Art Heals, presented by LAZZARO_Art doesn’t sleep, focuses on the use of art and its ability to heal us during a difficult historical period. The projection of artworks, showcased, bring attention to different or similar Covid-19 experiences and emotions that each city or artist is living, in a parallel worldwide pandemic condition.
A selection of international photographers is debuted, for the first time, in the 5th Edition of the project allowing us to highlight the scenario in every city, where Lazzaro’s artists have produced their works.
While museums and galleries still remain partially closed, the 5th edition of LAZZARO_art doesn’t sleep, will illuminate and dress the city buildings worldwide. All public spaces such as streets, squares, courtyards, gardens, monuments, forced into silence in these past months, will continue to be colored with the projection of artworks produced by the international artists participating in Art Heals.
LAZZARO_art doesn’t sleep was born from the darkness of the Covid-19 lockdown, from the desire to break down the physical and psychological barriers of our homes, using the computer and the projectors as the only means available. LAZZARO_art doesn’t sleep tries to connect people at all latitudes, to trust and mobilize citizenship, and to allow anyone who wants to “play” with the power of art outside the art system» state founders Laura Mega, Italian visual artist and Claudia Pecoraro, curator and researcher.
