The event was curated by Arch. Luca Curci (Founder of LUCA CURCI ARCHITECTS, International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID Group). The festival’s program included exhibitions, video art screenings, movies’ projections, live performances and meetings with artists involved.

HIDDEN ROOMS – IDENTITIES . CITIES . MEMORIES festival was focused on the revelation of the inner facets of our identities, on the disclosure of the hidden shapes of our being. The concept was divided into 3 sections:

HIDDEN IDENTITIES focused on the closed rooms we have inside. We usually wear temporary identities that reflect environment, societies, places. The exhibition aims to enlighten these rooms, to describe them, to create a new catalogue of human hidden identities.

HIDDEN CITIES was about the underground lifestyles that run on a parallel level of our ordinary life. Everyday behaviours are the actual reflection of cities we have created and that have developed a personal identity. This new city character becomes the new order that modifies our everyday life.

HIDDEN MEMORIES talked about the invisible common ground that unifies all humans. The event wanted to represent through video art and performance this hidden line that connects all peoples, religions and cultures.

Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi is a residential palace dating back to the 16th century which, over the centuries, has been added on to by various noble Venetian families and is one of the most evocative and beautiful palaces in the city of Venice; the Serenissima. Sumptuous and possessing particular charm, Ca’ Zanardi is located in a most peaceful setting and has its own delightful private garden as well as a magnificent terrace full of sun and colour. Ca’ Zanardi is located close to the Ca’ D’Oro, the splendid 15th century gothic palace along the Grand Canal.  It is located off the main tourist drag but is still easily reachable by foot, after a two minute walk from the Ca’ D’Oro water bus stop, or by boat using the palazzo’s private pier positioned along the fetching Santa Caterina canal. The refined elegance of the palazzo’s halls and common areas and the delicacy of its original 16th century furnishings create a fascinating setting.

BOCHNER BOETTI FONTANA

Art | September 23, 2020

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.
