“La Emancipación de la Disonancia”, the video-art exhibition at the Cervantes.
For the first time in Italy, on Thursday 19 September, at 6.30pm in the Sala Dalí of the Instituto Cervantes in Piazza Navona, the videoart exhibition “La emancipación de la disonancia” will be inaugurated, curated by the Canarian artist Adonay Bermúdez. The exhibition will be open until October 17th.
The traveling exhibition is promoted by Gran Canaria Espacio Digital, a cultural center specializing in the audiovisual art of the Department of Culture of the Municipal Council of Gran Canaria (Spain). The Roman stage is an IILA co-production – Instituto Cervantes, with the collaboration of the Real Academia de España in Rome and Canarias Crea.
The concept of the exhibition starts from a philosophical and anthropological reflection on the use of music, in the History of Man , as a device for unconsciously influencing people. Because of the mass media, music has turned into a merchandise that entertains and idiotizes people through the strategy of repetition.
Considered the great contribution of Schönberg, as well as one of the most important in the history of music, the emancipación de la disonancia consisted in a sort of tonal release, that is, the breaking of the canons and the appearance of a wealth of nuances. Continuing on this same interpretation, the seven artists who participate in this collective exhibition manipulate the music as a subversive act and attribute to it the opposite goal: they make the citizen awaken from his state of torpor.
Francis Naranjo (Spain), Diego Lama (Peru), Regina José Galindo (Guatemala), Saskia Calderón (Ecuador), Joaquín Segura (Mexico), Federico Solmi (Italy) and María Cañas (Spain), all of recognized international trajectory, ( re) use the sound element as a channel to deconstruct hegemonic situations and create an intellectual ferment, based on rhythms and words, which push the viewer to discern violence, ideology, decline of the human being.
The videoart exhibition “La emancipación de la disonancia” can be visited free from Wednesday to Saturday from 4pm to 8pm. The exhibition will remain in Rome until 17 October 2019.
