With GRAND OPENING (Summer Rhapsody) KURA. opened in Milan on July 5, launching the exhibition program directed by CURA. in the historic premises of Fonderia Artistica Battaglia. Works by Mitchell Anderson, Davide Balula, Anna-Sophie Berger, Louis Fratino, Nancy Lupo, Mélanie Matranga, Caroline Mesquita, Adrien Missika, Martin Soto Climent and a site-specific intervention by Roberto Coda Zabetta, implemented the celebrating context of the exhibition.
KURA. is born from a misspelling of our magazine’s name. The pronunciation is the same, but the K represents the glitch, the element of novelty that bases its roots in the very idea of “spazio okkupato” (occupied space), that is also associated with the k in kunsthalle, without necessarily being one. It is the physical space and extension of CURA. which joins the programming of exhibitions already curated by Andrea Baccin and Ilaria Marotta, founding directors of the magazine, held in the premises of BASEMENT ROMA.
