Between March and June 2019, Carlo Gabriele Tribbioli invited a number of artists to join him and each develop an artistic project in the city of Sulaymaniyah (Slemani, in Kurdish), in the region of Iraqi Kurdistan. These invitations gave rise to a series of artists’ residencies and long-distance collaboration projects, leading to the need to relate to the territory. Indeed, a territory which welcomed and hosted the artists and their projects throughout this experience, on an everyday level, one that unfolds despite the critical aspects that affect the area and the objective difficulty in reaching it. The book A Season in Slemani brings together the outcomes of this programme and presents a selection of photographic and documentary materials which tell and contextualise the underlying processes. The volume also features a text by Ilaria Gianni (independent curator and writer) and a chronology of the area compiled by Camilla Insom (researcher in Iranian Studies, La Sapienza University, Rome).
