Cod, Center for Openness and Dialogue

Differences, references, connections: the 10x12 cm works of over 3000 artists in an exhibition that aims to tear down walls and unite visions along the parallel 42 north.

A figurative tour around the world, along the parallel 42 north: this is the journey offered by “Parallel 42 – A Circle of Humanity“, the new exhibition from the Imago Mundi Foundation that has accepted the invitation of COD, The Center for Openness and Dialogue, housed in the prestigious seat of the Council of Ministers, in Tirana, Albania (11th November – 31st December 2021).

The idea for this exhibition was rooted in the global pandemic, a terrible and unexpected moment in time that led us to discover a shared destiny and a common awareness. As the arduous return to normality is underway, simmering, ever-latent questions resurface: the age of walls that had appeared behind us is forcefully returning to the scene and we are witnessing the construction of fences and barriers, many of which, in fact, in the countries intersected by the parallel 42. The exhibition extends an invitation to tear down these walls, both real and ideological, and recognize in their place a shared direction, that common thread that moves unseen and brings us closer.

This exhibition, which will be accompanied by a calendar of meetings with curators and artists, thus traces a circular path composed of humanity: men and women who figuratively embrace, shake hands and form a chain, or rather a mosaic, just like the works of the Imago Mundi Collection, symbolic pieces in the grandiose mosaic of the Art of Humanity.
