In a timeless quest for reconciliation with our primordial creative energy and consequent determination to forge new paths in our living, looking back to our origins may be the only way to read our present and lay the foundations for our future. As suggested by Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of TL magazine Lise Coirier, “Today we feel more than vulnerable, but we are probably also more committed to transforming our ways of living and envisioning the future.”
The program of three annual exhibitions TIMELESS ENCOUNTERS is grounded in this conceptual landscape and contemplates the perpetual cyclical movement of history and art history, bringing together a selection of contemporary artworks and archeological artifacts. The overall initiative opens to broad research beyond the classical, particularly the Etruscan world, triggering reflections about the potential connections between the past and the present in terms of art, aesthetic sensibility, and human feelings. Promoted by KALPA Galleries and Guarnacci Etruscan Museum, TIMELESS ENCOUNTERS was inaugurated with the exhibition AEVUM in the year of Volterra - First Tuscan City of Culture 2022.
While we are outlining the creative directions for the second exhibition, to be opened in Volterra in the forthcoming summer of 2023, we are enthusiastic about having the AEVUM exhibition featured in TL Magazine #38, curated by guest editors Lidewij Edelkoort and Philip Fimmano, and dedicated to ancestry and to the intricate cultural connections through different times.
