Poems I Will Never Release, 2007–2017
In these uncertain times, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is pleased to offer a virtual alternative to explore the exhibition Poems I Will Never Release, 2007–2017, the first retrospective dedicated to Italian artist Chiara Fumai (Rome, 1978 – Bari, 2017).
The exhibition originally meant to inaugurate earlier in November has finally opened to the public on November 28, 2020. Due to the inevitable impact of the pandemic on accessibility, the Centre wishes to make Chiara Fumai’s exhibition as widely visible as possible so that those unable to travel could discover her work.
The exhibition, curated by Francesco Urbano Ragazzi and Milovan Farronato in collaboration with Andrea Bellini, will be presented until February 28, 2021 at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève.
Poems I Will Never Release is now accessible through a 360° reconstitution of the Centre, punctuated with informative texts and videos in relation to the work of Chiara Fumai.
To complement your virtual tour, we invite you to watch our introduction video: Chiara Fumai or a glossary of Women. Directed and narrated by Sofia Kouloukouri (artist and mediator at the Centre), this video dives into the feminine figures who marked history and inspired Chiara Fumai. Despite their strength and anger, these women have been either marginalized or forgotten. Among many others, the bearded woman Annie Jones, the “Circassian beauty” Zalumma Agra, the German terrorist Ulrike Meinhof, the illiterate medium Eusapia Palladino, or the feminist writer Carla Lonzi – all are present in the work of Fumai.
