Arcoscenico is the final exhibition of the first phase of Messinscèna , a two-year mapping project of the Roman art scene, with the aim of analyzing artistic research in the capital. The event also acts as a sounding board of the Roman art scene in the national context, as well as a moment of theoretical confrontation between the artists.
Messinscèna is a one-shot exhibition format. Each appointment was dedicated to a different artist, who exhibited his own work and a written theoretical statement for 5 hours.
The artists were invited to install their projects in a space that is always the same for everyone and to identify a particular form of relationship with the user.
During the staging, the public was asked to respect the rules of use decided by the artist and not to produce photographic material. During the project, only the video interviews with the artists and the public were disseminated, the works were seen / experienced only by those present.
In two years, 10 exhibitions, 10 interviews with artists and more than 150 interviews with the public were produced.
Arcoscenico is therefore an opportunity to discover the project in its entirety, see all the works presented during Messinscèna and discover the theoretical motivations of the artists involved.
