Fondazione ICA Milano launches its Fall-Winter program with Books & Others, an annual event dedicated to art and visual culture books curated by Chiara CostaDallas (Francesco Valtolina and Kevin Pedron), Giovanna Silva and Alberto Salvadori, offering an overview of the publishing industry through a selection of exhibitions catalogues, artists’ biographies, essays and artist books published in 2018. The initiative includes the exhibition Work-Book-Work curated by Gregorio Magnani with works by Céline CondorelliMichael Dean, Karl Holmqvist, Sara MacKillop and Erik Steinbrecher, focusing on the book as a key element in the artists’ practices.

From September 27 on, ICA will welcome the first permanent work to be housed in its venue: the installation Daily Desiderio Domestico, 2019 by Italian artist Riccardo Benassi.

Why Frontiers Change is dedicated to the Italian duo Masbedo and curated by Alberto Salvadori. The exhibition embraces the artists’ most cherished themes: the history of cinema and its relationship with performance, images as a tool for reflection and memory dissemination, the importance of cultural actions and their performative dimension. Several works have been produced for this solo show, enriched also with a selection of rare and unreleased films produced by Panaria Film, international Sicilian film production company founded in the 1940s. The exhibition is co-produced by In Between Art Film, Stone Island and A.C. AreaVideo.

The programme will continue throughout November with the first solo show in Italy dedicated to the dancer and choreographer Simone FortiClose to the Heart, curated by Alberto Salvadori and Chiara Nuzzi. The exhibition presents fundamental works such as performances, drawings, prints and videos inspired by Forti’s residency in Rome in the 1960s, when her investigations on animal anatomy, ritual movement and gravitational forces remarkably changed her dance practice from then on.

ICA’s project room will host the video installation When The Towel Drops Vol 1 | Italy by Radha May (Elisa Giardina Papa, Bathsheba Okwenje, Nupur Mathur), a work exploring the censored representation of women and sexuality in Italian cinema, tracing a history of the regimentation of female body and queer desire. The project, curated by Claudia D’Alonzo, is promoted by Fondazione Il Lazzaretto.

ICA will conclude the year 2019 with the second chapter of Gallery Focus, the project dedicated to Italian art galleries that shaped the art panorama since the 1950s. Curated by Elena ReArte Povera and “Multipli”, Torino 1970–1975 discloses the story of the Multipli gallery, founded by Giorgio Persano and devoted to the production and circulation of multiples by artists of the Arte Povera movement.

Starting in October 2019, The Mind Is a Muscle, the Public Program curated by Riccardo Venturi, will reflect on themes of dance and performance contributing to the discourse on “the living,” main research topic of Fondazione ICA under the direction of Alberto Salvadori.

In late winter ICA will activate the first chapter of AAA - Art and Access for All, a project dedicated to people affected by Alzheimer disease and to those who take care of them.

Opening hours: Thursday–Sunday, 11am–7pm
