cura.magazine is a platform for contemporary art that investigates with an independent spirit today’s artistic production, visual art’s emerging scene and the borders that have marked its central moments, through collaborations with international artists and curators, who live in different areas of the world. It has a production of four issues per year.

cura.magazine issue #9, has been launched during Sunday Art Fair 2011, now at Fiac Paris and at Artissima in November.

Next appointments in agenda:

commercial road project
Rome in a showcase in London
cura.magazine in collaboration with the London Metropolitan University and a network of Roman galleries—Federica Schiavo Gallery, 1/9 unosunove, Monitor, Furini Arte Contemporanea and T293—presents “commercial road project.” From October 2011 to October 2012, five international emerging artists—Andrea Sala (IT), Per-Oskar Leu (N), Jesse Ash (UK), Willam Cobbing (UK) and Pennacchio Argentato (IT)—will alternate their work within the space of a year, presenting new and site-specific works in the display window of the University, giving into Commercial Road, in the East End, a few steps from the historical Institution of the Whitechapel Gallery.

The artists are therefore invited to re-interpret the original space of a showcase, that due to its nature, constantly visible to the public, will transform every work into an out-and-out project of public art.

With this initiative cura. also activates in the physical space an opportunity of encounter between artists and international curators, put side-by-side in a critical analysis of the works in each intervention.

A catalogue edited by cura.books, with the critical essays and the photographic documentation of the five projects will be published at the end of the five events cycle, on November 2012.

All the information concerning the project is available at:
