Thursday drinks + Chiara Barraco's Art Exhibition Opening

Creative Thinkers meet and greet our new and old members in a chilled environment - there will be beers!

This is also a special evening because we are welcoming Chiara Barraco, our latest Artist exhibiting her photography in the space. 

About her photography: "People are the most fascinating subject to me. I love to catch the fleeting, spontaneous moments - and the best way to do this is to get as close as possible to the scene, the people, and the moment, while remaining invisible as an observer. My greatest skill is to allow my subjects to feel comfortable, natural, and relaxed - allowing me to capture the moment in its purest form. My style is documentary (I studied photojournalism in Rome) and I apply this same intimate yet indiscernible point of view to my subjects to create the most intimate, funny, natural and honest pictures I can. ‚Äč"

Chiara will be exposing her work called Mathab, as the Iranian girl they depict - this work shows the two daily realities, Rome and Tehran. Mahtab shows us both realities: on one side, the aseptic offices of the university, studying at her friends' homes, the nights out; on the other side, the return to her family, the hours in the car searching for streets, feeling like a tourist in her own city, and again the nights out sleeping at her friends' homes. Two realities, the Roman and the Iranian, that you might expect to be very different, full of different scenaries and lifestyles. You imagine Tehran with exotic landscapes, Persian-inspired decor, and women in chador or veiled, in contrast to Rome's short skirts, ancient architecture and western houses. On the contrary - the two worlds are mixed and confused, to the point that it is difficult to comprehend the border, especially inside the home; east and west, different clothing, routines and lifestyles become impossible to separate. 

If you are intesrested in photography you cannot miss the exhibit and meet Chiara  on the 15th of November, as she will also talk to those who attend about the basis of photography plus share with us her personal experience in the matter. A must-come relaxed event surrounded by beautiful and inspiring photograpy.
