Residency program for young curators 2010 Curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol

Palazzo Re Rebaudengo, Guarene d’Alba, Cuneo, Italy 8 May - 20 June , 2010

Persona in meno

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Fondazione Edoardo Garrone present Persona in meno from 8 May to 20 June at Palazzo Re Rebaudengo in Guarene d’Alba and from 18 September to 17 October at Palazzo Ducale in Genova. The exhibition includes works by Meris Angioletti, Nico Angiuli, Lupo Borgonovo, Chiara Camoni, Canecapovolto, Carloni & Franceschetti, Manuele Cerutti, Andrea Contin, Andrea De Stefani, Nicolò Degiorgis, Federico Del Vecchio, Rä di Martino, Chiara Fumai, Alessandro Gagliardo, Lorenzo Scotto di Luzio, Giuseppe Lana, Renato Leotta, Eva Marisaldi, Andrea Nacciarriti, Linda Fregni Nagler, Nicola Nunziata, Alberto Scodro, Marinella Senatore, Alberto Tadiello and Mauro Vignando. Persona in meno offers “portraiture without portraiture” as a paradoxical framework for considering the diverse works of more than twenty contemporary Italian artists— from an overarching parabola of basil to a bronze cast of the human soul. Punctuated by sound, as well as by moving images and moving objects, Palazzo Re Rebaudengo will be filled with works that elicit absent presences, apparitions, surrogates, private rituals, reappearances, and failed attempts at invisibility. Surveyed together, these works hover between what is visibly absent and absently visible. Persona in meno is curated by Angelique Campens (Belgium), Erica Cooke (USA) and Chris Fitzpatrick (USA), fellows of the fourth edition of the Young Curators’ Residency programme coordinated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol (Italy) and supported by the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Fondazione Edoardo Garrone with the support of the Compagnia di San Paolo.

She has written for various catalogue and magazines including Taschen’s Art Now Vol. 4, Abitare, Domus, Sculpture Journal and Aspect.
