Italy: The New Domestic Landscape, one of the most ambitious design exhibitions ever undertaken by The Museum of Modern Art, will be on view in the galleries and gar- den from May 26 through September 11. Directed and installed by Emilio Ambasz, Curator of Design in the Museum’s Department of Architecture and Design, the exhibition reports on current design developments in Italy with 180 objects for household use and 11 environments commissioned by the Museum.
It’s on this basis that Federica Cogo and Silvia Forse, through installations, paintings and sculptures, tell people about the personal view on domestic life. In the exhibition, called Domestic Landscape, the objects, showing familiar relationship and social dynamics, are tools full of emotional meaning that question the way we normally look at things. The show takes place at the Museo Civico Cavoti and Art&Ars Gallery in Galatina (Lecce).
