ENCOUNTERS: CINEMA AND CONTEMPORARY ART | UGO NESPOLO
On the occasion of its 40th edition – to be held from March 26 to April 3 – Bergamo Film Meeting renews the collaboration with The Blank Contemporary Art through the section called ENCOUNTERS: CINEMA AND CONTEMPORARY ART, which this year features as protagonist Ugo Nespolo, one of the most significant interpreters of contemporary languages and styles.
Over the course of his career, Ugo Nespolo has dabbled with different forms of audiovisual imaginary, creating short films from the beginning of the neo-avant-garde season of the 1960s.
On Saturday, March 26 at 3.00 pm at the Capitol Cinema, the artist will retrace over forty years of research and experimentation through a selection of video works that have marked his career.
Complemented by a talk with art critic and scholar Bruno Di Marino, the event will be translated into LIS – Italian Sign Language. Free admission.
