Dino Zoli Foundation of Contemporary Art is a project dedicated to promoting and sustaining Italian culture at home and abroad. An important collection of modern and contemporary art is permanently hosted in its exhibition area. The Foundation, located in Italy, is the cultural driver of the business activities listed under the DZ Group Holding and it has been arranging cultural events in Singapore, during the Race Week, since 2017.
Indeed, through the years, on the occasion of the Formula 1 Grand Prix, Dino Zoli Foundation has worked with DZ Engineering (one of Zoli Group’s companies, which develops illumination and telecommunication systems on the circuit of Marina Bay) to create four exhibitions:
2017 “Motor Valley, a tale. An Italian project” a photographic exhibition by Mindy Tan and Wilfred Lim, 2018 “Cube Temple. An ethereal creation of wire mesh in Singapore” by Edoardo Tresoldi, one of the most important European artists, 2019 “Everything is illuminated. Geographies of Views Between History and Contemporaneity” with 6 Italian photographers.
Unfortunately, due to the pandemic period, all projects were interrupted, but last year we made a great comeback with the photographic exhibition called “Twelve Years of Lights and Racing in the Lion City” (2022), which was held at both The Arts House and Embassy of Italy in Singapore. The photographic project was supported and promoted by Embassy, Italy-ASEAN Association, EuroCham, and the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore and it was selected by STB to be part of the official programme of GPSS 2022 (F1 Grand Prix).
