Onufri Prize XIX edition. Works by: Lucian Bedeni, Yllka Gjollesha, Genti Korini, Mariana Kostandini, Remijon Pronja, Alketa Ramaj, Violana Murataj, Arjan Shehaj
The National Gallery of Arts is pleased to host the 19th edition of the visual arts exhibition 'Onufri', opening on 28 December 2012, at 18 hrs. The exhibition is entitled 'Perchance to Dream' and is curated by the Italian curator Daniele Capra. The title comes from a Shakespearean verse from Hamlet's famous soliloquy. Capra has chosen this title because, according to him, there is a noticeable correspondence between an anguished and confused Hamlet found in a difficult personal circumstance yet, regardless, finds strength to think philosophically about the world and its enigmas. The Albanian artists challenge and defy the difficult everyday reality, managing to offer personal solutions. But if Hamlet chose the road of vendetta to solve his personal problems, the artists in this exhibition propose and search for new ways and solutions to overcome them. Artists participating are: Lucian Bedeni, Yllka Gjollesha, Genti Korini, Mariana Kostandini, Remijon Pronja, Alketa Ramaj, Violana Murataj, Arjan Shehaj.
