On Friday 26, Saturday 27, Sunday 28 May, Bergamo hosts the seventh edition of The Blank ArtDate.
The Blank ArtDate reinvents itself proposing a completely original format with more than forty events between exhibitions, conferences, special projects, educational workshops and extraordinary openings of major places in town.
The Blank ArtDate reflects on the theme of the Holy, reinterpreting rituals and gestures able to unite people in a common spirit. Taking as reference the ancient sagre – from the Latin sacrum – that were moments of communion between men and the holy, The Blank ArtDate asks numerous artists to reinterpret this fundamental subject through their contemporary artistic practice connecting tradition and modernity. The reflection on folk rituals is intertwined with the interpretation of the holy, considered as an experience inextricably linked to the effort made by humans in order to build a word endowed with meaning.
