“BI GREEN” Make the Difference! First Biennial exhibition on recycling, reuse and sustainability.
"BI GREEN" is the first Biennial exhibition of contemporary art and design in Sardinia on the theme of recycling, reuse and sustainability.
"BI GREEN" aims to raise awareness of respect for the environment, health and energy saving, through the collective exhibition of works of art and eco-design, made in whole or in part with reused materials, that represent an original and creative proposal.
The Biennale is an important part of a larger project called “ATLANTIDE”, promoted by the Lariso Cooperative and financed by the CON IL SUD Foundation through the “2012 Environment Notice - Towards Zero Waste”. In a world saturated with products, this collective exhibition aims to be an opportunity to demonstrate that it is possible to regenerate what exists, extend the life of what seemed to have ended its life and economic cycle, rebelling against the logic of use and throws. An opportunity to promote old and new craftsmanship.
Bi Green is an Exhibition / Award but it also proposes itself as an "open construction site" and an artistic and cultural meeting place for everyone, aimed at knowledge, the exchange of ideas and experiences in the field of sustainability, art and design. Bi Green will have a full calendar of events with guests, moments of study, debates, shows and educational workshops for children and adults.The Biennale also boasts a suggestive exceptional venue, the premises of the Ex Artillery in Nuoro, extraordinarily open before 'now only on the occasion of the “FAI Spring Day 2013”.
The deadline to register for the Award is the 10 May 2015.
