“We Want to Live”: Lviv Prepares a Joint Project of Ukrainian and Italian Artists
Lviv prepares a joint project of Ukrainian and Italian artists “We Want to Live”, which will start in 2023. The idea of this initiative is to overcome various kinds of borders and build a bridge between the geniuses of culture, arts and even science of the two nations. Gianluigi Ricuperati, curator of the project, told this during the briefing at the Media Center Ukraine.
“The epicenter of this project is the Opera Theater. Imagine that the Opera Theater is an open house where you can walk and in a corner you see the performing artists, and then you see the poets reading the poems, and then you see some singers and musicians. It’s a sort of like a magic house where different kinds of art happen almost at the same time. The process, the details of the idea are still in the works, but for sure it will be total openness, and there will be mediators who will help people get this experience”, Gianluigi Ricuperati explained.
According to Gianluigi Ricuperati, curators may be involved in the project to explain avant-garde art.
“In the Opera House, there is a beautiful hall, called a mirror hall, so the idea is mirroring the art, in which the artists could mirror themselves into spectators, and the other way around. And that is exactly the kind of dialogue that we want to promote”, Gianluigi Ricuperati added.
The project will start in Lviv, but the organizers hope that it will be implemented in other cities as well.
