Palazzo Gromo Losa will host a solo exhibition of the young artist Silvia De Bastiani, originally from Feltre, who in 2020 with the watercolor Dolomiti, Pale di San Martino, painted en plein air at high altitude, won the second edition of the Be Natural National Painting Competition / Be Wild organized by the Cassa di Risparmio di Biella Foundation on the occasion of Selvatica 2020.
Palazzo Gromo Losa will also host the On Assignment exhibition. A wild life, which presents the images of the reportages made by photographer Stefano Unterthiner in the period 2006-2017, commissioned by the National Geographic magazine. A retrospective that wants to invite the public to discover the world of nature photography, and tries to tell through the life and gaze of a great photographer, our relationship with nature and other species.
Still at Palazzo Gromo Losa, among the garden, outdoor spaces and internal rooms, the works of Jessica Carroll will be exhibited, who since the 1980s has been working on the theme of bees and nature in general, creating highly suggestive installations.
Glanzlichter, the largest nature photography competition in Germany and one of the most important in Europe, returns to Palazzo Ferrero, in which thousands of photographers participate every year; a journey around the world, with a unique selection of magnificent images, from landscape to animals in nature.
Palazzo Ferrero will host the exhibitions related to Nuvolosa - the festival of comics in Biella, an event dedicated to comics and organized by the Councilorship for Youth Policies of the City of Biella in collaboration with the cultural association Creativecomics of Vercelli, for the first time in partnership with Selvatica. The theme of the Nuvolosa Award, a national artistic competition dedicated to young people between 16 and 35 years from which the festival was born, will in fact be “The Nature that will come”.
The collective exhibition of the Biella Fotoclub will also find hospitality at Palazzo Ferrero, with a selection of the most evocative naturalistic-themed shots of the members of the association.
As always, Selvatica will also involve Palazzo La Marmora, which will host a solo exhibition by the Japanese engraver Keisei Kobayashi, author of highly suggestive compositions.
