when art leaves its own field and becomes visible as part of something else
- Curatorial Project
curated with Judith Wielander
Visible is a research project in contemporary art that has been undertaken by Cittadellarte–Fondazione Pistoletto in collaboration with Fondazione Zegna. Visible reveals and invigorates artistic practices which have a real capacity for creating and experimenting with visions that can impact on the social and cultural imagination of our contemporary world.
The first outcome of visible is a publishing project which has been developed in collaboration with nine curators to showcase 41 ways of making art. Ways that not only address topical contemporary issues, but also intervene directly to spark processes of change.
The visible editorial project focuses on artists who stand out for their capacity to deal proactively with the need to develop new economic models and to ensure the distribution of resources, the accessibility of information, the urgent need to rethink ecology and landscape issues, the potential of diversity, and the development and experimentation of participatory and democratic political models.
