"Art. Class. War:" an Event Curated by Professor Mike Watson
Fondazione Pastificio Cerere presents, on Saturday 26th of November at 8 pm, “Art. Class. War”, an event curated by JCU Professor Mike Watson. The event will bring together VJ’s, performers and DJ’s to present audio, visual and performance works which address issues about social class and war in the context of art. These artistic forms of expression are able to promote discussion directly by engaging the public both physically and mentally, putting into movement both ideas and bodies. “Art. Class. War” aims to place the art world for one evening firmly at the center of these issues involving the public in a night of music and performance, aiming above all to ask what role art has to play in the nexus of class and war.
The event is organized in collaboration with The Rome Process, a new platform created by Mike Watson which sets out to explore, through a program of events, performances and shows, the possibilities for education through art in cultural and public spaces with particular attention paid towards the city of Rome and its specific cultural traits.
The event is part of the project Transnational Capitalism Examined, the double solo exhibition of Austrian artist Oliver Ressler curated by Mike Watson, organized in collaboration with The Gallery Apart and with the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum in Rome.
