“What emerges from this selection of video narratives is the urgent need for a human focus in the exploration of processes affecting identity, belonging, the awareness of differences and the acknowledgement of otherness.”
At the Fringes of Identity, Contemporary Video Art from the Han Nefkens Foundation is an exhibition of video art curated by Giacomo Zaza. There will be two opportunities to see the exhibition in Italy: from 20th June to 8th September 2019 at MUST (Museo Storicodella Città di Lecce), opening on 20th June at 7.30pm, and from 28th September to 24th November 2019 at MAC (Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Lissone), opening on 29th September at 6pm.
The works on show confront the...theme of intercultural identity. The social, ethnic and gender issuesthat they address invite a form of reflection centred on the human aspect of the processes transforming the contemporary world. Fifteen artists from diverse parts of the world (Europe, the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Middle East) comment on sociological and cultural themes from different points of view, in a diverse range of narrative idioms.
The videos have been selected from the collection of the Han Nefkens Foundation in Barcelona and from the finalist artists from the Premio de Producción de Vídeo Arte Fundación Han Nefkens – CAC Quito 2018.
The exhibition project was developed for the MAC in Lissone and will be presented to the public for the first time at the MUST in Lecce thanks to the support of UBI Banca and with the patronage of the City of Lecce's Assessorato alla Cultura.
Published by Silvana Editoriale, a bilingual catalogue (Italian and English) will accompany the exhibition and will be available in Italy and internationally at the end of September 2019.
