A dialogue between contemporary art and the Apulian territory
The gallery expands beyond the Milanese walls to inhabit the Apulian territory. Starting from August to November 2022 an array of events of contemporary art has been animating the vibrant region.
Nucré is a series of reflections on the Apulian territory’s sites, landscapes, and cultural and anthropological heritage through the gaze of contemporary artists and dialogue with history and collective memory.
The title of the exhibition, Nucré, is a compound word of the dialect terms "nu" + "cré" which represents a recurring vernacular local saying which it is generally indicates "someday", allusion and suggestion used to convey hope, promise, destiny.
Castello Ducale – Pinacoteca Emilio Notte in Ceglie Messapica (BR) hosted “Frammento e Ornamento”, curated by Roberto Lacarbonara, one of the two exhibitions promoted by the array. The second event, "Dove la terra incontra il cielo", curated by Giulia Bortoluzzi was held in Trullo Rubina in Contada Menzella, Ceglie Messapica (BR).
Purple is a site specific installation by Irish arist Bea McMahon hosted in Masseria Torre Coccaro olive grove. The project is the result of the collaboration between the gallery and Rossana Muolo. Curatorial texts by Alessandra Troncone.
