Another great artist revealed for the @MecenateFineArt exhibition: @FedericoClapis lives his art as a materialization of his experiences, and as a medium of introspection to share with his community. pic.twitter.com/oFEcNcHUyu

Organized by O-MEE’s in-house curator Adele Lazzeri, the exhibition aims to explore the future as a sculptural object — celebrating the possible futures that might come from looking, experiencing, and being, through the lens of nature, technology, and imagination.
“Drawing connections between these artists’ practices, we look at the exchange and interaction between human malleability and technological potential. From hybrid realities to landscapes from other lives, to assemblages from other planets,” shared the platform in a press release.
In-person viewing at the Mecenate Fine Art Gallery in Rome will be available through to May 13.
For those unable to make it to Rome, Plastic Futures is dually available to view as a virtual twin gallery floating in space, with O-MEE inviting viewers to observe their reactions “when confronted with the messy reality of humanity and the cosmos.”
Elsewhere in art, ACK reveals ‘The Broken Keys,’ a collection two years in the making.
