Guido Bettinsoli is a multidisciplinary web developer and designer based in Brescia and Milan. He works with brands and agencies to build digital experiences through a neverending dialogue between beauty and innovation.

Since 2010 the aim of Arteco has been to study and enhance Italian cultural heritage starting from cataloging and digitising campaigns; to creating networks for collaborations between public and private organisations; promoting contemporary art research and generating a network aimed at an audience of experts. It also supports a new generation of artists, identifying them as essential to the renewal of today’s society.

Starting from Arteco’s dualistic identity we designed and developed a content centered website. The highly intuitive user experience quickly drives the web-flow to the desired material through two main sliding information menus, clear typography and gallery layouts.

His practice develops at the threshold between digital gauziness and physical materiality. He is interested in incompleteness and circularity, duplication, strata, waste, layering, shifts in context, forgery, faux-real. His work has been showed in: Scholes (NYC), Pastificio Cerere (Rome), Istituto Svizzero (Milan), Operativa arte contemporanea (Rome), Live Arts Week, MAMbo (Bologna) and Bio Awake curated and produced by Siliqoon at Tesco (Faenza). In 2013 he has been artist in residence at Viafarini, Milan. Upcoming projects include solo show Angelo Azzurro at #0000FF and U+29DC aka Documento Continuo an artist book and a research into that contemporary zeitgeist that has been labeled post-internet, co-published by Link Editions and Viafarini; a textual and visual collage strongly relying on appropriation as the only possible way to draw your own path through the information overload. Lives and works in Milan.

Founded in 1974, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève is a place for exhibition, discussion and reflection on contemporary art. A pioneer and reference institution on the Swiss and international art scene, the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève raises the major issues of our time.

A space for research and experimentation, the Centre presents to all audiences ambitious projects, often produced for the occasion, involving all fields of contemporary practice: installation, music, painting, performance, photography, photography, sculpture, dance, drawing or video art, with a unique program of events and projections within its Cinema Dynamo and the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement as its high point.

The Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement was founded in 1985 in Geneva and was reinvented in 2014 as a platform for producing new works. A unique hybrid event—at the crossroads of a film festival, a plethora of solo exhibitions, performances and a platform for research and production—the BIM brings together visual artists, performers, musicians and filmmakers. The latter engage in a dialogue with the curators throughout the production process of a new work, financed or co-financed by the Centre and premiering in Geneva. The Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement in Geneva has therefore become a full-fledged production platform, with each edition presenting only new works.

The 2018 edition of the Biennale de l’Image en Mouvement, The Sound of Screens Imploding, curated by Andrea Bellini, Director of the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, and Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator, International Art (Film) at Tate Modern, has been transformed into an innovative project. At its center—alongside an extraordinary series of films, performances, and concerts—is an exhibition designed to form a single, vast, immersive environment. The concept for the show, which covered over 2,000 square meters, revolved around a fundamental principle: that moving images now live outside the screen, lingering on in a fascinating kaleidoscope where vision can be shaped even by sound.

Emphasizing the innovative potential of new languages connected to the moving image, the 2018 Biennale forged an intense dialogue with a generation of artists from a wide range of countries and backgrounds.

Andrea Magnani

magnaniandrea.com

Andrea Magnani (1983) lives and works in Milan. His research delves into meaning-making processes, staging the overlapping of order and generative tensions. In his meticulously constructed environments, the viewer is haunted by a distilled reality where uncanny yet familiar objects participate in a sensual balancing act. Whether being unreadable drawings, “fake readymades” or non-spectacular performances, the dialogue among every part of a work aids to evoke non-verbal feelings. Erosive ambiences, where the boundary between reality (authenticity) and representation (art) is constantly shifting. Andrea has exhibited and performed in public and private spaces, including: INTERSTATE Projects, Marsèlleria (New York), Kai Art Center (Tallinn), Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, PAV, Giorgio Galotti, Archivio di Stato (Turin), T293, Fondazione Baruchello, Villa Farinacci promoted by MAXXI museum (Rome), Live Arts Week at MAMbo(Bologna), Italienska Kulturinstitutet (Stockholm), Stanford Housing (London), Can Serrat (Barcelona), Bevilacqua La Masa (Venice), Marsèlleria, O’, Viafarini, Crepaccio, Mars (Milan).

Galleria Massimo Minini is one of the most established contemporary art galleries in Italy, playing an important role in the contemporary art scene. Initially under the name Banco, for nearly 50 years the gallery has been collaborating with conceptual, arte povera, minimal and figurative artists, including Anish Kapoor, Vanessa Beecroft, Daniel Buren and Haris Epaminonda.

For Galleria Massimo Minini Siliqoon developed a scroll-based website featuring a variable font, in turn creating an online liquid identity. The typeface morphs as you scroll the exhibition timebar, from Maxmin Sans Serif – which we built from the open font Tex Gyre Heros – into font Simoncini Garamond – a version of the antique font Garamond, redesigned by Francesco Simoncini in 1958.

The website was especially designed to incorporate the gallery’s extensive exhibition archive; Compiling hundreds of shows and off site projects, dating back to 1973, thus requiring clear archive access and effortless content transitions facilitated by the clever use of scroll – the fonts mutate, flowing with the progression of history, with hidden special content updated on a monthly basis, for those who look with a keen eye.

Siliqoon started its collaboration with the independent art fair Dama in early 2019, to interpret the graphic identity of the yearly edition. Each year a different international emergent artist is selected and invited by us to transform the Dama logotype according to their research.

Dama is an independent and collaborative project taking place in a historical palace based in the centre of Turin. The launch edition was presented during the 2016 art week with a selection of international galleries and artists. Inspired by Le città invisibili, a novel by Italo Calvino published in 1972, Dama aims to provide the visitors, the participating galleries and the artists a privileged and intimate environment dedicated to a meaningful dialogue between contemporary art practices and the city of Turin.
