The Directorate General for Contemporary Creativity and Urban Regeneration of the Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities and for Tourism and NOS Visual Arts Production, curatorial director of the cultural association Nosadella.due, present the third edition of Grand Tour d’Italie which this year will feature the cities of Bologna and L’Aquila and a greater number of artists than in previous editions.

Conceived in 2016 by the then Directorate General for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Suburbs, the Grand Tour d’Italie aims to connect Italian mid-career artists with curators and directors of artistic residencies and international contemporary art centers in order to strengthen the promotion of the Italian scene abroad.

From 12 to 16 November 2019 thirty artists selected from all over Italy by the curators of NOS Elisa Del Prete and Silvia Litardi will converge in Bologna and L’Aquila to present their work to representatives of ten international institutions identified in turn as excellences for the activity of artistic exchange and inter-cultural dialogue that they promote.

MAMbo – Museo d’Arte Moderna di Bologna and Accademia di Bel – the Arts of L’Aquila will host in their respective cities a programme of closed-door visits and in-depth study of the Italian art scene that will see the direct encounter between each artist and the host institutions.

Bologna has always been a crossroads of subcultures and is distinguished by its identity as a creative and university city as well as a city of adoption of many artists. Four hundred km further south, right in the centre of Italy, L’Aquila, after the earthquake that struck its historic centre in 2009, ten years later offers instead a case of Italian best practice for the process of rebirth that has
lived also thanks to the artistic intervention. Here, at the historic Palazzo Ardinghelli, the most important museum of contemporary Italian art, the MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts, will open its first branch within the year.

The international institutions invited: CAPC Musée d’art contempo- rain de Bordeaux (Bordeaux-France), Frame (Helsinki-Finland), Istanbul Modern (Istanbul – Turkey), Maumaus (Lisbon – Portugal), Museo de Artes Plasticas Eduardo Sìvori (Buenos Aires – Argentina), Nirox Foundation (Johannesburg – South Africa), NTU Center for Contemporary Art Singapore (Singapore), Rotor (Graz – Austria), RUPERT (Vilnius – Lithuania), Sazmanab, (Tehran – Iran)….

The selected artists: Alterazioni Video, Andreco, Sara Basta, Riccardo Benassi, Carola Bonfili, Simone Cametti, Chiara Camoni, Canecapovolto, David Casini, Federico Cavallini, Giulia Cenci, Luca Coclite, Davide D’Elia, Maria Adele Del Vecchio, Roberto Fas- sone, Giovanni Giaretta, GrossiMaglioni, Valentina Medda, Jacopo Miliani, Giovanni Ozzola, Mattia Paje, Luana Perilli, Mariagrazia Pontorno, Anna Raimondo, Ivana Spinelli, Sasha Vinci, Giacomo Zaganelli, Virginia Zanetti. In addition, Flavio Favelli and Angelo Bellobono were invited as Godfathers to their respective cities of Bologna and L’Aquila for the work they did in the two con-texts.

The choice of the artists – say the curators – was guided by the desire to conduct a survey of the Italian art scene in the last 15 years, a period of time in which the Great Redeemer is placed, the economic crisis of the twenty-first century on a global scale. United by an era that tries to define the paradigm shift to which it is called to overcome an economic/productive model that is no longer sustainable, the artists offer an open investigation into the aesthetic reactions of our time, from those who have suffered globalization since the beginning as well as those who, younger, were born right in the heart of the transformation taking place.

Beyond any linguistic or thematic boundary, the artists chosen are confronted with a present that calls for a new linguistic and procedural experimentation, for the need for a confrontation no longer with the image itself, but with the artifice that originates it, with its possibilities, the potential of form, matter, technology, relationships. What they have in common is certainly a shrewd attitude in which curiosity has replaced denunciation, observation, spectacularization, experience and science. The work of these artists infiltrates the interstices of the current world not to change pre-establishments and conditions but to imagine others.

NOS is the curatorial board of the cultural association Nosadella. due. An unprecedented subject that fits atypically into the current art system, combining the concreteness of the producer with the sensitivity of the curator to create new works of art in extra-ordinary contexts, NOS deals with the many aspects that make the work of art possible, taking care of human, cultural and operational relationships that invest the production of projects in specific contexts, from the conception phase to the realization phase.
