The exhibition Visual Diary at the Galleria d'Arte Moderna di Roma Capitale is a real visual journey, in the form of a diary, built through the photos and the video of Liana Miuccio in dialogue with the written word of Jhumpa Lahiri. The exhibition therefore presents itself as a linguistic and visual exchange between photography, video and writing based on common interests and sensitivities.
In her works, the artist tries to represent the sense of identity and of the place where one lives one's daily life, through the signs and gestures of the contemporary world, creating a Visual Diary. The exhibition includes her photographs, one of her films, books and other objects, together with some texts by the American writer of Indian origins Jhumpa Lahiri, former Pulitzer Prize winner in 1999. Both in fact, linked by a friendship born in Rome, the city where they are currently living, have found that their artistic works of photography and writing are focused on the same themes: migration, memory, identity and daily life.
Liana Miuccio, who grew up in New York and has lived in Rome for twenty years, teaches photography at Cornell University, Temple University and St. Stephen's School in Rome. In 2022 she was chosen as Visiting Artist at the American Academy of Rome; she has also received many awards for his photography and video, including from the New York Foundation for the Arts and the MacArthur Foundation Arts Organization in Residence Program. His photographs have been published in different publications including the New York Times, the Financial Times, Vogue, the Boston Globe, the Globe and Mail, Corriere della Sera, Espresso and Internazionale.
The exhibition, curated by Sarra Brill and Jennifer Pastore, is promoted by Roma Culture, the Capitoline Superintendency for Cultural Heritage, with the sponsorship of the American Academy in Rome and Temple University Rome.
