The show

An exhibition project born from an idea of ​​Simone Marchetti with the President of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, Patrizia Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and the photographers Luigi & Iango.

On the occasion of the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation presents "Blanco and Mahmood: the new world is here", an exhibition with photographs by the photographers and artists Luigi & Iango portraying the two Italian artists in competition at event, Blanco and Mahmood, protagonists of a cover and a reportage of the weekly Vanity Fair Italia.


Curated by Simone Marchetti, European editorial director of Vanity Fair, and by Irene Calderoni, curator of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation, the exhibition is proposed as an innovative, free and fertile ground where art, music, publishing and celebrities meet to experiment new paths, new collaborations and a different future for everyone. First of all, the title, "The new world is here", is the manifesto of the poetics and aesthetics of Blanco and Mahmood, two artists sui generis, far from any scheme, strong in a physicality and a musical sensitivity that break down barriers and boundaries managing to write new meanings not only within the world of music but more generally in that of costume, sexuality and above all gender identity.


Portraits by the photographers and artists Luigi & Iango, great and recognized narrators of the culture of celebrities, fashion and international beauty, in these images Blanco and Mahmood bring together the great tradition of the poses of characters in the mosaics of the Basilica of Santa Maria Assunta on the island of Torcello, in Venice, with the aesthetics of the New York aristocracy of Truman Capote's «Swans» portrayed by Richard Avedon up to the thorniest and dirtiest looks of the underground trends from which the two artists come. same narrated by the music of the two artists, by the pages of the weekly Vanity Fair and by the vocation of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation: it is the desire to write a new chapter in our history, our culture, our era.


A chapter that is even more free and necessary especially after the pandemic and even more so after the dramatic events of the war in progress in Ukraine, a conflict that risks further dividing the world causing it to sink into dynamics of power, struggle, violence and of regression that have nothing to do with the new world towards which we want to proceed as a country, Italy, and as a European Union.
