the winners of the Prisma Art Prize exhibition are: 
Giuliano Sacchero, Corey Jordan, Marianna Iozzino, Hendrik Jaich

the exhibition is curated by Marco Crispano

The selection of works revolves around the pictorial reworking of the concept of flesh. Paintings in the exhibition are the culmination of research paths developed by some of the artists participating in the first year of the prize. All the artists included have carried out an intimate research over time on the expression of their feelings through the flesh, representing its microscopic image, deforming it, contextualising it or schematising it. Extremely different sensitivities have given rise to heterogeneous paths, driven not by conceptualisations or intellectual elaborations but by intimate expressive needs.

The flesh is the means by which we perceive ourselves within the sensitive world and the sensitive world itself. Our presence in space and time is closely linked to the flesh, as well as the perception we have of ourselves and of our image.
18 works by the four artists of small, medium and large format will be exhibited, made in different painting techniques on various supports, including canvas, cardboard and wooden boards.
The exhibition will be installed in the amazing BePart setting, the largest collective ever made in the world, currently on display at the Montez Atelier and which sees more than 30,.000 small-format artworks on display, created by 1000 artists from all over the world, including artists participating in the Prisma Art Prize.
