Already inaugurated in Florence, Minsk and St. Petersburg, the exhibition ‘ItaliAE. Dagli Alinari ai maestri della fotografia contemporanea‘ (From Alinari to the masters of contemporary photography) will be in Tashkent, thanks to the support of the Embassy of Italy and the Academy of Arts of Uzbekistan. The exhibition will be open at the National Institute of Arts and Design Kamoliddin Bekzod, from 15 October until 12 November 2021.

Divided into three different sections (Landscapes, Works, Faces), the exhibition is intended as a visual portrait of a multifaceted Italy, and an anthology of the best works of historical and contemporary photography. The images from the Alinari Archive are thus in dialogue with the works of the most important Italian masters of the twentieth century (including Gabriele Basilico, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Mario Cresci, Gabriele Croppi, Franco Fontana, Luigi Ghirri, Mario Giacomelli, Emiliano Mancuso, Fosco Maraini, Paolo Pellegrin and Ferdinando Scianna). A selection, curated by Rita Scartoni and Luca Criscenti, which manages to offer an ideal geographical, historical and artistic journey through a constantly evolving Italy, while at the same time demonstrating the great vitality of its photographic tradition.

After the Uzbek opening, from 3 December, ‘ItaliAE’ will make stop in Ukraine, thanks to the Italian Cultural Institute of Kiev at the National Academy of Arts of Ukraine in Kiev, in collaboration with Stedley Art Foundation.
