The Project

The collaboration between NABA and Yakult Italy, created to enhance the fascinating world of microbiology through the visual arts, with the project BACTERIART, from invisible to visible, which involved the students of the Bachelor in Painting and Visual Arts and the Master in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies of the Academy, culminated in the digital event Bacteriart Day, which was held on April 21.

Eight selected works exhibited in the exhibition, reviewed by an international jury chaired by Alessandro Cannavò, Editor-in-Chief of Corriere della Sera, and composed of eminent personalities in the artistic and scientific field, to confirm once again the value and wealth that arise from the meeting of different skills: Lucia Aspesi, Assistant Curator of Pirelli Hangarbicocca, Patrizia Brigidi, Rector’s Delegate for European Research Department of Medical and Surgical Sciences of the University of Bologna, Eva Fabbris, Exhibition Curator of Fondazione Prada, Arianna Rolandi, Scientific Director and External Relations of Yakult Italy, Nomeda & Gediminas Urbonas, Artists and Professors of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - MIT, Cambridge, in addition to the contact persons of the Academy: Marco Scotini, NABA Visual Arts Department Head and Andris Brinkmanis, Course Leader of the BA in Painting and Visual Arts.
