MANIFESTA12
June 16,2018 – November 04,2018
Palermo

Manifesta is the European Nomadic Biennial, held in a different host city every two years. It is a major international art event, attracting visitors from all over the world. 
The City of Palermo was important for Manifesta’s selection board for its representation of two important themes that identify contemporary Europe: migration and climate change and how these issues impact our cities. The multi-layered and deeply condensed history of Palermo – being occupied by almost every European civilization and having long-term connections with Northern Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean over the last 2000 years – has left its traces throughout this multi-cultural society at the heart of the Mediterranean area.

Throughout Palermo and other communities in Sicily, amazing venues have generously opened their doors to host the Manifesta 12 Collateral Events. Locations from stupendous Baroque palaces to Norman architectural masterpieces and artisanal workshops, many of which have never received the public, can now be seen and experienced through the lens of local, national, and international cultural organisers. Entire squares, fountains, quarters, and streets await discovery with numerous workshops, performances, exhibitions, and audio-visual installations.

Some of the Upcoming Collateral Events:

Per Barclay, Cavallerizza Palazzo Mazzarino
June 15 – November 04
Per Barclay’s oil chamber contains the image of “the other self.” Here, the interweaving of the rigorous architectural geometry of the Cavallerizza and its reflection in the black liquid formally and conceptually play with the symbology of the double, in both philosophical and optical terms. The installation is a reflection on the present time and technically translates into a complex work centered on the dialogue between architecture and space, in line with the stylistic language of Per Barclay. Oil room installation, from 16 June to 25 July.
Photographic exhibition, from 8 September to 4 November. Closed the month of August. Installation visitable till the 25th of July.

Bianco Valente. Terra di me

June 22 – September 30
Terra di me, supported by the Sicily Foundation and organized by Sicily Art and Culture and Civita Sicilia in cooperation with CRESM is based on Bianco-Valente’s perception about the border between themselves and others, based on interactions with some maps at the museum of Villa Zito. The exhibition project stems from a series of meetings between the artists and migrants in Palermo. As a result, they created a reciprocal dialogue and shared reflections about collective culture and narration.

X=Danisinni

September 1 – 16
X=Danisinni is the collective editorial and artistic lab conceived by XRIVISTA for the Danisinni district: five young artists immerse themselves in the history of the neighbourhood, both past and present, in order to create five public art projects. The artistic dialogue with the district is the subject of the new XRIVISTA issue created during the residency. The Danisinni atelier is a place of exchange, always open to neighborhood residents and visitors for the duration of the project.
