Eva & Franco Mattes. Most to Least Viewed

Date

16/09/2022 – 26/02/2023

Location

FMAV – Palazzo Santa Margherita

Event description

A Palazzo Santa Margherita (Corso Canalgrande, 103), inaugura e prosegue fino al 26 febbraio 2023, la prima personale italiana dei pionieri della Net Art Eva & FrancoMattes. Most to Least Viewed, a cura di Nadim Samman. La mostra si concentra su dati, potere e identità, ambiti che da lungo tempo caratterizzano il lavoro dei due artisti, presentando uno spettro di lavori recenti, selezionati da un misterioso algoritmo e disposti in sequenza dal più visto al meno visto. Come sempre con la loro arte, che fa da specchio alla società dell’informazione, le cose non sono come sembrano. Per il duo, la tensione tra effetti di superficie e condizioni più profonde si rivela terreno fertile per l’immaginazione e la critica

Location

Nuovo Diurno di piazza Mazzini e al Laboratorio aperto

Event description

From Friday 13 May, at the Nuovo Diurno in Piazza Mazzini and at the Open Laboratory, the interactive exhibition that investigates the mechanisms of the perception of reality.

Salvatore Vitale. Decompressed Prism

Date

04.03.22 – 05.06.22

Exhibition venue

FMAV – Palazzo Santa Margherita

Event description

A single large site-specific installation that combines elements of fiction, documents and real data, still and moving images, films and archival research in order to reveal the paradoxes contained in the systemic logic of social monitoring.

Decompressed Prism is Salvatore Vitale’s exhibition curated by Chiara Dall’Olio to be held in the great hall of Palazzo Santa Margherita, from 4 March to 5 June 2022.

Salvatore Vitale with his work shows us how the society in which we live increasingly resembles an airport, in which public life is subjected to ever higher levels of surveillance and security. Airports are in fact the most controlled places and despite being transit areas, this is where surveillance has a profound impact on human behavior: travelers are monitored in their physical experience, constantly “seen” by cameras, and in their data dimension. , analyzed and monitored by different types of biometric technologies for security reasons. His project therefore invites reflection on possible counter-strategies that we, citizens and political subjects, can undertake to promote greater transparency of the systems that regulate society and that shape individual codes and behaviors.

Paolo Cirio. Monitoring Control

Date

from 20-11-2021 to 31-01-2022

Exhibition venue

FMAV – Palazzina dei Giardini

Event description

A single exhibition itinerary that brings together a large and cohesive selection of works produced by the artist over the last ten years, in dialogue with the large installation Iris, created for the occasion.

Monitoring Control is the Paolo Cirio exhibition curated by Marco Scotini.

Through a series of important works, eight of which are present in the exhibition, Paolo Cirio has tried to give visual form to all those forces that control and capture our lives (in a pervasive and violent way), evading normal perception and remaining carefully hidden while operating at the light of the Sun. In this sense, realism means overcoming the constitutive opacity of the contemporary (economic, social, legal) world. Not only through the unmasking of what appears but also through a modeling of what remains buried. For this reason, the title of the exhibition, Monitoring Control, alludes to a double monitoring: that exercised by power and, vice versa, that which social subjectivities can exercise over forms of control, through an awareness of the phenomenon and an antagonistic operation.

Luca Pozzi. Hyperinascimento

Date

from 10-09-2021 to 31-01-2022

Exhibition venue

FMAV – Palazzo Santa Margherita

Event description

HYPERINASCIMENTO is the Luca Pozzi exhibition curated by Lorenzo Respi

With this title the artist launches the idea of a new humanism that brings together art history, quantum gravity, multi-messenger cosmology and AI with an interdisciplinary perspective that has its roots in the Renaissance and then explores the world through the eyes of contemporary science and technologies.

On display there will be a large analog immersive environment accompanied by a virtual one in which the viewer can immerse themselves, crossing a path of spiritual ascension that evokes the nature of a five-dimensional Zen garden in which invisible physical events take place through the use of magnetic fields. and subatomic particle detectors. All this will interact with different social platforms (Twitter, Instagram) and then land on digital spaces where the laws of physics are revolutionized to access surreal parallel universes.

AuroraMeccanica. Figura

Date

from 10-09-2021 to 31-01-2022

Exhibition venue

FMAV – Palazzo Santa Margherita

Event description

Interactive and multimedia video installation conceived by auroraMeccanica and curated by Francesca Fontana.

Figure shows the world of stickers in the contemporary world: here the news is represented by Instagram.

The installation extrapolates from today’s “stickers”, the images that we post every day on social media, the great contemporary themes by comparing them with paper objects, part of the Museum’s collection in Modena, which has handed down history to us. With these premises, the project takes place in a projection of about 9 meters that frames six issues related to the world of (over) production of images. Through an ad hoc algorithm, Figura makes a constantly updated selection of the images posted on Instagram, engaging the viewer with an interactive action, following his gaze and hand gestures, able to enlarge, underline, or point the lens on most important details.
