URBAN JUNGLE: Art Residency and Exhibition





URBAN JUNGLE Exhibition and Art Residency

2021 November 26th to December 5th


Primo Piano LivinGallery is pleased to announce the new contemporary art project titled: “URBAN UNGLE" curated by Dores Sacquegna. The jungle as a mirror and alter ego of the city. A relationship made up of contrasts and strong similarities, which leads to various interpretations of style between urban life and cultural identities. All cities have a voice: beauty, architecture, history, art and other urban curiosities. The project aims to create a collaborative storytelling experiment between local inhabitants and foreign artists residents, to build a hypothetical map of the city, through storytelling, photographic explorations to drawn and shared ideas. An urban safari centered in the old city and in the suburb, in order to obtain important food for thought and materials which will be exhibited in the final exhibition.
