Photography is once again the protagonist at the Pescheria Visual Arts Center in Pesaro with a major exhibition project dedicated to Stefano Graziani (Bologna 1971), hosted in the Loggiato and in the church of the Suffragio from 17 December 2021 to 13 March 2022.Organized by the Pescheria Foundation, in collaboration with the Municipality of Pesaro, the exhibition entitled "Photographic exhibition" constitutes the third chapter of a cycle of dialogues for images curated by Alessandro Dandini de Sylva.
After "Qualsiasità" of 2017, generational confrontation between the master of contemporary photography Guido Guidi and his students (Ballardini, Fabbri, Frantini, Galvani, Neri, Nostra) and "The shapes of time" of 2019, a journey into the heart of man and of our planet through the images of Fabio Barile and Domingo Milella, the 2021 appointment is with the photographic research of Stefano Graziani, intended as a tool for cataloging, narration and reinterpretation, which for the occasion also involved the deposits of the Civic Museums of Pesaro.The collection presented in the exhibition includes works by the artist from different lines of research, some of the past years (architecture and museum collections), others more recent (mushrooms and athletes in training) and the connection is particularly interesting, sometimes subtle, other times more articulated and complex, which links the images together, in a continuous game of evocations and correspondences.
Stefano explains: "The title 'Photographic exhibition' does not want to generate any foreshadowing about the contents of the exhibition, other than the evidence that it is photographs. This new work intercepts some directions and ideas of the past by including them in a series that opens up perspectives for future projects. A sequence designed specifically for Pescheria di Pesaro and its space. Most of the photographs on display have never been shown or published, they do not have a particular theme that unites them, they have many and all of them are visible ".At the entrance to the Fish Market, a curtain made of white scaffolding fabric forms a diaphragm that follows a broken path dividing the space into a long gallery and an antechamber where the words "Stefano Graziani" stand out; from here you can access the two exhibition rooms.
