The series of talks entitled Follow the Waves… draws our attention to important subjects, some of which have become everyday topics, while other seem to be forgotten.
The series is set up as an opportunity for dialogue and reflection that led up to MagiC Carpets Landed Exhibition in Kaunas, on the occasion of “Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022”.
The fifth event in the Follow the Waves series is dedicated to two important issues, different while also being interconnected: THE ECOSYSTEM BETWEEN ART AND GLOBALIZATION.
During last years the pandemic of Covid 19 has overwhelmed and forced us to reflect on our lives from a double perspective: on the one hand the intimate, personal one, strictly connected to the individual, on the other on those involving the community and, in particular, the ecosystem and the impact of our choices on the environment. On the occasion of the next talk, we will discuss about how the world is developing, but heading in a direction that is anything but positive.
How can art play a role in the fight against climate change? How the artists responded to this period that has turned our lives upside down? How should we deal with the phenomenon of globalization by limiting the impact on the ecosystem, in a world where global exchanges are essential?
As for the other talks, there will be numerous guests including artists, curators and professors with whom we will discuss to try to answer these and other questions.
- Neringa Kulik – Director of Kaunas Biennial
- Riccardo Venturi – Art Critic, Professor
- Melissa Rodrigues – Artist, Performer, Member of RAMPA Cultural Association, InterStruct Collective and Porto Anti-Racist Nucleus
- Moderator: Benedetta Carpi De Resmini
The talk will be streamed Wednesday, 19 January 5:30pm (CET) [6:30 pm LT] on the Latitudo Art Projects, the Accademia di Belle Arti di Roma, Magic Carpets and Kaunas Biennial Facebook event page and the website of Latitudo Art Projects/ MagiC Carpets.
