“Everything Is Going to Be Alright”: Welcome to the Humanitas University Campus.
To welcome students from all over the world to the Humanitas University Campus there is now the inscription Everything Is Going to Be Alright, the famous work created by the British artist Martin Creed. This work was commissioned by the University with the support of the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi.
The message in Martin Creed’s work
The neon sign, more than fourteen meters long, inside the Campus wants to be an provocation not to worry, an invitation to positivity and optimism, a wish for hope in a context where the uniqueness and centrality of each person is prevalent, be it student, researcher, patient, etc..
The collaboration of the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi
The Fondazione Nicola Trussardi is a non-profit institution founded in 1996 for the dissemination of contemporary art through the innovative works of international artists, designed to enter into daily life in symbolic and cultural places. Over the years, in fact, the Foundation has established collaborations with many prestigious national and international institutions.
As in 2006, when the sign “Everything Is Going to Be Alright” was installed on the facade of the Palazzo dell’Arengario in Piazza Duomo in Milan, the intrinsic meaning of the work is to bring art into people’s lives in an unexpected way, creating opportunities for reflection to rethink the past and find better approaches to the present.
“We responded enthusiastically to the invitation of Humanitas – says Beatrice Trussardi, president of the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi – precisely because we have made this principle our philosophy and we know how much contemporary art can help us to read our time.
Why Martin Creed
The artist and musician Martin Creed (born in 1968) lives and works in London. He is the winner of the prestigious Turner Prize of the Tate Britain in London in 2001.
His sculptures and installations, exhibited and commissioned by the most important international institutions, are real invitations to change our perception of reality.
“Learn to look at things from a different point of view and always get the best out of it”: this is the Foundation’s wish for all the students who will live on the Humanitas University Campus, for every day of their professional and personal journey.
