‘A Plural identity” – a mosaic of works of international artists will be on display from December 5th to 11th, 2020 to underline the sense of community.
With this exhibition, Rossocinabro participates to the Giornata del Contemporaneo - the great event promoted by AMACI, the Association of Italian Contemporary Art Museums, which for sixteen years has involved museums, foundations, public and private institutions, galleries, studios and art spaces to tell the vitality of contemporary art in our country.
Also for this edition, it is confirmed the involvement of the foreign network of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation - which includes Embassies, Consulates and Italian Cultural Institutes - which will give life from Saturday 5 to Friday 11 December 2020 to a week of promotion of Italian contemporary art abroad.
In 2020, the Giornata del Contemporaneo takes on a necessarily different look from the traditional one. In this complex year, deeply affected by the emergency pandemic, the sixteenth edition of the event puts the contemporary community at the centre - starting with the AMACI Museums - and rethinks itself starting from the concept of community, which has always been at the basis of the event and today - in the Covid era - back forcefully in the limelight.
the 2020 Contemporary Day is designed to respond to the exceptional nature of the moment we are experiencing, which so strongly influences not only the planning and conduct of cultural activities but also the perception that each of us has of the meaning of art and culture today. This year AMACI was decided to adopt a hybrid format, with online and offline proposals: the changed context has required a suspension of the traditional format of the event and an updated edition with variations that guarantee its performance on a double track, encouraging all to contribute on both levels, by joining the great communication campaign that will be launched on 5 December with the hashtag #giornatadelcontemporaneo.
Also, to tell the infinite facets of the contemporary, the very identity of the event is composed to a digital mosaic of the works of all artists, as proposed from as 23 AMACI museums, instead of using the traditional guide image created by one artist.
We are excited to be continuing this annual tradition from 2008.
