The “EXpo” section is dedicated to her artistic production from 2009 to 2019, when Elena Xausa travelled outside abroad, first to Europe and then to New York, where she settled for a few years. Libraries, cafés, shared studios, trains and steamships, aeroplanes and cars, friends' living rooms, flower-filled meadows, Norwegian cliffs and American glades are just some of the settings in which her illustrations were created. “EXpo” continues with the most important collaborations and publications of these ten years of Elena's career, from the best-known international newspapers to the trendiest companies on the European and international scene.
“EXnovo” is the space dedicated to showing how Elena Xausa's energy continues its journey thanks to the works of 100 illustrators, designers and artists called upon to narrate the artist's creativity in the 100 previously unseen tributes: prints, originals, paintings, sculptures, ceramics, installations, videos and other works, which will be available to raise funds for AIRC - the Italian Association for Cancer Research. The artists include Matteo Cibic, Ale Giorgini, Luca Zamoc, Guido Scarabottolo, Giorgia Lupi, Mauro Gatti, Koes, Manuele Fior, Basik, Sarah Mazzetti, Emiliano Ponzi, Lorenzo Fonda, Lavinia Xausa, Luca Font, Massimo Giacon and Riccardo Guasco.
The exhibition ends with "EXcursus", a space where every visitor can experience the most intimate and profound sense of the creative spark, pausing and using space and time to transfer the inspiration drawn from the exhibition onto paper. The venue will be enhanced by a mural by Luca Zamoc, a street-artist who will be creating his work dedicated to Elena between the 12th and 14th of April.
"EXtra", a rich programme of creative days, with workshops, talks, meetings and experiences related to the world of illustration and more, will run throughout the exhibition.
