RIVA Project 2018

Promoted by the MUS.E Association under the artistic direction of Valentina Gensini

In 2018, the RIVA Project resumed its collaboration with Pelago and Montelupo Fiorentino, involving both the historic centre and the outskirts of Florence. Its action paid special attention to environmental issues, as well as the economic, political, and social context. One of the principal events was Paolo Masi’s solo show QUI with a display of twelve new site-specific artworks produced during his six-month residency at MAD Murate Art District. Montelupo Fiorentino was the centre of activity for Yuval Avital and the ConFusion migrant choir directed by Benedetta Manfriani, for Tempo Reale and its Sentieri del silenzio (Paths of Silence) project carried out at the former psychiatric hospital, and for Radio Papesse with Storie dell’Arno a Montelupo (Histories of the Arno in Montelupo). The other town crossed by the Arno, Pelago, hosted photographer Davide Virdis (who presented an exhibit in a public space and held a workshop in collaboration with Fondazione Studio Marangoni) and Stud

The Murate Art District was the venue for lectures and Italian and English classes held by LWCircus and the Department of Architecture from the University of Florence. The 2018 edition of the RIVA Project opened to the Far East thanks to a partnership with Zhong Art International, and offered a residency at MAD to three Chinese artists, who were invited to provide their specific vision of the Arno River.

Progetto RIVA

Nell’autunno 2017 i fotografi Davide Virdis, Martino Marangoni e Giuseppe Toscano hanno elaborato un progetto originale per San Francesco, Comune di Pelago, e per Pontassieve. Il tema principale di questo lavoro era il rapporto tra il fiume Sieve e la comunità. Questo gruppo di ricerca ha prodotto un lavoro originale sul territorio tra Pelago e Pontassieve presentato durante la festa del patrono a Pelago-Pontassieve il 29 settembre 2018, in una esposizione pubblica delle fotografie prodotte. L’esposizione nello spazio pubblico, sui pannelli di affissione che permeano la dimensione urbana, viene proposta dunque in una dimensione di immediata e spontanea accessibilità. I tre autori hanno inoltre condotto un workshop sul campo con quattro giovani fotografe.

RIVA Project 2017

Promoted by the MUS.E Association under the artistic direction of Valentina Gensini

In 2017, RIVA launched a series of site-specific installations, workshops, exhibitions, and encounters that enjoyed the active participation of performers, visual artists, photographers, and sound artists invited to spend a period of residency in Tuscany with the goal of elaborating on new projects around the theme of the river. For the first time, the RIVA Project did not only touch on Florence but was extended to three other Tuscan towns crossed by the Arno: Pontassieve, Pelago, and Montelupo Fiorentino. Beginning with a reflection on the environmental and cultural heritage represented by the river and its bonds with the community and the territory, the artists involved in the Project (Davide Virdis, Katrinem, Adrian Paci, Radio Papesse, Studio ++) worked in these three towns collaborating with the local Councils and the communities to give rise to new artistic projects.

The project that RIVA 2017 focused on was a performance along the river, followed by an exhibit of Adrian Paci held in Florence and Pelago with the contribution of Museo Novecento and MAD Murate Art District, which displayed works by Adrian Paci associated with the theme of water as a metaphor of flow, movement, and migration. Berlin artist Katrinem was hosted in Montelupo Fiorentino for her residency under the curatorship of Tempo Reale, during which she performed and recorded her personal crossing of and ‘listening’ to the soundscape.
