"Looking Beyond," free visit to the Nairobi Museum on the 31st

IIC initiative for exhibition of satellite images

28-03-2023 by redazione

These days at the National Museum of Kenya, in the "Creativity Gallery" space, the Italian exhibition "Looking Beyond," forty satellite images chosen by curator and photographer Filippo Maggia and promoted by Farnesina in collaboration with the Italian Space Agency and Telespazio/e-GEOS, is on view.

For Friday, March 31, the Italian Cultural Institute in Nairobi has organized from 6 to 7:30 p.m. a free visit together with director Elena Gallenca and her staff (all other days it is still possible to visit the exhibition, paying the regular museum entrance fee). Refreshments will be provided at the end of the visit. In order to attend the event on Friday, March 31, it is necessary to register by tomorrow, Wednesday, March 29, by sending a confirmation email to iicnairobi@esteri.it.

"Looking Beyond" is an exhibition of images that, in addition to talking about our planet, its heritage to protect and natural and induced disasters, proposes an artistic vision of the shots taken from the satellite, whereby some known and lesser known areas of the planet, become abstract and surrealist works of art. The project, already presented at the National Museum in Malindi last month, also offers an opportunity to reflect on the contribution of satellite technologies to Earth observation, the promotion of sustainable development and the protection of natural and cultural heritage.
