Quartiere Fieristico di Bologna
We are pleased to invite you to the 41st edition of Artefiera, from Janaury 27th to 30th. We will be there with MLZ Art Dep, presenting a selection of photographs and sculptures from A Kind of Display. The gallery was selected for the Nueva Vista section, curated by Simone Frangi. Designed as a pilot edition (in a spirit of exploration) the section Nueva Vista lays the foundations for the development of a curatorial project within the fair context: a project that reflects on the intricate and controversial relationship between artistic research and the market, producing at the same time a precise critical look capable of transversally observing generational and geographical origins of artists and galleries involved. Nueva Vista is designed, in fact, in order to shed light on, within a commercial context, the balancing point between discourse and saleability of emerging artistic research, between a critical process and formalization, between planning commitment in social and political spheres and sustainability. Particular attention has been reserved, and will be reserved in future, to those galleries that investigate and reflect critically on that ideological cut-off point imposed between Western and non-Western artistic practices.
In addition to this, we are glad to announce that GENDA Magazine will present an exhibition of works from the latest issue released. We will talk about the magazine and contemporary photography on January 27th, at a panel moderated by curators Francesca Lazzarini and Carlo Sala.
