Docking places. For a possible "isolario"

With its third issue, co-curated by the independent group Urban Gorillas, from Cyprus, Garibaldi continues to sail the ocean and docks at a new destination: the island. Topos of independence, the Island is investigated both as a physical place and as a symbolic construction. A limit and a potentiality at the same time, the notion of insularity – as if it were a matryoshka of realities – results from the dialogue between different requests which sometimes clash with one another, giving birth to new forms of independence. Treading new paths – from Sicily to Cyprus, from Israel to the Mediterranean up to imaginary places – through architecture, visual art and literature, this time Garibaldi traces a possible isolario.

curated by Simone Ciglia, Elena Motisi, Urban Gorillas
