Regina José Galindo & Piero Gilardi: Subaltern Theatre
Umbria, Milan, 03/30/2017 - 05/19/2017
Prometeogallery is pleased to announce the opening of its new venue with Subaltern Theatre, featuring works by two eminent artists from different generations - Regina José Galindo and Piero Gilardi, who will share the same site, for the first time ever. It is not a double solo exhibition but one comprised of combinations, parallelisms, contaminations, where two key figures of the relationship between art and politics meet in a physical and metaphorical space at the same time.
This metaphorical place is the social geography of Latin America, always the preferred background for the performances of Regina José Galindo and, in 1982, the temporary field of a theatrical animation by Piero Gilardi in the compromised context of the barrio of San Judas di Managua at the time of the Sandinista victory. The type of aesthetic intervention that characterizes the two artists is, in fact, performativity and urban theatre as the strategy for articulating social claims, albeit in the different modalities typical of each. Hence the title of the exhibition Subaltern Theatre, curated by Marco Scotini, that relocates these experiences within the relationship between dominion and exploitation.
