“The other side of avantgarde”

Thirty years after “L’altra metà dell’avanguardia” (“The other side of avantgarde”) – the exhibition curated by Lea Vergine in 1980, which first highlighted the work of women artists in the twentieth century, a milestone in the rethinking of modern and contemporary art – FuoriLuogo|OutOfPlace presents a series of encounters with a generation of contemporary women artists in their thirties and early fourties with the aim of presenting the work of this younger generation and their reflections with regard to their research and the art system within which they work.
The underlying theme connecting the seven artists’ work  will be the relation between art and knowledge. This year’s FuoriLuogo intends to research the variety of interests and starting points, the processes and procedures that these artists have put into practice ,  the specific spheres of knowledge relevant for each artist  and the very particular observation points or perspectives that those special interests imply.
The seven artists’ projects – with different modalities, sensibilities and attitudes – confront the more complex aspects of knowledge: from psychology to anthropology, from history to neuroscience, from cognitive science to epistemology. Our aim is, on the one hand, to build an interdisciplinary discussion in which artists could meet speakers from different fields of study verging on the areas their own research has touched on; and on the other, to guide the audience along a complex and exciting pathway of contemporary artistic reasoning. The motive is not to rebuild a poetic vision ‘common’ to ‘the other half of the universe’, but to better comprehend the differing perspectives on the complex world of knowledge and its definitions which fascinate and dominate the work of this generation caught in a precarious equilibrium between artistic creation and the complex universe of intellectual discovery.
The fourth edition of FuoriLuogo|OutOfPlace – series of meetings organized by Connecting Cultures from April to November 2010 – deals with contemporary themes observed through an interdisciplinary approach with the collaboration of artists, thinkers, philosophers and critics.
