MILAN.- The exhibition “the sea is my land. Artisti dal Mediterraneo”, designed and produced by BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas, curated by Francesco Bonami and Emanuela Mazzonis, reaches Milan.

The exhibition can be visited free of charge until Sunday 24 August, at Milan’s Triennale.

«“the sea is my land. Artisti dal Mediterraneo” is a project of which we are particularly proud,» said Fabio Gallia, CEO of BNL and Director of BNP Paribas Group for Italy. «Bringing this exhibition to Milan is, for us, a confirmation of the Bank’s commitment to the support of art and culture, in the conviction that this heritage represents a form of energy, the energy of emotion, capable of contributing to economic growth, above all in a country as rich in culture as ours. With the show at the Triennale, we also wish to reinforce our close ties to the city of Milan, our customers, and the 3,500-strong staff of BNL and BNP Paribas Group companies who live and work in this city».

Using the media of photography and video art, the exhibition explores the Mediterranean area. “the sea is my land. Artisti dal Mediterraneo” comprises 140 works by 23 artists, all from countries bordering the Mediterranean. It represents a review of art from an area comprising 46,000 kilometres of coastline, touching three continents (Europe, Asia and Africa) and two cultural hemispheres, the west and the east.

From Syria to Israel, from Spain to Algeria, from Egypt to Albania, the objective of “the sea is my land” is to highlight, using the universal language of images, the incessant metamorphosis of the Mediterranean, an area of constant interchange where art, a language on a higher plane, is capable of overcoming social and cultural barriers, religious diversities and ethnic conflict, encouraging a multi-faceted, articulate form of communication amongst all the peoples involved.

The Mediterranean, as suggested by its etymological root “at the centre of many lands,” has always been a crucial point of focus for complex social and cultural mechanisms, multiple ideologies, unusual affinities and unexpected harmonies, making it a constant source of inspiration for art.

On the website bnl.it, with the page theseaismyland.bnl.it, and on the Bank’s social media channels, there are images of the works, photos of the artists and of the opening, and all information regarding the exhibition.

With the show “the sea is my land”. Artisti dal Mediterraneo”, BNL provides yet further confirmation of its attention and sensitivity to the development of culture, a factor that promotes growth and development for both individuals and society as a whole.
