Venerdì 29 luglio dalle 20 vernissage al Museo di Arte Contemporanea , in via S. Francesco d’Assisi 30, Catania.
The MacS collection presents us with a constant: it is permanently growing, gathering a section of contemporary artistic experience, increasing not only the cultural patrimony of the museum but by transitive property also that of the city itself. The cultural offering of MacS can be seen as an opportunity to reflect on the value that Art assumes in an historical moment such as that which we are currently experiencing, signified by debilitation and deriving extremism, in itself an oxymoron to the expressive nature of art that has always induced and produced emancipation. The Italian artists collection is the latest phase that the museum offers to the area and on this occasion presents an expansion of its exhibition space to the public. The aim is not to legitimize its presence through self-referencing but rather to create cultural politics that as mentioned, provide us with a chance tothink through Art and that can indeed translate into cultural debate.
