The collaboration between RUFA and the Museo di Roma is reinforced with the new exhibition “I’m not” from 5 to 7 July at Palazzo Braschi. The exposition is the result of the experimentation of the RUFA students of the school of photography, coordinated by the lecturer Alessandro Carpentieri.
22 first year photographers received the commission for the realization of 22 portraits of the artists of the course of the first year of visual arts RUFA, with the aim of publishing the works in a new magazine of contemporary Art.
The exhibition “I’m not” will gather in a single space all the portraits made and will be inaugurated on July 5 at 5.00 pm with a musical performance by Gianfranco Tedeschi in double bass solo. The musician will extend the art of portraits to sound through his own compositions and live improvisation.
The rooms that currently welcome the masters of the image, as well as the installation “Flâneur” made by the same school of photography RUFA, for the exhibition “Roma nella camera oscura”, will be the background to some educational activities – workshops proposed by the Academy of Fine Arts legally recognized by the Miur, which are perfectly linked to the message of preservation and transmission of knowledge that the Sovrintendenza has always perpetuated.
On the occasion of the exhibition “I’m not”, July 5 from 10:00 am, RUFA students will take their exams in the exhibition hall so as to have the opportunity to explain to viewers every single work.
The aim is as simple as it is ambitious: to provide a multidisciplinary approach to the subjects that relate to the visual aspect and image, in a stylistic and innovative process.
The starting point of this RUFA – Experience is the idea of synthesis and contamination: the same principle that has allowed the students, in the context of the photography exhibition still in progress, to choose different points of view, combining voices and sounds to a Rome that is observed in silence but at the same time has much to say.
The exhibition will be open from 5 to 7 July, from 10.00am to 19.00pm.
