International contemporary art from a private collection in Sardinia

AMERICAS is the second step of the prestigious multi-year exhibition programme VIEWS ON THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD, dedicated to the great International contemporary art. Born within the partnership network promoted by Consorzio Camù, the project exhibits Antonio Manca’s private collection  ,based in Sardinia but open to the world.

At the beginning of a problematic “Trump era”, AMERICAS is an important exhibition, socially involved in our present: it reaffirms the importance of meeting, dialogue and contamination, while politics imposes walls and separation; when the law divides, art connects, thanks to those who built a bridge between cultures through their courage to pursue uncomfortable and counter-current ideas.

In AMERICAS, artists are of utmost importance, including contemporary icons such as David LaChapelle, Andres Serrano, Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin. A privileged space is reserved to a collection of images from Goldin’s most famous series, like The Ballad of Sexual Dependency, an intimate diary of love and perdition against the self-righteousness of the American middle-class.
