Teatrum Botanicum, PAV, 16-18 June

Teatrum Botanicum – Emerging Talents 2017
June 16-18, 2017
Opening: Friday, June 16th, 5 PM
PAV, Via Giordano Bruno 34, Turin

Artists: Agreements to Zinedine, Enrico Ascoli, Lia Cecchin, Gaetano Cunsolo, Cleo Fariselli, Matteo Gatti, Alessio Gianardi, Paolo Inverni, La Distrazione del Fagiano, Filippo Marzocchi, Mount Fog, Giovanni Oberti, Mauro Panichella, Gianandrea Poletta, Serena Porrati, Lavinia Raccanello, Giulio Saverio Rossi, Ruben Spini, The Cool Couple.

Talks agenda: Enrico Ascoli, Atelier A, Chan, Regine Débatty, Alessandra Franetovich, Paolo Inverni, Kabul Magazine, La Distrazione del Fagiano, Leandro Pisano.

On Friday, 16th June at 5pm PAV inaugurates Teatrum Botanicum – Emerging Talents 2017, an experimental space dedicated to emerging artists involved in the natural and ecological artistic investigation unique to the contemporary art centre.

For three days, the space will be dedicated not to a conventional exhibition, but to actual events: performative practices, projections, talks and performances-lectures, DJ and live music sets free from a precise curatorial intention, but determined to reveal a conceptual nucleus ex post. The plurality of questions arising through these interventions merge in singular, broad- spectrum question. Starting from the idea that the concept of “environment” can be difficult to articulate in a univocal definition (the generic idea of environment as “that which surrounds a given element” can be variously described by multiple fields, from biology to physics, from ecology to computer science), how can we relate to it, as artists in primis? And in doing so, what could be a personal definition of the term or a wider discourse arising from the idea of environment? Continue reading

POIUYT project launch, Galleria Michela Rizzo, Venice 11 May 2017

 

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.

SHORT CIRCUIT #3, OK Corral, Copenhagen

Exhibition opening – 05.05.2017, 5pm
Exhibition continues – 06 – 28.05.2017, Wednesdays to Saturdays, 1 – 5pm
Terminal 3 – OK Corral, Rolighedsvej 9, 1958 Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, Denmark

ARTISTS
Emily Mulenga, Juneau Projects and Antonio Roberts (Birmingham); The Cool Couple, Kensuke Koike and Ryts Monet (Venice); Honey Biba Beckerlee, Johan Knattrup Jensen and David Stjernholm (Copenhagen).

Short Circuit is an ambitious international touring group show devised by British Independent Curator, Aly Grimes, and consists of nine new media artists and collectives in an attempt to re-assess the archetypal framework of a travelling exhibition. It proposes a new experimental model of display realised in three different locations across Europe to include Birmingham, Venice and Copenhagen. The project’s structure aims to investigate new ways that exhibition spaces can present touring shows in the Digital Age and will manifest as a highly experimental research project susceptible to failure. It might glitch, trip, malfunction or ‘short circuit’. Read the full press release here.

18 marzo – 18 giugno 2017
MLZ Art Dep
via Galatti 14 Trieste

Inaugurazione: sabato 18 marzo, ore 18.30

POIUYT è una piattaforma di ricerca sulle immagini che si propone di diffondere un’attitudine critica verso questo linguaggio chiave del mondo contemporaneo, attraverso la riflessione, il confronto collettivo e la partecipazione.

Il progetto, supportato da MLZ Art Dep di Trieste, Galleria Michela Rizzo di Venezia e Metronom di Modena, prende il via con la mostra Punto Zero. Pratiche critiche nella fotografia contemporanea italiana, che inaugura nello spazio espositivo triestino il 18 marzo alle ore 18.30.

La mostra presenta il gruppo composto dalle curatrici Francesca Lazzarini e Gaia Tedone e gli artisti Alessandro Sambini, Discipula e The Cool Couple nel momento in cui i loro interessi si intrecciano e la collaborazione ha inizio. Provenienti dal mondo della fotografia ma accomunati da una propensione a espanderne i confini, hanno dato vita alla piattaforma spinti dalla necessità di avviare una riflessione comune sul ruolo preponderante delle immagini nella società in rete e sulla loro valenza politica.
