TOGLI IL FERMO / LET IT GO – American Academy in Rome
The American Academy in Rome presents the group exhibition Togli il fermo / Let It Go, curated by Nari Ward, FAAR’13 and comitato scientifico di S.A.C.S – Sportello per l’Arte Contemporanea della Sicilia.
It presents new work by seven young Sicilian artists: Giuseppe Buzzotta, Gabriella Ciancimino, Silvia Giambrone, Giuseppe Lana, Filippo Leonardi, Concetta Modica and/barbaragurrieri/group. The creation of the pieces followed a week-long workshop held by Nari Ward, a Visual Arts Fellow at the American Academy in Rome in 2013. The retreat promoted an international dialogue on the relationship between nature, culture and landscape and was hosted by the chef Antonello Colonna at the AntonelloColonna Vallefredda Resort.
The exhibition is produced by Riso, Museo d’Arte Contemporanea della Sicilia, Dipartimento dei Beni Culturali e dell’Identità siciliana, and conceived by a committee of the S.A.C.S.: Laura Barreca, Daniela Bigi, Valentina Bruschi, Lorenzo Bruni, Giovanni Iovane, Helga Marsala and Cristiana Perrella. The work of the seven artists will be placed in the permanent collection of the Riso Museum.
