Exhibition 'Journey to Paradise'

From 5th  to 10th October, you are welcome to visit the exhibition 'Journey to Paradise', a group show bringing together Italian, Kenyan, Somali and Swedish artists who took part in the ArtXchange project, a cultural exchange initiative between young people working in the creative industry in Africa and Europe.


The exhibition consists of installations, photos, texts, poems and videos that have been co-created during three art residencies held in Kenya and Italy over the past two years.


One of the main concepts behind the works presented is Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto's 'Third Paradise', a global project in which nature and man would live in harmony.


The exhibition, curated by Xavier Verhoest, will also feature works by Italian artists Giorgio Camedda, Beatrice Morino, Andrea Drago, Sara Caccinelli and Martina Carniglia.
