The Museum of Contemporary Photography recently added Italian filmmaker Daria Menozzi to the long list of international artists participating in its upcoming group exhibition, Survival Techniques.
Featuring more than a dozen artists from across the globe, Survival Techniques explores displacement, exile and the struggle to exist in a nation of constant turmoil. The exhibition, which runs April 12 through July 1, showcases people’s experiences living through political uncertainty and social unrest, while commenting on the one thing shared by them all: survival.
On Wednesday, April 11 – the day before Survival Techniques opens – the MoCP will host a screening of Menozzi’s film, Before Ai Weiwei. This film provides an intimate look into the life of Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei, as he estranges himself from the country where he lives and positions himself as a global force within the art world. It will be shown at 6 p.m. at 623 S. Wabash Ave.
