After the success of the exhibition in Kiev, ‘La Via della Seta. Arte e artisti contemporanei dall’Italia’ (The Silk Road: Art and Contemporary Artists from Italy) arrives in Uzbekistan. From 15 December to 5 January 2022 the exhibition will be open to visitors at the NBU Gallery in Tashkent.
The Silk Road offers a concise panorama of contemporary Italian art from the late 1960s to the present day and is the first exhibition of its kind in the recent history of cultural relations between Italy and Uzbekistan. Its itinerary could not but include this important Central Asian country, which has always been a crossroads of civilizations since ancient times. – Agostino Pinna, Italian Ambassador in Tashkent.
Curated by Angela Tecce, the exhibition offers a concise but rich showcase of the quality, complexity and diversity of trends in Italian contemporary art from the late 1960s to the present day.
At the end of the Uzbek stage, the journey will then continue towards the East, concluding in China in 2022, which is the Italy-China Year of Culture and Tourism.
Organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Istituto Garuzzo per le Arti Visive, the exhibition is travelling the world thanks to the Embassies and Italian Cultural Institutes.
