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).
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.
