Facing the Camera: 50 years of Italian portraits
Feb 13 to March 13, 2020
Gallery hours: Mon - Fri: 10:00am - 1:00pm; 2:00pm - 5:00pm
(closed daily from 1pm - 2pm)
An exhibition featuring the work of 20 Italian photographers curated by Marco Delogu. Facing the Camera documents a wide swath of Italian life between 1968 and 2018 through the eyes of 20 photographers from different generations and regions of Italy, including Jacopo Benassi, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lisetta Carmi, Marco Delogu, Guido Guidi, Ugo Mulas, Moira Ricci, Ferdinando Scianna, Paolo Ventura, and others. These portraits challenge our assumptions about Italian identity, which has been shaped by its eventful history, fluid borders, and a surprisingly heterogeneous population. Following presentations in London and New York, Facing the Camera opens in Toronto with a free public reception on Wednesday February 13 at 6:30 PM.
