SIX GREAT EXHIBITIONS AT REPORTAGE ATRI FESTIVAL
Six great reportage features, with anthological and personal exhibitions, recount various stories: from the tragedy of the earthquake in Abruzzo to the Armenians massacre.
Openings: June 18;
Period: from June 18 to August 18.
Curators: Giovanna Calvenzi, Mario Peliti and Laura Serani
The relationship between the different meanings and expressions of the word ‘skin’ is the theme of this exhibition. From the mummies of Alessandro Albert to the Miss Italys of Gianni Berengo Gardin, from Zed Nelson’s skin worked by plastic surgery to Annette Schreyer’s suffering skin of
girls, and Barbieri’s Tattoed Bodies, 18 photographers speak of
colours, pathologies, old age, discrimination and beauty.
The Abruzzo earthquake in the pictures of Italian photographers.
When the memory needs evidence, the photograph comes into play. An exhibition is the most immediate way of putting these together. The creation of an institutional fund to conserve them.
Curator: Daniele Protti
The first issue of the weekly L’Europeo came out on 4 November 1945 with an editorial by Bertrand Russell and a presentation by the founder and chief editor Arrigo Benedetti.
Young and not so young people took part in Benedetti’s ‘journalism school’ over the years, including Camilla Cederna, Tommaso Besozzi, Oriana Fallaci, Vittorio Gorresio, Vittorio Zincone, Nicola Adelfi, Sandro De Feo, Mino Monicelli, Ennio Flaiano, Giorgio Bocca and others. The exhibition presents the history of this great magazine.
Curator: Paolo Pellegrin
Stanley Greene takes us through the terror and suffering of the Chechen people, accompanies us into the Russia of secrets, takes us along the road to ruin of the opium producers in Afghanistan and once more into Russia. Greene manages to show the durability of his photo-journalism work
over years of research. This is a retrospective in which we feel all the weight of our history and of events too often forgotten.
The memory of trees
Curator: Mario Peliti
Kathryn Cook puts her trust in trees, the earth and the roads taken by the Armenians to pose questions on their genocide by the Young Turks. Cook does not intend making accusations with her work, but trying rather to understand, to penetrate the mysterious story of the Armenian people,
whose ‘disappearance’ began in Istanbul on the night of 23 April 1915. Members of the Armenian elite were arrested then transported to the interior of Anatolia and massacred on the road, along with about a million others so as not to leave any trace. Kathryn Cook went in search of these traces, travelling through Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Turkey and Armenia.
Curator: Annalisa D’Angelo
The Hindu Kush mountains are the subject of Paolo Pellegrin's exhibition. We know his social reportage, from conflicts in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq, to the natural disasters of the tsunami in Banda Ache and the hurricane Katrina in the US, to mention just a few. In this exhibition we find ourselves before broad views of mountains that preserve secrets, conflicts and dark pasts. Aerial views of the skin of the earth: black mountains and permanent scars. Large prints, almost abstract images, but at the same time tactile sensations of the earth.
