Le stanze dell’arte (Young artists award)

Thirty-five young artists from Switzerland gave space to their inventiveness by expressing themselves in various techniques, from graphic design to painting, photography, sculpture and artistic video. The artists were selected following a competition promoted by the m.a.x. museum and the Municipality of Chiasso in synergy with the Rotary Club. The participants were invited to express themselves on the theme chosen by the Centro Culturale Chiasso for the 2021-2022 artistic and exhibition season, namely "creative genesis".
