"Closed for Opening" is the title of the new exhibition promoted at the Clocktower. The exhibition explores both visible and invisible activities produced over two years during our residency programs, focusing primarily on educational processes and social engagement. "Closed for Opening" also establishes connections between different spaces and our historical venue, creating a dialogue across various sites.

During the opening, visitors will have the opportunity to have a unique experience. The Clocktower will showcase works by Patrizia Emma Scialpi, Labuat Collective in collaboration with Gabriella Mastrangelo and Bruna Sigillo, and a 'parasite' co-created by a special team led by TOC and the University Federico II/DiARC in Naples. The exhibition will also be accompanied by an artist's book.
