OUT 44 • Temporay Desk @Careof
Studio visit program
1.11.2015 — 31.03.2016
To embrace and confront the youngest art scene of Milan and to provide an important advisory service for young artists, Careof invited the curatorial collective OUT44 of Brera to reside at the DOCVA on alternate days of the week, from November 2015 to March 2016.
A temporary desk open for individuals and group visits, presentations and readings of artist's portfolios, in order to facilitate the exchange between the newest generations of artists and curators and rethink the models of archiving, presentation and mediation.
Study visits must be scheduled by writing an email to
The collective receives every Wednsday from 10am to 2pm and every Tuesday morning.
With Brera Academy of Fine arts as a starting point, the course of curatorial practices as a fixed point and the classroom 44 as a meeting point, we – 12 students from all over Italy – approached each other to form the collective OUT44, emphasizing immediately the desire to draw on what the Academy could offer and then look outwards. A group of people with completely different experiences has thus consolidated: from History to Design, from Art History to Foreign Languages, from Architecture to Communication and Scenography. A comprehensive definition of the group is perhaps premature, both due to the recent formation and to the will to respect the individuality of the components, which we consider to be our true distinctive character.
A functional choice by which, mantaining the inclinations of the individual, we effectively cover the various roles required by the curatorship, a practice that has turned out to be not only the conception of an exhibition and the selection of works to be included in it, but also the management of the budget, respect for bureaucratic quibbles and the construction of an effective communication plan.
OUT44 is: Giulia Bassoli, Miriam Calabrese, Giorgio Cellini, Camilla Garelli, Gianluca Gramolazzi, Eugenio Martino Nesi, Chiara Peru, Elisabetta Rastelli, Giulia Ronchi, Marta Ruffatto, Martina Sacchi, Stefano Spairani Righi.
