The international exhibit 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 title and concept for the MagiC Carpets platform came from an idea of the curator, Benedetta Carpi De Resmini, art critic, curator and art director of Latitudo Art Projects. The exhibition will present the work of 57 European artists who, over the four years of the project, provided specific artistic interpretations of the residence locations in different countries.
In Kaunas, each artist will provide reflections on pertinent topics such as marginalization, crossing borders, nationalism, and migration. The common thread connecting the various sections the curator organised the exhibit into, however, is really the social energy that brings out movements of change within communities.
