Fabrica’s springtime starts with Out of Step, a project curated by Nico Vascellari, former Fabricante and today one of the most important artists of the international scene: a series of lectures and workshops with renowned names of that broad cultural world that encompasses art, design, cinema and underground culture, hosted at Fabrica.
Starting from March, Fabrica will entertain lectures by Carlos Casas, Spanish film director, Romeo Castellucci, Italian theatre director and scenographer, director of the Venice Theatre Biennale in 2005, and Lele Saveri, co-founder of 8-Ball Community, artist and activist based in Brooklyn, New York. Between June and September Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator, International Art (Film) of Tate Modern in London, previously curator of Hangar Bicocca in Milan, and Cecilia Alemani, director of the public art program of the High Line in New York and curator of the Italian Pavilion at the next Venice Biennale, will be lecturing at Fabrica.
As curator of this series of events, Fabrica relies on a very special friend, Nico Vascellari, who, starting from 23rd March, will be at Palais de Tokyo in Paris with Scholomance, an exhibition co-curated by Pier Paolo Pancotto and Vittoria Matarrese. After his scholarship at Fabrica at the end of the Nineties, Nico has started a successful artistic career that has made him one of the most famous artists of his generation and has allowed him to perform and exhibit his works in some of the most important institutions and locations worldwide, such as Vida Kuben in Umea (2017), Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester (2016), Villa Medici in Rome (2016), Estorick Collection in London (2016), National Gallery of Arts in Tirana (2015), Monitor in Rome (2014), Bugada&Cargnel in Paris (2012), Fondazione Remotti in Camogli (2011) and Macro in Rome (2010).
The series of events curated by Nico Vascellari opened in last February with a workshop by Bertjan Pot, a Dutch designer characterized by his very experimental approach and his research on light, techniques, textures, structures and colors. The workshop ended with an open lecture.
