Diary of the Ornament: A Conversation between Agostino Iacurci and Simone Ciglia on Instagram Live 

This conversation between artist Agostino Iacurci and art critic Simone Ciglia will explore central gestures of the artist’s multifaceted practice. Starting from Iacurci’s residency experience at ISCP, the two will discuss the artist’s relationship with classical antiquity, ornamentality, and the social dimensions of public art. The talk will focus on a selection of Iacurci’s recent projects, including Tracing Vitruvio (2019), Ddddddddom (2019), Wall Painting (2019), Gypsoteca (2018), Walter (2018), and Trompe l’oeil (2017).

Agostino Iacurci works with a wide range of media, including painting, wall-painting, sculpture, drawing, and installation. He creates immersive spaces to transform the perception of given environments. Starting from specific topics like the use of colors in the ancient and classical world, he questions issues of traditions and identity, investigating the process of idealization underlying historical myths and their impact on the collective imagination.

Simone Ciglia (Pescara, 1982) is Professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino, Italy; Assistant Researcher at the MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts in Rome; and he teaches courses in Contemporary Art at the University of Oregon. His areas of research focus on marginal spaces within contemporary art, including its relationship to agriculture, craft, and utopian/dystopian impulses. He works as a freelance curator and correspondent for Flash Art Magazine, and writes for a variety of publications, including Treccani and Zanichelli. He holds a Ph.D. in the History of Contemporary Art from the “Sapienza” University of Rome.

Artists at Work: Malte Bartsch on Instagram Live

Resident Malte Bartsch will present some of his works and launch his newly released book Auto Modus, published by Distanz. The catalog Auto Modus is a tour of Bartsch’s two-part exhibition at the Städtische Galerie in Wolfsburg and in Braunschweig; it is the first documentation of the artist’s work in book form.

With his interventions and installations, Malte Bartsch transforms the intended modus operandi of everyday objects and buildings. For example, he has turned a refrigerator inside out so that it cools its surroundings, switched street lamps on and off to be used as reading lights, and installed a slot machine in front of a museum to change it into an after-hours disco.
