Cinque Mostre 2016: TRANSLATIO

Cinque Mostre 2016 - TRANSLATIO

In conjunction with the exhibition Cinque Mostre 2016 - Across the Board: Parts of a Whole, which remains on view through April 3, the American Academy in Rome presents the second of two appointments exploring the themes engaged by the exhibition. On March 17 the exhibition will be open exceptionally from 5pm to 8pm.

TRANSLATIO is a collaborative publication proceeding from artist Emily Jacir’s Via Crucis, the newly completed permanent installation commissioned by artache at the church of San Raffaele in Milan. Uniting the artist with two scholars of the Medieval Mediterranean, John Lansdowne and Christopher MacEvitt, the book illustrates the movement of objects, images, people, and place between Palestine and Italy. TRANSLATIO is published by NERO.

Emily Jacir is the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Rome Prize Fellow in Visual Arts; John Lansdowne is the Marian and Andrew Heiskell/Samuel H. Kress Foundation Pre-Doctoral Rome Prize Fellow in Medieval Studies; and Christopher MacEvitt is the ACLS/Frederick Burkhardt Residential Fellow.

Cinque Mostre 2016 is made possible by the Adele Chatfield-Taylor and John Guare Fund for the Arts and by the Fellows Project Fund of the American Academy in Rome.
