Geraldo de Barros, Brazil
Wang Tong, China
Paolo Canevari, Italy
A selection of works on paper, three generations, three continents. Brazil, China, Italy. Different historical, political and artistic periods. Different social and urban contexts. Through their works, these artists depicts expressions of a visual vocabulary that refers to continuous interconnections between art and society: gathering strong inputs, eager to find a synergy between past and future, oscillating between different contexts.
In this different explorations, the landscape, especially the urban one, becomes a metaphor for the incessant metamorphosis of society: through the lenses of a camera; pioneering innovations in photography, such as scraped negatives, multiple exposures; using the iconinc black color, substituing the ink with used motor oil.
