Exclusively in the Baroque capital, the fifth station of the national exhibition project:
'Aliens. The alienating shapes of Contemporary Art' - from the 20th of July to the 20th of August.
On the 20th of July, E-lite Studiogallery - an established exhibition space in Lecce and a hub for Contemporary art - will host: 'Aliens. The alienating shapes of Contemporary art'. This is a national itinerant exhibition conceived by Sergio Curtacci, director of the Milanese Contemporary Art magazine 'Frattura Scomposta'. The exhibition has already been on show during the first five months of 2013 travelling between Lombardia and Emilia Romagna.
The concept of the project prompts artists to express - through their individual medium, spirit and creativity - themes relating to the human alienation. The exhibition saw its first collective launch at the Spazio Vega in Marghera (VE) in 2007, in parallel with the 52nd Venezia Biennale; earlier this year, the show travelled to Como, Bologna and Gorgonzola (MI), engaging some fifty-nine Italian artists. Nineteen of the artists involved were also exhibiting at the Biennale for Visual Arts in Venice, three were mentioned by the Corriere della Sera as best artists of 2012, and one exhibits his works in the permanent collection of the world renowned Mart museum in Rovereto.
The style proposed by E-lite Studiogallery for this fifth stage of the project is rather remarkable and innovative. The forty artists invited to participate will work and interact with two exhibition spaces: the distinctive open space of E-lite Studiogallery and the XVI Century Palazzo Vernazza Castromediano, one of the oldest and most imposing architectural gems of the city.
It will be a true 'alien' invasion. 120 works on display: painting, sculpture, installations and photography by the most promising artists of the Italian art scene. 4 performances in the program, to engage locals, tourists, art lovers and more, a 'state of the art' Contemporary art summer in Lecce!!'
Forty talents with diverse backgrounds, age, training, provenance and technique, yet with a single purpose: being a lens through which the rays of Contemporary art, life and society converge, with the aspiration of building an image that contributes to reshaping and reassembling social welfare. Contemporary art is a means to overcome the uneasy conditions of contemporary life that sees us acting as 'aliens' on the earth, and as frightened foreign visitors to the planet to which we belong.
Opening on Saturday 20th of July at 8pm, at Palazzo Vernazza with the presentation of the project and a performance by Orode' Deoro, to then continue at the E-lite Studiogallery with the performance by Ilaria Margutti and an 'alien' reception, offered by Leone de Castris, Vitivinicoltori since 1665.
