URBAN TALES
Art Exhibition in Lecce
curated by Dores Sacquegna
from 3 to 17 December 2021

Preview: Culture-transition-identity
On this trilogy of words we want to create an exhibition and narrative project of one's own city, as an urban center in motion, as a place of transition, migration and or of stability of our cultural identities. Through the narration of the city - with street photography, storytelling, architectural projects of a vertical city of the future, pop culture or other - the exhibition takes into consideration the urban tales or utopias of the 21st century, identified the city as an urban jungle , as a mirror and alter ego of our civilization. The cities and or places where we live are made of contrasts and strong similarities, and each differs in lifestyle, cultural identity, communication of beauty, architecture, history, art and other urban curiosities.
Urban Tales is an exhibition experiment of narration through contemporary art and architecture, to build a hypothetical map of the city of the future, through projects, photographic explorations and urban legends.

The city as a hub - The project offers the inputs to work on words such as living, public space, urban mobility, environment and climate, center and periphery, urban green life, sustainable architecture, art and environment etc. For each chosen district, the artists will have to add to their works-texts, as a trace of their passage, through a geolocation map (such as google maps) that allows to testify their presence on the narrated places.

Eligibility and type of works - The exhibition is open to worldwide artists and any media (painting, photo, installation, video, mixed media and more).

Exhibition and Sharing - Through the method of sharing photos, all the works produced will be identifiable on the app INSTAGRAM through the HASHTAG dedicated to the project. The original works will be exhibited in the Renaissance venue of Palmieri Foundation in the old city of Lecce, Italy.

Catalog  and Press Kit - Selected works will be included in the exhibition catalog with critical texts by the curator. Each artist will receive 5-10 printed catalogs and report kit press.

Art Curator - Dores Sacquegna is a curator and art director of contemporary art. Since 1994 to date, she has worked and reviewed works by recognized artists such as Christo and Jeanne Claude, Louise Bourgeois, Hermann Nitsch, Matthew Barney among others. She has curated exhibitions in Italy and abroad, collaborating with art galleries, museums, foundation, corporates and collectors.

Notes: Notes: In addition to the exhibition, we are also organizing an art residency in Lecce, with a site-specific project for the city from November 26th to December 5th if you are interested, contact us!
