EMILIO PRINI
Emilio Prini: A Visual Bibliography


A collection of visual incursions by Italian artist Emilio Prini (1943–2016) in dozens of exhibition catalogs and print publications over the course of five decades. Meticulously researched, and yet necessarily incomplete, this book is a glimpse into the subtlety with which Prini turned each engagement with the world of ideas into a joust for mastery over space, time, and form.

VV.AA.
What is going to happen is not the future, but what we are going to do


The title of this publication is based on a quote by Jorge Luis Borges, which invites us to be alert and adopt a hands-on approach with the present, suggesting the future is a concept that does not exist any longer, having arguably finished with Modernity in the 1950s.

This publication presents three essays with case studies sparking reflection on such ideas: Chus Martínez uses the recent ARCOMadrid as an example of what art fairs have become and what philosophical tools such event can provide. Elise Lammer reflects on the concept of human evolution, with an essay questioning the role of curiosity and empathy in the safekeeping of atomic waste. Finally, Rosa Lleó discusses experimental education, care and overlapping temporalities with Santiago Alba Rico, philosopher and scriptwriter of a now cult 80s Spanish TV program for children. Alongside the three texts are included images of works by nineteen artists featured in

GIUSEPPE GABELLONE
Giuseppe Gabellone


The catalog of Giuseppe Gabellone’s first solo show in Rome. An exhibition that can be described as a sort of “dramaturgy of space” with an ephemeral character—affected by the passing of time—and that sets a new milestone in the “personal history of space” that the artist has been narrating and constructing since the 1990s.

For Gabellone in fact each work, each exhibition is conceived as an experience which generates new ideas rather than achieving an ultimate goal, so that references to past exhibitions and anticipations with those in the future become key elements to interpret his aesthetic approach. In Rome, the artist decided to consider the rooms of the Fondazione Memmo as a single undivided and open area and then proceeded by subtraction. Like a sculptor who chooses to carve rather than modeling, he sculpted the space and removed elements, until it reached a certain essentiality, and then started working with the idea of emptiness. It is as if Gabellone’s exercises upon space, his sculptures and “small dramas” add each time a new thought concerning the very meaning—a primary and fundamental meaning—of our existence within space. In this case the silent and metaphysical space of Italian art.

ROBERTO TIMPERI
Àmor


Àmor is an exploration. Roberto Timperi’s gaze leads us into an uncanny underground world where we survive despite the curse that seems to have affected everything by now, and for good. A world where new forms of filterless beauty are possible, and every corruption is holy. Àmor is the livid portrait of a humanity raging and beating in the city’s deepest heart.

The first book by Roberto Timperi, who lives between Rome and Palermo, where he works at the Centro Internazionale di Fotografia,
