Nomas Foundation
Reading Room #9 | SOTTOBOSCO

Thursday April 21, from h 5,00 to 9,00 pm
Friday April 22, from 2,30 to 6,00 pm

Nomas Foundation’s Reading Room this year focuses its attention on initiatives established by artists for artists. The entire month of April is dedicated to projects initiated in Italy, that represent a practical answer to the working necessity of every artist: dialogue, research, documentation, distribution, residency projects, legal advice.
Sottobosco is a collective of artists and curators, born in 2009 that aims at the creation of an independent platform for cultural planning. A network for connecting, sharing and archiving that develops specific tools of formation, information and visibility for young artists, based on the open content criteria. ShowDesk is a project that aims at offering young artists the opportunity of showing their work. The  meetings take place each time in a different Italian city (until today in Genoa, Milan and Venice). Sottobosco will invite selected artists of the contemporary scene of Rome to give a public presentation of their work. They are also invited to leave their material on view  and to become part of Sottobosco artists’s archive.

On 21 and 22 April present their artwork:
Luana Perilli, Valerio Ricci, Mauro Romito, Mariagrazia Pontorno, Alessandra Rosini, Vincenzo Rulli, Paride Petrei, Angela Zurlo, Marta Roberti, Elena Bellantoni, Giorgia Accorsi, Roberto Timperi, Mariana Ferratto. |

November 3 - 30, 2009

Please join us at HSF for the opening of io., the tenth group exhibition of artists-in-residence since the program's foundation in 2007. io. presents works by: Doojin Ahn (Korea), Valerio Ricci (Italy), and Larissa Voltz (Germany-Israel).
Co-curated by HSF Chief Curator, Raffaele Bedarida with Junior Curator, Teresa Meucci, the show presents works achieved by the three artists during their stay in New York (August-November-2009).
Valerio Ricci's Storage is an installation composed of 204 hand-made bricks, shaped, painted, and cooked by the artist during his three-month stay at HSF. They cover most of the floor's surface in a room, leaving only a perimetric passageway free. Ordered in an extensive grid, their yellow-glazed ceramic shines as a carpet of gold bullions. Throughout the show, HSF visitors are invited to take home the bricks. Each brick is initialed, dated and numbered on the bottom; each guest can have a brick by filling out a form with his/her contacts and the number of the brick. The artist will therefore be able to send out certificates of authenticity; the owners will become part of a virtual community that would potentially re-unite the pieces. The progressive dismantling of Storage will be documented by a video. The work reverts historical minimalist and participation art practices, and reflects on the paradigmatic artisanal-alchemic nature of art making: it creates a paradoxical short-circuit between the value of things and that of experience, investments of time and real estate. Where will you put a glazed brick (it's free!) in your mini New York apt.?
