Carmen Belmonte
Censorship, Iconoclasm, Preservation. The multiple Lives of Fascist-era Monuments and Works of Art
Monuments and works of art realized under the regime still pervade the Italian public space. They raise crucial scholarly questions with regards to issues of agency, reception, preservation and conservation strategies. Through some case studies, Carmen Belmonte will analyze the dynamics of postwar censorship and iconoclasm against images related to Fascist propaganda, as well as the subsequent preservation of Fascist-era cultural heritage. She will explore the ways in which the presence of such cases of controversial heritage might be negotiated within contemporary Italy.

Carmen Belmonte is the Italian Fellow in Modern Italian Studies and a postdoctoral fellow at the Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max-Planck-Institut fur Kunstgeschichte in Rome.

Karyn Olivier
Invisibility, mutability and the reimagining of spaces
Karyn Olivier’s talk will focus on her public and interactive artworks. She will discuss her manipulation and rearticulation of everyday objects and spaces in various sites including billboards, parks, grocery stores and sidewalks.

Karyn Olivier is the Nancy B. Negley Rome Prize Fellow in Visual Arts and associate professor and program head for sculpture at Temple University’s Tyler School of Art.

The event will be held in English. Watch Karyn Olivier's shoptalk livestreamed at https://livestream.com/aarome.

Conversations/Conversazioni

Wangechi Mutu, con Anne Palopoli e Peter Benson Miller - The Body and the Road to Justice

  • Mercoledì, 5 Dicembre 2018 - 7:00pm
MAXXI
Rome

L’evento è parte della serie Nuove ricerche sulle arti e sulle discipline umanistiche: il corpo.

Nell’ambito della serie di appuntamenti promossi dall’American Academy in Rome dedicati a esplorare il tema del corpo nell’arte e nella società, dall’antichità ai nostri giorni, l’artista internazionale Wangechi Mutu parlerà del suo lavoro in una conversazione con Anne Palopoli, curatrice presso il MAXXI e Peter Benson Miller, Arts Director dell’American Academy.

Nell’immaginario di Mutu, il corpo è uno spazio controverso e un terreno di esplorazione per ripensare le relazioni tra il potere dell’uomo e il mondo naturale. Utilizzando diversi media, come pittura, collage, scultura, performance e video, Mutu indaga temi come la rappresentazione di sé, il concetto di genere, i traumi culturali e i dissesti ambientali. Il suo linguaggio visivo è arricchito dall’utilizzo sperimentale di materiali non ortodossi, come il the e la terra vulcanica del Kenya, gemme e semi.

Mutu è stata protagonista di mostre personali presso importanti istituzioni internazionali come il Deutsche Guggenheim Museum di Berlino, il Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, la Staatliche Kunsthalle di Baden Baden, il Museum of Contemporary Art di Sydney, The Contemporary Austin in Texas, il Brooklyn Museum di New York e il Nasher Museum of Art di Durham, North Carolina. E’ stata invitata alla 56° Biennale Arte di Venezia, All the World’s Futures, nel 2015, e alla Dak’Art Biennial nel 2014. Più recentemente ha partecipato alla mostra del MAXXI Road to Justice, a cura di Anne Palopoli. Mutu vive tra New York e Nairobi, Kenya.

Mutu è attualmente Roy Lichtenstein Artist in Residence all’American Academy in Rome.

L’evento si terrà in lingua inglese.

Conversations/Conversazioni

Imagining Matera

  • Mercoledì, 12 Dicembre 2018 - 6:30pm
Italian Cultural Institute
New York

Imagining Matera
Wednesday, December 12, 2018, 6:30 PM
Italian Cultural Institute
686 Park Avenue, New York, NY

Imaginging Matera will be a roundtable discussion held in conjunction with the exhibition Matera Imagined/Matera Immaginata, which opens on November 13 at the Italian Cultural Institute in New York. The program will feature one artist whose work is on view in the exhibition, along with three scholars in different fields whose work frames Matera’s unique landscape and history. The discussion will focus on the relationship between photography and place, considering how images shape images of landscapes, how those images determine the course of modernity, how myth and history coalesce or diverge through photographs, and how Matera and the Italian landscape highlight these relationships.
