In the frame of the Venice Biennale 2019, Moleskine Foundation in collaboration with UNHCR present the exhibition “Where is South?“, the result of a workshop made by 25 young people between 18 and 30 years of different nationalities and background, many of which share refugee status or are asylum seekers in Italy.
The exhibition is hosted within Rothko in Lampedusa, a contemporary art exhibition promoted by UNHCR and partnered by Moleskine Foundation.
The Venetian stop of the Tour “Where is South?” – third stage of 6, in different cities of the world – thus enriches the theme at the center of the exhibition “Rothko in Lampedusa ”, focused on the works of eight established artists who have personally lived the condition of a refugee or who have made this theme a cornerstone of their own artistic career. Alongside them, five emerging artists – who live currently refugee status –, showcase their work with the aim of shedding new light on the condition and on the talent of people forced to flee.
