I’m an independent writer and curator currently based in Grenoble (France) as I am participating at the Curatorial Training Program of L’Ecole du Magasin.
From 2006 to 2009, I was editor of Flash Art magazine in Milan and New York. I also worked as curatorial assistant to a number of Italian curators.
My researches focus on the artistic production of curatorial and artist collectives, the socials and political origins of the informal economy in contemporary art, and the potential of writing as a medium for curatorial practice.
For Session 19 I’m developing a project that revolves around fiction, in particular, artists’ writings and collective artistic production used as tactics of fiction by contemporary artists.
