Exhibition Announcement: Displaced Present Joseph Akel, Venice

In the past, displaced have curated shows in Milan, as well as other venues in Venice


on 15 march 2008 at 19.00 the work of joseph akel

Displaced is composed of curators diana cordoba and claire shea. It was born out of a desire to work together to exhibit the work of contemporary artists whom we know and whose work we respect.

The name displaced refers to two things. It alludes to the fact that we are both émigrés in a foreign country and that we do not have a gallery space out of which we operate. Rather, we find a particular space for each exhibition. Depending upon the artist's practice, we either challenge the artist to develop work particular to the space or select works to feature.

Opening on March 15, 2008, the exhibition of Akel's work will feature 15 photographs from two series of Akel's work, American Magic and Dread and Nocturne, which make up a larger body of work entitled Twilight Years. In this series, Akel investigates notions of temporality and human nature through his exploration of the American West and now, Venice.

we sincerely look forward to your presence at spiazzi. castello 3865. venezia, italia
