From december 2018 to march 2019 Areacreativa42 hosted four short lectures with the members of its Young Curators Project.
These lectures were ment to invite getting audience introduced to art through short thematic meetings curated and conducted by young students, scholars and artists. A simple and essential path to approach the world of contemporary art and beyond, discovering the artists’ methods and processes, their thinking and the different ways of expressing it. The first step towards a deep understanding of artistic languages and their meanings.
#episode 1: Still life, strong life
Introduction to the theme of nature through the centuries with the young curator Andre Fenu.
#episode 2: Hidden in plain sight. The secret meaning of images
A path to discover in wich way artists play with symbols and allegories to hide messages inside their works with the young curator Giulia Cordò.
#episode 3: Prodigium. Hideous in arts
Demons, monster, strange creatures and death allegories can be found spread all over across art’s history.
We joined the young curator Miriam Bruno in discovering their roots and symbolic use.
#episode 4: meeting Yoon Il Kwon
Printing workshop (with our staff member Marco Spampinato) and interview (curated by the young curator Giorgio Bena) with the winner artist of “The solo project” by Chiara Williams Contemporary (London Art Fair 2019).
