PIANO, a Franco-Italian curatorial platform created upon the initiative of d.c.a / French association for the development of centres d’art, is entering its second phase in 2015, further developing the dynamic initiated in 2014, with a renewed ambition covering new ground and continuing to explore different formats.

PIANO is a shared workspace and a polyphonic instrument that welcomes, at various rhythms and tempos, d.c.a’s member centres d’art on the French side, and a wider range of organizations in Italy: public and private museums, as well as foundations and alternative spaces. This year, the platform is more importantly claiming to be an active and constructive research area promoting the definition of new models with a wealth of shared expertise from the institutions involved. 

PIANO comes in various formats: residency exchanges, invitations to international curators and the curatorships shared by the directors of the different art venues. They involve emerging and established artists from all generations.

The projects produced in 2014 reflect the diversity and uniqueness of the partner organizations:

www.pianoproject.org designed and powered by CURA. is an online information exchange instrument for art professionals, but also a resource platform open to the public.

In the spirit of the “prepared piano” invented by Erik Satie and later popularized by John Cage, PIANO encourages the novel use of cultural exchange instruments. With the aim of returning to the essence of art and constantly reshaping its creative tools, PIANO promotes plasticity in relations between disciplines, spheres and regions. Whether online or at large, PIANO aims to harmonize public and private cultural initiatives, combining their sensibilities.


With 49 centres d’art, d.c.a / French association for the development of centres d’art aims to give centres d’art greater visibility by collaborations, co-productions, joint publications, national and international partnerships, based on artistic exchanges.
