From the curatorial text written by Giacinto di Pietrantonio:

It is only natural that by living in a world where virtuality has become crucial to our existence, the first thing we do when we have an idea is to find a reference, which means going on the internet and searching on Google for news or references to confirm our idea. If we search for “La rivoluzione siamo noi” on Google, we find 27.000.000 results in 0.47 seconds. A colossal number. Continue reading

Emozioni Mondiali, MLZ Art Dep, Trieste, June 1st – 21 September 2019

The Cool Couple. Emozioni Mondiali
A cura di Francesca Lazzarini

Opening: Saturday, June 1, 6.30 PM

Cosa hanno in comune il gioco del calcio e il mondo dell’arte? Attorno a questa domanda, il duo The Cool Couple ha sviluppato il progetto Emozioni Mondiali, in mostra dall’1 giugno al 21 settembre 2019 alla galleria MLZ Art Dep di Trieste.
Fulcro dell’installazione è una console che, attraverso una copia di Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 personalizzata dagli artisti, permette di giocare a calcio sfidandosi in una gara davvero particolare. Le venti squadre, tra cui è possibile scegliere, corrispondono infatti a periodi o movimenti della storia dell’arte, ma anche ad attuali importanti manifestazioni – dal Rinascimento a dOCUMENTA (13), passando per Impressionismo, Arte Povera e Post-Internet, solo per citarne alcuni -, mentre i calcatori rappresentano gli artisti che vi appartengono. Ed è così che si può decidere di scendere in campo nei panni di fuoriclasse come Caravaggio, Duchamp, Richter, o affidarsi alla prestanza di atleti più “giovani” come Wael Shawky, Jon Rafman, Zanele Muholi. O ancora brillare della luce di astri dello star system, come Cattelan e Warhol, o puntare sulla genialità di figure fuori dagli schemi, come Mladen Stilinović, Marcel Broodthaers e Santiago Sierra.

Exibart on paper #102 —> COVER!

We are really glad to share the new cover of Exibart on paper!
Issue 102 opens with a re-reading of Gesture, one of the most problematic photographs from Approximation to the West. It was printed in 2014 and, in the past four years, when the fascist empire stroke back, it lost four fingers – joking: it’s a quote of Maurizio Cattelan’s L.O.V.E. 🙂

Talking (About) Images, Kunsthalle Graz, May 29th – June 12th 2018

Talking (About) Images
Curated by Francesca Lazzarini and Marta Rovetta
May 29th to June 12th 2018
Opening: Tuesday, May 29th 2018, 6 PM

Kunsthalle Graz, Conrad von Hötzendorf Straße 42A, Graz, Austria

After its first stage at Galerija Kortil in Rijeka, the reflection on the role and power of images in contemporary society proposed by Talking (about) images continues in Graz, at the Kunsthalle, from May 29th to June 12th 2018.
The project, curated by Francesca Lazzarini and Marta Rovetta for Cultural Inventory, with the support of the Region of Styria, develops through four exhibitions and as many inaugural events with eight artists of various nationalities and different means of expression – The Cool Couple, Severin Hirsch, Kate Howlett-Jones, Neža Knez, Maryam Mohammadi, Nika Rukavina, Alessandro Sambini and Christoph Szalay -, exploring the relationship between images and the reality they represent, the mechanisms that regulate their production and diffusion, the ambiguities that they can generate, but also their potential as a universal and shared language.
In fact, unlike words, images do not require translations to be read by people in different part of the world, being apparently a limitless tool for global communication. Nevertheless, their interpretation is anything but objective: images are intrinsically ambiguous. Due to their power of persuasion, images play a key function in the capitalist and globalised system: they are vehicles for ideology and one of the main weapons in the struggle over an arena of strategic importance today, the collective imaginary.
So Talking (about) Images focuses on images as an autonomous language: as in the participatory project and related installation Imag(in)e Ka-mi- ze by Neža Knez, that employs images as a children’s mean to design a better future; the work Lemmigs by Severin Hirsch, that spurs for an independent use of images and texts conceived as equal symbols; Maryam Mohammadi’s Memories Icon, that explores how images shape personal memories as well as their unconscious visual cultural effects. At the same time, the show reflects on the potentialities and limits of this language, or on its interaction with other means of expression. The work Everyday by The Cool Couple assembles meme GIFs underlying the influence on our existences of “secondary visuality”. In Kate Howlett-Jones’s Pocket Dictionary of the world’s Most Iconic Photographs every image-entry is defined by a poetic text resulting from mixed commentaries

Riparte la stagione espositiva del Museo di Fotografia Contemporanea, nella sede storica di Villa Ghirlanda a Cinisello Balsamo, con la mostra STATI DI TENSIONE | Percorsi nelle collezioni. Il curatore Carlo Sala è stato invitato a “rileggere” i diversi fondi fotografici che costituiscono il patrimonio del Museo, creando un percorso espositivo di oltre ottanta lavori di autori italiani e stranieri e due interventi site-specific di giovani artisti contemporanei.

La scelta di individuare un giovane curatore e di ospitare, in occasione della mostra, le opere di giovani artisti dà continuità a una politica avviata lo scorso anno e che a partire dal 2018 diventerà una consuetudine nella programmazione del Museo. Puntare sui giovani attraverso incontri, mostre e acquisizioni permette di riallacciare un dialogo con i fotografi e gli operatori, a cui il Museo si rivolge come luogo aperto di discussione e sperimentazione.
