A study day and an exhibition dedicated to Francesca Alinovi at MAMbo

26 OCT 2013 – MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna dedicates a study day and an exhibition to the research and critic practice of Francesca Alinovi (Parma, 1948 – Bologna, 1983) 30 years since her sudden death.

On 26 October, a study day was dedicated to Alinovi, in collaboration with the Department of Fine Arts of the University of Bologna and curated by Claudio Marra and Gino Gianuizzi: a chance to discover and analyze in depth her activity as a curator and brilliant researcher, through the contributions of Alinovi’s friends and fellow intellectuals coming from the most diverse fields, such as visual arts, architecture, photography, performance, theatre, dance, comics, music, fashion.
The talks involved contributions by Gianfranco Maraniello, Giuseppina La Face, Gino Gianuizzi, Renato Barilli, Franco Berardi Bifo, Loredana Parmesani, Claudio Marra, Oderso Rubini, Ivo Bonacorsi, Roberto Freak Antoni, Pierluigi Tazzi, Marco Zanardi (Marcorea Malià), Igor Tuveri (Igort), Mariuccia Casadio.

The exhibition displayed at MAMbo from 26 October to 17 November presents a selection of documents, curated by Sabrina Samorì, as an attempt to show the complexity of the researcher’s interests, her attention towards all emerging artistic movements, and the originality of her critical approach.
Publications, photographs, letters, and other testimonies – collected among her heirs, friends, and from MAMbo’s archives – follow Francesca Alinovi’s professional steps, offering themselves as heterogeneous clues leading to the discovery of a short-lived intellectual adventure that is yet to be adequately studied and valued. Besides this selection, the exhibition presents a video by Veronica Santi, an excerpt from her documentary Off-Identikit, that collects testimonies by many art professionals, still active in the New York scene, who entertained work and friendship relations with Alinovi, and sustained an unprecedented though fruitful creative exchange in between the metropolis and the Italian city of Bologna.
