Pure Water Vision: Acea EcoArt Contest 2010 is the international contemporary art contest created 

by the EcoArt Project cultural platform together with Acea Group, the main Italian company 

managing integrated water services - water supply, sewage and water treatment. The contest will 

award the Acea EcoArt Prize 2010, consisting in an acquisitive prize for the value of € 10.000,00 

to the winner artwork that will become part of the Acea collection, it will also publish the “EcoArt 

Book Two” catalog (see EcoArt Book One already online) with 30 selected artworks and organize 

an exhibition in Rome for 10 finalists. 


The theme of Pure Water Vision: Acea EcoArt Contest 2010 requests artists to express their 

creativity to represent the relationship between water, man and the environment with relation to 

sustainable development of the planet. This reflection can also be extended to water pollution, 

water as source of life, water as source of renuable energy, process of desertification and 

emergency situations. All of which themes which simultaneously grip the planet and ask a series of 

burning social, anthropological, political and cultural questions. The objective is to highlight little 

known aspects of the water cycle, to stimulate, through the universal and metaphorical language of 

art, a series of reflections on what lies behind the apparent simplicity of pure water and what 

happens before and after the distribution of this precious resource that flows from taps in our 

homes and through waterworks, sewers and water treatment facilities. 


The contest, opened to works of photography, digital art, video art, painting and mixed media, 

sculpture, installation and performance, is curated by Laura Cherubini, art critic, curator and 

professor of Contemporary Art at the Fine Art Academy of Brera, Milan; Eugenio Viola, art critic 

and curator of the Project Room of Museum MADRE (Contemporary Art Museum DonnaREgina) 

of Naples; Alfredo Cramerotti, curator QUAD Derby, co-curator of the biennal Manifesta 8 and art 

critic. The Jury of the contest includes Carolina Italiano (director of editorial department, research 

and documentation center at  MAXXI ART), Matteo Lafranconi (head of cultural programs at 

Palazzo delle Esposizioni Roma), Costanza Paissan (curator at  MACRO contemporary art 

museum of Rome), Massimiliano Tonelli (editor in chief of Exibart), Guido Talarico (director and 

editor of INSIDEART) and Pierguido Cavallina (director of external relations and communication of 

Acea Group). 


Sustainable development and respect for the planet are the EcoArt Project’s goals.
