SPRINT Independent Publishers and Artists’ Books Salon, Milan


NERO is pleased to announce the fourth edition of SPRINT, an independent publishers and artists’ books salon conceived by the non-profit O’ associazione and curated by artist Dafne Boggeri. From Friday the 25th till Sunday the 27th of November 2016 at via Pastrengo 12 in Milan, visitors will have the opportunity to meet and engage with a range of international authors and publishers participating in the salon. A series of parallel events including talks, screenings, performances and exhibitions, are also scheduled to take place in via Pastrengo and in other locations around the city.

This new edition of SPRINT will open on Friday the 25th of November with the exhibition Billion Balances by the collective LGG$B, curated by special guest IDIOLETTA (Mattia Capelletti, Costanza Candeloro) at the space Agalma at via Confalonieri 36 from 6.30pm. Following an long inquiry into contemporary American poetry, the work of eleven authors collided with the visual and performative output of as many artists during Concerning Poetry and Art, a performative reading marathon on the night of 20th September at O’. At IDOLETTA’s SPRINT booth publications from American authors and artists rarely distributed in Italy will be available.

57 realities – both from Italy and an international panorama – will participate in this edition of SPRINT with special projects and new formats providing stimulus for three days of dialogue and exchange.

NERO will also participate with a range of old and new titles, some of which have only just been released such as: Salvo, the third volume of a series of books by NERO printed in Risograph in a small format, curated by Alessandro Cucchi; DR. PIRA L’almanacco dei fumetti della gleba, which brings together all the plates of the Fumetti della Gleba – much of it never appeared online – in one priceless volume, enriched with color inserts and a large section of new content, ranging from academic and critical contributions, to interviews, to cultural insights, to homages by other popular cartoonists; and Anton Bruhin, a catalog which, following the artist’s retrospective at Istituto Svizzero in Milan curated by Arthur Fink, Le caselle di Anton Bruhin (23 October – 12 December 2015), gathers works from different periods of the artist’s career, though giving particular prominence to his drawings in analog and digital form—the Pixel-Bildli and Hice for Weiss series, or his plastic mosaics.
