Continuing its commitment in presenting contemporary art from other regions of the world, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo is proud to introduce Italian and International audiences to a series of works reflecting artistic developments across Asia and to further develop its dialogue with the communities there, enriching the Italian context in which the Fondazione is placed.
Tell Me a Story: Locality and Narrative draws on artists from across Asia to share 12 stories from distinct regional cultures as they have evolved throughout the modern era. Through the exploration of personal ties between artist and environment, each work exhibits multiple facets of local life, revealing in the process a side of Asia often left unseen and unheard. Though originating from different locations and cultures, these stories harmonise with one another as much as they contrast. For, though each work expresses a different saga, they nonetheless manifest a deeper, shared history, bringing to view the full complexity of existence “on the ground” for contemporary Asian societies.
