Liquid Frontiers and Entangled Worlds. Two thousand years of visual and material culture between the Mediterranean and East Asia
The exhibition Trad u/I zioni d’Eurasiaexplores the concepts of cultural translation, transposition and interpretation through a selection of objects from West, Central and East Asia that raise questions about material and immaterial circulation, ways of transforming meaning and use in Asia and Europe across two thousand years of history.
Investigating the migration of ideas, forms, techniques and symbols in an open, inclusive dilogue, the exhibition aims to highlight the osmotic reciprocity between continents and seas, to create new narratives for visual and material culturethat are specific and relative rather than universalising and generic.
Far from wanting to be exhaustive, the exhibition presents a selection of objects that offer alternatives to the Euro-centric paradigm of artistic excellence, reasserting the critical role played by Central Asia in the global transmission of ideas and creation. The Mediterranean Sea was vital to this phenomenon of influence, a place understood as an intermediate space and creator of boundaries but also a phenomenal catalyst of exploration and contact: a liquid frontier where the continents converge and artistic expressions and cultural phenomena are constantly reinvented.
The exhibition is enhanced by the public program Evolving Soundscapes, curated by Chiara Lee and freddie Murphy. All details HERE
