Language is a Virus

The female voice of the Italian art in search of freedom during isolation

 25 May / 14 June 2020 –  open-air exhibition on kulturtavlorna curated by Adriana Rispoli 

LANGUAGE IS A VIRUS is an open-air exhibition curated by Adriana Rispoli for the Italian Cultural Institute in Stockholm during the Covid19 emergency. As a response to the suspension of all the activities, art pursues its continuous dialogue with life by experimenting new expressive formats that can be enjoyed by the public. 

LANGUAGE IS A VIRUS uses advertising posters as technique and Stockholm’s streets as exhibition space. Although Sweden decided not to adopt restrictions as in Italy, cultural places such as museums, galleries and theaters have been closed to the public. In this moment of forced isolation, the city offers a space for communication to five Italian female artists: Francesca Grilli, Loredana Longo, Marzia Migliora, Rosy Rox and Marinella Senatore
