Unexpected, little known, but of unquestionable iconic power and enormous stage presence: these are the landmarks of contemporary art in Italy, the stars of a new documentary series produced by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, in collaboration with Sky Arte and TIWI as executive producers.
Led by critic and journalist Nicolas Ballario, ‘Italia Contemporanea’ (Contemporary Italy) is a new way of discovering contemporary art in Italy, covering the most representative works, the most famous museums as well as the most secretive or elusive spaces – from redeveloped former factories to open-air museums. A thematic journey throughout Italy, giving a voice, in the 4 episodes, to artists, curators and art historians, among the most renowned on the current art scene.
To highlight the peculiarity of the relationship linking certain spaces to certain works, these projections take place at the border between the exhibition space of the Institute and the public space of the city, that is to say in a point where the city itself seems to get inside the building through the small plaza in front of the Institute.
In loop, with English subtitles.
