Preview

In the ex-votos, simple but energetic objects, the tacit alliance with the divine is materialized individually, without mediation, to strengthen mankind in the fight against the inevitable suffering of living. The ex votos testifies to an expectation that has not been disappointed, that particular "grace received" that has brought daily life back within the norm, but it is also an act of supplication and gratitude at the same time. They speaks a simple language that still retains an immense visual seduction today. From the ex votos that reproduce anatomical parts, to the multi-material ones, made with different techniques, from small devotional objects to painted tablets, these strange objects have crowded shrines and altars of churches for centuries. A tradition that seems to have been lost.

The ex-votos, which over the centuries has represented a form of devotion and bond with the divine, now represents for the artist the means to get in touch with own talent, the inspirational muse, and also, to thank for the gift of creativity received.

Elagibility

We work in collaboration with a talented network of publishers, dealers, curators and arts professionals, providing artists with customized services and opportunities to have their works exhibited, published and represented through various platforms and magazines. The exhibition is open to worlwide artists invited to present one or more works in any form, material and genre.

Venue Exhibition

The contemporary art exhibition set up at the renaissance venue of Palmieri Foundation (deconsecrated Church of Saint Sebastian) in Lecce. This place establishes a dialogue with the ancient works of sacred art that brings the themes of devotion and votive tradition back into the contemporary world.

Art Residency

In addition to the exhibition, there is the possibility of making an art residency in Lecce. The artists will be guests for about 10 days, during which they will create the works site-specific and to be exhibited at the foundation. Artists interested in the residency must notify us by October 20th, so that we can guarantee accommodation.
