The choice of the name “Artgender” derives from the consideration for which the brand that identifies a particular company that operates in the sectors of event planning, publishing and communication has never been used; for us art is a real type of human being, that is, who is deeper. Does not exclude anyone but renames a category, composed of very different people within… elsewhere I think, origin and direction; but, united by a single factor: the artistic one. Anyone can be or feel like an artist as long as he is concerned with producing or simply approaching any form of expression. Our identity is necessary, in things, in people, in words, in ways… that teaching contributes to formation ‘individual evolution.

Needle, Thread and Knot

Today many children celebrate the World Kids Colouring Day, which wants to help those less lucky to make where they live more beautiful, inviting them to #color it!

So we too have chosen a non-monochromatic #sculpture “Needle, Thread and Knot”

☞ Do you know…

‣ The colors here are not only decorative but have a meaning: they represent exactly the three lines of Milan’s metropolitan (before the Municipality made two more). The work is located in Piazzale Cadorna, the main hub of Milanese transport and consists of two parts: on one side the needle – which you see here – on the other the knot, to evoke the passage in the subsoil just like the means of transport that connects the whole city

‣ The artists Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen, husband and wife, have managed to sculpt the metaphor of the place where their work would have been placed but, through these elements, they also paid tribute to Milan’s influence in the fashion industry
