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.
