After the success of the previous editions (2016 and 2018), the third contemporary art exhibition Arteporto | Fuori Confine opens this year
to the collaboration with important bodies, academies and territorial institutions: promoted by GAF – Glocal Art Factory APS, it avails itself of the contribution of the Lazio Regional Council, of the contribution and patronage of the Municipality of Fiumicino, of the collaboration with the Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica, always partner of the project, as well as the Academy of Romania, the Academy of Hungary, the Temple University Rome Campus, the RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts, the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome, the Academy of Fine Arts of Frosinone and Terra Arte – Contemporary sculpture park.
The theme of Arteporto 2021, “Fuori Confine”, in fact, starts from the need to get out of one’s own safe spaces, to go further, finding a new vital impulse in working with several hands, after this period of isolation, which helps us to rethink to the world as a community. Furthermore, Fuori Confine relaunches the millenary vocation of “Rome’s gateway to the world” that characterizes the area hosting the exhibition: the first seat of the ancient imperial ports, today, for the most part, of the international airport of Fiumicino. An area of (un) border, of departure and reception, which for centuries has brought together people, places, identities and different cultures.
In the open spaces of the marvelous archaeological area of the Imperial Ports of Claudius and Trajan, the exhibition will once again constitute an important moment of confrontation in the artistic field and, at the same time, will establish an interactive link of belonging and participation with the coastal territory. The exhibition looks like an out of bounds exhibition: the works come out of the closed spaces of the studios and galleries to be placed outdoors in direct contact with the luxuriant vegetation and the action of atmospheric agents, immersed in a millenary history powerfully evoked by the monumental archaeological remains present on the site. It is also a generational border, with artists of all ages, from students of the Academies of Fine Arts, selected by their teachers, to renowned artists and decades of experience. A feeling that inevitably leads to another widespread out-of-bounds in the exhibition, that of the paralyzing pandemic that for almost two years has affected human life on the entire planet and from which, through a thousand difficulties, we try to go beyond.
The invited artists, physically and conceptually participating in this mobile multitude, will offer, through their site specific works, creative training and sensibilities forged from their personal and professional history, from that of their country of origin, from the dialectical set of knowledge, values, symbols and norms of the society in which they lived; a cultural and generational universe that in contact with different experiences triggers short circuits and unprecedented reflections, proposing a transversal reading of space, capable of enhancing differences by enhancing tangencies or conflicts.
