This is a project of contemporary art installations designed for the Sassi of Matera, which are located within the spaces that were once the ancient neighborhoods, and are now hotels throughout the city. The “Matera Alberga” project aims to reflect on the relationship between contemporary art and everyday life. The goal is to bring the old inhabitants closer to places that were no longer accessible so as to be a stimulus for change and to create a moment of welcoming, encountering and cohabitation – values that have not ceased to be an essential part of Matera’s identity from the earliest rock civilizations to today.
Works of art will also be the pretext for organizing meetings and workshops to discuss and raise awareness about the relationship between art and everyday life.
The installations will be accessible to the public even after the year 2019.
