The exhibition “African Metropolis. An imaginary city”, scheduled from June 22nd to November 4th at the MAXXI Museum in Rome, has Canon as Digital Imaging Partner.
The project, created in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, consists of more than 100 works by 34 artists designed to reflect on the great social and cultural transformations of our time, with particular reference to Africa. The exhibition is built around five “metropolitan actions”, called Wandering, Belonging, Recognizing, Imagining and Reconstructing, which aim to offer the different looks of those who travel and discover the urban environment, and to illustrate the complex structure of a contemporary metropolis .
Canon’s participation confirms the company’s commitment to supporting the cultural and social encounter through art and the narrative power of images.
Specifically, Canon has made available its digital printing technologies for the realization of most of the photographic prints of the artists in the exhibition. In recent years, there have been many initiatives of artistic and cultural value that Canon has chosen to support as Digital Imaging Partner, taking care of aspects such as video projection, print, image capture and immersive reproduction of the images, with fundamental objective of creating new ways of enjoying the Italian artistic and cultural heritage.
“We are pleased to work again with the MAXXI Museum in Rome to celebrate a great moment of encounter between cultures” – said Massimo Macarti, CEO of Canon Italia. “Once again, our technology is at the service of an important narrative project, able to excite and encourage dialogue between distant countries.”
