Palazzo Riso, in Palermo, presents the exhibition A proposal for articulating works and places (part 2) with works of artists coming from the 3rd AiM International Biennale Festival, Marrakesh 2009. In Palermo, for its second set up, the exhibition includes a reduced number of artists and the installation of the works is articulated in the context of the Palazzo Riso and its architectural specificities. This version of the exhibition corresponds with the city of Palermo and the topics enunciated by the artists while proposing to reflect on the function of art its existence, and that it is pertinent to the societies in which it appears. The exhibition travels, without reproducing itself, from Palais Bahia, a royal palace, to Palazzo Riso, a family’s palace. While engaging with the historical as well as the present and geographical context of the two palaces, Works and Places continues its exceptional history. The artworks appear beyond this temporality, another space on another continent, and perhaps carry other significances.
R22 radio is broadcasting from Sicily, during the opening week, and produces special programs on Works and Places during the five months of the exhibition in Palermo.
This program is realised at Palazzo Riso, by Valentina Carollo and Abdellah Karroum
