If I Was John Armleder (What a Curator Is Not Supposed to Do)

If I Was John Armleder (What a Curator Is Not Supposed to Do) was published on the occasion of the second edition of artgenéve 31/1-3/2/2013. The project, curated by Luca Cerizza, is a tribute to the Swiss artist and curator John Armleder, a celebration of the art of his mixing and mashing-up.

Being John Armleder means imagining what kind of exhibition he would curate today, when dealing with young artists from Italy and Switzerland. Being John Armleder also means to act in a way that is usually denied to curators. In this respect the project is an experiment: an impertinent act of freedom in arranging a number of different works in one installation.

The curator has invited the artists Andrea Sala and Tommaso Garner to conceive a display for the exhibition, whose participating artists are: Alessandro Agudio; Gianluca Belloni; Stephane Barbier Bouvet; Flora Klein; Frédéric Gabioud; Tommaso Garner; Dario Guccio; Thomas Koenig; Mario Milizia; Riccardo Previdi; Adele Röder; Alice Ronchi; Andrea Sala & Tommaso Garner; Vanessa Safavi; Davide Stucchi.
