AQUA Happenings- Lake Maggiore, Italy

Isola dei Pescatori  

Stresa (VB), Lake Maggiore, Italy

Saturday 26 May and Sunday 27 May, 2018

Under the patronage of UN Water and the City of Stresa, Lake Maggiore, as part of the traveling exhibition AQUA following Geneva (2017) and São Paulo (2017-2018), ART for The World proposes its Italian premiere of AQUA- a series of happenings, films, small exhibitions and discussions on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 May. Happenings will take place on the Isola dei Pescatori, the smallest of the Borromean Islands on Lake Maggiore, where visitors will have the opportunity to participate in the participating artists' investigations on contemporary issues of water.

The global theme of water is a fundamental theme, its management is one of the major challenges and objectives of the 21st century for the future of all forms of life on Earth. Water is a natural resource par excellence and at the center of the reflections on the consequences of climate change.
