“Io dico Io – I say I” is the title of the show, curated by Cecilia Canziani, Lara Conte and Paola Ugolini, that was supposed to open at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in March 2020 but is now opening in March 2021. Loosely based on Carla Lonzi’s texts, “Io dico Io – I say I“originates from a necessity to take the floor and speak for oneself in order to assert one’s subjectivity, by creating a single multitude, a multiplicity of I that resonates with consonances and dissonances.
The show puts together Italian female artists of different generations, who, in different historical and social contexts, have told their own adventure of authenticity and have expressed their own way of inhabiting the world through a constellation of visions.
Through a public program consisting of talks, cinema, workshops and a call to action, “Io dico Io – I say I” creates a dialogue between numerous figures in the world of culture around the topics that are introduced by the show. The program is meant to create a common ground for discussion, a space for relations and shared time.
