“Tomorrows. Notes on the Future of Earth” brings six international artists to Verona in an exhibition that explores the effects of globalization, the environmental crisis, and man’s impact on the planet. The exhibits lead a journey around the world to understand what the most distant cultures have in common regarding the ecological theme, from the coal mining process in Colombia to mining in China and its government’s censorship, through capitalism and terra-platist theories. Through Nov. 12, free admission to the exhibits at Castel San Pietro.
Jessica Bianchera and Marta Ferretti curated the exhibition, which focuses on videos and moving images with art, ecology, and sustainability as shared denominators. In their works, Sophia Al Maria, Mo Kong, the SITESIZE collective, Jonas Staal, Natália Trejbalová, and Driant Zeneli explore issues such as eco-anxiety, the link between humans and the environment in which they live, and sociocultural dynamics. As a result, transdisciplinary research combining many languages emerges.
The aim of the exhibition, the curators explain, is not to give answers; “we intend rather to ask questions and attempt a mapping, albeit partial, of realities and personalities that have so far wondered about these issues, fostering awareness of new initiatives and projects that are emerging and growing exponentially in both quantitative and qualitative terms.”
The exhibition “Tomorrow. Notes on the Future of Earth” is part of a larger initiative that includes a public program of talks, panel discussions, workshops, and meetings with scientists, anthropologists, sociologists, and researchers. The program also includes a residency and production award, supported by Fondazione Cariverona, UniCredit, ArtVerona, Contemporanea – Verone University with Urbs Picta and in collaboration with Accademia di Belle Arti statale di Verona, AGIVERONA, Careof, Finemateria, LOOP Barcelona, MA*GA Museo Arte Gallarate; media partner exibart. The finest project will be chosen by an international jury, who will then select the artist who will work on it while on residency in Italy or abroad and present it at ArtVerona 2024.
