NY PRIZE - PREMIO NEW YORK WINNER OF THE 2017 EDITION: GIAN MARIA TOSATTI

 

Salon: Gian Maria Tosatti
Gian Maria Tosatti will speak about his long term project related with the city of New York and the current step focused on the dark page of Japanese American internment during WWII. For this research the artist won the New York Prize 2017.
The Salons are open to general public.

 

The Premio New York brings promising emerging Italian artists to New York for a residency at the ISCP Gallery (International Studio and Curatorial Program) in Brooklyn, with the support of the Academy, the Italian Cultural Institute in New York, and—in Italy—the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism.

Gian Maria Tosatti’s projects are generally long-term investigations of specific topics related to the concept of identity, from the political to the spiritual. His first series of projects include Devozioni (2005-2011) which concerned archetypes of the modern era and comprised ten installations, all in buildings in Rome, and Landscapes (2006-current), a public art project focused on areas of urban conflict.

Among Tosatti’s current projects are Fondamenta (2011- current), based on the identification of contemporary archetypes and Le considerazioni (2009 - current) on the enigmas of personal memory and the traces that human beings leave behind them. From 2013-16 his research focused on Sette Stagioni dello Spirito, a work that has embodied the entire city of Naples.

In 2011 he curated RELOAD, a prototype of cultural urban intervention about the temporary use of uninhabited spaces. He is the founder of the project La Costruzione di una Cosmologia (www.unacosmologia.com).

Tosatti, a journalist and essayist, was editor in chief of the weekly cultural newspaper La Differenza and has written for several Italian newspapers and magazines. He is currently a columnist at the publication, Artribune on Opera Viva. He writes essays about art and politics.
