I-DEA

I-DEA is a project of Matera European Capital of Culture 2019 that explores the archives and collections of the Basilicata region from an artistic perspective.
Four artists and designers with research-based practices have been invited to guest curate five consecutive and overlapping exhibitions using the archive as a starting point. Drawing on seemingly disparate documents and materials, the artists were invited to delve into the archives and formulate their own readings in the form of temporary exhibitions.
The I-DEA project space will evolve throughout 2019 in the form of exhibitions, performances, workshops, publications, and a growing online platform.
As a member of Open Design School Matera I am responsible for the design of the exhibition.

Guest Curators:
Mario Cresci
Formafantasma
Navine Khan-Dossos & James Bridle
Liam Gillick
