I SETTE MESSAGGERI

I SETTE MESSAGGERI, Marsèlleria, Milan

Seven Italian artists embody the seven characters of a story/exhibition embedded in the narrative cracks of the original story.

Project Partecipants: Paolo Canevari, Francesco Arena, Patrizio Di Massimo, Daniele Milvio, Andrea Sala, Francesco Simeti, Nico Vascellari

Curated by CURA

The Exhibition: July 5th – September 8th

GROUP SHOWS

DOUBLE LIFE in Human Resources, FRAC Lorraine, France

HUMAN RESOURCE is part of the group project “Labor at work” carried out by the three FRAC of the Grand Est region in France. An intersectional group exhibition that puts “invisible” workers in the spotlight: from house cleaners to interns, to artists and cultural actors. The projects of guest artists help to blend the question of work and artistic labor with essential reflections on well-being, strategies of survival, ethical modes of production, and inclusive perspectives conducive to rethinking labor. Olga Kisseleva’s work, Double Life, discusses the different ways in which artists attempt, through various means, to satisfy both their need to create as well as their basic needs by combining artistic practice and “subsistence” employment.

Project Partecipants: Olga Kisseleva, Ghada Amer, Béatrice Cussol, Décider entre hommes, Karl Holmqvist, Kapwani Kiwanga, Catherine Lescarbeau, Noémi McComber, Anne-Marie Proulx, Joshua Schwebel, Jo Spence, Pilvi Takala, Mierle Laderman Ukeles, Martine Viale
