The Curatorial Collective, composed of the students of the ninth edition of the Luiss Master of Art, 1st level University Master of Luiss Business School, with the scientific supervision of Achille Bonito Oliva, presents HABITAT. Transversal relations, an exhibition that reflects on the theme of contemporary habitat in relation to artistic practice.
From December 3, 2019 to January 14, 2020 in the spaces of the House of Literature, in Piazza dell’Orologio 3 in Rome.
The concept of Habitat is represented by the works of artists of different generations and languages through three declinations of the theme: Natural, Urban, Virtual. The works of Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Gohar Dashti and Roberto Ghezzi reflect the natural habitat. The urban one, Ugo La Pietra, Margherita Moscardini and Superstudio. The virtual habitat Carola Bonfili, Carolin Liebl with Nikolas Schmid-Pfähler and Guido Segni. Painting, sculpture, photography, video and installations are located inside and outside the prestigious Borromini complex of the House of Literature.
The works of Giulia Berra, Maria Di Stefano and Elena Mazzi, finalists of the fourth edition of the International Prize for Contemporary Generation established by the Luiss Business School to promote Italian and foreign contemporary art, support artists under 35 and give life to the permanent collection of contemporary art of the School, will also be on display.
During the inauguration, the winner will be announced, chosen by a jury chaired by Achille Bonito Oliva.
“Habitat is an active state. A mechanism for the functioning of things, which must be dynamic in order to evolve. Like man. On closer inspection, the human species is the only one capable of creating endogenous conditions that facilitate life in a certain place, and at the same time, of adapting to the allogeneic conditions that it has to face: humanity not only adapts to the habitat in which it finds itself, but also modifies it in order to make it more functional. This develops as a dense network of interconnections of different nature that, intertwining, influence and feed each other. Transversal relations that touch on several levels of existence: Natural, Urban, Virtual. In the translation into the language of contemporary art, these three ramifications aim to highlight how these different but complementary habitats are dispensers of aesthetic implications and can play an active role in the definition of the work of art.
