The cross-disciplinary research project “Longevicity: Crossing Communities” on the future of long-lived cities, conducted between Milan and Tokyo and featuring the photographs by Laura Liverani, will be on display in the spaces of Scalo Lambrate and will host the last stage of the traveling photographic studio that portrays the seniors of Milan.
From 28 November 2021 to 6 January 2022
Scalo Lambrate, via Pietro Andrea Saccardo 12, Milan.
Inauguration on Sunday 28 November at 5pm.
Opening hours: Tuesday – Sunday 11: 00-19: 00.
The exhibition concludes the path of the “Longevicity” research project of the University of Milano-Bicocca, in partnership with the Polytechnic of Milan, the University of Tokyo and Auser Lombardia, and supported by CARIPLO Foundation. The curatorship of the exhibition is entrusted to Prospekt Photographers, and will be hosted in the exhibition spaces of Scalo Lambrate, under the patronage of the Municipality of Milan – Municipio 3 and the Italian Association for Artificial Intelligence (AIxIA).
The subjects of Laura Liverani’s images are the senior communities of Milan and Tokyo, the two cities most involved in the research, as well as among the metropolitan areas with the highest density of elderly residents. The photographs set in Tokyo portray a group of cheerleaders over 60 and elderly fans of pop fashion who frequent Sugamo, the neighborhood dedicated to them. The Milanese seniors are instead represented by a dissemination project created specifically on the premises of the research, which saw the active participation of the partner Auser Lombardia: “Longevicity Photo Studio”, a series of portraits made in a traveling photographic studio, inspired by the practices of vernacular photography.
The last scheduled stage of the traveling studio is Scalo Lambrate, where a set will be set up for those who want to pose during the exhibition.
