The Importance Of Being Context extended until October 3

Link Cabinet is happy to announce that the exhibition The Importance of Being Context by Valeria Mancinelli and Roberto Fassone, currently hosted on our website, has been extended due to popular demand until October 3, 2014. From September 27 to October 3, you will be able to access all the three screenings in which the exhibition is organized: MOVING, TOUCHING, FEELING.




The Importance Of Being Context is the result of a collaboration between curator Valeria Mancinelli and artist Roberto Fassone. The web project is an online archive that collects the result of their activity of the last few years collecting documentation of well known art performances, mainly from the 60’s and the 70’s. The work is an open invitation to think about performance, its proximity to daily life, the importance of the artistic context in turning a simple action into an art work, the uncanny valley between art performance’s protocols and popular games. The exhibition has been organized in a series of three screenings titled MOVING, TOUCHING, FEELING, each of them on view for one week.


Valeria Mancinelli is a contemporary art curator. Since 2008 she is part of the independent space for contemporary arts S.a.L.E. Docks and co-founder of the project Trial Version. She has curated different exhibitions in Venice, Florence and Milan. Roberto Fassone makes works that explore and question the notion of art and games, the processes regulating them both, and the relationship between the two.


Link Cabinet is the Link Art Center’s online exhibition space: a single web page hosting solo shows where artists exhibit a single, site-specific artwork. Conceived as a white and neutral exhibition space with an essential interface, Link Cabinet is a blank page that will be transformed by the works on display. After the show, the projects won’t be available on the site anymore.


This project is realized in the framework of Masters & Servers, a joint project by Aksioma (SI), Drugo more (HR), Abandon Normal Devices (UK), Link Art Center (IT) and d-i-n-a / The Influencers (ES) that was recently awarded with a Creative Europe 2014 – 2020 grant. For 24 months from now, Masters & Servers will explore networked culture in the post-digital age.
