Artissima 2018

“Artissima Experimental Academy” is now open: it is a new educational project, developed in collaboration with COMBO. The project will be open in Turin, Milan, Bologna and Venice in 2019. Artissima Experimental Academy will live longer than the 4 days of the event and it will propose, during the year, some events for art professionals.

The first event of “Artissima Experimental Academy” will take place in the fair from 1st to 4th November 2018 with the project DAF Struttura.

DAF Struttura is a free and experimental school, an environment full of lights and sounds, designed and built by Jan St. Werner, composer and co-founder, in 1993, of the electronic music group Mouse On Mars, in collaboration with the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg, where he teaches Interactive Media / Dynamic Acoustic Research. DAF Struttura, run by Zasha Colah, will be a stage, a sound performance, a space of work, the right place for intellectual thoughts, an archive, a radio station and a gallery and it will host international speakers, researchers, artists, and, above all, 25 students.

This traveling school-facility, modular and experimental and made of corrugated cardboard, will travel on the road till Turin and will be built again at Artissima by the students of the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg. Together with Jan St. Werner there will be two others teachers, Yael Solomonowitz and Marc Matter. There will also be some robotic and light installations, created by Moritz Simon Geist e Matthias Singer.

The teachers and artists collective will explore idiosyncratic methods of production, examine the basic principles of the acusmatic music and of the experimental research and invent new strategies for the presentation and the perception of the sound.

Jan St Werner is an artist and compositor of electronic music in Berlin. Better known as part of his electronic duo Mouse on Mars, Werner has also begun a career as a soloist, publishing, among others, Lithops, Noisemashinetapes e Neuter River. In 2013, St. Werner published Blaze Color Burn, the first of a series of experimental recordings with Fiepblatter and the Thrill Jockey Records, in Chicago. He cooperated with orchestras and groups such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Musikfabrik Köln, the Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop and the Ensemble neoN of Norway. During the 2000s, he has been artistic director of the Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music (STEIM) in Amsterdam. Werner has also been guest lecturer at the department ACT of Arts Culture and Technology of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology MIT. He is currently teacher of Interactive Media/ Dynamic Acoustic Research at the Academy of Fine Arts of Nuremberg and he has directed a new field of studies on the future of record production for the New York University of Berlin.

That of Turin is the leading University of the project CAPuS – Conservation of Art in Public Spaces, which involves 7 universities, 4 companies, 1 association, 1 museum, 1 research centre and 2 municipalities throughout Europe. Totally, there are 16 European partners, located in Italy, Germany, Croatia, Poland and Spain. A further one is located in the USA.

The project, developed within Erasmus+ “Knowledge alliances”, has been financed by the European Commission and aims at establishing a preservative protocol for urban art, a precious way for regenerating the city. Somewhere in between the spontaneity and the commissioning, urban artworks are becoming more and more important on city walls. However, because of their nature and of the prolonged exposure to adverse weather conditions, this artworks are more likely to deteriorate and their preservation causes some problems.

With the collaboration of companies, universities, art restorers and artist, CaPus will map the deterioration, identifying the suitable products and preservation methods (like the creation of digital archives). Moreover, in order to define a shared operational protocol, CaPus will afect also the courses on offer at University: it will be proposed a lesson plan to be inserted into the academic records and an international master on the subject. In addition, students will be actively involved in the activities of the project, thanks to internships in the partner companies.

Partners of the project will actively analyse alteration processes, define preservation strategies and deal with project communication. Also the Centro Conservazione e Restauro La Venaria Reale (centre for the preservation and the restoration La Venaria Reale) will play an important role, particularly as to regards the analytical part of characterisation of the materials of the artworks, offering a leading contribution to the creation of a training module on the preservation of the urban art. The Italian group is completed by the University of Parma, which will supervise the quality, and Medhiartis ,a communication agency which will curating the visual identity and manage the socials. The Municipality of Reggio Emilia and the Municipality of Turin are associated partners and will cooperate on identification and enhancement of the artworks chosen for the experimentation.

“The CaPus project” says Dominique Scalarone, professor of Materials for preservation and Restoration at the University of Turin and project manager of the whole project “is a unique occasion for facing in an organic, multidisciplinary and innovative way the open question about the preservation of the urban art. Starting with the creation of an international and heterogeneous by vocation partnership, totally in line with the Europeans guidelines in the field of higher education, the project aims at enhancing the cooperation between Universities and private companies in order to develop new knowledge, working opportunities and innovative products. It also aims at raising the awareness of Institutions and general public about the need of enhancing and preserving public artworks. The analysis of the materials which the artists use to realise their works, the study on their deterioration, the characterisation of the products which can be used for their restoration will be important phases of the project, functional to the achievement of the two main goals, that is the definition of a preservation protocol specific for urban artworks and the realisation of a multidisciplinary and innovative training module for university students and art restorers, also available on a digital platform”

Ilaria Saccani, president of CESMAR7, says that :”the ambition of the project is to create permanent alliances within the partnership, in order to combine the experience of art restorers and analytical groups with the knowledge of constituent materials and restoring products of companies involved in the definition of an operational innovative protocol for the preservation of urban art. This will converge into the activation of a training module in the Universities and Academy involved in the project. In this way, the contents and the project methods will enrich and innovate the courses on offer, making them more updated on the new needs of the preservation. Ultimately, the CaPus projects strives for raising the awareness of the institution, but above all of general public, about the sensitive issue of the preservation of urban art: the project will start with the involvement of the artists, in order to clear the borders of the ethic of preservation of an art which in lots of its various forms has an evanescent nature as intrinsic feature”.

Locandina della mostra Cura - Racconti fotografici sulla città della salute

Fabriano has been appointed UNESCO Creative City, and in 2019 will host the 13th Annual Meeting of the Creative Cities Network, a network that brings together Bologna, Pesaro, Rome, Carrara, Milan, Turin, Parma and Alba. The project has been approved by the UNESCO, and it aims at creating connections and interchange between the cities that have made the cultural creativity a cornerstone of their economic development.

The Network operates on seven different cultural areas: Crafts, Arts and Folklore, Cinema, Design, Gastronomy, Literature, Media Arts and Music. Precisely on these topics, cities will be able to debate, share their own experiences and enhance their cultural products increasing their diffusion on the national and international markets.

In anticipation of the Annual Meeting UNESCO Creative Cities, in 2019, the Aristide Merloni Foundation, in cooperation with the Comune di Fabriano, has established a competition announcement for the design of the official logotype (coloured, free technique) for the event.

The logotype will be present on the notice, signage, editorial production, website and any other material that has the communicative intentions proposed in it.

It is possible to send your own project until 6th April 2018.

The regulation and more information are available on the website of the event, in the page dedicated to the details of the announcement.

Bruno Fert - fotografia di un interno di tenda di migrante

The exhibition of Bruno FertPercorsi interiori. Fotografie e raccolta di testimonianze”, will be inaugurated today, Thursday, 15th February, at 6pm, at the Alliance française of Turin (Via Saluzzo 60). Fert, French photojournalist, will give a voice to the stories of men and women who are fleeing from poverty and war with a photographic project achieved in collaboration with Medici Senza Frontiere. Fert tells the stories of migrants, takes photos of the interior of the tents and temporary facilities in which they found shelter. They are portraits of men and women, of the places in which they live: dwellings furnished with few things brought to the camps in Greece and France as memories of previous lives.

I decided to meet migrants that cross the Mediterranean to seek refuge in Europe, photographing the interiors of their refuges in villages – or “jungles” – both in France and in Greece, and I collected their stories thanks to the collaboration with MSF”, explains Fert. “Dwell is something that we all have in common. Temporary shelters of migrants reflect their personalities in the same way our houses reflect us. I would like people to relate to this common denominator, to enter the house of someone else observing where he/she lives”.

François Dumont, manager of Communication and Advocacy of MSF, will participate at the inauguration to present the commitment of the organization on the topic of migration and to share the testimonies of the people that were helped thorough the migratory route, from the countries of origin to the European borders. The Group of Turin of Medici Senza Frontiere will also offer the try of the viewers at 360 degrees of the Milionidipassi Experience, experience of the exhausting trips of migrants on land and sea, and of the terrible conditions of the refugee camps.

“ We want to put people in the shoes of people that are forced to hit the road, often putting their own life at risk, with the omen that this experience will involve people in helping vulnerable people that we meet every day even in our cities”, explains François Dumont of MSF.

The exhibition can be visited from 15th to 22nd February with the following timetables:

  • Monday-Thursday: 12am – 8pm
  • Friday: 12am- 6pm
  • Saturday: 9am – 1pm
