After having excited public and criticism at the United Nations headquarters in Geneva, the Fabbrica del Vapore di Milano and Palazzo Trevisan degli Ulivi in Venice, Nobody Excluded, the photographic exhibition of the artist Christian Tasso, guest at Palazzo Merulana from 4 December 2021 to 16 January 2022.
On display a selection of the artist's photographs of medium and large format, made in film and developed manually in the dark room, investigate diversity with a look away from rhetoric and pietism. Christian Tasso's photographs present a journey to fifteen countries of the world, which is a journey of human relations and of very deep respect for each other - a respect that perhaps only art can express -, also documented by the book of the same name published by Contrast in 2020, with the critical text by Alessandra Mauro and a reflection on the diversity of the writer Giuseppe Pontiggia.
It is no coincidence that the exhibition at Palazzo Merulana was inaugurated on the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2021, established by the UN in 1981 and which has since taken place every year on 3 December. The strength of the social message, inherent in the choice of this date, becomes explosive thanks to the expressive capacity of Tasso's art, which literally overturns the point of view on the subject.
