M9 – Museo del ‘900 is among the institutions that the art fair ArtVerona has chosen for the 2020 edition of Level 0, project conceived in 2013 to network and support the art system, which this year invited 19 museums and foundations to identify an Italian artist to be promoted in its future programming.
ArtVerona, in its role as a fair aimed at networking and promoting the art system, continues its commitment to the organisation on the digital platform of the eighth edition of Level 0, a format conceived by Andrea Bruciati that over the years has given rise to exhibitions, installations, performances, workshops and meetings that have met with the approval of critics and the public, as well as the actors involved, first and foremost the artists, but also gallery owners and institutions. In addition to the museums that have signed up this year, demonstrating that they have fully grasped the meaning of this project, private foundations are also taking part for the first time, on the basis of a recent phenomenon in which several collectors have decided to open up their contemporary art holdings to the public, becoming real players in the Italian art system.
The artist selected by M9 – Museo del ‘900 is Letizia Cariello, represented by Galleria Studio G7 in Bologna.
“Letizia Cariello has always worked on the theme of weaving, stitching and excavation, generating artefacts and installations that create new forms of connection between realities and bodies,” writes Luca Molinari, Scientific Director of M9 – Museo del ‘900. – Her work looks at words and symbols, trying to define new objects that awaken a sense of wonder in the visitor and a progressive seduction, capable of arousing curiosity.
M9 – Museo del ‘900 has always worked on sedimented and removed memories, on simple gestures and on the relationship between people and reality. This is why Letizia Cariello’s work seems significant for our cultural mission, with the aim of exhibiting some of her works and hosting her for a talk or workshop, allowing her to meet our target communities.“
