Bric-à-Brac – La Gallaria Nazionale
15th July 2018 to 14th October 2018
The ‘Galleria Nazionale’ is hosting the exhibition BRIC-à-brac- The Jumble of Growth - curated by Gerardo Mosquera and Huang Du. The exhibition embraces around forty works of art designed by 26 artists and two curators from the Antipodes – Cuba and China with different cultural and geographical contexts, sharing a common bet on the possibilities of reading the present. The title of the exhibition, multilingual and tripartite, analyzes and translates the contradictory context in which we live. Playing with the French expression bric-à-brac, with heterogeneous and disordered small and decorative elements, the project focuses on the chaotic and conflictual growth of countries with emerging economies. In particular the BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
