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.
The second Edition of NUCRÉ | Contemporary Art Festival, held in the municipality of Ceglie Messapica (Brindisi), will begin on July 22, 2023.
The project, with the support of the Municipality of Ceglie Messapica and the Emilio Notte Art Gallery, and the sponsorship of the Puglia Region and the F. Ribezzo Archaeological Museum, Brindisi, will be taking place in two locations this year: the Castello Ducale - involving the Sala dei Sindaci and the Scuderie, reopened to the public for the first time in over forty years - will host the group exhibition The Court Ballet, curated by Roberto Lacarbonara, while Trullo Rubina, in the Menzella district, will host the group exhibition Leggere Gravità, curated by Arechi Invernizzi and dedicated to Rubina Ciracì
