Starting from April 30th, the cultural association Made will be hosting BEAUTIFUL MEN, a photographic project by Marcello Bonfanti. It is a visual narration of a journey in three countries of three different continents, Cuba, China and Tonga, in pursuit of the intimate discovery of a universal dynamic: the assertion of a gender identity which differs from the biological one.
On the occasion of the exhibition four contemporary jewellery artists will produce customized works, specifically created for the event : Seulgi Kwon (South Korea) will interpret Beijing with jewellery created in silicone, Ana Hagopian (Argentina) will interpret the mood of Tonga with her jewellery created in paper and Myriam B (Italy) will interpret Cuba with her creations using varied materials; finally the designer Paola Volpi, will produce jewellery with industrial filters as a tribute to the world of drag queens.
