"The work is part and expression of a complex and articulated project that the artist has been developing for several years, by which tends to outline the geopolitical atlas of a world in perpetual transformation, highlighting the critical points. The work of Jodice tells the communities and their places through an essential language and an analytical look, but always open to further reading." Here are the reasons for the jury by Laura Cherubini, Christian Marinotti and Cristiana Perrella, who chose the diptych What We Want, Tulum Pueblo, M05AB, 2006 by Francesco Jodice – presented by Michela Rizzo Gallery in Venice – for the eighth edition of the award Rotary Club Milano Brera for Contemporary Art and Young Artists.


“Art and politics: social and civil commitment” was the theme of this edition, which has also seen the final artist Barbara Bloom (Galleria Raffaella Cortese- Milan), Damir Očko (Galleria Tiziana Di Caro – Napoli), Alicja Kwade ( König Galerie – Berlin), Francesco Jodice (Galleria Michela Rizzo – Venice), Regina José Galindo (Prometeo Gallery – Milan / Lucca), Eugenio Miccini (Fritelli Contemporary Art – Florence), Lawrence Abu Hamdan (Laveronica Contemporary Art – Modica). The awards tomorrow in the talks.
