The Italian Embassy in Venezuela and the Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with the Cultural Chacao Center, Chacao Culture, TAC Room, Trasnocho Cultural, CAVENIT, Vinccler, Trevi, Fundavag-Vagnoni, Ghella, Bulkguasare, Astaldi and Solera , Are pleased to announce the intergenerational, transdisciplinary and multicultural exhibition of Disio. Nostalgia of the Future, edited by Antonello Tolve, with the contribution of Carolina Balza and Félix Suazo and with the valuable collaboration of Patricia Hambrona and Narda Zapata, to be held in Caracas on June 4, 2017 in the spaces of the TAC Room (Trasnocho Cultural, 11:00) and de La Caja (Cultural Cultural Center Chacao, 16:00) and will be completed by a documentary exhibition at the Italian Cultural Institute (5 June, 17:00).

The exhibition wants to offer a constructive twinning between two countries that have some visual confluence and some attitudes that leap out the ditch of diversity to give rise to a series of exchanges, intermittent interventions that create escape routes, multiple, choral, polyphonic forces Whose polyphony lay the basis for reflection on brotherhood, on thoughts still conceivable, on the domains of freedom.

Marked by a relationship of cultural participation, linguistic contamination, necessary coexistence of differences and the basic evocation of a unterschiedlich (Nietzsche), the exhibition wants to reflect on a series of contemporary phenomena that, born from the impetus of globalization, always show codes More open to the fusion of styles, expressions, and creative formulas that overcome the boundary of everyday life and transform the work into a device of thoughtful order that invites to see from a new height the world, things, and events.

Divided into three sections - The presence of the future, Return and Next Upcoming, each of which is to be understood as the confluence of the others, the project Déjus, term borrowed from Dante (Purgatory, VIII, vv. 1-3: "It was already The time that turns the goddess') to indicate the sgambetto at the time of saudade, wants to be a moment of debate on the state of the art, a place that re-activates critical judgment and intelligence from an atmosphere from which they are often bandits .

Created by the encounter of some figures (Armando Reveron, Umberto Boccioni, Marcel Duchamp, Kazimir Malevič) whose unquestionable aesthetic reach overcomes time, space and all kinds of territoriality The presence of the future (first section organized in the spaces of the TAC Room - Trasnocho Cultural, directed by Félix Suazo) draws a square - formed by Reveron's Teleconferencing, the Design for Unique Forms of Continuity in Boccioni's Space, Malevič's Suprematist Design and Duchamp's Nudes - whose magnetic power is vision Future, constant presence of the present, reading of the future. Two recent generation names (Luis Arroyo and Magdalena Fernandez) come into this visual ring with a joint work as appendices to a reflection that extends to the present and present of today to highlight the growth of art, critical thinking, Of celestial ideology that acts on the future as a time of conjugation. With a significant work, always in the same area, the five Italian artists and the ten Venezuelans also present in the mid section (Return) present an aesthetic trace of their work, a clue, a footprint capable of marking their vision of the world, Their look to come.

The return section (Return, organized in La Caja's spaces - Cultural Chacao Center, headed by Carolina Balza) is the heart of the exhibition, and wants to propose site-specific works created by the trialogo of the artists of the five generations who ideally cover the second Twentieth Century - the idea is to put these artists in conversation first and foremost in an epistle and then real, with the aim of making them work together in the Cultural Chacao Center, where it is hoped that they will perform six-handed works between the interior and exterior spaces, Between the open and the closed, between Innen and Aussen.

Thanks to the creative force of five Italian artists - Enrico Pulsoni, Giovanni Termini, Eugenio Tibaldi, Domeni
