Book Launch – Translatio by Emily Jacir at the American Academy in Rome


In conjunction with the exhibition Cinque Mostre 2016 – Across the Board: Parts of a Whole, which remains on view through 3 April, the American Academy in Rome presents the second of two appointments exploring the themes engaged by the exhibition. TRANSLATIO is a collaborative publication proceeding from artist Emily Jacir’s Via Crucis, a permanent installation commissioned by ARTache at the church of San Raffaele in Milan. Uniting the artist with two scholars of the medieval Mediterranea, John Lansdowne and Christopher MacEvitt, this book illustrates the movement of objects, images, people, and place between Palestine and Italy.

Translatio has been published by NERO

Note: on March 17 the exhibition will be open exceptionally from 5pm to 8pm.
