The catalog of the Italian national participation in the 2017 Venice Biennale.

Three artists have been selected to represent Italy at the 2017 Venice Biennale: Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Roberto Cuoghi, and Adelita Husni-Bey. They are relatively young artists, belonging to the same generation as the curator, and have been present on the international art scene since the year 2000.
Their works speak global languages but are closely linked to the culture of Italy, without overlooking its current cosmopolitan aspect. Giorgio Andreotta Calò focuses on dialogues between space and artistic action, Roberto Cuoghi—the best known of the three—carries out research into memory and time, and Adelita Husni-Bey involves the public in artistic practices connected with history and social issues.

A conversation between art and philosophy.

Modern, appealing graphic design.

The book will be of great interest to artists, critics, academics and anyone interested in art.

Cecilia Alemani is the director and chief curator of High Line Art, the public art program of New York’s renowned park, one of the symbols of the city. She is also curator of Frieze Projects, a nonprofit program at Frieze New York.
