Castello di Rivoli Museum of Contemporary Art and the Supporting Friends of the Museum are pleased to announce that the 2007 Fellowship for Young Italian Artists has been awarded to Christian Frosi.

The Fellowship was established in 2001 to actively promote and support the dissemination of young Italian art on the international scene. The winning artist, selected every year from a list of candidates under the age of 40, receives a Fellowship of 20,000 Euros. To grant maximum creative freedom, candidates are solely required to submit a project that calls for them to spend time in a foreign country for research or studio work, with the final goal of creating new artworks. The Castello di Rivoli is committed to providing support to the recipient of the Fellowship, organizing travel arrangements and facilitating the stay abroad through liaisons with institutions in the chosen country.

For the 2007 edition, the artists selected by Marcella Beccaria, Curator at Castello di Rivoli, were Christian Frosi, Alex Cecchetti and Alice Guareschi. Thanks to the Fellowship, Christian Frosi will realize the project titled Waiting Yippipie.

Christian Frosi was born in Milan in 1973, where he lives and works. His group shows include in 2003 the Prague Biennial; in 2005 T1 — The Pantagruel Syndrome, Turin; Dojo, Ex Faema, Milan; We disagree, Andrew Kreps Gallery, New York; Premio Furla per l’arte, Bologna; in 2007 Floating Territories, Istanbul, Athens, Venice. Recent solo shows include those at Galleria Zero…, Milan, Isabella Bortolozzi Galerie, Berlin, Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle, Munich and the participation in the exhibition Ambient Tour at the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin.

Previous Fellowships have been awarded to Grazia Toderi (2001), Alessandra Tesi (2002), Margherita Manzelli (2003), Lara Favaretto (2004) and Gianni Caravaggio (2005).

The program of the Supporting Friends of Castello di Rivoli’s Fellowship for Young Italian Artists also includes the sponsorship of Lara Favaretto’s project at the 2008 Sydney Biennial.
