Visit Sicily through the modernity of Giò Pomodoro and Jiménez Deredia, Gian Marco Montesano and Pino Pinelli’s figurative art. A pleasant and evocative itinerary in the footsteps of Myth, organised by Il Mito Contemporaneo, an International Sculpture and Painting Exhibition organized by the Regional Board for Tourism, Sport and Performance Art to promote the history and charm of some Sicily’s most beautiful and famous cities: Taormina, Palermo, Lipari and Trapani/Segesta. This international exhibition, now at its second edition (under the artistic direction of Massimiliano Simoni) is part of the prestigious programme Il Circuito del Mito.
Contemporary art transforms Sicily into a great open-air workshop. Archaeological sites, temples, ancient theatres, cathedrals, historical city centres and common spaces become exhibition venues. The red thread is the Myth in its most diverse and original articulations as they accompany the history and itinerary of mankind, from Hermes to the great protagonists of the 20th century, seen through the eyes of four contemporary artists of international renown who have revisited, re-modelled and shaped it throughout their work.
These four exhibitions are sure to attract many amateurs, enthusiasts and tourists, who will come from all over the world to discover, admire and explore the beauty of our land, disseminated with a variety of artworks – from monumental sculptures in white marble and bronze to figurative paintings, fibreglass and great oil canvasses.

TribeArt is a free magazine about contemporary art in Sicily and Italy. It started as a website in 1999 and became a magazine in 2003. This publication – also sent to subscribers all over Italy – has established itself as an authoritative voice in the island’s art work. It is a bit like Gallery Guide here in the US. Now it risks closing down. Advertising from galleries and local patrons was enough to cover the € 2,500 needed to publish each issue, but the current economic crisis has tightened the belt of most businesses.
To avoid this, 100 Sicilian artists have joined forces for the Artists for the Artists for TribeArt exhibition at Palazzo Platamone in Catania (Palazzo della Cultura) from April 14 through May 1. Over 100 artists are present at this event and artworks to benefit TribeArt start from € 300.
