I am very excited to announce that together with Line Ellegard, I am co-organizing the third edition of The Curatorial Thing, which is an intensive summer program for curatorial research that will happen Aug 22-29 at SixtyEight Art Institute in Copenhagen. The program is free and the call for participants is now open, all welcome!

The Curatorial Thing
22 – 29 August 2019
Open Call

SixtyEight Art Institute is welcoming emerging curators, researchers, artists and other practitioners to take part in our annual free intensive summer program. Using the Nordic notion of a ‘thing’ – an old concept for a meeting place, an assembly of the community, or what can be defined as the precursor of the modern term ‘parliament’ – SixtyEight Art Institute is inviting you to join us for a series of workshops and lectures led by some of the most interesting artistic and intellectual profiles operating in the Nordic region.

Thematic Frame:
Communities of Practice in Precarious Times

The third edition of The Curatorial Thing intends to open up questions and debates about the challenges and rewards of working together through communities of practice and curatorial collectivity, in a time that is increasingly marred by social, political, economic and ecological precariousness.

Portfolio Dialogue
A truthful exchange of goals, plans and ideas is a precious part of the artistic practice and needs the right frame to flourish. Therefore I am delighted to join Portfolio Dialogue, an online platform established to allow a deep, focussed and effective meeting between artists and reviewers.
Happening online and all year round, Portfolio Dialogue makes the portfolio review format independent from specificity of time and space, overrides its often awkward speed-date configuration and brings it closer to a real dialogue between the two parts.
Looking forward to start this new adventure! 🦋

Ferox – The Forgotten Archives 1976-2010
Ferox – The Forgotten Archives 1976-2010 is a fictional project by Swiss photographer and graphic designer Nicolas Polli and co-published by Ciao Press and Skinnerboox. With this archive of photographs, Nicolas tries to push the boundaries between reality and fiction, exploring the kind of information we require to trust an image.
I wrote a text for the book under the pseudonym of John Fergusson. You can read the text here.

Mercoledì 3 maggio, alle 19.00 all’interno della mostra ANTOLOGIA, allestita negli spazi di Metronom fino al 3 giugno 2017, Paola Paleari e Giorgio di Noto saranno a disposizione del pubblico per una sessione di Question & Answer, in ideale approfondimento su alcune tematiche che accomunano gli autori di più giovane generazione, partendo da alcuni punti nodali del testo critico di Paleari ‘Mondo come oggetto’, realizzato come una riflessione trasversale su alcune opere di Annabel Elgar, Christto&Andrew e The Cool Couple.

YET #10 is ready to pre-order!
I am happy to announce that the pre-order for issue #10 is now open.
This upcoming issue focuses on a “hot” topic, that is, photography education today.
What does learning and teaching photography at a professional level mean, today?
This is the main (uncomfortable) question we started from. We decided not to look for the answers ourselves, but to let the schools tell us their reasons why.
After a screening of educational programmes scattered all over the world, we gave carte blanche to a shortlist of 11 schools, asking each of them to accept the challenge of self-presenting their programmes through their own distinctive language and approach.
The result is a rich, diverse, manifold issue, where different written and visual languages pass each other the baton and where the topic is subdivided into sundry explorations of the mechanisms of vision, perception, communication, composition and narration. It is not an easy issue, but hopefully a useful one.
Support YET, pre-order your copy here!
