The interdisciplinarity that defines Istituto Marangoni Firenze, the School of Fashion & Art, will take the attendants on a spatial journey from here to there and nowhere, through the digital, physical, and phy-gital space of our time.

BETWEEN ART & FASHION
Being the final art and fashion show for the graduating class of 2022, Everywhere, Here, Nowhere is the first time the two events will be held together. The event explores the space between digital and physical that connects art and fashion in service of young talents.
This event is the culmination of Istituto Marangoni Firenze‘s blend of academic courses, presenting a synergic union between the artworks and the fashion collections of the school’s best upcoming artists and designers.
The hosting venue, Museo Marino Marini, embodies the event’s concept of liminality, with Everywhere, Here, Nowhere being a space that transitions between borders and boundaries. Museo Marino Marini was initially a Renaissance church, later converted into an art museum; it is a place to experience the art of 20th Century Italian sculptor Marino Marini, whose primitivist works are still suspended in time and space.
Museo Marino Marini will now host an event including art and fashion, spatially between virtual and physical reality.
BETWEEN EVERYWHERE, HERE, AND NOWHERE
The event will also be held as a journey through the different floors of the museum, with the art show entrance occupying the museum’s basement and the catwalk on the floor above it.
Everywhere, Here, Nowhere celebrates our contemporary idea of realism, one that perceives a multifaceted reality straddling spaces that are physical, digital, or phy-gital – a mix of the two.
The show will feature a series of AI generated projection mapping produced by Monogrid on the walls of Museo Marino Marini, where images of nature reassembled through machine learning interacts with the room and the attendees, highlighting the technological mediation that we perceive in visual culture today.
The fashion show will showcase creations by the Best students graduating in Fashion Design in 2022, selected by an international jury. The catwalk will feature sound design by Emiliano Zelada, artist and Tutor at Istituto Marangoni Firenze, whose work emulates AI, translating inputs and stimuli into sound sequences.
The art exhibition features a lineup of digital video works by the year’s Best students graduating in Multimedia Arts. During the three-year programme, they learned to use different phy-gital tools to translate their realities of being Everywhere, Here, Nowhere at the same time.
Displayed in the crypt of Museo Marino Marini, the space and the atmosphere of the peculiar physical space will play an essential role in the exhibition experience. Low natural illumination and the event’s evening schedule will bring out the resulting digital spaces, an immersive reality parallel to our own, dark yet intimate.
Everywhere, Here, Nowhere looks forward to welcoming you in its in-between space, physically by invitation only at Museo Marino Marini Firenze at 9 pm CET or online by joining the live stream at 9.30 pm CET on Instagram or Facebook.
