I will be joining Asolo Art Film Festival in collaboration with Steve Bisson, for its 31th edition I'll curate a few exhibition design about russian artists.
AsoloArtFilmFestival origins date back to 1973 when, by Flavia Paulon intuition and foresight of a local government decided to support the cultural revival of the town, the Film Festival on Art and Artists’ Biographies was born in Asolo and was soon designed to become since the first edition, one of the most important reviews of Films on the world. The selection was so strict and the level so high that within a few editions the prestige of the Festival was known throughout the world. In fact if you scroll the list of over four hundred titles of films that have contributed during the first ten years, you can find names of famous artists or directors such as Alain Resnais, Andrei Tarkovsky, Jean Rouch, Henri Stork, Luciano Emmer, George Treves, Plessi, Gaetano Pesce, Luca Verdone. The Festival started being qualified since the first edition, giving the Grand Prix Asolo to Tarkovsky’s film Andrej Rubliov on the life of the famous Russian miniaturist, author of some of the finest miniatures of the fifteenth century.
