Ti Bergamo

Ti Bergamo

Description

Ti Bergamo is the new multimedia exhibition presented by Gamec, curated by Lorenzo Giusti and Valentina Gervasoni. A collective testimony made of photos, video installations and artworks that tells the story of Bergamo during the health emergency. 

The exhibition takes its title from the picture created and donated to the museum by Romanian artist Dan Perjovschi in support of the fundraising campaign for the Giovanni XXIII Hospital. It is not a classic exhibition but rather a heterogeneous collection of materials and testimonies with Bergamo, its places and its history as protagonists. Works of art and productions from below, photographic images, videos, gestures and thoughts tell the story of a community in a difficult time.

The exhibition is divided into several sections, the first dedicated to a series of initiatives related to the press: a collection of editions of the newspaper L’Eco di Bergamo; the drawings about the pandemic by Dan Perjovschi; the recent cartoons by the famous Bergamo sketcher Bruno Bozzetto; the project by illustrator Emiliano Ponzi for The Washington Post, which tells the daily life of a Milanese in quarantine; the report by Davide Agazzi, Bergamonews journalist, and the docufilm Noi, Bergamo. Architecture of a Rebirth, created by the cultural startup Squareworld Studio, thanks to the involvement of twelve young artists and creatives.

The second section hosts 16 images of Bergamo as well as the works of some Bergamasco artists, including Andrea Mastrovito, who presents his latest film I Am Not Legend.

One room of the museum is entirely dedicated to Radio GAMeCand Radio GAMeC Real Live, the project born on the Gallery's social networks during the health emergency. There are also visual contributions made by some of the artists who participated in the project.

The artistic duo MASBEDO also presents, on the occasion of the exhibition, two unpublished video works.

A large installation collected over 200 photographs from the 100 Photographers for Bergamo initiative, a project created to finance the Resuscitation and Intensive Care units of the Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital. Accompanying the photographic exhibition is the recording of the concert by Israeli singer Noa which was held in April to support the city hospital.
