Palazzo delle esposizioni, Rome
Of Acrobats and Other Stories. Photographs from the Driving Energy Award is a compendium, a selection, of work from the Driving Energy Award 2022 – Contemporary Photography exhibition, supplemented on this occasion by an exploration of award winner Paolo Ventura and of the profoundly narrative nature of his work and his research.
The full exhibition, which was held at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni from 15 to 27 November 2022, showcased the work of the forty photographer finalists in the competition whose theme, Cameras on driving energy, was the artistic interpretation of the Azienda’s mission. The photographers acquainted us with their view of the theme by recounting themselves, their vision of the world and their feelings – an individuality that was accompanied by their past and their memories, because every work of art consists not only of technique and style but also of the artist’s individual and collective history.
From 20 December to 29 January the Palazzo delle Esposizioni’s Fountain Hall will once again be hosting the work of Paolo Ventura (Winner, Seniors), Gaia Renis (Winner, Young Photographers), Andrea Botto (work most voted by Terna staff), Mohamed Keita (Winner of the special mention Contemporary Normality) and Eva Frapiccini (Winner of the special mention Circularity. Courses and Recourses), in addition to the photographs of Fabio Barile, Alessandro Dandini, Leonardo Magrelli, Raffaela Mariniello, Daniele Molajoli, Luca Nostri, Margherita Nuti and Flavio Scollo.
