From 10 to 12 December 1M Sotto la Metro returns, the widespread exhibition of interactive art that will transform Metro C into a real “digital art gallery”. Atac makes it known. The project, curated by Arianna Forte and organized by the Fusolab Association in collaboration with Atac, is promoted by Roma Culture and is the winner of the Public Notice Contemporaneously Rome 2020-2021-2022.
The exhibition, now in its second edition, will involve a total of 15 artists from the international scene. This second edition, entirely free, will be staged from 10 to 12 December, from 3 to 9 pm. There are seven installations in this second edition. “Art is an important component of our life, but we often lack the time and above all the spaces to be able to enjoy it – explains the Sole Administrator of Atac, Giovanni Mottura – This project has the merit of bringing art to where we live, confirming once again the goodness of the union between the world of culture and public transport “. For the President of Fusolab 2.0, Dario Minghetti, “With this second edition of 1MSM, Fusolab wants to reaffirm the importance of creating sharing and interaction through digital art and culture. The festival wants to inhabit and enable transit places, such as metro stations, which, thanks to innovative reinterpretations, acquire new meanings “.
The installations of this second edition are seven in all. At the Teano station – continues the Atac – there will be three works at the same time: “OMMMM” by Patricia J. Reis, “Sensible” by Bram Snijders (collective Deframe) and “Quick Fix” by Dries Depoorte.
The other Metro C stops involved in the event are: Mirti, with Filipe Vilas-Boas’s “Mixed-Feelings”; Gardenie, where Shaune Oosthuizen’s “All Hail the Deepfake” will be staged; Pigneto with Pier Alfeo’s “Chat with a stranger”; “After the great success recorded in the first edition – underlines Atac -, the guest installation – Do ut das by Tamara Ceddi – returns to the San Giovanni station – where Das stands for Distributore Automatico Storie. This installation, designed specifically for Atac, is activated every time the customer inserts a ticket or a subscription. Once the title has been validated, the work returns a story / poem printed on a receipt. The installation is made in collaboration with I Poeti der Trullo and their Metroromanticism ”.
