London is Open with Anna Icardi, Beatrice Zagato, and Antonio Brandimarte

  • 28 Oct 2017

On Saturday, 28th of October, Art Apartments will present the works by three Italian artists, winners of our first Art Residency – London is Open.

The artists are Anna Icardi, from Genoa, Beatrice Zagato, from Padua, and Antonio Brandimarte, from Roseto degli Abruzzi. They will spend the month of October 2017 in London, working on the topic London is Open.

Anna Icardi wants to mix indoor and outdoor, creating a pictorial fantasia which will echo the painted exterior. Beatrice Zagato aims to create a bridge between cultures, working together with an English artist. Antonio Brandimarte will take his inspiration from the English travellers who did the Grand Tour of Italy in the 17th and 18th centuries.

The artists have been selected among 60 Italian artists who applied for the residency. The residency has been funded by online fundraising on the crowdfunding platform BeArt. Backers decided the winners by voting on the 15 artists selected by a jury.

The event will take place the evening of Saturday 28th of October in a Chelsea flat, with catering by Italian chef Andrea Racalbuto.
