For 8 years, Fondazione ARIA in cooperation with the municipality of Atri has been organizing Stills of Peace and Everyday Life contemporary art festival, based on the dialogue between distant cultures through the language of contemporary art.
After Pakistan, Spain, France, China, Morocco, Iran and Japan, Stills of Peace 2021’s journey continues discussing and searching for knowledge among different world artistic cultures; this year it’s South Korea’s turn, a country of a millenary culture always considered as a sort of bridge between the “Asian tigers” China and Japan. Among the countries that contribute the most to reconsidering westernization patterns, South Korea reveals its great creative drive in almost all fine-art fields, such as cinema, music, visual arts.
The 8th edition of contemporary art and culture exhibition is set in Atri by Fondazione Aria featuring a team of five curators, fourteen artists, five exhibitions, including a photography exposition, and a film festival of South Korean movies with Italian subtitles.
Sculpture, painting, installations, photography, video art, performance, cinema forge the dialogue and the exchange between different cultures. Stills of Peace is a common ground respectfully open to differences; mutual understanding is the key to a deeper sharing of the humanistic and existential values that underlie each single Culture; everyone gets out richer from that ground, especially in humanity
