meeting NOW – New Operation Wave

16-18 October 2015, Zerynthia, Rome (Italy)

On 16-18 October 2015 Zerynthia, comparable to a homepage, opened its spaces to the second NOW network meeting. NOW’s desire is to reinforce and amplify communication between young curators / artists / students through  the creation of a work group made up of participants of the various Academies and Cultural Institutions. Through the network, it’s possible to recreate an original public made up of the players themselves. Let us imagine the participants as viral elements capable of launching, through confrontation, new possibilities and positive contaminations.

During the meeting the group worked on spontaneous vocabulary, using a childhood game. Words proposed by all the participants give life to a work in progress that will be developed the coming months.

Participants: Sara Aloisi / Dario Agati / Nico Angiuli / Darcey Bennett / Santo Alessandro Badolato / Camilla Carè / Cecilia Casorati / Nico Dockx / Franca Ermini /  Alexis Gautier / Karolina Lusikova / Daniele Maffeis / Barbara Nardacchione / OUT44 / Francesca Pellicci / Laura Stancanelli / Elisabetta Tacconelli
