Spring 2023 exhibitions at Istituto Svizzero

Spring 2023

Istituto Svizzero presents its exhibition program for spring 2023.

Caterina De Nicola
February 24–April 16, 2023

Istituto Svizzero, Via del Vecchio Politecnico 3, Milano
Opening February 23

Caterina De Nicola (b. 1991 in Ortona, Italy, lives and works in Zurich) employs fiction, writing, sound, and object examination in her practice, as well as an exploration of symbols and motifs and their circulation in a larger cultural system. She creates a new series of sculptures, drawings, and a performance for her solo exhibition in Milan, relating to the idea of the glitch, or an inversion of functions, to questions of how to break with traditional ideas and concepts in the present, or to the presence of female artists in the context of noise music.

Klodin Erb
March 24–July 16, 2023

Istituto Svizzero, Via Ludovisi 48, Roma
Opening March 23

Klodin Erb’s (b. 1963 in Winterthur, Switzerland, lives and works in Zurich) artistic practice has focused on the medium of painting in a free and experimental way since the late 1990s. In a unique way, her body of work, which includes paintings, sculptures, installations, and videos, questions the limits and possibilities of painting. The artist, who was awarded the prestigious Prix Meret Oppenheim in 2022, is producing a site-specific display of new and existing works in the spaces of Istituto Svizzero in Rome for her first solo exhibition in Italy. The exhibition is complemented by an artist book, co-published with Mousse Publishing.

Gritli Faulhaber & Costanza Candeloro
May 5–June 30, 2023
Istituto Svizzero, Via del Vecchio Politecnico 3, Milano
Opening May 4

Gritli Faulhaber (b. 1990 in Freiburg i. B./Germany, lives and works in Zurich) and Costanza Candeloro are both budding artists (b. 1990 in Bologna, Italy, lives and works in Milan). Gritli Faulhaber mostly works with paintings, whilst Costanza Candeloro’s practice includes videos and sculptures, with both sharing an interest in adolescent culture and its writings in books and fanzines. The two artists are creating new pieces that engage in a reciprocal discourse for the Milan exhibition.

The Istituto Svizzero serves as an integrative venue for artistic and scientific research. It promotes connections between Switzerland and Italy, as well as internationally, from Rome, Milan, or Palermo. The Istituto Svizzero provides residencies to aspiring artists and scholars who want to make a difference in the fields of art, science, and innovation. Every year, the Institute hosts a public program to promote forward-thinking events and projects, experimental methods, and research excellence. Istituto Svizzero aspires to actively participate in the worldwide dialogue on arts and society, imagining new avenues and going beyond disciplinary borders.
