Un sentimento di libertà | A Feeling of Freedom

Published May 11, 2023

January 19 – May 6, 2023

Un sentimento di libertà | A Feeling of Freedom, curated by Tenley Bick, celebrates the diverse identities and experiences of “new Italians” in portraits and digital paintings by the contemporary Afro-Italian artist Luigi Christopher Veggetti Kanku (b. 1978–). Conceived in relation to the artist’s international exhibitions of the digital artworks shown, which he organized in response to the inattention to Afro-Italian artists in arts institutions in Italy, this exhibition also includes new expressionist portraits that invite viewers to contemplate a feeling of freedom that comes from rethinking constructs of nationhood, identity, and belonging.
