PREMIO TERNA 03 • 2010
Premio Terna 3. «(+150) Vision: Origin and Power / Energy through generations», 2010
curated by Cristiana Collu and Gianluca Marziani.
The theme of the third edition celebrated the power of vision, intuition, of creative and constructive thinking, the capacity to project oneself and others into the future. It invited artists and the public to reflect on the fundamental moment of the intuition, the visionary idea, the central moment from which a project stems, an event, a decision that in itself encompasses strength, the power, energy that transforms an idea into actual reality, over time. Energy transmission spreads, surpasses, substantiates and crosses generations, communities, people, and history and becomes evolution, transformation, implementation. Reference to a number indicates a historical example of vision, that of our fathers, of a generation of Italians, those who in 1861 had sensed, originated and given energy to the Unification of Italy, whose 150th anniversary was celebrated in 2011, year in which the final exhibition of the Terna Prize 03 ended. The Prize, which in previous editions had gathered more than 5,000 participating artists with a total of 6,700 creations from all over Italy and abroad, in 2010 offered three novelties: opening of the call also to video art, support for AMACI contemporary art museums with the project ‘More Energy for Museums’, connection with China in the year of the EXPO. was implemented under the Patronage of: Presidency of the Council of Ministers – Information and Publishing Department; Ministry of Heritage and Cultural Activities ; Ministry of Foreign Affairs ; Ministry of Economic Development; Ministry of Youth ; Lazio Region, Province of Rome; Municipality of Rome.
