5 March - Elena Volpato
Elena Volpato is an art historian and curator of contemporary art at GAM, Civic Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Turin, where she founded the first public collection of artists videos in Italy. She has curated numerous important exhibitions and has taught, among others, at the art academies in Ravenna and Milan. In her talk she will draw on her most recent project, a comprehensive survey of over one hundred books and manuscript diaries by Dieter Roth presented at Turin's international art book fair FLAT last autumn. Twenty years after the artist's death the exhibition and the accompanying book reflect the vitality of Roth’s prolific oeuvre and testify to the lasting importance of work that continues to be an inexhaustible source of inspiration for contemporary artists.
