Mappe

Maps. Geographies of contemporary

 

PALAZZO LITTA CULTURA
Maps. Geographies of contemporary
June 13 – 16, 2018 – Tickets available on presale
Opening hours of the exhibition Mappe. Sguardi sui confini:
Wednesday to Friday from 5.00 pm to midnight
Saturday from 11.00 am to midnight
Last entry 11.30 pm

Spanning four days of voyage across four regions, Palazzo Litta transforms into a geographical point for visual arts, photography, live music, film screenings, performances, concerts, DJ sets and talks.

Palazzo Litta Cultura hosts Mappe, a 4-day festival of immersion into the creativity of the territories currently taking the spotlight of worldwide political climate.

Turkey, Ukraine, Iran, and USA/Mexico: these are the regions where the enzymes of the contemporary resonate in the arts context, but also in the social and geopolitical ones; they are places where current events, economic upheavals and social impulses attract worldwide attention. They are places of limen, a term derived from Old slavonic and meaning on the border.

Following exhibitions that highlight Japan and Sub-Saharan Africa, Mappe is Palazzo Litta Cultura’s third project dedicated to the geography of contemporary creativity. Once again, the approach is transversal and aims to present a rich program wherein various forms of arts are involved in a collaboration between a diverse set of cultural players from across Milan: MIA Photo Fair Projects in photography, ZEIT Association in visual arts and installation, Ponderosa Music&Art in music curation, esterni for the film festival, and Threes Productions for the DJ set.
