It starts with a series of meetings dedicated to gender identity. The thoughts and actions shared in the meetings constituted the genesis of the project, which is now formalized in a singular exhibition itinerary. The preview will be anticipated by a meeting with Chiara Frugoni.
“Chiara with respect to Francesco. Chiara, the most faithful follower of Francesco, very brave, tenacious and very human, adored by her sisters”.
“The series of meetings Sui generis, developed from a dialogue practice undertaken with Chiara Camoni and Cecilia Canziani in summer 2018, is articulated in a project commissioned by Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea in collaboration with the Region of Tuscany in the desire to promote new ways of ‘making art. The production experience is thus no longer compressed in the exhibition format, but open to forms of greater scope, enriched by an open and evolving dialogue and by a reflection that has jealously demanded a long and articulated temporal cadence“. Valentina Gensini
“During the seminars we reasoned around the idea of gender as asymmetry, of work and thought as collective practices starting from the sharing of dedicated time and space. The space in which we worked is that of Le Murate, which was originally a cloistered convent, therefore a place of separation from the world, but also a place of relationship, common life and emancipation through reading and craftsmanship. In this sense the notion of domestic space, of inhabited and not abstract space, of space to be built, is at the basis of the seminars and the exhibition“. The curator, Cecilia Canziani
The exhibition will be open to the public from 6 June to 5 October 2019 | Tuesday – Saturday 2.30 pm – 7.30 pm Under the patronage of Regione Toscana.
With the contribution of Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio.
