Rome exhibition: Visual Diary by Liana Miuccio

Rome's Galleria d'Arte Moderna, the municipal modern art gallery, hosts an innovative visual and literary exhibition by Liana Miuccio, from 18 November until 12 March 2023.

Titled Visual Diary, the exhibition continues the artist's ongoing study of identity, memory and migration through the juxtaposition of photographs and videos with excerpts from Pulitzer Prize winning writer Jhumpa Lahiri.

Miuccio's gaze, in dialogue with Lahiri's excerpts, explores the search for identity and a sense of place through images of contemporary daily life. Miuccio creates an intimate Visual Diary; in the gallery filled with photographs, videos and everyday objects.

Organisers say the exhibition "invites visitors to participate in a collective experience that celebrates the quotidian life which unites us all."

On opening day, 17 November, from 18.00-19.00 there will be a presentation by Liana Miuccio, in conversation with Jhumpa Lahiri, Claudio Crescentini (Superintendence of the Capitoline), Lindsay Harris (Andrew Heiskell Arts Director, ad interim, American Academy in Rome), and Jennifer Pastore (Executive Photography Director, WSJ. The Wall Street Journal Magazine).

A simultaneous interpreter will be present. The opening of the exhibition, from 19.00 to 21.00, will follow the presentation.
