Press release

Transatlantico, Italian word for a transatlantic ocean liner, communicates the nature of the exhibition curated by Edoardo Monti: a voyage across the ocean, with works that come from all over the world to be reunited inside Mana Contemporary, in Jersey City. A cultural bridge, connecting people and minds in a similar way to what has been built through more than three years of activity of Palazzo Monti - a cultural center and artist residency based in Brescia, Italy.

Monti’s curatorial concept is translated into the physical layout of more than 120 artworks in the show through an imaginary line that will run across the space, indicating the common element shared by each artist: their residency experience in the Palazzo, and their devotion to creativity and experimentation. The imaginary line serves as a starting point from which artworks are hung towards the ceiling and the floor, allowing each artist to express their practice with a variety of sizes, shapes and media.
