorization of certain materials. For 2018 the ARS Prize: Art Reuse and Sustainability will focus on plastic and, in particular, on plastic packagings, with the support of the Corepla consortium.
The winner, who will win a cash prize of 3.000 €, will be selected by a special commission including, in addition to Igor Zanti, curator and head of jury of Arte Laguna Prize, also Ca’ Foscari University and Corepla. The official announcement will take place during the opening of the finalists’ exhibition on March 16th, 2019 at the Arsenale of Venice.
