Recent Performances and Exhibitions
Hermann Nitsch

We attended Nitsch's new symphony performance, '158.aktion', at the Nitsch Museum in Naples. The visually stunning 'aktion' accompanied the symphony composed by the artist for the occasion and performed by the Scarlatti Orchestra under the direction of Andrea Cusumano.
Our founder Piero Tomassoni was interviewed on the performance and its significance for a film produced by the Nitsch Museum and Fondazione Morra, including interviews with the artist and people who have worked with him throughout the years.

We attended several exhibition openings as soon as they started taking place again, amongst these: Claude Lévêque's Aube Bleue at Chateau La Coste near Aix-en-Provence, France (pictured right); Beverly Pepper's sculpture park in Todi, Umbria; Kendell Geers' solo show at M77 gallery in Milan, curated by Danilo Eccher (below, left); and Nicole Coson representing the RCA at Saatchi Gallery's London Grads Now exhibition (below, right, with our editor Tamsin Golding-Yee). Email us for more details and information on these artists' works.
Studio Visits
Marinella Senatore

We visited Senatore's studio in Rome, where she shared with us her plans for several upcoming international exhibitions, from the Kunstmuseum Basel to Biennials in Bangkok and Sri Lanka.

Born in 1977, her practice is characterised by performance and participation, and is articulated through a variety of media including drawing, collages, and light installations. 
Email us for more information on Senatore and her work.
Ivan Theimer and David Finkbeiner 

Piero and Nico met up in Tuscany in July to visit the studios of two artist friends.

Theimer's monumental bronze public sculptures adorn major metropolitan centres across Europe: obelisks, turtles, and intricately fabricated bronze branches, his reinterpretation of classical motifs gives fresh life to often overlooked sculptural themes from antiquity. 

Finkbeiner has spent decades fine-tuning his practice in Italy after leaving New York, where he used to exhibit in the 1970s. His paintings shed a poetic light on historically significant ruins and domestic spaces.
Claudio Verna

We were lucky to have the opportunity to visit and work with Verna on multiple occasions over the summer.

Beginning to paint in the late 1950s, Verna brought back a nationwide 'return to painting' in Italy, when many others had been looking to alternative media.
Giuseppe Stampone

We had the pleasure of visiting the Italian artist in his studio in Abruzzo, set up after he left his main studio in Brussels during the lockdown. 

Renowned for his highly detailed ball-point pen drawings, Stampone engages with various forms of 'high' and popular culture, in order to criticise and illuminate issues of the contemporary age.
Workshop at Castello di Rivoli in memory of Germano Celant
Piero was at Castello di Rivoli, Turin, in July and September for a two-week workshop on contemporary art archives and catalogues raisonnés.

The 8 participants (art historians, curators, and researchers selected from a pool of 400 candidates), were invited to learn from leading experts and museum directors such as Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev (pictured), Maddalena Disch, Neil Printz, Jorg Schellmann, Bruno Corà, Antonella Soldaini, Glenn Phillips, and Agata Boetti.
