January 29th: Museo del Marmo

A local friend recommended a show at Museo del Marmo in Carrara called Apologia. As January continues to reign I did some research, finding out that Apologia is the last project of the 2013 season for Database Carrara; an organisation which seeks to give artists the opportunity to explore a “dream project” with no consideration given to commerciality. This exhibition is the culmination of three artist’s -Greta Alfaro, Juan Pablo Marcìas and Fabrizio Prevedello- 3 month residency in Carrara. With the local marble quarries in mind each artist interrogates mans relationship to nature through sculpture, film and writings. The show runs until February 15th.

I’ll let you know how it goes…
