ART AND HEALTH:
A NEW VISION OF THE WORLD
- THE PRIZE
The Prix Pujade- Lauraine • Carta is a major initiative to support contemporary artistic creation, deployed between France and Italy. Its calling is to create a dialogue between the worlds of art and health.
The Prix Pujade-Lauraine • Carta Bianca finds its source at the crossroads of art, science and the sensitive dimension of the human being, and wishes to build a bridge between the world of artists and the world of patients. It is founded on the strong key values inherent to the health professions (sharing, self-giving, commitment, solidarity, humanity). It was born from the conviction that the meeting of the emotional and sensitive universes of artists and those of people reconstruction after the trauma of illness and treatment is a mutual source of inspiration and vitality. By supporting artistic creation and this sharing between artists and patients, the Prix Pujade-Lauraine • Carta Bianca thus encourages new explorations of “lands” of humanity that resonate with the aspiration of rebirth of people who have experienced a life upheaval.
- ART AND HEALTH: A NEW VISION OF THE WORLD
The Prix Pujade-Lauraine • Carta Bianca is established at the crossroads of art, science and the sensitive dimension of the human being, the latter being the essence of the health world.
The sciences and the arts are tools that complement each other to reveal previously unknown dimensions of our reality. They have similar capacities to create and invent new intellectual and emotional “lands” in a constantly changing societal environment. If science explores reality with innovative knowledge and new technologies, art – which often feeds on science – explores the world with multiple sensory languages and has the capacity to anticipate the understanding of the evolution of time.
