Fotografia in Collezione: una nuova sfida
Gibellina is a planned city. But how long does it take to establish a planned city? Even today, the artists that animate the Images Gibellina festival try to respond to this appeal. The festival is made of ephemeral works; in order to keep its history in a physical location, this year we inaugurate the new “photography section” of the Permanent Collection of the Orestiadi Foundation, one of the most important collections in Southern Italy. Many of the artists who have created installations presented at the open air festival in recent years have donated one of their works to leave a trace of their passage through the city, and we believe many will continue to do so in the future. Their building blocks will be added, one after the other, to bolster the memory and strengthen the walls of this city, which continues to hatch and grow every day thanks to art, culture and new vitality.
In collaboration with Fondazione Orestiadi
