PIANO is a Franco-Italian curatorial platform created on the initiative of the d.c.a / the French association for the development of centres d’art.

For the first phase of the project in 2014, 17 organizations are joining forces to develop 20 art projects, some of which even fall outside of this Franco-Italian geography. In 2015 PIANO aims to extend the exchanges to new French and Italian art organizations, eventually turning towards Europe as a whole.

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:

Kunst Meran Merano Arte (Merano) designed and powered by CURA. will be 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 48 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.
