Details

Via San Gennaro is the first solo exhibition in New York by ISCP resident Sonia Leimer, and is co-curated by Kari Conte, Director of Programs and Exhibitions, ISCP and Luigi Fassi, Artistic Director, MAN_Museo d'Arte Provincia di Nuoro in Italy. Sonia Leimer: Via San Gennaro is winner of the 4th edition of Italian Council (2018), a competition conceived by the Directorate-General for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Peripheries (DGAAP), a department of the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities, to promote Italian contemporary art in the world. The newly-commissioned works in Via San Gennaro address the spatial politics of the Manhattan neighborhood known as Little Italy, vis-a-vis migration and economic and cultural transformation. Composed of several parts including a large-scale sculptural work and video installation, the exhibition continues Leimer's long-standing interest in urban space, architecture, labor and globalization.
