Places of memory – Fields of vision
State Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Thessaloníki, 12/21/2012 - 02/24/2013
The memory of Thessaloniki and other neighboring cities, such as Istanbul or Belgrade, the individual outline of each place through testimonies, overlaps, remnants and revelations, and the city itself as a mnemonic space and psychic landscape, comprise the basic axes of the exhibition “Places of memory – Fields of vision”, organized by the Contemporary Art Center of Thessaloniki (SMCA) at the Warehouse Β1, port area, from December 21, 2012 to February 24, 2013 (Opening: Friday, December 21, 2012, 20:30*. Opening hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10:00-18:00).
Sixteen paintings, prints, photographs, videos and installations –some older productions of the Contemporary Art Center of Thessaloniki, as well as new productions that will be presented for the first time– intertwine and focus on the city’s experienced memory, the imagining of its past life and its dynamic projection in the future; they put on the map different regions from those usually celebrated through official, commemorative practices.
The exhibition is part of the main program of the “Invisible Cities Festival. A Cosmography” co-organized by the State Museum of Contemporary Art and the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art. There will be also parallel events, educational programs and guided tours.
