Luca Curci – Can you talk about your personal experience in Venice? What did you think about the whole organization of the event, the artists’ selection, the communication management and opening nights?

Rodrigo Albornoz – Unfortunately I didn’t have personal experience in Venice. Anyway the organization of the event was good, basically for the short time period between the deadlines and the opening event. I like that the artists’ selection was of an international level. I would have like to be there for the opening to meet the organization, curators and another artists.

L. C.  – What do you think about the collaboration between It’s LIQUID and Ca’ Zanardi/Venice Art House?

R. A. – I think the place Ca’ Zanardi is a good place for an Art exhibition and LIQUID is a good opportunity for artists, but I don’t know so much about the collaboration between them.

L. C. – Can you talk about the artwork you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

R. A.  – One of the artworks I presented in Venice is my own Self-portrait and the second work is a portrait of a Zen nun, both of them are videos. I use to work with identities within socio-cultural contrast. The theme of the festival is Self, so is exactly connected to my subject. I use to make portraits of identity with moving image and translated in my own visual language.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

R. A. – I am working now with the portrait of an immigrant. In one hand is personal because I am one of them and in another hand is social because it is what Europe is living at this moment with immigrants coming from countries in conflict.

L. C. – What is art for you?

R. A. – Art is for me a way of living in constant connection with our common source of inspiration, which is for me nothing external but rather internal to myself.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo and It’s LIQUID organizations? Do you think they can represent an opportunity for artists?

R. A. – I think is a great opportunity to artists and public to share experiences. I have the idea that art is not something created by the artist and send it to a network, but it is rather the interaction between the art and the public, where the observer is a participator who gives meaning to the work. At the same time this meaning is in state of flux and transformation. So, to have a place and the facilitators to make an exhibition is very important for this exchange between the art and the public. Thanks for the invitation to participate on this event, and hope to have some other exhibitions with ArtExpo and LIQUID.

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more


INTERVIEW: MELANIE MOLLO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

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.
