Following the success of the exhibition in Kiev, ‘La Via della Seta. Arte e artisti contemporanei dall’Italia‘ (The Silk Road: Contemporary Art and Artists from Italy) arrives in Turkey. From 18 September to 10 October, the exhibition will be open to visitors at the CerModern Arts Center in Ankara, one of the most prestigious exhibition venues in the country’s capital.
The official opening ceremony of the exhibition is scheduled for 23 September, at the end of a seminar – reserved for a limited number of specialists – on the economic opportunities for Italy and Turkey along the Silk Road. The Italian Ambassador to Ankara will open the proceedings, which will focus on the themes of connectivity, transport and energy. Representatives from Turkish institutions, academia and interested companies will speak.
From Ankara, the journey will then continue towards the East to end up in China in 2022, 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.
