It is sight which establishes where we are in our surroundings, says John Berger in Ways of Seeing. Based on these and other premises, the exhibition essays a series of themes rather like short stories, in an attempt to review the different approaches taken by the artists from the FRACS (Fonds Régionaux D’Art Contemporain) collections through their works. One conceptual nucleus from this selection examines transit and migration through the themes of identity, social tension, and gender. These themes are present throughout the entire exhibition which showcases points of view as rich as they are varied. Reflection about the materials and resources employed by these artists to present and represent such diverse realities also helps to enrich our own “ways of seeing”.
