Sharing Archive started the research and the production of an hybrid and dinamic project which puts in relation cinema and visual art, inviting international artists to compare themselves with an important portrait of the post war and industrialized Italy, in a social and working clime of change, through the documents of the Archivio Nazionale Cinema Impresa di Ivrea (CIAN).
The artists Beto Shwafaty and the duo Raphaël Cuomo & Maria Iorio has been invited to realize two works after a long period of research and residency in Ivrea, today part of UNESCO heritage for the industrial architecture, which will be presented in an exhibition on 23 November 2019.
To complete the exhibition by il Salone dei 200 in the ex Olivetti Industry, the same day will be organized a thematic conference in Ivrea with international guests in order to reflect on the relationship between the archive, the contemporary history and art, through many international practices and experiences.
The project is realized with the support of Compagnia di San Paolo, in the context of Bando ORA! Produzioni di Cultura Contemporanea.
