The Blank Benefit is an annual meeting organized in order to support the association’s network activities, an evening of reunion for art and contemporary culture lovers.
In occasion of the next celebrations for the bicentenary of the death of Giacomo Quarenghi, The Blank has realized an important collaboration with Riccardo Beretta, a young Italian artist whose works are already well-known on the international artistic scenario.
The artist has realized for The Blank Benefit 2016 fifty small velvet and hand embroidered tapestries, of size 33×33 cm, each of them has been created as an unique piece thanks to a pictorial intervention and to a manual making process, available for the supporters of the association and for the lovers of contemporary art.
Each tapestry can be purchased with a minimum donation of 350 EUR, that gives also access for two people to the Benefit Dinner, which will take place on Thursday 15th December, in the frame of Spazio ALT.
The original artworks will be presented in occasion of BAF – Bergamo Arte Fiera (26th – 28th November 2016) at The Blank booth.
The Benefit dinner will also host a musical performance of a harpsichordist and a repertoire of musical pieces referable to the historical period of Quarenghi will be played.
