ArtCan is delighted to announce that the joint Arte Borgo | ArtCan exhibition ‘Transparent as a Dragonfly’ is arriving in London following the successful launch in Rome in October 2023.

Curators Anna Isopo and Martina Scavone of Arte Borgo with Lesley Bunch and Rita Carta Manias of ArtCan invited artists to choose a line, passage or chapter from ‘Invisible Cities’, and propose work in response to it to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Italo Calvino’s birth.

The title for the exhibition is taken from a passage in Calvino’s Invisible Cities: “Perhaps everything lies in knowing what words to speak, what actions to perform, and in what order and rhythm; or else someone’s gaze, answer, gesture is enough; it is enough for someone to do something for the sheer pleasure of doing it, and for his pleasure to become the pleasure of others: at that moment, all spaces change, all heights, distances; the city is transfigured, becomes crystalline, transparent as a dragonfly” (p.140 'Invisible Cities' Vintage, Random House 1997)

Participating artists:

Axel Becker, Serafino Botticelli, Lesley Bunch, Paola Ceci, Tere Chad, Francesca Ciaudano, Felicia Cleper-Borkovi AIA, Benedict Collins Rice, Alan Codd, Phil Cope, Roberta De Caro, Luigi De Leonibus, Stathis Dimitriadis, Antonio Esposito, Diane Frost, Waltraud Gemein, Silvio Gorelli, Cathy Green, Monika Hartl, Rian Hotton, Catherine Jacobs, Silvana Landolfi, Sandy Layton, OXALEA - Léa Layeux, Lola Llinares, Andrea Lobel, Lawrence Mathias, Rebecca Moss Guyver, Maria Pacheco Cibils, Hedy Parry-Davies, Ada Pasta, Desa Philippi, Jane Pryor, Luciano Puzzo, Paulina Ree, Maria Stamati, Anna Tonelli, Rebecca Tucker, Maz Weineck.
