Base

Base

BASE is a non-profit cultural association established in the spring of 1998 by a group of artists in Florence.

The primary idea of BASE is to provide a space which is open to the most significant of contemporary Italian and international Art practice, to present the works of artists in a dialectic of sign and language which seek to maintain an open dialogue of ideas concerning contemporary culture.

BASE was initially set-up and supported by an open group of artists, but in the longer term it aims to involve a wider circle of arts-related individuals; scholars, critics, collectors and friends by way of participation and support for the association’s activities. BASE will thus be perceived as an essential point of exchange of information and experience, part of a collective cultural inheritance available to all.

BASE presents exhibitions, projects, debates and dialogues, providing a variety of interpretations and perspectives on the more interesting issues occurring in contemporary Art and culture.

CANGO

CANGO

Cango is an innovative centre dedicated to the languages of the body and to the contemporary arts. During the course of the last century, the historic building that now hosts Cango, has been the base for the theatrical activity of Gordon Craig, Tadeusz Kantor and Vittorio Gassman.  Today, after a restoration lasting more than 20 years, the Florence City Council has entrusted the space to Virgilio Sieni as a space of creation.

CANGO, thanks to the functionality and elasticity of empty spaces, completely adapted and equipped to hold performance practice, is the permanent base of organisation and production for the Compagnia Virgilio Sieni, where activity includes the presentation of work-in-progess and training for young dancers and the public.  CANGO is also an open meeting point for the international and Italian artists who are its periodic guests; it is not a container for events: rather is an observatory of the most current and exciting processes of artistic development.  It promotes an ongoing encounter between artists and the public, working towards the creation of a permanent forum for a sustained and varied contemporary culture.

Estate Fiorentina

Estate Fiorentina

A system of services for everyone who experiences Florence – residents and tourists, young people and families, senior citizens and little kids. A cultural initiative that promotes urban production and connects it to the big and small events that choose Florence as their display case each year. A focus on local creative strengths, especially innovative ones that act as incentives for network projects, and a desire to introduce and discover new places in the city through events; work involving spaces where culture and administration come together to solidify the foundations of this system of services. In 2012 this method was integrated with a highly anticipated programme that, in accordance with the operators involved, facilitated the hosting of concerts by Springsteen, Madonna, and Radiohead and the opening of the appealing and promising new Cavea del Teatro dell’Opera to artists like Morrissey and Alanis Morissette.

Fondazione Targetti

Fondazione Targetti

A face-off between lighting designers from Paris and an Icelandic artist; a duel between an engineer from Tokyo and an American trendsetter; watching architects test themselves in an unusually playful realtionship with light and its ability to accompany or overturn volumes and designs in space; see artist become enthusiastic about the physical properties of lighting fixtures - all this and more takes place in the workshop of ideas, at the Fondazione Targetti.

Established to promote, support and develop the culture of light, art and architecture, Fondazione Targetti is a point of meeting, integration, and cultural exchange for specific skills, in order to share the knowledge from individual research channels and establish a network of excellence capable of offering a precious opportunity for professional enrichment. To this end, training courses, cultural events, conventions, conferences, seminars, debates, roundtables and working meetings are organized and attended by internationally renowned figures.

The Osservatorio sull’Architettura was established as a series of meetings for monitoring, surveying and analysing the processes connected to the intricacies of contemporary architecture and the related complex urban phenomena. The relationship between the client and the architect, the role of utopia in the history of architecture, the relationship between art and architecture, architecture as a language are some of the topics that have been discussed during the series of meetings that have been carried out since 2004 under the direction of the architect Pino Brugellis.

Fosca

Fosca

Fosca was founded in 2006 and became a cultural association in February 2008. The Fosca project is being constantly redefined and aims to create spaces for exploring and reflecting on contemporary culture through performance and visual art. Fosca is a set of collaborations and experiences with constantly changing themes, languages, territories and disciplinary fields. It is a mental space that manifests itself in concrete actions, artistic research and the study of languages of contemporaneity; a project of artistic creation, production and promotion of shows, workshops, events, moments of study, exhibitions, publications and radio broadcasts. Fosca’s original creative intention was to revisit the artist’s role within the social fabric and in authentic relational encounters between people. Behind this attempt is the ethical and political conviction that there is a fundamental need, especially in contemporary society, to create places where one can still have experiences, traverse meanings, and arrive at consciousness in different ways and formats. There is clearly a forward-focussed need to move from a physical fulcrum –already an archaeology and a mental space – and to project, resound, and launch artistic processes through which communities – the stratifications of our contemporary situation – can reflect on themselves. In the duration of another time and in the proposed space, Fosca finds generative possibilities that feel modern and relate to change, disruption and access to the new; a horizontal diffusion between public and private, intimate and declared, ordinary and extraordinary, work and play.

Kinkaleri

Kinkaleri

Kinkaleri was given birth in 1995; joining their previous experiences and studies worked out in various fields, the six components agree with the intention of realizing specific projects, spurring the will to operate and to deal with actual ideas, and always in charge of all the aspects about the creations of their line: planning, conceiving, dramaturgy, distribution, management. Such a dynamic nature of the company has let Kinkaleri follow a route of artistic growth necessary to find and bring to ripeness a personal creative line, achieving important acknowledgments in the Italian and the foreign scene of contemporary art and performance, Kinkaleri as an experimental group of a new generation.

The absolutely original structure, both the organizational set and the particular artistic production, provides the essential coordinates to the will of creation that drives it: to subject to tension the representative relation between the object and the field it refers to (or should refer to). The choreographic research has always been meant as a means inside a system looking for a quality that prefers the change, the interaction of original languages through the experimentation of different modes of display. Due to its nature, the productive and creative course of Kinkaleri has always found its development by means of varied itineraries - plays, performances, installations, video-making, sonorizations, stage settings, publications - hosted by contemporary art museums, theatres, festivals, dance and theatre exhibitions, video contests and exhibitions, sound installations, discotheques, television creations.

Krypton/Teatro Studio

Krypton/Teatro Studio

Krypton’s presence at the Teatro Studio in Scandicci was initially an interpretation of the demands and needs of the city 'under development' which Scandicci was at the time: an urban area adjacent to the historic city of Florence, called on to compete with the kind of energies demanded by today’s world, and often circumvented by the city of art due to the inevitable and questionable propensity for conservation. The basic idea of the Krypton/Teatro Studio project has helped to characterize the identity of a new city, ahead of its time and providing a model for many centres of contemporary culture.

To date, this theatre on the outskirts has seized every opportunity to explore the new performing arts, seeking young talent, which has led to the creation of the Zoom exhibition. Krypton’s interdisciplinary and multi-lingual passion could not spend itself in the privileged relationship with the theatrical idioms. Hence the frequent collaborations with some of the greatest interpreters of the culture and idioms of our time.

Museo Marino Marini

Museo Marino Marini

The Marino Marini Museum which occupies the former San Pancrazio’s church in Florence, houses 182 works of art by Marino Marini (1901-1980) - sculptures, paintings, drawings and engravings - and promotes a calendar of events and exhibition devoted to contemporary artists, from the twentieth century until the most recent productions and themes.

The collection is not arranged in a chronological order but thematically - the themes themselves are arranged not by iconographical representation, but rather by a state of mind - focuses around the large equestrian sculpture from the hague (1957-58) that stands at the center of the former liturgical space and is illuminated by natural light coming from the great absidal window. Marino marini considered natural light to be necessary in reading his own work. this principle is fully adopted and used in the museum: each piece has different possible points-of-view and the idea of “putting the artwork on a stand” – a concept so alien to marini’s poetics – is avoided.

Musicus Concentus

Musicus Concentus

On may 19th, 1992, Lester Bowie’s Brass Fantasy opened the 'Tradizione in Movimento' programme, playing at Teatro della Compagnia. Since that time, Musicus Concentus has offered a detailed survey of the most interesting aspects of contemporary scene.

All the work that has been carried out over the last years has enabled musicus concentus to discover and watch, step by step, the evolution of some of today’s most inspired artists. Most of them have been repeatedly invited to present any projects that could prove their artistic development.

Beside the attention focused on the exponents of american and european jazz - viewed as moving tradition and constantly changing music - Musicus Concentus has taken into consideration also other musical expressions ranging from european classical music to ethnic traditions and electronic music, so as to define an original programme drawing the very best from today’s music.

Pitti Discovery

Pitti Discovery

Pitti Immagine Discovery was officially formed on 9 April 1999. The intention of Pitti Immagine was to create, in Florence, a place in which to concentrate attention on the most stimulating research going on in contemporary expressive languages. This was the beginning of a unique experience, under the direction of Francesco Bonami: not a gallery, not a museum, not a collection, but a laboratory in which to experiment with the capacity of a company to make a contribution to a city and its cultural life in a clear, precise way.


The Foundation has the objective of independently promoting exhibitions and publishing initiatives involving the interaction of fashion, the visual arts, cinema, photography, advertising, architecture and music. In other words, the task is to shed light on the most innovative artistic phenomena, from which fashion can draw material for design, and for which fashion itself is, to an increasing extent, material for reflection, motivation, production.

Since 2008 The Pitti Discovery Foundation collaborate with the Osservatorio per le arti contemporanee.

Senzacornice | Laboratorio di ricerca e formazione per l’arte contemporanea

Senzacornice | Laboratorio di ricerca e formazione per l’arte contemporanea

Senzacornice | Research and Education Lab for Contemporary Art, conceived and coordinated by Alessandra Acocella e Caterina Toschi aims to combine pure research and academic education with their applied meaning linked with the Florentine institutional context of museums, exhibition centres and events of contemporary art. Composed of young scholars and Ph.D. candidates, the Lab aspires to deal with the main actors of the institutional art scene to create a new active system of services (national and international conferences, workshops, cataloguing and digitization of archives, educational activities, virtual stories, historical-artistic itineraries, etc.) aimed at promoting and diffusing the contemporary artistic culture of Florence and Tuscany. The digital platform collects the results of the Lab projects, thus stimulating the development of future plans focused on contemporary art in Tuscany, in Italy and abroad. One of the main purposes of the digital platform is to map the archives and library collections related to contemporary art constituted in Florence and Tuscany since 1950s. The objective is to value, promote and diffuse the patrimony of contemporary art of the Tuscan territory to divulge and make accessible online through an innovative tool that preserves the memory and experiments a new methodology of scientific research and education in light of the Web potential and its connectivity and visibility.

In September 2014 the Association Senzacornice has been selected by the Incubatore Universitario Fiorentino (IUF) to evolve in an entrepreneurial form the project of the Lab of Research and Education for Contemporary Art through tutoring and training activities in the innovative and technological sectors.

Senzacornice is currently working with the project Piccoli Grandi Musei. Toscana ‘900 promoted by Regione Toscana and Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze.

Teatro della Limonaia

Teatro della Limonaia

The Teatro della Limonaia is located inside the Villa Corsi Salviati in the Municipality of Sesto Fiorentino, a cultured suburb of Florence. The old lemon greenhouse became a theatre in 1987 when the Compagnia Laboratorio Nove, led by Silvano Panichi, took over the space under the artistic direction of Barbara Nativi. Dimitri Milopulos has run the theatre since June 2005. The support of the Municipality of Sesto Fiorentino led to the creation of Intercity, an international festival connecting Florence to the world’s capitals: New York (1988), Moscow (1989), Stockholm (1990), Budapest (1991), Montreal (1992 e 1993), Madrid (1994), Lisbon (1995), London (1996 and 1997), Paris (1998 and 1999), Berlin (2000 and 2001), Athens (2002 and 2003), Sao Paulo (2004), Edinburgh (2005), and Toronto (2006).
Founded during the reign of the so-called teatro d'immagine  (“image theatre”), Intercity helped bring the Italian public’s attention back to new international dramaturgy by translating and presenting over 80 new films and introducing directors like Kane, Chaurette, Lagarce, Ravenhill, Ridley, Belbel, Dubois, Crimp, Gomez, Garcia, Butterworth, Tremblay, Bouchard, Bukowsky, Von Mayenburg, Gieselemann, Walzer, and Dimitriadis. The films have screened both in Italy and abroad (France, Canada, Hungary, Soviet Union). In 2000 festival organisers hosted an international conference on Sarah Kane to which they invited European directors who have staged her works.

Teatro della Pergola

Teatro della Pergola

Florence’s Teatro della Pergola is one of Italy’s oldest and most historic theatres. Erected in 1656 by Ferdinando Tacca (son of sculptor Pietro Tacca), it was the first theatre with superimposed stage boxes (an “Italian-style theatre”). Previous to the Pergola, architects had always followed the ancient tradition of using sloping semi-circular terraces (like in Vicenza’s Olympic Theatre). The acoustics-friendly oval shape was also applied here for the first time. Today the Pergola is much more than just a theatre; it is a lively cultural centre that uses its history and the prestige of its spaces as the main sources of its potential. Its multifunctional operation culminates in the great theatre season but also hosts hundreds of other important events. A ritual is carried out each night: that of the spectacle. It is the Pergola’s calling to host the great productions, the great works by the greatest writers, the great actors, and the great directors. In September 2011 the Fondazione Teatro della Pergola took over the management of the historic theatre from MIBAC (Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities).
Musicus Concentus presents Tradizione In Movimento (Tradition in Movement), a programme of concerts that are rich and complex in terms of both the music and the venues, which include some of the most picturesque and prestigious locales in the city.

Tempo Reale

Tempo Reale

Founded by Luciano Berio in 1987, Tempo Reale is now one of the main European reference points for research, production and educational activities in the field of new musical technologies. Since its foundation the center has been committed to the production of Berio’s works, working on the most prestigious stages in the world.

The main subjects of research reflect the polyhedral attitude of Tempo Reale towards music: the conception of great musical events, the study of real time sound processing and interaction between sound and space, the synergy between creativity, scientific competence, performative and educational rigour. Events, meetings and projects developed at a local level regularly come alongside the research activities in this areas. On such occasions the center cooperates with the main institutions of Tuscany, both in the field of music, theatre and dance, and in the promotion of a tight net of educational experiences

Tusciaelecta

Tusciaelecta

 

Tusciaelecta is a public art event designed to create a model for redefining the landscape and urban fabric by bringing contemporary works of art to Chianti in order to create a meaningful relationship between specially created works of art and the area that hosts them.

The intent is to create site-specific works as social interaction, communication and passage points, conceived to break the routine of daily life and, with their presence, to offer alternatives to the stereotypical Tuscan 'postcard' landscape image, and inviting, along with aesthetic observation, active and diverse experiences and visits.

Since the 2005/2006 biennial, Tusciaelecta has initiated a process of redefining their goals. In the belief that it is necessary to foster a growing interaction between the works and the areas that host them, the exhibition started to focus increasingly on permanent site-specific works: the interventions were sometimes less showy but always supported by a strong integration with the territory, a choice that has not only definitely encouraged the encounter with a specialized public, but also, gradually, that of the inhabitants.

Villa Romana

Villa Romana

 

Villa Romana is a centre for the production of contemporary art and international exchange. Only ten minutes from downtown Florence, it combines the tranquillity of a large garden with the reality of a large urban centre.

The Premio Villa Romana (Fellowship) is the oldest German award for artists. Since 1905 it has been awarded each year to artists working in Germany. Its goal is to offer leading artists the opportunity to devote themselves entirely to the evolution of their idiom during a residence in Florence. The winners of the residency receive a scholarship and have the use of a studio and apartment inside the villa. The winners of the Premio Villa Romana are chosen by a specially appointed jury every year. Through exhibitions, meetings with international guests and a wide range of initiatives, Villa Romana continues today to pursue a close dialogue with the artists and the public, in an international artistic setting, and promotes communication with the cultures of the Mediterranean. In Florence, a city full of historic artistic masterpieces, Villa Romana provides a forum for contemporary art open to dialogue with international partners.
