Alighiero e Boetti Day: Explore the Complex, Multifaceted Figure of Alighiero Boetti

TURIN, ITALY.- Artissima, the Fondazione Nicola Trussardi and the Fondazione per l'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT presents Alighiero e Boetti Day, a twelve-hour, non-stop event, which will explore the complex, multifaceted figure of Alighiero Boetti. From noon to midnight on Saturday, 28 May 2011, in the evocative setting of Carlo Mollino's Auditorium RAI in Turin artists, art historians, critics, writers, musicians, scientists, and collaborators and friends of Alighiero Boetti have been invited to investigate the wide-ranging, influential work and ideas of one of the 20th century's most significant, yet most enigmatic artists.

Alighiero e Boetti Day is a hybrid event, a cross between a conference, artistic project, performance and biographical narration: twelve hours of sessions, open to the public, which will include individual speakers, discussions, roundtables, screenings of films and interviews, presentations of never-before-seen material, readings, artistic incursions and theatrical gestures, fitting together like a thousand tiles to compose a single, vast, colourful mosaic. An invaluable opportunity to learn more about the artist, Alighiero e Boetti Day is also, above all, a way to look back over Alighiero Boetti's artistic practice through the eyes of those who were close to him and still are: the experts and artists of different generations who continue to keep his legacy and thoughts alive. Alighiero e Boetti Day experiments with a new exhibition and research format: a platform of exchange centred not on works but on stories and first-hand accounts, aimed at celebrating an individual who achieved legendary status for many artists and cultural figures in the past, and who seems even more significant today.

With contributions, presentations, interviews, special projects and tributes by: Salman Alì, Stefano Arienti, Stefano Bartezzaghi, Thomas Bayrle, Achille Bonito Oliva, Robert Cailliau, Clino Castelli, Maurizio Cattelan, Germano Celant, Laura Cherubini, Francesco Clemente, Lynne Cooke, Pino Corrias, Roberto Cuoghi, Giulia Currà, Mariangelica De Gaetano, Mario Dellavedova, Pietro Derossi, Dexter Sinister, Patrizio Di Massimo, Peppe Frana, Guido Fuga, Giorgio Galli, Mario Garcia Torres, Piero Gilardi, Marco Giusti, Mark Godfrey, Emidio Greco, Rolf Lauter, Corrado Levi, Giorgio Maffei, Randi Malkin Steinberger, Andrea Marescalchi, Massimo Mininni, Jonathan Monk, Ugo Nespolo, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Luigi Ontani, Giulio Paolini, Francesca Pasini, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paola Pivi, Christian Rattemeyer, Maria Teresa Roberto, Rinaldo Rossi, Pier Luigi Sacco, Daud Khan Sadozai, Salvo, Federico Tiezzi, Tommaso Trini, Andrea Valle, [iaŋ] [voo], Adelina von Fuerstenberg, and Lawrence Weiner.
