informations

On the occasion of its reopening, the Luigi Pecci Centre for Contemporary Art presents the exhibition The End of the World, curated by director Fabio Cavallucci with the cooperation of (as well as that of the internal team) a large group of international advisors including: Elena Agudio, Antonia Alampi, Luca Barni, Myriam Ben Salah, Marco Brizzi, Lorenzo Bruni, Jota Castro, Wlodek Goldkorn, Katia Krupennikova, Morad Montazami, Giulia Poli, Luisa Santacesaria, Monika Szewczyk and Pier Luigi Tazzi.
 
Through the works of over 50 international artists in a showing that will span the entire exhibition area of the museum - over 3000 square metres - the exhibition will be set up as a kind of exercise of distance which will incite us to take a look at our present from a great distance.
Along the way the audience will experience the feeling of being projected thousands of light years away to view our current world as if it were a fossil, geological eras from the present time, resulting in a feeling of being suspended in a limbo between a now distant past and a still distant future. 
Throughout the exhibition, many expressions and artistic languages will be interconnected: music, theatre, cinema, architecture and dance represented not just as side events but as integral moments of the show, helping to build an immersive and captivating narrative.
 
The exhibition 'The End of the World' will be accompanied by a catalogue published in two languages, Italian and English, as well as a series of conferences and debates which will develop the various themes explored in the exhibition including scientific, philosophical and literary aspects, from more recent theories of physics to the prehistoric, and from science fiction to ecology and sustainability.
