The First Morning Fest of Unreasonable Acts is a concentrated celebration of poetry, printed matter, art, sex, life, emotions, goth and gore. Initiated by Antonio Grulli and Keren Cytter, the event will feature performances, drawings, screenings and readings with the existing works of the Palazzo Bentivoglio collection, paying tribute to years of fertile creative collaboration as well as the loneliness of artistic solitude. The First Morning Fest aims to expand the format of Art Presentations in institutional events and make room for more intimate moments, akin to music or theater festivals, where art can still be made and perceived in its doing coupled with the potential to reintroduce risk and experimentation.

The Festival will emphasis uselessness in art, poetry, performance art and social gatherings.

The First Morning Fest of Unreasonable Acts will begin late morning and will end the same day in the afternoon.

Among the artists invited, Hanne Lippard will present a spoken-word performance about the human body and time. Darja Bajagić and Marianna Simnett will screen video works that shift between the abnormal and the horrifying, the painter Sofia Silva and the writer Umberto Silva will collaborate on a tribute to the Italian poet Valentino Zeichen; while the poet Luna Miguel will deliver her dark artistry of words and rhythm in the open air of the Palazzo Bentivoglio gardens.

Two bookshops—Bruno (Venice) and Modo Infoshop (Bologna)—will also collaborate, bringing new and old titles from the artists and writers involved.

Palazzo Bentivoglio is a private collection, put together by Alberto and Gaia Vacchi, situated in a historic building of the same name built in the 16th century in the heart of Bologna. Many works in the collection were commissioned as permanent site-specific installations in the monumental rooms of Palazzo Bentivoglio. Other artists in the collection include Genieve Figgis, Luigi Ghirri, Alex Katz, Luigi Ontani, Renè Ricard, Salvo, Sissi and Wolfgang Tillmans. Palazzo Bentivoglio is open to the public a couple of times a year during events related to the artists in the collection.

The event is organized in collaboration with the Eddy Merckx collective and A.P.E Art Projects Era.
