21 Feb-15 March. Sala 1 presents an exhibition project with works by Vanessa M. Palomba, creator of the show, Michelle Rogers and Ayesha Sultana.
The work of the three artists commemorates the victims of New York's Triangle Shirtwaist Factory when a fire in 1911 gutted the building killing 146 people who were locked inside, mainly Russian, Irish and Italian women; and the victims of the 2013 collapse of the Rana Plaza Factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing 1,137 textile workers who produced clothing for well-known Western brands.
Both cases led to the respective countries introducing reforms to prevent similar disasters from happening again.
Palomba, from the UK, and Rogers, from Ireland, are based in Rome, while Sultana is based in Dhaka.
Inauguration Monday 20 February at 18.00.
