IoDeposito & the Municipality of Gradisca d'Isonzo
PPP & Dora Bassi: eredità ai contemporanei
Mar 9-Apr 16, 2023
From 9 March to 16 April 2023, IoDeposito and the Municipality of Gradisca d'Isonzo are organizing an exhibition at Casa Maccari presenting a group of newly rediscovered works by Dora Bassi – back to light after decades of private ownership – in dialogue with works by female artists international events, on the themes dearest to Pasolini: eros between politics and privacy, the relationship with the territory, human relationships as an antidote to the harshness of modern times, experimentation with materials as a metaphor for the body and our humanity.
A little over a hundred years after his birth, the contamination has revealed itself to be the true stylistic code of Pier Paolo Pasolini, at the roots of his poetics: the contamination with artists and writers of the area, in close contact with the genius loci of his region of birth.
With Dora Bassi, her contemporary and representative of a feminist movement that wanted, among the first, to give visibility to the work of women in the arts, a creative, fresh and fruitful dialogue came to life, which found its way into the genesis of new works of art, and which has sown the seeds of a profitable cultural heritage which today influences international artists and intellectuals who work in different fields, from philosophy to performance, from installation to video art.
On display, the works of: Dora Bassi, Zosia Zoltkowski, Nathalie Vanheule, Quynh Lam.

Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp x Het Bos
Oct 06, 2022
Extra Academy organizes an open program of lectures, performances, workshops and screenings around artistic practice, reflection and research.
Extra Academy is an alliance between the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, Sint Lucas School of Arts and Het Bos, and is curated by Nico Dockx (Academy), Teun Verbruggen (Conservatoire) and Helen Mauli Dowling (Sint Lucas).
The platform that they offer, is one where participants become acquainted with practices and visions that are hardly or not at all addressed in the media or art education. In this way they aspire to create a much broader picture of the stratification and rich complexity of what contemporary artistic practice can mean in dialogue with, among other things, art-historical, socio-political, philosophical and economic implications.
Extra Academy is being held at Het Bos, Ankerrui 5-7, 2000 Antwerpen.
More than 70 Extra Academies have already taken place, since 2011 at Kunsthal Extra City and since 2018 at Het Bos.

匿名の女性たち – 私は当事者ではない
Anonymous Women - Not the one concerned
June 6-12 & 16-26, 2022
five minutes is a unique video performance art showcase which represents works by female artists from around the world (Japan, Uruguay, Thailand, Belgium, India, Singapore, the Philippines, Bangladesh, Vietnam, South Korea, Germany) who support the Burmese anonymous women artists under their difficult circumstances.
Artists: Ana Aristimuño Olivera, Aor Nopawan, Béatrice Didier, Dimple B Shah, Eve Tan, Jessica Tanto, Minori Sumiyoshiyama, Nerisa Del Carmen Guevara, Noel Langone, Preema Nazia Andaleeb, Quỳnh Lâm, Racquel de Loyola, Sakiko Yamaoka, Snežana Golubović, Yeonjeong
The project has been in process for about three years with the aim of holding an exhibition in Myanmar titled Anonymous Women – Not the once Concerned. Through regular individual and group discussions using the Zoom app., we have had numerous dialogues with the “participant” communities and individuals who collaborate on research and productions.
“Anonymous Women” are the artists themselves and the Burmese women who are their subjects. The image of a woman as a subject is established by the subjectivity of the artist as another person. Therefore, it becomes a rhetorical dilemma that the individuality of the subject is abstracted to the extent when “the appearance that is different from the image of the subject that they themselves know” becomes clearer. But what if they had themselves as their subject? In that case, both the subject and the artist are the person concerned, but can the two parties be the same person? In this project, they are not only the object to be drawn but also the subject / the one concerned. Here, by providing the crown “Anonymous Women”, the subject and the object are reversed or obscured, and the participation of others is possible. Now, who is saying, “I’m not the one concerned”?
A coup d’etat by the Armed Forces on February 1, 2022, forced a radical overhaul of this project. The holding of exhibitions in Myanmar has become desperate, and the continuation of daily expression activities for the artists participating in this project, especially in Myanmar, is in an extremely difficult situation next to personal danger. The meaning of the word “anonymous” has changed and weighs very heavily. In order to find a way out of this situation, it can be said that the formation of global public opinion and continuous support for Myanmar are indispensable. The main purpose of this project is to listen to the precious voices of the “anonymous women” themselves and to support the continuation of their expression activities. I would like to think about how to reach this stance “I am also the one concerned”, even within Japan, while forming a multi-layered network.
How do we communicate when we are immediately banned from expressing our identities?
The puzzling question was imaginative, but it did happen. There have been identities
in Burmese history that could not be described as “ anonymous” or “unnamed”. The Coup d’état in Feb 2021 transformed the third generations to study and survive as anonymous. This is exactly what happened in Myanmar at 2022, Now. More than 50% of Myanmar’s population is women. A large number of women were actively involved in this revolution. The first protester to be shot (Mya Thwet Thwet Khaing) was also a woman. We had very difficult time. One of us, who had been imprisoned before, was able to disguise her “work of art” and “artist name” and stay away from torture to death. We still have to remain anonymous in order to survive. We try. We want to try. Read what we have to say without knowing who we are. Let you hear. Despite the restrictions on disclosure, we still have a lot to talk about. We are happy to show you the fearlessness.
Longgyi ロンジ（sarong for women) is important in politics. Conversations is killing like a thorn in the side. The female icon is a great recognition for the masses of women who have resisted national reconstruction. You will find it from the artists who want to remain anonymous. The relationship between human life, death and QR codes; One of the things the exhibition want artists/Burmese people to know is the responsibilities of the country on our shoulders, which we always carry on, make us feel overwhelmed, even if we are an anonymous artists. We worried and scared to use to stay with fear. Fear coexists with day-to-day affairs. We were ordered to kill protesters, poet and street photographer have been tortured to death, filmmaker arrested, burn down people alive, fired to the villages until yesterday and today. COVID-19 and Coup d’état hit the thousands of lives away after 16th months of Junta. We fear that we will lose our loved ones. Today, our citizen are swallowing the freedom to laugh and be happy.
In the days when we had to run and hide, people in our country are running out of art they create. Things to talk about are spreading like blood all over the body. We were anonymous and did not want to be named. We speak out with what we have, what we does in our hands. Didn’t we marvel at the strength of anonymity as justice and emphatic as the world’s top secret anonymous hacker group boldly joined to stop wars? Anonymous hackers have been active in Russia, Calling for an immediately end to hostilities on Russia’s main military control website. The definition of anonymous was used by many criminals, but now it has changed dramatically.

Panel Talk: Performance Art in the Southeast Asian Diaspora
May 14, 2022
Join us for this panel talk moderated by Mark Rappolt (ArtReview) and topic of discussion: Performance Art in the Southeast Asian Diaspora with artists Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen and Quỳnh Lâm, curator Tanya Michele Amador (Peruke Projects). This is held on the occasion of London Gallery Weekend in conjunction with our group exhibition titled Rituals and Rebirths curated by Peruke Projects in collaboration with A.I..
The exhibition examines the performances of three diasporic Southeast Asian multi-disciplinary artists, constructed around the rituals concerning the rebirths of their oeuvres and the marking of time. These three artists living between cultures, with transnational hybrid identities, are brought together for the first time alongside one another. This formidable trio – Anida Yoeu Ali (b.1974, Cambodia), Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (b.1970, Philippines/living in Denmark), and Quỳnh Lâm (b.1988, Vietnam) - brings to a new audience an opportunity to reflect upon their experiences of crisis, displacement, and otherness, through their rituals, renewals, responses and provocations.
Presented as an installation of videos, photographs, symbolic objects and artefacts, and two participatory performances by Rasmussen and Lâm, the artists document the passing of time in each of their ceremonies. Ali’s The Red Chador installation illustrates the death and rebirth of a provocative and politicized alter ego. Rasmussen’s Today is your performance demonstrates the cyclical nature of life, while Lâm's The Price of Humanity performance illuminates the tumultuous journey of a nomadic outcast.
Rituals and Rebirths explores the intersections of the three artists' responses to both their personal and geo-political narratives that have shaped their identities.
This exhibition is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund and Embassy of Denmark, London.

Ricostruzioni Interpretazioni Contemporanee Della Storia Friulana
Apr 03-May 15, 2022
Sunday 3rd April, the Friuli Homeland Day , becomes the perfect occasion for the inauguration of Ricostruzioni. Contemporary interpretations of Friulian history : the exhibition organized by IoDeposito at the Prison Tower of the Abbey Complex of Moggio di Sopra. Through eight works by Italian and international artists, the exhibition re-constructs, thanks to the means of contemporary art, the difficult role of limes between the east and west of the world that Friuli Venezia Giulia has played for centuries.
Invasions, foreign dominations, traumatic events but also brackets of socio-cultural splendor dot the past of Friuli Venezia Giulia and have contributed to the definition of the identity of its people. An identity that has been able to draw a strong sense of pride from these events, but also an intimate generosity and openness towards different cultures and peoples.
The works on display are the result of residencies during which each artist was able to explore the area, study its history and get to know its inhabitants, interpreting their cultural substrate. With video art and sound art performances, photographs and installations, the artists bring out the traces and scars of the region's past, reinterpreting them in a new light and promoting fresh insights.
Thus, Beatrice Achille opens up an inner space that surprises us as unaware custodians of the culture of the Patriarchate; Luger and Dunnill create a melody directly connected to the land and rivers of Friuli Venezia Giulia, while Tablazon's photographs lay bare the soul, the past and the history of the places in the region visited by the artist. Furthermore, at the opening of the exhibition on Sunday 3 April, the Italian-Iranian duo formed by Alice Mestriner and Ahad Moslemi will present the installation Elbow tree, an artist's ethnography that investigates the collective memory of the Canal del Ferro-Val Canale area: the couple interacted with local historians, cultural activists, teachers, writers, families, the elderly and young people, elaborating their collective memory. From this intense research work, a kinetic installation full of meaning has taken shape, whose mechanical arm incessantly mixes the earth from Italy, Austria and Slovenia: a symbol of the perpetual movement that over the centuries has seen the integration of people and languages in extreme northeastern Italy.
The artists reflect the value of multiculturalism that has always distinguished the Friuli area: the works of Beatrice Achille (Italy), Alice Mestriner (Italy) & Ahad Moslemi (Iran), Quynh Lam (Vietnam), Cristian Tablazon (Philippines ), Dan Allon (Israel), Zofia Zoltkowski (Australia) and Cannupa Hanska Luger & Ginger Dunnill (USA).
The inauguration of Ricostruzioni will take place at 11.30 and will follow the Holy Mass in Friulian at the Abbey of San Gallo, in the Abbey Complex of Moggio di Sopra (UD).
The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Pro Loco Moggese and is financed by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region.
On the occasion of the "Setemane de Culture Furlane", the exhibition can be visited from 3 April to 15 May, on weekend afternoons, from 15.00 to 18.30

Museum of Contemporary Art Nashville
Presents TMP1, “Radical” Thoughts
Mar 13-May 19, 2021
TMP1 curatorial statement:
A global crisis in the 21st century is much more than quarantine baking, hand-washing techniques, and curbside pickup. We have learned that a global crisis changes the way society operates. This change in operation has exposed and continues to expose the inadequacies in our system and how it is failing us. These same inadequacies fuel the need to create new practices that will not only assist in the advancement of our society but allow us to define the relationship between radical thought and radical practice. Through art, we explore how science, sustainability, and socialism can and will contribute to us creating a new, functional, and citizen-oriented system.
Check out the participating artists for MOCAN’s upcoming exhibition, “Radical” Thoughts, a contemporary exploration of how our world is evolving in the face of unprecedented conditions.
TMP1 will be held in Nashville from March 13 to May 29, 2021. To learn more about the exhibition, visit MOCAN’s website and to register for a ticket, visit the invitation.

"Inspired by the desire to narrow the gap between contemporary art with the general public, as well as connecting artists, the exhibition is part of a bigger community art project with the same title hosted at four different spaces: Sao La, Lê Công Kiều Station, Freeland, and Studio Nguyễn Công Trứ.
