Exhibition open 5 December 2016 - 14 January 2017

The exhibition BEYOND BORDERS - Transnational Italy is one of the principal research outputs of the AHRC project TML Transnationalizing Modern Languages. Mobility, Identity and Translation in Modern Italian Cultures.
Beyond Borders. Transnational Italy displays both the processes and the results of the research in which TML has been engaged over the last three years, across different countries. The exhibition demonstrates how what we refer to as Italian language and Italian culture exceed geographical/territorial confines and operate through a constant process of rewriting and reworking of familiar ideas of tradition, nation and narration.

Beyond Borders also presents Italy is Out a photographic project by Mario Badagliacca, who has worked as artist in residence for the project, travelling to London, New York and Buenos Aires. Within the exhibition there are also other compositions that demonstrate the interest of TML for those artistic languages that encourage us to think of cultural identities in terms of the transnational. Lastly, Beyond Borders host the work of the artist Valentina Bonizzi whose work shares some of the perspectives on to which the work of TML opens.
