reciproco/RECIPROCAL – AUSTRALIA/italy
April 11 - May 2Free
reciproco/RECIPROCAL brings together five contemporary Australian artists of Italian origin and five contemporary artists from Italy to create new works in iconic venues of Carlton. Multidisciplinary artists will explore the nuanced narratives that describe both the chronicles of century-old Italian migration to Australia and those that have signposted the millennial evolution of italianity.
Italo-Australian artists: Eugene Carchesio, Angela Cavalieri, Damiano Bertoli, Domenico de Clario, Wilma Tabacco, will be paired with Italian artists: Angelo Bellobono, Alessandro Cannistra`, Laura Cionci, Rocco Dubbini, who have travelled to Melbourne, and Luana Perilli.
Each pair will collaborate to create a new work in multiple locations across the Carlton heritage precinct including, Readings, Co.As.It, Brunetti’s Cafe, Melbourne General Cemetery and La Mama Theatre. The artistic outcomes include a multi-sited exhibition, essays, artist’s talks, performances, symposium and a digital archive of the process.
Curated by Domenico de Clario & Laura Cionci.
Produced by Lella Cariddi.
reciproco/RECIPROCAL will be officially launched by Virginia Trioli
