#iohocuradite it an idea realised by Lorenzo Barbera, Ignazio Mortellaro and Agata Polizzi, it arises from the desire to stimulate re ection on issues such as care, solidarity, love, wealth and poverty, fear and authority, solitude and old age, the sense of community.
#iohocuradite is a project of solidarity which has come into action due to the pressing necessity to provide relief for the poor people that are now in serious trouble with the sudden onset of the Covid-19 emergency. These people do not have access to any type of state aid, as they are invisible to society.
#iohocuradite calls for the support of a selected group of artists who in recent years have passed through Palermo, contributing with their work and leaving a trace on the cultural fabric of the city, they are now invited to contribute, once again, via their art and with their generosity. Thus was born the idea of using the network as a virtual gallery, an exhibition space where you can buy a piece of art offered at a special price, the proceeds will be entirely donated to charity in favour of two voluntary associations* operating in the city of Palermo that the donor can choose from.
#iohocuradite imagines a new beginning through the creation of an abecedario / Spelling-book, a re ection on 26 words for 26 artists, as a declaration of the two great needs of our time, to nd new meanings and help the weakest. A process of dialogue and re ection on the collective experience we are living through, the power of language becomes a tool for comparison but at the same time for resistance. All the works will be visible in the virtual gallery on the @iohocuradite Instagram page and can be purchased via a free offer on a minimum base price.
