On Friday, November 4, 2022, in the setting of Artissima, PAV is pleased to inaugurate Tierra, a solo exhibition of artist Regina José Galindo, a Guatemalan artist who for more than 20 years has been investigating the theme of social justice through performative practices whose expressive center of gravity lies in the relationship between the body and the environment.
The exhibition, curated by Marco Scotini, follows those dedicated to the Indian artist Navjot Altaf and the Indonesian artist Arahmaiani in investigating the specific relationships between environmental exploitation and oppressed subjects, women and minorities, decentralizing the gaze beyond the geographical and cultural boundaries of the so-called West.
The exhibition traces the 20-year career of Galindo (winner of the Golden Lion at the 51st Venice Biennale as best young artist) by focusing on the ways in which each of her contacts with natural elements should be read intersectionally and militantly. And among all natural elements, the earth that gives the exhibition its title has its own particular status: Galindo's approach eschews any essentialist declination of the relationship between earth and the female body, anticipating and nonetheless influencing the most recent trends in ecofeminist artistic research. The itinerary exhibits the results of an approach that has evolved over the years, from the initial focus on Guatemalan socio-political issues, to the (site-specific) attention to the contexts and communities with which the artist interacts.
On the occasion of the opening at 7:30 p.m., the artist will present the previously unseen performance COAL TO LIGHT THE FIRE based on fossil matter, in connection with the exhibition itinerary and the current humanitarian and energy crisis.

The exhibition JOURNEY TO ITALY XXI - The gaze on the other is a discussion of the theme of travel in the 21st century through the works of eight artists living and working between Italy and Germany. Since Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Journey to Italy, the nature and meaning of travel have radically changed.
Invited to answer the question: how do you relate to the other? the artists tell their stories and address the theme of travel through different points of view that, in their arrangement, take the form of stages in a dialogue. In the form of photography, video, painting and installation, they approach current social issues, such as migration, the memory of fascism or cultural appropriation.
