'The Legend of a Castle'
Dates: January 10th – February 3rd, 2017
Opening: Tuesday, January 10th, 2017
Legends and ballads exist everywhere. Sometimes they are very similar in many countries.
Castles play a big part in the whole heritage of legends. One can hardly find a country without a castle, a fortress, fortified walls or bunkers. All because of wars that organized the lives of cities and citizens for centuries. Now we look at the walls of castles and try to understand their history.
Legends help us to encounter these histories, and art symbolizes these encounters.
FONDACIONI KALO, an Albanian foundation that promotes art, exhibits artworks from the collection of GALERIAKALO to explore the existence of relationship between legends and art. The exhibition displays around 30 artworks, by artists from Shkoder, about the city of the castle about which this legend is told.
