Che c'è di nuovo?

A Look at the Emerging Art Scene in Ticino


Che c’è di nuovo? has been representing for more than 10 years an unmissable event for those who want to discover the latest trends and the main protagonists of the artistic Ticinese scene. In its fourth edition, the show will present works of more then 10 artists under 40 years old selected by a commission. The first edition of Che c’è di nuovo? was presented in 2003 with the aim of offering to young and unknown artists the possibility to present their work in a museum institution, and allowing the public the opportunity to discover the creative ferment of the new generations. In this perspective the show documents the production of emerging artists working with different media from painting, sculpture and drawing to photography, video and performance. The exhibition also supports the integration of the local artistic reality within the national context, a commitment that has always characterized the work of the Museo Cantonale d’Arte and the Museo d’Arte di Lugano. In order to further promote the Ticino artistic scene outside the cantonal borders, Che c’è di nuovo? will have a “window” in Zurich thanks to the collaboration with the DIENSTGEBÄUDE Art Space Zürich, an independent art space, where the artists selected for the exhibition will be able to present their work from April 2 to April 30 2016. The exhibition is supported by the Percento culturale Migros Ticino and one of the artists will be honored with the Premio Migros Ticino di incoraggiamento alla creazione artistica a 10.000 Swiss francs award.
