IMAGINE – ART SUPPORTS ART
Exactly 40 years after John Lennon’s death, 40 Italian artists from the world of visual arts donated their own original work inspired by the former Beatle to raise funds for music and entertainment workers. This support of Art for Art proves that there is a common feeling between artists from different means of expression.
The “Imagine” campaign, launched by Rolling Stone Italia in partnership with LiveAll, was supported by artists such as Paolo Troilo, Marco Lodola, Max Papeschi, Anna Godeassi, Paolo Maggis, Mr.Wany, Giulio Vesprini and Giordano Floreancig, as well as conductors, singers and musicians such as Morgan (who designed the poster for the initiative), Sascha Goetzel, Andy, Enrico Gabrielli and Gianluca De Rubertis.
The operation, inspired by the famous “Bag One” created in 1970 and containing 14 lithographs relating to the artist’s married life, was launched on the 8th of December 2020, the anniversary of John Lennon’s death.
Technical partner of the initiative is Deodato/format Arte (deodato.com), one of the most authoritative online art galleries, which made its experience and professionalism in the sale of works of art available.
Scena Unita is the fund for workers in the performing arts to which the results of the initiative were allocated. The Scena Unita Fund is managed by Cesvi in collaboration with “La Musica Che Gira” and Music Innovation Hub.
