Gibellina Photoroad is a unique and unusual event, the first and unparalleled open air and site-specific festival in Italy, and one of the few in the world. Large-format prints, outdoor exhibitions, projections and installations, thought to dialogue with the urban space of Gibellina, town without any kind of visual and light pollution in which the vision of the exhibitions is not disturbed by the urban chaos.
IV EDITION OPENING 28–30.07.2023
Three hundred years ago, Johann Sebastian Bach wrote The Well-Tempered Clavier (1722), a work that signaled the birth of modern music. The 24 preludes and fugues, one composed in every key, create an ordered system of the endless possible harmonic combinations. Bach’s so-called tonal system is closed, hierarchical, and yet forms the basis of all musical thought, in every genre from Baroque to hip-hop. But rules are there to be broken.
