ART AS A TOOL: THE ART OF EXCHANGING WORLDS

César Meneghetti talks with the curator Simonetta Lux, president of the Committee for Social Affairs at Camera dei Deputati Mario Marazziti, Sant'Egidio ArtLab Maria Carosio and the artist Stephen Cox. Moderated by the IIC Director Marco Delogu.

Through multi-disciplinary interventions, this seminar will be exploring the themes of the exhibition and the project: the question of the confine between normality and diversity, the role of art in the exploration of the world of the excluded, the opportunities for change and overcoming prejudices.

The work/project I\O_ IO È UN ALTRO / I\O_ I IS AN OTHER by the artist César Meneghetti started in March 2010, from an intense relational process and exchange with more than 200 people with disabilities involved in the Art Workshops of the Sant’Egidio Community in Rome.
César Meneghetti interest in the research into geographical, political, linguistic and mental confines, affirms the revolutionary and transformative potential of art, capable of modifying our perception of reality and of ourselves and to offer an opportunity for sharing experiences. The artist states “Art cannot reach its objective if it precludes something or someone, nobody should be excluded or relegated to a land of silence and isolation.

I\O_ IO È UN ALTRO / I\O_ I IS AN OTHER by Meneghetti is a synergy with the artist and the Art Workshops of the Sant’Egidio Community – Rome which invited him to create one of his projects which combines art and social inclusion. The aim of the Community is to affirm the dignity of the person and the emancipation of people from exclusion. An Italian thin red line which has in the last century linked thinkers such as Nino Costa, Maria Montessori, Don Milani, Franco Basaglia.

After the event in October with L’Atelier dell’Errore and the talk about the Outsider Art with Massimiliano Gioni, which had attracted great attention in 2013 Biennale edition directed by Gioni, this is another important event focussing on the different ways to make a different art.

This event is kindly supported by Crearte-Studio.
