Fondazione MACC would like to invite you to the retrospective Sulcis Oddity, curated by Emiliana Sabiu

The exhibition documents the first five years of activities of Cherimus, an association active in the Sulcis-Iglesiente region of Sardinia, engaged in the diffusion of a form of territorial development linked to the realisation of contemporary art projects.

The exhibition recounts the reality of an association; one of its kind in Sardinia, that is able to work with artists from all over the world while actively engaging with the local fabric of Sulcis. The works exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Calasetta, describe the development of a special relationship between Cherimus and the territory it is active in: a place, Sulcis, which, from its marginalised position is transformed into an ideal centre for the development of new projects, defining, time after time new relational scenarios and possible new horizons. The retrospective intends to trace an implicit portrait of Sulcis-Iglesiente: through a selection of works designed and made exclusively for this territory, allowing for its distinguishing contradictions and complexities to be read.
