The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation presents, from 21 September to 10 November, at Palazzo R and Rebaudengo, the exhibition "From Guarene to Etna 2019, Boiling Projects", curated by Filippo Maggia.
Exactly twenty years after the first exhibition held in Taormina in December 1999 and the subsequent editions held (the last, GE / 14 Other from images, in 2014), the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation of Turin celebrates this long cycle of exhibitions that have marked significantly four decades of photographic research in Italy with a new exhibition with the emblematic title "From Guarene to Etna 2019, Boiling Projects".
Twenty -five artists are the protagonists of the new appointment that will take place in Guarene d'Alba in the historic headquarters of the Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation starting from 21 September. Twenty-five artists including Luca Campigotto, Paola De Pietri, Alessandra Spranzi, Francesco Jodice, Antonio Biasiucci, Pino Musi, Carmelo Nicosia, Daniele De Lonti, Luca Andreoni, Tancredi Mangano and Antonio Fortugno, photographers who in 1999 were considered "emerging" , and which today appear as references for the younger generations.
Since then, photography in Italy has traveled many paths, even very different ones, broadening the horizons and above all the meaning that we would like to give to the image today.
Specifying once again its inherent fragmentation, the photographic research presents itself as a container of ideas and projects that, fermenting, finally find solutions sometimes in line with the historical moment in which we live, at other times proposing themselves as escape routes or, again, a mirror of existential conditions, as reflected in the works of younger authors such as Claudio Gobbi, Gianni Troilo, the duo formed by Tommaso Fiscaletti and Nic Grober, Gianni Ferrero Merlino, Francesco Cardarelli, Nicolò Degiorgis, Luca Pozzi, up to Renato Leotta, Marco Tagliafico, Paola Pasquaretta, Tiziano Mainieri, Elisa Crostella, Giuliano Severini and Francesco Di Giovanni.
"From Guarene to Etna 2019" was created in collaboration with the OELLE Mediterraneo Antico Foundation of Catania which, in the spring of 2020, will re-propose the exhibition in Sicily.
