On 28 March, the Italian Cultural Institute in Valletta inaugurates the Maltese stage of ‘Eyes on Tomorrow. Giovane Fotografia Italiana nel Mondo‘.
This large-scale exhibition, curated by Ilaria Campioli e Daniele De Luigi, is an original project of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and of the Municipality of Reggio Emilia and is meant to discover and support some of the most promising young talents of Italian photography.
The first stages were inaugurated on the occasion of the 2021 Contemporary Art Day, the event promoted by AMACI (Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums), and thanks to the contribution and support of the Italian Cultural Institutes the exhibitions are on display in eleven different cities: Addis Ababa, Algiers, Barcelona, Mexico City, Dublin, Valletta, Melbourne, Munich, Montevideo, Moscow and New Delhi.
Through an innovative exhibition display, based on the use of modular wooden structures personally interpreted by each artist, Giovane Fotografia Italiana proposes a format for a series of photographic installations, each revolving around a main theme addressed by three artists (Heritage, Identity, Power, Roots, Stories, Nomadic Life, Secrets, Youth, Dreams, Enlightenment, Horizons, Daily Life, Correspondences, Perspectives).
“Horizons” is the theme presented in Valletta:
Looking far away, at the limits of what is visible, is a spontaneous act, and yet we often have a hard time leaving our comfort zone in order to decode the reality that surrounds us. Giulia Agostini, Lorenza Demata and Francesca Pili invite us to discover new horizons in daily life by reinterpreting urban, natural and human landscapes through alienating alterations, dreamlike contrasts and poetic combinations.
Speakers at the opening include Serena Alessi, director of the Italian Cultural Institute Valletta, Daniele De Luigi, curator of Giovane Fotografia Italiana – Premio Luigi Ghirri and photographers Lorenza Demata and Joseph P. Smith.
