Art Meets Architecture is delighted to present “ESSENCE” a project by Italian artist Stefano Panichi curated by Anna Dusi.

"The artist always has the vision to create his own interpretation of human nature.
We humans share more than 50 percent of our DNA with plants, animals, minerals, sun, stars and the universe, this is the Essence. Believing the human being not as a master entirely, but as part of the whole, to the harmony of the transformation continues, the new, the current." - Anna Dusi

During the opening April 11, there was a stunning performance by Los Angeles-based international performance artist, Elizabeth Yochim, alongside Los Angeles based, classically trained, sopranos Kate McCallum & Jahna Perricone and poet, Don Norman. In concert with the building itself, they created an immersive avant-garde performance, engaging the essence of Stefano Panichi’s art through sound and movement.
