Organizing Chaos

The international collective exhibition Organizing Chaos, on the initiative of Nartwork a.p.s., took place from 30 September to 7 October 2023 at the Fondazione Luciana Matalon.

On display are the works of 37 artists from 13 countries.  The initiative was part of the 19th edition of the Day of the Contemporary and has received the moral patronage of the Campania Region, the Lombardy Region, the Suor Orsola Benincasa University and the Alsob Association.

The group exhibition gives artists the space to express the chaos they have inside, a pure reflection of what is outside them and at the same time inside each viewer, they can mirror themselves in this irreducible nature to welcome and accept themselves as they are. Organizing does not mean simplifying or reducing, but finding similarities, connecting ends and mixing cores. Because Chaos must not be tamed, it must be given space, so that its vastness and beauty can be admired.

The exhibition catalogue, which includes critical contributions by art historians Gianpasquale Greco and Maria Aurelia Catalano Rossi Danielli, is available online, as are their video contributions and interviews with the artists on the association’s i youtube facebook and instagram channels.
