Giulia Colletti will represent UK in 'A Natural Oasis?'

Glasgow-based curator Giulia Colletti is the UK selected candidate to take part of ‘A Natural Oasis? A Transnational Research Programme’, two-year-long training and research program open to curators, art writers and cultural researchers, under 34 from Cyprus, Greece, San Marino and UK.

This nomadic free school is dedicated to the development of new curatorial research paths in the field of contemporary visual and performing arts, starting from the geopolitical peculiarities of the artistic scenes of those European territories, which are commonly considered insular or liminal. Together with the two senior curators Alessandro Castiglioni, Simone Frangi and six other participants, she will participate to the first seminar at Casino Palermo (in partnership with Viasaterna gallery), which has been included among the collateral events of Manifesta Biennial.

Giulia Colletti has recently integrated her academic education at The Glasgow School of Art with international residency programmes at ACSL (Art and Cultural Studies Laboratory) in Yerevan, Pandeo in Mexico City, and INDEX (The Swedish Contemporary Art Foundation) in Stockholm. On these occasions, the critical attempt consisted in familiarizing with specific geographical contexts, yet maintaining a wide-ranging perspective. A Natural Oasis? will offer the chance to strengthen her already established nomadic practice, while putting it in dialogue with a broader network. It will provide the time to investigate in situ, to intertwine suggestions coming from the five proposed paths, and to shed a new light on research strategies she might further adopt in her long-term project Falte, founded in 2017 to explore interstitial grammars and productive acts of emancipation. Giulia Colletti participation is kindly supported by UK Young Artists.

A Natural Oasis? is promoted and developed by BJCEM – Biennale of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean; UK Young Artists; Ministry of Education and Culture, Department of Tourism and Culture, Cultural Institutes – San Marino National Gallery, San Marino University; Ministry of Education and Culture, Cultural Service of Cyprus; Ministry of Culture, Education and Religious Affairs, General Secretariat for Life Long Learning & Youth Directorate for Youth Culture and Social Participation Department of Greece.
