The 6th Edition of Lorenzo Bonaldi Award for Art – Enterprize – the only prize supporting the research of a young curator who is under the age of 30 - has been won by the Swiss free-lance curator Fredi Fischli, who presented the exhibition project ‘The Log-O-Rythmic’.
The jury comprised by:
Giacinto Di Pietrantonio - Director, GAMeC, Bergamo
Alex Farquharson – Director, Nottingham Contemporary, Nottingham
Viktor Misiano – Editor in Chief, Moscow Art Magazine, Moscow
awarded Fredi Fischli’s project with the following statement:
We chose a project that was very much engaged with the processes of artistic production – and making these essential to act of presentation. With this exhibition the artists are very much centre stage. These are all artists with a certain currency at the moment and the proposal was well calibrated to the scale and possibilities of this exhibition opportunity. The theme is to merge the situation of the studio and exhibition space in a playful manner that harks back to the renaissance studiolo.
The project will be realized and hosted at GAMeC in 2012.
The award ceremony took place on November 21st, at the end of Qui Enter Atlas. International Symposium of Emerging Curators, during which 14 curators under the age of 35 have discussed the theme ‘The Billiard Effect. Exhibition Histories in the Making’.
