Conceived by artist Matteo Mauro and presented by KōArt Unconventional Place under the patronage of the University of Catania, Il Mio Barocco is a cultural event that aims to revitalise the roots of a fundamental piece in the history of art.
Through baroque waves, Matteo Mauro re-emerges in his hometown Catania, Sicily. From the artist’s personal reinterpretation of the Baroque style arises an encounter between classical and contemporary art that flows into a creation which is totally assimilable to abstract art.
The project will feature a series of not-to-be-missed events, public presentations, exhibitions, performances and workshops in different venues in Catania across May, June and July 2019.
