Turin | Project Room | 19 October 2023 – 4 February 2024
We are pleased to announce the opening of the exhibition "Nuova Generazione. Contemporary Looks at the Alinari Archives," a project by CAMERA and Fondazione Alinari per la Fotografia, curated by Giangavino Pazzola and Monica Poggi, which will be held at CAMERA's Project Room in Turin, from October 19, 2023 to February 4, 2024.
The project aimed at increasing the public photographic heritage by commissioning unpublished projects to four young artists and it's one of the winners of the tender "Strategia Fotografia 2022" promoted by the General Directorate for Contemporary Creativity of the Italian Ministry of Culture.
Matteo de Mayda, Leonardo Magrelli, Giovanna Petrocchi and Silvia Rosi created projects that, starting from the Alinari collections, investigate the theme of archives as fundamental repositories of stories to be interrogated and expanded.
By comparing historical and contemporary images, the exhibition reflects on the contemporary function of collections and on the different artistic practices that are developing today from the archives, whether public or private.
The works created by the four artists will become part of the Fondazione Alinari collection.
The initiative is accompanied by a catalog containing, in addition to essays by the project curators, reproductions of all the works on display.
The exhibition, after Turin, will also be exhibited in Florence in spring 2024.
