The photo exhibition The photo exhibition

Mu Mac

Eight photographers were commissioned to interpret the FAEMA brand around the world and to celebrate the global presence and appreciation of the great Italian espresso tradition. And so began a dialogue between the sounds and the atmospheres of bars in cities like New York, Sydney, Stockholm, London, Shanghai, Rome and Milan, nowpresented through eight highly personal styles and languages for “Express your art”, the touchstone of the new FAEMA mood, transformed by this exhibition into an expression of pure photographic art.

Opening: from May 31 2016 to April 30 2017: from Tuesday to Friday 10.30/17.00 | Booking required: mumac@gruppocimbali.com (except on public holidays). | For special opens or events, please visit mumac.it

MAURIZIO Galimberti
deconstructed the new Faema E71 into one of his famous Dadaist mosaics. Using his inseparable Polaroid, it is as if he sees objects and volumes in a brand new way. He divides them up, noticing the noises and movements they make, and by doing so he restores the objects to us with new meanings.

Beatrice Speranza

embroidered herworks, combining her sense of composition with the artistic application of a needle and thread. Hers are intuitions translated into delicate red marks in strategic positions, almost as if to draw our eyes towards things fundamental to our emotions.

Alfredo Bini
reinterpreted the frenetic New York lifestyle, contrasting its chaotic exteriors with an interior - a bar - made up of silent, meditative pauses.

Francesco Di Maio
played with digital and analogue technology to give a value to time, while also reinterpreting tradition with a masterly play of analogue photography and film, transforming them into unique works.

Sam Harris
looked out over the infinite oceans surrounding Australia to turn it into a backdrop for almost dreamlike places, giving us some universal moments. In his intimate style he portrays personal family moments, recounting them in the books he sells all over the world. He has let himself be inspired by the colours and sensations that every location arouses in him, transporting us to these places too.

Giulio Di Meo
toured the peninsula, recounting his experience through his many stops, from north to south. He does the same in his reports from all over the world, with his black and white shots packed with details and expectations, focusing on people, gestures and the Italians’ favourite habit: drinking coffee at the bar.
