Commercial Road Project, a series of exhibitions curated by Cura.magazine in collaboration with The Cass


Current and Forthcoming Events

Cass joins forces with Cura for exhibition series at Commercial Road

Cura.magazine in collaboration with The Cass, London Metropolitan University and a network of Roman galleries present Commercial Road Project. From October 2011 to October 2012, five emerging international artists will alternate their work, presenting new and site-specific works in the display window of the University’s Commercial Road Window. The artists have been invited to re-interpret the publicly visible area in the window, transforming every work into part of an out-and-out public art project. A catalogue edited by cura.books, with the critical essays and the photographic documentation of the five projects will be published at the end of the five events cycle, on November 2012.

The participating artists are Andrea Sala (IT), Per-Oskar Leu (N), Jesse Ash (UK), William Cobbing (UK) and Pennacchio Argentato (IT). The galleries from Rome supporting the initiative are Federica Schiavo Gallery, 1/9 unosunove, Monitor, Furini Arte Contemporanea and T293 . CURA. is a curatorial project that revolves around the production of a quarterly magazine (cura.magazine), a publishing house (cura.books) and a space (cura.space), through which it investigates the contemporary artistic production and promotes the most actual developments of the emerging practice, thanks to the collaboration with international artists and curators, the production of artists books, limited editions, exhibition projects and curatorial cons.
