Pasqua Wines to Support Metamorphosis: Innovation In Eco Photography & Film at Saatchi Gallery in London

Pasqua Wines, leading winery and ambassador for Amarone della Valpolicella and Veneto wines around the world, has today announced its support of “Metamorphosis: Innovation in Eco Photography & Film”, a group show of eco and sustainable artists at London’s iconic Saatchi Gallery, opening 26th May to 28th July, 2024. The exhibition will be Pasqua’s first international collaboration, elevating the brand’s engagement with the arts to an international stage, following six years’ patronage of the Italian arts, which has included commissions and collaborations, such as the dream-like audio visual experience, Luna Somnium, at fuse*, and SUPERFLUO by NONE Collective during ArtVerona in 2023. 

Metamorphosis will showcase four artists whose work highlights how experimentation, process innovation and relentlessly pushing boundaries can unlock eco-consciousness and impact. The four multi-media artists, Almudena Romero, Hannah Fletcher, Edd Carr and Scott Hunter, were selected on the strength of their innovative and unconventional approaches and early critical acclaim as emerging artists.   

Riccardo Pasqua, CEO, said: “As we approach our centennial year, we are delighted to be supporting Saatchi Gallery to instigate this show, underscoring our cross-generational commitment to innovation, creativity and unconventional approaches. Each of the artists demonstrates what we have always believed to be true – that through experimentation and pushing boundaries we can unlock progress”. 

“This international collaboration builds on Pasqua’s strong heritage of arts patronage, its commitment to making art accessible to the public and its unique belief that innovation is born from a profound, appreciative knowledge of history and tradition. We believe that creativity needs to be cultivated with love and care, just like the land. Pasqua has spent almost a century innovating the future of wine production – and we couldn’t be more delighted with this pairing.”

Since 1985, Saatchi Gallery has provided an innovative platform for contemporary art. Exhibitions have presented works by largely unseen young artists, or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK. This approach has made the Gallery one of the most recognised names in contemporary art.

Pasqua’s support of the show – which is announced as family winery, Pasqua, heads into its centenary year – reflects the inherent creativity and innovation of the brand’s DNA and values, which was recognised on internationally after the company won the coveted “Innovator of the Year” Award by Wine Enthusiast Magazine, for unlocking a series of remarkable evolutions for the wine industry. The coveted award recognized Pasqua’s longstanding investment in research and innovation, which led the winery to be dubbed “laboratory of research”, by Wine Enthusiast Magazine and is the result of three generations of stewardship by the Pasqua family.
