#12 TALES IN MILANO – “GIVE ME YESTERDAY”

MICHELE DEL RE, IL SEGRETO DEL GIARDINO DEL SOGNO SET IN FONDAZIONE PRADA’S BRAND NEW EXHIBITION SPACE (THE OSSERVATORIO, WHOSE LOCATION IN GALLERIA VITTORIO EMANUELE II IS WORTH A VISIT), THE SHOW “GIVE ME YESTERDAY” CURATED BY FRANCESCO ZANOT OPENED IN LATE DECEMBER, INCLUDING OVER 50 WORKS BY YOUNG ARTISTS (M.BONAJO, T. DUARTE, I. FENARA, G. REYNOLDS AND MANY OTHERS) WHO EXPLORE THE USE OF PHOTOGRAPHY AS A PERSONAL DIARY. IN A CONTEXT CHARACTERIZED BY THE PERVASIVE PRESENCE OF PHOTOGRAPHY DEVICES AND IMAGES PRODUCED AND SHARED THROUGH DIGITAL PLATFORMS, THESE ARTISTS ARE ABLE TO CREATE A NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC DIARY, AS AN IMITATION OF THE INTERNET’S REPETITIVE CATALOGUING OF IMAGES, THROUGH AN APPROPRIATE CARE IN THE SETTING, IN CONTRAST WITH THE SPONTANEITY OF THE DOCUMENTARY STYLE. THE BASIS OF THE EXHIBITION IS A PROJECT TO IMPOSE WELL-THOUGHTOUT STRUCTURAL AND CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK OVER EVERYDAY SPONTANEITY, ALSO BY THE APPLICATION OF A MODULAR METHOD AND/OR A COMBINATION OF REALITY AND DIGITAL MANIPULATION. ARTICULATED OVER BOTH LEVELS OF THE OSSERVATORIO, THE EXHIBITION ACCOMPANIES THE VISITOR IN HIS JOURNEY THROUGH THE FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS NOT ONLY OF PHOTOGRAPHY, BUT ALSO THE GAZE ON THE WORLD AND THE INDIVIDUAL. A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF MILAN’S OPENNESS TO NEW: HAPPY REBIRTH.
“GIVE ME YESTERDAY”, 21 DEC 2016 – 12 MAR 2017 , FONDAZIONE PRADA OSSERVATORIO, GALLERIA VITTORIO EMANUELE II, MILANO.
