Ticino Art Today
01 July 2021
The contemporary art system in Ticino deserves to be analysed in terms of its supporting structures.
For this reason, the Aldo Galli Academy of Fine Arts - IED Network in Como, which boasts a number of students from the canton, organised a series of talks between museum directors, gallery owners and artists from across the border at the Galli Academy.
The Ticino Art Today project is part of the IED group's project “Not An Artist”. The project chronicles the professions, events, professionals and new professions in the world of Art.
Mara Folini, director of the Museo Comunale d'Arte Moderna in Ascona, and Tobia Bezzola, director of MASI Lugano, spoke about Ticino's museum system.
Among the gallerists were Elena Buchmann of Buchmann Lugano, Michela Negrini of Galleria Michela Negrini, Renato Folini of Folini Arte Contemporanea.
A debate between artists Matteo Fieni, Cosimo Filippini and Alex Dorici, a former pupil of the Galli Academy.
The meetings were moderated by Academy director Nicoletta Castellaneta, artists and lecturers Vanni Cuoghi, Debora Hirsch and Ivan Quaroni, and journalist and curator Roberto Borghi.
The transcripts of the individual speeches were collected in a publication - Ticino Art Today - conceived as a sort of “guide” to contemporary art in Ticino: a small volume - the first of the “Quaderni dell'Accademia Aldo Galli” - aimed primarily at the Italian public that is increasingly visiting Ticino for cultural reasons.
