Almost 40 works, some of which come from the collection of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, are presented at CerModern, as part of an international traveling exhibition that will stop in five other countries along the old Route Silk. The exhibit will also arrive in Xi’an, China, where it will end its journey.
The exhibition, entitled “The Silk Road: Contemporary Art and Italian Artists”, also highlights the contribution of new proposals which are carried, as in the past, from one continent to another and to across Asia.
“Particular attention”, said the curator, Angela Tecce, “was devoted to highlighting both the value of well-known artists and the proposals of young artists, to offer the public a panorama that would take into account the complexity and the diversity of newer and older trends.
The exhibition offers a brief overview of contemporary Italian art from the end of the 1960s to the present day and aims to strengthen its extraordinary vitality and, at the same time, to tell about its ability to interact with distant realities and worlds, to become a natural tool for dialogue.
