    UNE SAISON EN ENFER

    Strolling about in a twenty-first century shopping mall, we might wonder when and where such graves of the spirit first came into being. The answer to that question is a fairly tangible reality, one that we can experience in person, if we are willing to discover what is left of the Paris passages. (more...)

    IL CANGIANTE

    In 1986 Corrado Levi curated one of the most influential Italian exhibitions of the last thirty years: Il Cangiante. It was a seminal event for many reasons: the juxtaposition of the artists, the exhibition design, the critical writing, the revaluation of underappreciated figures. Levi set up a confrontation between the youngest artists (such as Bruno Zanichelli) and the most famous artists of the period (such as Francesco Clemente).  (more...)

V.A.
There is no place like home


There is no place like home documents the eponymous, self-managed exhibition project that took place in Rome in an abandoned building on the Aurelia Antica in September 2014. A collective of twenty-nine artists lived in and transformed the building over the course of 72 hours. Here, between the site-specific works, there have alternated events, performances, and unexpected encounters.

Thus conceived, the artistic action emerges as a force that acts in space but, above all, in time: a site that never ceases to be under construction, a subversive act against the exhibition canons of art. Without walls and without doors, with only one supporting structure, this hybrid place remains open to any form of “meeting,” metaphor for a project that will build over time.

Odio gli indifferenti is the catalogue of the namesake exhibition of Giuseppe Stampone at the Istituto Nazionale per la Grafica di Roma (11 October 2014 – 22 February 2015), curated by Raffaele Gavarro and Antonella Renzitti.
