“I, you, him, her”

io-tu-lui-lei-_-manifestoI, you, him, her” is a very particular exhibition: the history and memories of the life of gay and lesbian during the 30’s and 40’s in Venice. Six young Italian artists tried to translate in art the desires, and the memories and the difficulties of a group of people born in Venice during that period.

The aim of the Foundation Bevilacqua La Masa with this exposition is to show the hidden identity of Venice, far from its touristic side and closer to the its real spirit: a big meltin’ pot of different culture and ideas (as it was in the past!).

Venice is considered a “city of love” from everybody, and this exhibition try to show different aspects of the love itself and the idea of freedom which is connected to itself. In fact Venice in the past has been able to accept many diversity, much more than any other city in Italy and in the world. And this hidden side of the city can be seen by all those who are able to see behind its touristic mask.

The young artists involved in this project are: Antonio Bigini and Rachele Maistrello, Tomaso De Luca, Sabina Grasso, Andrea Romano and Annatina Caprez.

The exhibition will be enriched by an interdisciplinary catalogue also contains the critical contributions of some participants in the “A Special Day”: the editors Pier Luigi Tazzi, Filipa Ramos e Camilla Seibezzi, the artist Chiara Fumai, the sociologist Luca Trappolin.
