Io dico Io – I say I is the title of the show, curated by Cecilia Canziani, Lara Conte and Paola Ugolini, that will open at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea on the 1st of March.
Loosely based on Carla Lonzi’s texts, Io dico Io – I say I originates from a necessity to take the floor and speak for oneself in order to assert one’s subjectivity, by creating a single multitude, a multiplicity of I that resonates with consonances and dissonances.
Io dico Io – I say I, conceived as an open inquiry on the present, pulverizes schematisms and preordained statutes and traces a non-linear route: a narration that settles stories, gazes, imagery. A selfie, a self-portrait, an adventure.
The show puts together more than 40 Italian female artists of different generations, who, in different historical and social contexts, have told their own adventure of authenticity and have expressed their own way of inhabiting the world through a constellation of visions.
