Fondazione Merz


A meeting with the curator_Dipartimento Educazione

14 December 2021 at 5 pm


The Education Department of the Fondazione Merz is organising a meeting for students of the Accademia Albertina in Turin with Mariano Boggia, curator of the current exhibition, “Marisa and Mario Merz. La punta della matita può eseguire un sorpasso di coscienza” (‘A pencil point can surpass consciousness’),

The meeting is intended to stress the exhibition’s intention to be an immersive experience in the daily activities of the two artists and will take place in the form of a workshop.
Starting with an individual visit to the exhibition and a personal contact with the works on display, a discussion will be initiated to verify with the curator how possible it is, in an exhibition space, to set up a show able to reproduce the creative atmosphere of Marisa and Mario Merz’s home-studios.

The event inaugurates Spore, a series of initiatives dedicated to the students of the Accademia di Belle Arti  to activate generative actions of new forms of relationship between a museum space and a space dedicated to artistic training.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is required by writing to
