Nemici: Saturday November 7th 2015 at the Rich Mix Arts Centre - London

Saturday November 7th 2015 at the Rich Mix Arts Centre
An ambitious celebration of contemporary Italian & British poetry and art in London!
The first instalment of the Nemici project will take place in London, and will bring together Italian poets from all over Italy and all over Europe, to work in collaboration, as pairs, with a series of British poets. Each pair will produce original work for the night, in what should be a great testament to the dynamic potential of collaboration alongside the best of the rapidly evolving 21st century Italian literary tradition.

The Protagonist - Piano Nobile, Geneva - September 24th to October 31st

The Protagonist, an exhibition by Francesco Pedraglio
PV: Thursday, September 24th
September 24th to October 31st

Francesco Pedraglio's film, produced for this exhibition and extended into an installation, is a collage of literary references, filmic language and broken-up narratives that reveal its own inner workings. The construction of a main character becomes a happening in front of the camera and becomes the focus of the film itself, starting with a conversation recorded in a legendary Geneva cinema.

Curators: Madeleine Amsler and Marie-Eve Knoerle

Fig. 2 - Monday 13 / Sunday 19 July

13 – 19 Jul 2015
At ICA Studio (in association with Outset)
Opening Monday 6 – 8pm
Patrick Coyle and Francesco Pedraglio’s first collaborative exhibition takes the form of a conversation based on recent bodies of work. Both working with forms of visual and spoken language, investigating the dichotomies of meaning, narrative and thought forms, their exhibition forms the ground for a dialogue that manifests itself as text, images, objects and spoken word. The aesthetic articulations and conceptual approximations converge and diverge from one another, creating a breathing space for emergence of unprecedented meaning and associations. The opening and closing of the exhibition will host two performances by Coyle and Pedraglio influenced by a floating cedilla and based on an unauthorised translation of a poem by Edoardo Sanguineti, respectively.

(poema) - Norma Mangione Gallery - Turin - 16 giugno – 25 luglio 2015

Norma Mangione Gallery
Via Matteo Pescatore 17
Turin, Italy

A poem that is also another poem or a poem in a language that is the same poem in another language yet also a different one (in both languages) and that is imaginable as an intermittent line that becomes a wall drawing deliverable out loud in a room and that at the same time is also a dialogue between two friends discussing a group of objects some of which are images that could be read as symbols or should be read simply as a poem that is also another poem and so on.

At the same time, other things happen in every other place.
