No Man’s Library / La Biblioteca di Tutti
curated by Zerynthia
Opening May 10th 2018 – 6 PM
Ex Biblioteca Universitaria, Piazza Università 21, Sassari (IT)
Duration of the exhibition: 11/05/2018 – 30/06/2018
It happens in Sardinia, the marvellous island.
What’s going on? The spaces of the former library of the old University of Sassari – long since empty of their books that have migrated to a new building – are filled with contemporary art. Ceramics, textiles, bronze, glass and water, small objects, neon and laser, site-specific interventions… and obviously tons of paper, tons of words and different languages. Then there’s photographers, poets and filmmakers making their contributions. An exhibition in which each of the 54 artists of the international scene(16 nations and 4 generations) is given a set of shelves, from A to X, like in any respectable library. The exhibition, curated by Zerynthia, is accompanied by a programme of interdisciplinary workshops and seminars coordinated by Decamaster / University of Sassari.
