HAPPY TOGETHER! Francesco Jodice & The Cool Couple Online performance for Milano Digital Week and Triennale Milano Saturday, May30t, 5PM
HAPPY TOGETHER! is a conversation on the relation between physical and digital space among visual artists Francesco Jodice and The Cool Couple.
What kind of spaces do we decide to inhabit and how does this period of forced isolation and restricted social interaction affect our individual perception of places? In the near future, the question will probably concern the dimension we choose for our life.
POIUYT. The project Venice, Thursday 11th May 2017 at 12pm Galleria Michela Rizzo Venice, Ex Birreria, Giudecca 800/Q (Vaporetto Stop Palanca) www.galleriamichelarizzo.net
The 11th of May at 12pm, during an event at Michela Rizzo Gallery, POIUYT will launch its website and the first of a series of publications linked to its activities. POIUYT is a platform for image-based research which aims at spreading a critical attitude towards this key language within the contemporary world through reflection, collective exchange and participation.
POIUYT, which is supported by MLZ Art Dep, Trieste, Michela Rizzo Gallery, Venice and Metronom, Modena, is a collective project developed by curators Francesca Lazzarini and Gaia Tedone together with artists Alessandro Sambini, Discipula and The Cool Couple. The first exhibition Point Zero. Critical practices in contemporary Italian photography, currently on view in the exhibition space in Trieste until the 18th of June 2017, introduces the founding group at the moment when their interests intertwine and their collaboration begins. Although they all come from a background in photography, they share an inclination to push its boundaries. The platform is a response to the urge of starting a collective reflection on the dominant role of images in our networked society and on their political implications.
