We are proud to announce another entry in our FEINART Lecture Series. On July 8 at 17:30 BST (18:30 CEST) the FEINART network members Viviana Checchia and Anna Santomauro from Vessel in Bari, Italy will present the lecture: ‘Vessel: a Meridian Practice”.
In this lecture, Viviana Checchia and Anna Santomauro will present a collective engaged curatorial practice beyond the usual schemes: situated but nomadic; responsive but not embedded; institutionalised but not normalised. This practice has been developed during the past 10 years within their intellectual and emotional Vessel, a nomadic research-led agency and curatorial organisation. Vessel is a platform for critical discussion surrounding the cultural, social, economic and political change created through community-based work, based in Puglia, Italy. Vessel has devoted great attention to the definition and development of socially-engaged art practice and contributed internationally through the application of socially-engaged tools and methods in contemporary curatorial practice, always from a perspective other than the mainstream. In this lecture the curators and co-founders of Vessel Viviana Checchia and Anna Santomauro will share some ideas and examples of how that was possible through public programming, commissioning and writing.
