Art Exhibits

There are two art exhibits on in Molfetta's old town at the moment. The first is a collection of handmade nativity scenes. They are made from a wide variety of materials and in a wide variety of styles. Some are made by professionals, others by amatuers and some by children. The scene above is made in clay.

The other exhibit is called "Black Box: Look in the Hole." Its concept is of a world "enclosed in a box that is the container of all the behaviours, habits, values, excesses and relationships that life offers in relationship to the environment... The artists observe the contents of this box through a hole." Etcetera etcetera... Very dark, very disturbing.

I recommend the nativity scenes...
