Young Curators Residency Programme 2013 Curated by Stefano Collicelli Cagol

Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin 8 May - 15 September 2013

The 338 Hour Cineclub

The Sandretto Re Rebaudengo Foundation presents the exhibition The 338 Hour Cineclub, final exhibition of the seventh edition of the Young Curators Residency Programme. This exhibition focuses on Italian artists who work with film and video in a myriad of forms. Respecting the individual practices of each selected artist, this exhibition deliberately places emphasis on the shared medium of film and avoids any further thematic grouping. This approach responds to the remarkable quality of research and collective commitment to film practices that is evidenced in the work of the selected artists, whose works are addressing diverse issues ranging from the language of pure cinema to politics.

All works will be exhibited on a single screen housed in a cinema pavilion within the gallery. Aiming to make an object of the cinema within the space and to create optimum cinematic viewing conditions, the structure will be designed by The Institute of Friends, a group of artists and designers based in Bolzano, in collaboration with architect Quirin Prünter.
The 338 Hour Cineclub addresses the timeframe of the exhibition, the evolving programme not only developing daily, but throughout the 338 public hours of the project. Echoing the different rhythms of the traditional exhibition, this format encourages the audience to return throughout its full length, allowing for a comprehensive selection of each artist’s work to be viewed.

Six different film programmes are presented during the four-month run of the Cineclub. Firstly, responding to two-hour window of the event, the opening programme acts as a taster, setting a precedent for the unfolding exhibition by presenting a short film by each artist. The main body of the exhibition then comprises of four programmes focusing on the work of three of four artists, each corresponding to the daily opening hours of the gallery and repeated for three weeks. During the first two weeks oh the 55th Venice Biennial, the Cineclub again shows the works of every participating artist, focusing on short films. As such, each day opens with short films, building up to full lenght features. One of the Cineclub’s aims is to recognise the differences present amongst this divergent selection of film and video. By the very nature of the unifying single screen format however, the exhibition simultaneously presents a timely opportunity for an examination of the use of cinematic techniques in contemporary practice. The dialogue between these film works invites consideration of the use of filmic conventions by artists whereby duration, narrative, script, image production and set design are repeatedly revisited.
Returning throughout the duration of the exhibition. The 338 Hour Cineclub members are offered the opportunity to view 75 film and video works by Italian artists, their collective running time totalling 25 hours, each screened in a specialised space conceived singularly for their viewing over the 338 hours of the exhibition.
