In Conversation with Dina Nayeri

Event

Inventing Truth with Words and Lines

Whether in art or literature, what does it mean to tell the truth, or a version of the truth? And what might it mean to invent the truth in the service of a higher truth? Looking to Matteo Pericoli’s Windows On Elsewhere: 60 Refugees, 60 Views, a project with a collection of 60 window view drawings by Pericoli depicting the present window views of 60 persons who were forced to flee their countries, as well as looking to Dina Nayeri’s book, The Ungrateful Refugee, we will explore the role of invention (or “artful fudging” as Pericoli put it) in creation.

Bill Shipsey from Art for Amnesty and Alice McCrum from the American Library in Paris will moderate the conversation.

Camila Raznovich intervista Matteo Pericoli durante la puntata di Kilimangiaro (Rai 3) andata in onda lo scorso 22 Agosto.

Si parla di Finestre sull’altrove: 60 vedute per 60 rifugiati, il libro pubblicato di recente da Il Saggiatore, e di vari lavori di Matteo che, a partire dai disegni-rotoli dello skyline di New York e Londra, lo hanno portato a concentrarsi per anni a osservare, disegnare e raccontare le vedute dalle finestre.
