Via Angelo Masina, 5
We are proud to invite you to the opening of the exhibition Hungry for Death that NERO and DEPART Foundation present this thursday at American Accademy in Rome. Here are some brilliant thoughts by Mike Kelley on the period of transition from progressive rock to punk rock.
DEPART Foundation and NERO proudly present Hungry for Death, an exhibition the imaginary of the band Destroy All Monsters, a Michigan collective consisting of Mike Kelley, Cary Loren, Niagara, and Jim Shaw, among others. The exhibition is curated by James Hoff and Cary Loren.
By presenting the work of a collective which in its members included two of the most prominent representatives of the contemporary californian art scene – Mike Kelley and Jim Shaw – Hungry for Death acts as a prelude to the next major exhibition produced by DEPART Foundation featuring the Los Angeles art scene: titled California Dreaming, the show will be curated by Michael Ned Holte e Aram Moshayed and will open in Rome during the spring 2011.
Some time ago we spoke about Matteo Nasini’s resonant installations. Rarely we see things like this and it’s the same for the video here below. He wrote about it: “In the italian countryside a flock of sheep are taken in hostage and hypnotized by a hostile frequency, but an aeolian infiltrated resonator, with the help of the wind, will try to release them”.
Caosempatia.blogspot.com is his blog. You can find other aeolian resonators and maybe things will seem more clear.

There are many supernatural connections that tie us to this exhibition that we just can’t avoid talking about it. If you are all about the informal things, tomorrow there is the pre party of the event. Here below you can find all the info. And from here you can see a preview of the last issue of Nazi Knife.
Curated by Valerio Mattioli and Massimiliano Bomba.The French publication NAZI KNIFE represents one of the key names of the outsider art of the past decade. Partly a fanzine and partly an artits graphbook, the ‘creature’ of Jonas Delaborde e Hendrik Hegray has published the best of the american and european dessin contemporain: around the Paris based ‘zine condensed a network of artists and illustrators ranging from Mat Brinkman to Shoboshobo, from Mike Diana to Leif Goldberg, from Christopher Forgues to Stephane Prigent; optical abstractions, crooked pen sketches, found photographs, naif recollections and childish Do It Yourself, the pages of NAZI KNIFE represent a manifesto of an extremely active and branched scene, with a geography of names from Paris to New York, from Antwerp to Helsinki, from London to Copenhagen.

The end could have no end. Christian Annyas has seen a lot of movies over the years, and to prove he has sat through at least the first ten minutes of them he started making screenshots of the titles. Then his computer crashed and he almost lost them all. To save them for future generations he created this little website. His words. (lmg)
