Focusing on the relationship between art and the public sphere in a state of cultural nomadism, Zecchi’s long-term research is the culmination of months of conversations with artists, Institutions, and communities across the city. Seeking to explore the fragile relationship between these two entities and its legacy, his research has so far investigated topics such as the activism (Fabbrica del Vapore, Milan); the role that artists, curators, and Institutions perform in the contemporary society at large (Residency Unlimited, New York); the topic of the language (New Art Exchange, Nottingham) and the topic of the architecture and urbanism (PIVȎ Pesquisa, São Paulo, BRA). Informed by the discourse, the outcome it’s been always different.
