Dr. Vittorio Urbani, Director of Nuova Icona, in conversation with grunt gallery Director Glenn Alteen will discuss the work of two artists present in Venice this Summer: Falvio Favelli with an independently funded installation, and Giorgio Andreotta Calò, part of the Italian Pavilion in the current 57th Venice Biennale.
Urbani will use the two exhibition and his own experience of curator and manager in the Biennials of Venice and Istanbul, to talk about the value of larger exhibitions in relationship to smaller international collaborations within the context of globalism and the local.

Vittorio Urbani, an independent curator and manager of contemporary art projects based in Venice, Italy, has been organizing contemporary exhibitions and curating art books and catalogues since 1993 as director of the non-profit organization Nuova Icona – associazione culturale per le arti.
