An exhibition of contemporary art entitled "Contemporary Art in the Sacristy" is on display until January 7 at the sacristy of the church of S. Pietro di Erice and represents one of the cultural events that the city of Erice has also prepared on the occasion of Christmas, the first of the restart after the pandemic.
The works on display, coming from the Salerniana collection at Palazzo della Vicaria in Trapani and selected by Michele Cossyro, artistic director of La Salerniana since 1979, are by contemporary artists including Abbozzo, Accardi, Aller, Asdrubali, Baruchello, Bendini, Bentivoglio, Boille, Botta, Capaccio, Conte, Esposito, Galliani, Genovese, Lim, Longaretti, Mambor, Mauri, Montessori, Patella, Pignotti, Pisani, Querci, Raspi, Romanelli, Romualdi, Salvadori, Salvi, Salvia, Sanfilippo, Sanna, Scordia and Tadin.
As we said, the exhibition was set up in the church of St. Peter, where all these contemporary works are exhibited in the valuable sacristy, which are well intertwined with the past that these places precisely testify. We are obviously talking about a building that was recently largely recovered, but was built in the second half of the fourteenth century and rebuilt in 1745 based on a project by the architect G. B. Amico.
Among old furnishings, paintings and sacred objects of the 1700s, the visitor will be able to admire this fascinating contrast between ancient and modern.
The direction of the exhibition has deliberately reduced the captions describing the works to a minimum to allow visitors to go beyond what is seen with the eyes.
For those interested in this period until January 7, the exhibition can be visited every day from 11 to 14 and from 17 to 22 always with a green pass.
