SISLEJ XHAFA, SOLO EXHIBITION AT ZAC, PALERMO, ITALY

Opening on 17 March, Infermeria is a major solo exhibition of new work by Sislej Xhafa at Zona Arti Contemporanee (ZAC).

Known for works which challenge cultural stereotypes, preconceived prejudices and institutional structures, Xhafa investigates social, economic and political realities. Curated by Paola Nicita, the exhibition will be housed in the Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa - an industrial complex dating to the early 20th century. The site-specific work responds to a building that used to produce Belle Epoque furniture before being repurposed to construct military vehicles during the war.

Sislej Xhafa will represent the Republic of Kosovo at the Venice Biennale this May.

Infermeria is at Cantieri Culturali alla Zisa - Zona Arti Contemporanee (ZAC), Palermo from 17 March to 15 April 15 2017.
