‚ÄúNYSFERATU: SYMPHONY OF A CENTURY‚ÄĚ BY ANDREA MASTROVITO FILM SCREENING AND LIVE CONCERTS

The italian artist Andrea Mastrovito reinterpreted in his hand-animeted film the 1922 Friedrich W. Murnau’s classic movie Nosferatu, giving new life and meaning to the vampire myth created by Bram Stocker in his Dracula.

Mastrovito presents the vampire as the outsider prototype, combining the vampire image to the migrant one. The film shows us the many obstacles the migrants deal with on daily basis, such as economic exploitation, discrimination, and xenophobia in the country they moved to.

The film has an original sountrack  composed by Simone Giuliani, in select locations it will be played live by professional musicians, adding improvisation to the film score.

The initiative, organized by MoreArt, promotes the collaboration between artists and communities, inspiring a broader discourse on cultural and social issues through provocative public art.

"HERMANN NITSCH. CELEBRATING LIFE" OPENS AT THE IAGA GALLERY IN ROMANIA

IAGA Contemporary Art Gallery has the great pleasure of hosting the exhibition Hermann Nitsch Celebrating life, from 30th April to 18th June, curated by Beatrice Benedetti, Georgeta Olimpia Bera e Walter Bonomi.  This exhibition shows the beginnings of “performance art” of Hermann Nitsch, in fact his artwork is based on the confrontation between artist and material, entailing the live presence of the human figure, scarified animals and verdant elements. Nitsch developed these artistic means of exteriorization in the form of a dynamic opus magnum carried out under the name “Orgien Mysterien Theater” (OMT).

The showing hosted by the Gallery IAGA is based on a curatorial work focusing on a video/photographic retrospective of the Gesamtkunstwerk and a joined presentation of Hermann Nitsch’s most emblematic work, documented by the artist as a testimony of the period in which these actions took place.

The present showing at Cluj is the result of a tight and lingering collaboration between the IAGA Contemporary Art Gallery, BoxArt Gallery of Verona (Italy) and the artist’s Atelier in Prinzendorf, Austria. The exhibition inaugurates on 30 April am 18:00.

MEETING WITH HERMANN NITSCH AT THE UNIVERSITY OF BOLOGNA

The meeting is part of the series of events organized by Artefiera from 2011, with the aim to invoke the major protagonists of the international held weeks between 1977 and 1982 at the Galleria Comunale d'Arte moderna, then located at the Fairgrounds, and financed for the most part by Ente Fiere.

These famous events were by the proposer, ably assisted by Francesca Abbar and Roberto Daolio, unfortunately both missing, and therefore these manifestations become also a fitting tribute to their memory.The main character whom the next giveaway is the viennese Hermann Nitsch, the celebrated founder of the Orgien-und-Misterien Theater, consisting of great performances aimed at staging of "mysteries", but designed with an irreverent, to obtain some sort of "black masses", designed to achieve fair to bring to light the negative and destructive impulses lie dormant in each of us even Freudian teaching, in order to achieve a catharsis, a release from the negative and harmful obsessions differently. In particular, the very first edition of the Settimane, besides going famous to Marina and Ulay, involved naked in the doorway of the Gallery of modern art, was marked by huge performance organized by Nitsch in the former Church of Santa Lucia, at that time in a state of great ruin.

As mentioned in previous occasions, also in this case there will be an intense dialogue, with the help of a translator, the germanist of the our University Roberto Rizzo, between the artist and the curator Barilli aimed at rebuilding, with the help of audiovisual material, the main steps of the career of Nitsch.
The auditorium Enzo Biagi limits may not be exceeded by 200 seats, which will be accessed by invitation, in part distributed by the University's public relations Office, in part by the Department of arts.

Free admission by invitation until availability

EMILIO ISGRO' FOR THE FIRST TIME IN UNITED KINGDOM AT THE TORNABUONI ART LONDON

Tornabuoni Art London is pleased to announce the first UK retrospective of Italian artist Emilio Isgrò from 8th of Frebraury 2017. One of the great innovators of the artistic language in post-war Italy, Isgrò offers a different perspective on the country’s artistic panorama to what has been shown in the UK before. Tornabuoni is taking this opportunity to broaden its focus beyond the Spatialist and Arte Povera avant-gardes and consider the role of one of the main proponents of Visual Poetry and precursor of international conceptual art since the early 1960s. 

As befits the London chapter of this retrospective travelling between Milan, London and Paris, the exhibition will open with the Encyclopaedia Britannica, whose 24 volumes Isgrò deleted in 1969. This installation, monumental by its size and undertaking, was presented by Tornabuoni at Art Basel Unlimited 2016 and epitomises the artist’s trademark deletion technique, with which he painstakingly strikes through text and image by hand with India ink. While his work evokes historic iconoclastic practices and more recent acts of censorship and misinformation, Isgrò nonetheless regards his deletions as a creative endeavour rather than a destructive one.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a new scholarly catalogue published by Forma Edizioni and edited by Marco Bazzini, with texts by Luca Massimo Barbero, Andrea Bellini, Michele Bonuomo, Mathieu Copeland and the artist himself. The volume will retrace Isgrò’s artistic career and provide a deeper understanding of the themes that lie at the core of the artist’s practice.

DALLAS BIENNIAL WILL FEATURE HERMANN NITSCH AND TERESA MARGOLLES

The Dallas Biennial 2016 (DB16) has officially announced that for its third installment, instead of staging a city-wide, months-long survey of regional and international artists (which it did last time), it will exclusively host and present the work of Hermann Nitsch and Teresa Margolles, starting December 31 at The Box Company in Dallas.

Nitsch, 78, is of course a co-founder of the brutal and controversial 1960s movement we know and love as Viennese Actionism. Margolles is a Mexican conceptual and performance artist and founder of the artist collective SEMEFO; her work deals with social violence and death. Featuring these two international heavy hitters is a fresh move for DB16, whose founders are Dallas-based artists and curators Michael Mazurek and Jesse Morgan Barnett.

DB16 writes that it will “present one of the most  comprehensive exhibitions of Nitsch’s art to be seen in the U.S,” and will include his paintings, videos, and much documentation of his 147 performances to date. For DB16, Margolles will “present site-specific, object-based and performative works which furthers her research in victimology, socioeconomics and class distinctions.” Both artists will be in attendance on December 31.

LIU BOLIN AT THE MUSEUM OF THE WALLS FOR THE EXHIBITION "SUBLIMINA"

The Curatorial Collective composed by students of the sixth edition of the Luiss Master of Art Master's degree, under the guidance of Achille Bonito Oliva (Scientific Director of the Master), presents the exhibition SUBLIMINA.
The exhibition, organized and supported by the LUISS Creative Business Center and promoted by Rome City Council, Department of cultural growth-Capital of cultural heritage Monuments, takes place from 15 December to 10 January, in the charming rooms of the Museum of the walls at Porta San Sebastiano.
The project aims to give visual form to a reflection on the concept of border, at a time in history when the question of invalicabilità and redefinition of old and new geopolitical borders is manifested in all its problems.
 
The randomness of the borders, marks from man to create a demarcation between the self and the other, are investigated by the curatorial collective through the works of fifteen artists active on the national and international scene. The current theme of the border is dealt with not only in its geopolitical component, but also philosophical and anthropological.

A fluid path through the spaces of ancient walls between sound and video installations, photos, paintings and sculptures by Liu Bolin, Silvia Camporesi, Loris Cecchini, Luca di Luzio, Kaarina Kaikkonen, Henry LIM, Eva Marisaldi, Marzia Migliora, flame Montezemolo, Ariel Orozco, Alessandro Piangiamore, Pietro Ruffo, The Cool Couple, Glenn Weyant, Marco Maria Zanin.

LUISS Master of Art students have taken care of all the planning and organizational processes of the exhibition, from concept to choice of artists, exhibition designs, catalogue, communication.
