Caterina De Nicola
February 24–April 16, 2023

Istituto Svizzero, Via del Vecchio Politecnico 3, Milano
Opening February 23
In her practice Caterina De Nicola (b. 1991 in Ortona, Italy, lives and works in Zurich) resorts to fiction, writing, sound, and object investigation, and develops an analysis of symbols and motifs, as well as their circulation in a larger cultural system. For her solo exhibition in Milan, she creates a new series of sculptures, drawings as well as a performance, related among others to the idea of the glitch, or an inversion of functions, to questions of how to break with traditional ideas and concepts in the present or to the presence of female artists in the context of noise music.

Klodin Erb
March 24–July 16, 2023

Istituto Svizzero, Via Ludovisi 48, Roma
Opening March 23
Since the late ‘90s Klodin Erb’s (b. 1963 in Winterthur, Switzerland, lives and works in Zurich) artistic practice has revolved around the medium of painting in a free and experimental form. Her body of work, including paintings, objects, installations, and videos, question the limits and possibilities of painting in a unique way. For her first solo exhibition in Italy, the artist, who was granted the prestigious Prix Meret Oppenheim in 2022, is developing a site-specific display of new and existing works in the spaces of Istituto Svizzero in Rome. The exhibition is accompanied by an artist book, published in collaboration with Mousse Publishing.

Gritli Faulhaber & Costanza Candeloro
May 5–June 30, 2023

Istituto Svizzero, Via del Vecchio Politecnico 3, Milano
Opening May 4
A double exhibition by emerging artists Gritli Faulhaber (b. 1990 in Freiburg i. B./Germany, lives and works in Zurich) and Costanza Candeloro (b. 1990 in Bologna, Italy, lives and works in Milan). While Gritli Faulhaber works mainly with paintings, Costanza Candeloro’s practice also involves videos and sculptures, both sharing an interest in teenage culture and its writings in books and fanzines. For the exhibition in Milan, the two artists are developing new works that engage in a mutual dialogue.

Istituto Svizzero acts as an interdisciplinary platform bringing together artistic and scientific research. From Rome, Milan or Palermo, it facilitates connections both between Switzerland and Italy, as well as internationally.
