20th Anniversary of the organisation aMAZElab, Art, Culture, Landscape

We are pleased to announce a series of events for the 20th Anniversary of the organisation aMAZElab, Art, Culture, Landscape. For the occasion, a special artistic/curatorial journey will be presented: international artists have been invited to work on the themes of geography and borders. The aim is to narrate the long pioneering path carried out by aMAZElab on the Mediterranean and Balkan coasts and along the Middle East, relating to art and society, community and territory, human being and nature.

 

20 years of intense activity: 5 prestigious European awards for the quality of our projects, innovation and networking capacity.

A long journey linking cultural subjects and practices, ideas, projects, debates, exhibitions, publications, universities and art academies, public and private institutions. With a constant focus on themes such as art, society, landscape, biodiversity, eco-design.

 

Spring Solstice Week

URBAN HIVES is also a program to monitor the quality of the air and the environment where we live, through the work of bees. On the ‘Spring Solstice Week’ a special workshop dedicated to botany and flowers for pollinators will be held online. Each of us can participate by improving the environment and the preservation of bees, sowing useful flowers, rich in pollen and nectar. Species that are particularly attractive to bees and butterflies include plants useful in cooking such as: rosemary, sage, borage, chives, thyme, basil, alfalfa, allium, clover. In addition, the beautiful blooms of mallow, lavender, phacelia, calendula, cosmos, bluebells, violets are also useful for bees.

The program is curated by Claudia Zanfi, Green Island’s director.

 

A series of talks and workshops will be held online

During the ‘Spring Solstice Week’ a series of talks and workshops will be held online.

The first workshop aims to experiment new practices and moments of reflection useful to understand the complexity of the phenomena of territorial transformation and to implement actions to safeguard biodiversity. In particular, the opening of the new apiary proposes activities on urban ecologies and urban beekeeping. Through the presentation of a new educational beehive, with transparent walls, it will be possible to observe the wonderful life of bees, their social organization, the cells with honey and flower’s pollen.

 

 

Biodiversity and creativity

Starting from Sunday March 21st, the day of ‘Spring Solstice’, our Green Island activities will be dedicated to pollinators, urban biodiversity and creativity.Inside the new Cascina Merlata Public Park in Milan, around the fascinating area of the water spring, we will unveil the 4th public apiary realized by artists, designers and beekeepers of the collective Atelier del Paesaggio.

This is a special project, the only one urban beekeeping program in Milan, which is focused on enhancing biodiversity and safeguarding pollinators in public areas of the city.

during the weekend of the Philosophy Festival in Modena

During the weekend of the Philosophy Festival in Modena, the exhibition of paintings 'PAESAGGI' will be inaugurated, with works from various private collections in the city. The exhibition represents the love for art and culture that has always characterized family life. On this occasion we want to present a portion of the collection dedicated to the theme of 'landscape', an element of comparison for many authors. On display are some of the great masters of Emilian painting.

 


The Atelier del Paesaggio group has won the Milan City Council's tender for the realization of green urban spacers.

The Atelier del Paesaggio group has won the Milan City Council's tender for the realization of green urban spacers.

The MiGARDEN project starts from the idea of rethinking the concept of 'urban vegetable gardens', adapted to the need to create social, green, pleasant spaces, with the scent of edible and aromatic essences, using climbing vegetables and eco-design elements.

Public art and Sociology

aMAZElab, Art, Culture, Landscape has conceived and produced important international programs such as GOING PUBLIC, a project of Public Art active for a decade (2002-2012), on urgent issues such as geography and borders, citizenship and politics, community and territory. GOING PUBLIC has involved a long list of international artists, geographers, urban planners, sociologists and researchers. It has activated a wide network of collaborations carried out both in Italy and abroad: Barcelona, Nicosia, Alexandria, Cairo, Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Beirut, Marseille, Palermo, Athens, Tangier, Rotterdam, Kiev, Gdansk, Rotterdam, Bristol, Skopie, Sarajevo.   

A unique and pioneering project

aMAZElab, Art, Culture, Landscape, has created unique and pioneering projects such as ‘A ticket to Baghdad’, presented in 2009 at the Tenth International Festival of Aleppo, Syria, a visual narrative of a trip to Iraq - the mother land of all Mediterranean cultures - realized in 2002 during the embargo and the ‘oil for food’ exchanges. 

A unique experience to meet artists, photographers, writers and students at the Academy of Fine Arts of the Iraqi capital, realized by dribbling the regime's police controls.
