A Room with a View

“A Room with a View” is an editorial initiative by Lightbox which aims to illuminate the positive and creative potential of time spent in isolation. Borrowing its title from the novel “A Room with a View” by Edward Morgan Forster, the project stimulates us to undertake an imaginary journey within and outside the artists’ space, to explore their views and perspective on the future from their window. We invited both Italian and international artists to share with us their experience of isolation during Covid-19. The resulting series of letters were published every week from April 8th onward on myartguides.com  exactly as we received them. This provided the opportunity to discover artists in a more intimate dimension, away from the spotlight of art events and inside their houses. At the end of the year, we felt the need to collect these contributions into the namesake book, to leave a small trace of this historic moment, a hint of what we lived through and how we reacted. The twenty artists who joined our initiative include Giorgia Severi, Matilde Sambo, Christian Fogarolli, Stefano Cagol, Ignazio Mortellaro, Giovanni Ozzola, Masbedo, Jitish Kallat, Mathilde Rosier and many more.
