Due South,” coming soon to The Delaware Contemporary, is the second project in a quartet of island-based explorations curated by Marianne Bernstein to spark an international exchange between American and international artists. Focused on the island of Sicily, “Due South” will be on view in the main three galleries at The Delaware Contemporary from Jan. 28–April 30. It explores issues inherent to the unique position of Sicily: migration, climate change, agriculture and more. Conceived of as an interdisciplinary conversation, the exhibition will feature painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video, printmaking, ceramics, text-based works and collaborative community projects by leading regional and international artists.

“Due South” will provide an unprecedented opportunity to see major new works by leading regional artists. Jane Irish—a painter, ceramicist and Joan Mitchell Foundation grantee—was invited into various palazzos throughout Sicily to paint on site. David Kessler, a 2015 Pew Fellow, is making a new video work about the medieval hilltop town Tusa. Andrea Modica—acclaimed photographer, Drexel professor and former Guggenheim Fellow—is exhibiting work from Sicily and working collaboratively with Francesco Nonino on a project photographing plants from a radioactive military crash site in Lentini (Catania). As a part of this exhibition, Italian artist Flavio Favelli will be in residence while he creates a site-specific work.
