“To be played”. Contemporary art at the Giardino Giusti in Verona


From 11 October through 22 November 2019, Giardino Giusti and Urbs Picta present the exhibition “To be Played – Video-art, moving images, and multimedia-installations by the eighties generation”.
The event is also an occasion to visit the magnificent “Appartamento ‘900” (20th Century Apartment), the residence of the Giusti family until 1944, recently re-opened to the public.
Widely regarded as one of the best examples of Italian garden – enriched by ancient Roman artifacts, a majestic cypress avenue, and one of Europe’s oldest hedge mazes – the Giardino  Giusti garden thus becomes a contemporary art venue presenting the work of young artists who explore different expressive and narrative interpretations of video art.

Recent works by Helen Dowling, Nina Fiocco, Anna Franceschini, Adelita Husni-Bey, Invernomuto, Michal Martychowiec, Elena Mazzi, Jacopo Mazzonelli, Giulio Squillacciotti, and Luca Trevisani contribute to an articulate exhibition featuring complex cross-references and combinations of different communication languages – including documentary, cinema, and experimental moving-image works.
The video-works were selected to create a dialog with the location which, rather than being used a neutral “container”, has been considered an active component of the exhibition.
To be played” is curated by Jessica Bianchera and Marta Ferretti in collaboration with ArtVerona e Careof, and with the support of the Province of Verona, the Municipality of Verona, and the Verona Fine Art Academy.
