'Nuova Generazione. Contemporary Looks at the Alinari Archives’: on view at the Project Room of CAMERA - Centro Italiano per la Fotografia, from October 19, 2023
Fondazione Alinari per la Fotografia and CAMERA - Centro Italiano per la Fotografia won the "Strategia Fotografia 2022" tender, promoted by the Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture with the project 'Nuova Generazione. Sguardi contemporanei sugli Archivi Alinari’', curated by Giangavino Pazzola and Monica Poggi.
Thanks to this important recognition, our archive will communicate with the present, through the involvement of four young artists (Matteo de Mayda, Leonardo Magrelli, Giovanna Petrocchi e Silvia Rosi), selected from among the authors who, over the years, have taken part in the "Futures Photography" project, in which CAMERA represents Italy.
By comparing historical and contemporary images, the exhibition will analyze the modern role of collections and artistic practices that are developing today from the archives, both public and private ones.
The artists’ works will be exhibited at two venues, in Turin and in Florence, where they will dialogue with historical photographs and objects from the Alinari archive, highlighting the relationship between past, present and future.
At the end of both exhibitions, the works will become part of the Alinari collection.
