EventArt and journalism. So near, so far away

Art and journalism. So near, so far away


The political, social and technological disruptions of our time continue with irrepressible speed. The narratives of traditional journalism are constantly evolving and forming hybrids between the printed page and the digital dimension. Daily newspapers seem to have taken on a function that is more a matter of commentary than of news. At the same time, in recent years the desire and ability of artists to narrate the present in real time, stimulating debate and reactions, seem to have grown. What relationship is taking form between art and journalism in this reciprocal evolution of identity? Can art, together with curating, approach journalism in order to rapidly respond to the unfolding of events? Is it a legitimate role, or is this power simply abdicated to art as a tool of thought that exerts its own influence? At the same time, can journalism look to artistic languages in order to reflect on its own position and on the creative ability to prompt reflections?

These questions at the centre of intense debate in the art world are considered in an extraordinary dialogue between curators and journalists selected by La Stampa.

Speakers:  FATMA BUCAK (Artist), JACOPO CRIVELLI VISCONTI (Independent curator and art critic, Sao Paulo), VALERIE DA COSTA (Art historian and critic, curator, Turin), IRINA ZUCCA ALESSANDRELLI (Curator of Collezione Ramo, Italian Drawing of the 20th and 21st centuries, and of the Disegni section of Artissima 2022).

Moderator:  NICOLAS LOZITO (Art Director, La Stampa)
