Teatro delle Esposizioni #7 – In uno spazio e in un tempo senza titolo
In uno spazio e in un tempo senza titolo (“In an untitled space and time”) is the exhibition curated by NERO which marks the seventh edition of Teatro delle Esposizioni. The exhibition – which recalls the form of a book – sheds light on the research of a group of artists, designers, writers, filmmakers, musicians, performers, philosophers and researchers resident in Villa Medici for a year. As such, the multiformat exhibition is intended as a path to be read, recounting the research of the artists in residence. Exhibited here are not so much works of art, but rather “tests,” points of tension between the suspended and intimate dimension that characterizes the time and space of the French Academy as it is lived by the artists in residence, and the manifest aspect of public space that runs through their experience and defines the institution. Teatro delle Esposizioni is the locus for this encounter – a way to explore its meaning, discover its limits, and establish new readings of the works.
Teatro delle Esposizioni #7 – In uno spazio e tempo senza titolo will open on Thursday 30 June 2016 at 7pm. The exhibition, accessible to the public until 14 August in the Grandes Galeries, presents works by: Laurent Bazin (theater director), Johan Brunel (designer), Julie Cheminaud (philosopher of the arts), Oscar-Coop Phane (writer), Fabrice Denys – Fantazio (composer and performer), Jackson Fourgeaud – Jackson (composer), Anne-Violaine Houcke (film historian), Frédéric Malek & Mathieu Kendrick – Lek & Sowat (visual artists), Adina Mocanu & Alexandra Sand (performers and visual artists), Philippe Petit (screenwriter and director), Anne-Margot Ramstein (illustrator), Sébastien Roux (composer), and Kenji Sakai (composer). With a special contribution by Popay (visual artist).
At the opening event, from 7pm, Laurent Bazin, Fabrice Denys and the Kenji Sakai will present three special performances.
Teatro delle Esposizioni #7 presents the projects of artists and researchers currently in residence at the French Academy in Rome and represents an opportunity for interaction between the artists, the city and its inhabitants. Following the exhibition at Villa Medici, some of the works on display will be presented in September in Paris, as part of the festival Viva Villa.
