Cagliari meets Angela Serino
Dates: August 6-7, 2014
“Rewriting the City on a Cultural Basis.”
Cagliari is one of the Italian cities shortlisted to become the European Capital of Culture in 2019.
Inspired by the late Sardinian artist Maria Lai, Cagliari has started a process of renewal and cultural revitalisation focused on the idea of ‘fabric’ and the act of weaving. Maria Lai’s threads crossing the “Incandescent World” become the metaphor for a city that weaves new scenarios. Her threads do not draw closed shapes. They are unpredictable, like a city that is planning but also open to the world.
Cagliari’s programme is characterised by the theme of passage: passage from immaterial culture to a culture of doing, from ancient to contemporary art, from Mediterranean to Continental Europe, from one identity to many, from isolation to contamination and integration.
As part of this process, Cagliari has invited Angel Serino to introduce her practice and her recent projects in “Futuro Prossimo”, a series of meetings with international cultural producers for Cagliari 2019.
