In the form of an interactive traveling exhibition, the project highlights the cultural memory of lost, abandoned, or reshaped identities of refugee, immigrant, or expatriate female artists of the first, second, and third generations.

To adapt and integrate into new living conditions, creativity becomes, in its various facets, an important tool for development, transmission, and exchange. It leads them towards research and innovation through different fields such as visual arts (art and cinema), fashion, literature, poetry, music, architecture, decoration, gastronomy, craftsmanship, as well as science, health, etc.

 

These essential elements highlight, not just this artistic project, but the cultural interconnections with female migration, making the project HOME IS WHERE WE START FROM an innovative cross-cutting tool for communication, a stimulus for reflection and understanding.

 

The tentative title is: "HOME IS WHERE WE START FROM*," inspired by the book of the psychoanalyst D.W. Winnicott: “Using the word 'culture,' I think of the tradition we inherit, something that constitutes the common heritage of humanity, to which individuals and groups can contribute, and from which each of us can draw (..)."

 

HOME IS WHERE WE START FROM* will be a traveling exhibition during 2024-2025, the participation of women artists. It includes various mediums such as video, photos, installations, paintings, fashion, embroidery, literature, poetry, music, cuisine, craftsmanship, etc.

The first venue is in Milan at ASSAB ONE Art Center in October 2024 and will then travel in 2025.

 

An exhaustive catalog will be published at the end of the exhibition with interviews, texts and works of all the artists they have participated.
