Palmieri Foundation, Lecce

From 7 to 21 March 2020

Curated by Dores Sacquegna

ART WOMAN is an international platform for contemporary art events dedicated to national and international women artists. Since 2005, Primo Piano LivinGallery has presented artists from all over the world, but not only. Seminars, performances and celebrities including PAM LONGOBARDI, GRIMANESA AMOROS, XIAO LU, ORLAN and many others. For 2020 the show continues with the presence of performers and works by artists such as  MARIA LAI, MARISA MERZ, SHIRIN NESHAT. The place of the event is the Palmieri Foundation, a deconsecrated and Renaissance church located in the old city of Lecce. Note from the sixteenth century as the church of “Pentite”, or San Sebastiano. After various uses and after a careful restoration by the noble Palmieri family, this place has become a prestigious location that hosts events and attracts visitors throughout the year.

In a period of great changes and geo-political conflicts, the GEO-GRAPHIES event focuses attention on the question of the identity and dignity of every woman of any social class and background. GEO (earth) and GRAPHIA (writing) offers input on which to activate his artistic and expressive sense. The theme is free. Works focusing on social issues will be particularly appreciated.
