After a first exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art MAXXI of Rome, La Rue. Where the world is created, designed by Hou Hanru, gives pride to the video. Indeed, it is through screens that we see the world today, as interfaces between private and public sphere. Bringing together 60 artists from around the world, the exhibition offers a lively, poetic and political panorama of the public square.
Among the topics covered include: the politics, including a clash of drawings and paintings related to social movements, protests and demonstrations the daily that includes work, leisure, meals. Artists perceive the street as an extension of the domestic space and as a space of marginalization and social exclusion. Action: the street has been invested since at least the 1960s by the artists. It has often been thought of as the privileged context of experiments and actions. A transitional space: The street allows porosities between inside and outside, moments of sharing and common experiences. Mapping: traffic, commerce, entertainment, lighting will draw hierarchy systems.
