Question Time - E' tempo di domande
The appointments of the OELLE Mediterraneo Antico Foundation are back.
We are waiting for you on Sunday October 13rd, starting at 11.30 am, to inaugurate with us and the artists on show the new project "Question Time - It's time for questions", on the occasion of the 15th Contemporary Art Day promoted by AMACI.
Artists have always expressed and investigated reality in all its dimensions in search of a meaning, thus fulfilling a political act. Placing oneself at the service of the public and of the citizens, they raise doubts, establish ties and connections, advance ideas and reflections. Today's culture, characterized by continuous references, contaminations and crowded with stereotypes, risks moving away from the true essence of things and from the planning of a better today and tomorrow. Contemporary languages - such as photography and video - capable of capturing the essence of the society that surrounds us, of penetrating situations and criticizing them, must be vehicles for the representation of human needs, the author of the work becomes, therefore , the one who looks, the one who has the duty to sense a beginning, see a development and foresee the end of the narrative. The artist suggests a path but the observers have the task of becoming interpreters of possible resolutions, and to return to take care of the public thing as opposed to the individualism of our times.
Artists on show:
Carmen Cardillo - Calamite
Francesco Di Giovanni - I invade, You invade
Egidio Liggera - Plato's cave
Emanuela Minaldi - Memoriae loci
Ivan Terranova - EUtopia
