50/50 is a multimedia installation created for Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From, an exhibition produced by the Fondazione Imago Mundi (Treviso) and the Aga Khan Museum (Toronto). Curated by Marion Eele (Imago Mundi) and Marianne Fenton (the Aga Khan Museum), it brings together the works of a group of first, second and third generation artists.
With two versions, Italian and Canadian, 50/50 wants to bring the local reality into the exhibition.
How do they see their parents’ country of origin? What language do they speak at home? Do they prefer pizza, lasagna or biryani? Growing up between two cultures, which do they feel they belong to? How do they answer a difficult question?
Seventeen Italian young people and fourteen Canadians – the children of migrants and mixed couples – tell us about themselves and introduce us to a new generation of citizens: a generation that goes beyond appearances and names that are difficult to pronounce.
