Exhibition - Roma: A Portrait, Palazzo delle Esposizioni
ROMA, A PORTRAIT. FESTIVAL OF FOREIGN CULTURE ACADEMIES AND INSTITUTES
May 10 - July 30, 2023. Palazzo delle Esposizioni, Via Nazionale, 194, 00184 Roma.
Curated by Cecilia Canziani with Francesca Campana and Giulia Gaibisso
Roma, a portrait is the first edition of a project that will be turning the Palazzo delle Esposizioni on an annual basis into a primary observatory for exploring the visions and the research of those foreign scholars and artists who spend a period of residency in Rome every year as guests of the Academies and Cultural Institutes that have been a part of city’s life since the 17th century.
The depiction of the landscape of Rome from the earliest “views” is the exhibition’s basic premise and starting point, unfolding thereafter in a range of different media and forms. The exhibition continues with encounters, performances and screenings hosted at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni and with an invitation to take part in the exhibitions and open studios in the academies and institutes that are, today, venues for encounter and cross-contamination among careers, identities, styles, disciplines and communities that recount the complexity of our present era.
