MagiC Carpets Landed in Kaunas

The international exhibition MagiC Carpets Landed is coming to Kaunas – European Capital of Culture 2022 from 5 November 2021 to 23 January 2022. This is the final event of the four-year project MagiC Carpets, co-financed by Creative Europe, designed to boost visibility for emerging artists throughout Europe. This journey around Europe, with its gaze set on the future, actively involved young audiences and local communities in the fifteen partner countries. 

The exhibition, presenting the results of the four-year “Creative Europe” platform “MagiC Carpets”, is curated by Benedetta Carpi de Resmini, professor, art critic, curator and art director of Latitudo Art Projects, based in Rome, Italy.

The exhibition is not just a display of artworks, it is an integrated exhibition that would like to rethink the idea of itself as a relational platform. The artworks become tools for shared actions, interpreting our contemporary society, enhancing the mutual understanding and shared responsibility while expanding its borders in different directions”, said the curator, who conceived and developed the title and concept for the platform. “Therefore, the exhibition won’t be a showcase of artworks but the format itself, which becomes a sort of Mutant Body. “MagiC Carpets Landed” will be enacting the ritualisation of the relational events, which is transforming itself in a living process, a mutant which creates a unique body with the visitor.
