2 STATEMENT Associazione E was established in 2004 thanks to the joint efforts of Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano. The core of the couple opens itself to relational dimensions different every time, which lead to a work sensitive to the impersonal. Listening, the gift, the invitation and the proxy are the principals on which a series of collective artistic operations are founded. Through a discovery of new forms of patronage, the artistic and curatorial practice converge one into the other, and a policy of the project takes precedence over those of the individual works and authors. SHORT BIOGRAPHY Invited to the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris in 2008, Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano subsequently initiated as curators their own residency programs: Spot studio dal vivo, promoted by the Venice City Hall (2010), and Mirroring, supported by the Emirates Foundation (2011). During the same period, they were also included in the curatorial team of Art Enclosures, a project for implementing African artists mobility instituted by the Fondazione di Venezia. In 2010 Associazione E was selected for taking part to the Cultural Enterprise Management Training Course promoted by the Pistoletto Foundation and the Santagata Center. After participating to Miltos Manetas 2nd Internet Pavilion for the 54th Venice Biennale, the curatorial duo directed A special day, a one-year workshop about queer memories funded by the National Department for Equal Opportunities and culminated in the exhibition Io, Tu, Lui, Lei at the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation in Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano lectured at Ca Foscari University, IUAV University, FAI (Vicenza) and MACRO (Rome) amongst others and collaborated with institutions and foundations such as the Swiss Institute of Rome, Fondazione March, Nuova Icona, Fondazione Giorgio Cini Onlus, Les Rencontres, Alliance Française - Ile de France. Before presenting Caronte #1 - L Ile flottante at the Sinopale 4 - International Sinop Biennial, Associazione E contributed to Collecting the Future - Arts and Culture As A Catalyser For Urban Development, Sinop (TK).

4 SINOPALE 4: L Ile Flottante International Sinop Biennial, Sinop, Tk, The IV Sinop Biennale features the work of more than 30 artists from all over the world, probing the obscurities of knowledge. Wisdom of Shadow: Art in the Era of Corrupted Information as a concept was the idea of the curator Isin Onol and was critically complemented by Aslı Çetinkaya, Elke Falat, Dimitrina Sevova, Janet Kaplan, Sean Kelly, Beral Madra, Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano (Associazione E). The Italian curatorial duo presents Caronte #1 L Ile Flottante a project by the artist Francesco Bertelé with Eddie Spanier. L Ile flottante is a sometimes dangerous, artistic collaboration, which take place between the shores of the Black Sea, in some parts of the city of Sinop the birth place of Diogene the Cynic and will remain in the memories of inhabitants and visitors. The Italian team, guided by Francesco Bertelé, built up a floating monument that appears in the open sea. This Ile Flottante (floating isle) resembles an ancient salvaged stone artefact emerging from the waters, and miraculously, not sinking. Thanks to an ancient Etrurian technique for cooking clay, the discovery challenges the seascape s gravity, erecting itself in a vertical position and floating on the surface of the water. With the help of Sinop s sailormen and their ships, l Ile Flottante is now installed on the bank of the sea most exposed to unpredictable squalls. Here the swimmers often think they are bathing in a paradise, but actually their lives are tragically put at risk by the sea s current. Once positioned, the clay mass then fulfils the main function of every monument: that of remembrance, oscillating between signs of danger, paying homage to the fallen, witness to an adventure, unexplainable apparition. It will be an iridescent, living symbol of contemporary mythology. It is not only the direct involvement of locals that contributes to the creation of legendary memories, but also the perceptible spread of sight and sound feeding the collective imagination. A special advertising campaign was diffused indeed in public spaces of the city. A billboard and more than 50 posters transformed Sinop in an outdoors blog. Speakers around the city, newspapers, radios, the internet and word of mouth broadcast tales and testimonies which are channelled as part of the dry land promotion element of the project: L Ile Flottante Headquarters. Recalling robberies, relic swaps and forgeries that occurred many centuries ago between the Ottoman Empire and the modern European countries, this artistic operation is located right in the corrupted information era. Nevertheless fiction is not predominant, but rather the honest misunderstanding of reality, which we find at the foundation of every story. The project is supported by DEMO/MOVIN UP 2012 by Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and GAI.
5 Avrebbero potuto prendere il volo. Prima ancora di salire in aeroplano. Ognuno nel suo tronco di vento, agitati da un enorme phone per capelli. Se solo si fossero riempiti d aria. Se l avessero incorporata, come l albume o come la panna. Di isola in isola. Isole in isole. In cerca di un abbandono. Fluttuare, scendere, flottare, afondare. Un po morire, per non cadere. They might have flown away. Even before getting the plane. Everyone in its stream of wind, waved by an enormous hairdrier. If only had they filled in with air. Had they whipped it in, like albumen or cream. From island to island. Islands into islands. In search of an abandon. Fluttering, drifting, floating, sinking. Almost like dying, not to fall down. Uçup gitmiş olabilirlerdi. Uçağa binmeden bile önce. Rüzgar akıntıtıssın içindeki herkes kacaman bir saç kurutma makinası tarafından dalgalandı. Eğer sadece hava ile dolu olsalardı. Yumurta akı ya da krema gibi içinde çırpılırlardı. Adadan adaya. Adalardan adalara. Terketmenin arayışında. Çırpınmak, sapmak, süzülmek, batmak. Ölmek gibi, düşmemek için. Francesco Urbano Ragazzi

At first the encounters were kept private as part of A Special Day: an artistic workshop about queer memories and cultures, that from May 2011 is active in the city of Venice thanks to the Osservatorio LGBT (Venice City Hall Young Politics department) and to the UNAR (National anti racism discrimination office, part of the Equal Opportunities department). In the 2012, from the 6th of March until the 15th of April, in Palazzetto Tito, home of the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation, the initiated process has been morphed into an exhibition aimed at challenging the way the queer cultures are conveyed outside of identity borders: Io, tu, lui, lei is a heterosexual exhibition curated by Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano. Antonio Bigini and Rachele Maistrello, Tomaso De Luca, Sabina Grasso, Andrea Romano and Annatina Caprez created their own projects inspired by reflections during the residency program in Venice and during the meetings with the LGBT group. The six artists haven t been selected due to any strong adherence to homosexual and queer themes, so much as their varying degrees of recognition of such sensitivities: from love for fragments to the monumentality of the ephemeral, from illusionism to delegation of the authority of the artist. To these interventions were then added the contributions of Antonio Barletta, Dafne Boggeri, Chiara Fumai, Margherita Morgantin, Daniele Pezzi, Claudia Rossini, Arin Rungjang: artists whose research fits in an innovative way into the thinking about gender and identity. Thanks to the adopted selection criteria, the exhibition isn t a refresher course for experts in the sphere, but a happily experimental immersion into a still undiscovered, never ending universe.
14 Mirroring Residency program for UAE artists, Venice, 2011 Mirroring is the first residency program for UAE artists in Italy, promoted by the Emirates Foundation, curated by the Associazione E in collaboration with Nuova Icona, the Foundation Giorgio Cini Onlus and Ca Foscari University. For a period of 6 weeks Alaa Edris, a young artist from Sharjah who was selected by the art critic Salwa Mikdadi, had the opportunity to work in the Manica Luga, the brand new library of the Cini Foundation on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore; here she could access the enormous collection of books and photos owned by the Foundation Giorgio Cini Onlus and establish links with researchers and experts of other disciplines. A program of activities tailored to the resident artist was planned to introduce her to the Italian and European art context. Studio visits with the artists Haroon Mirza and Gaia Fugazza, lectures in collaboration with the Department of Asian and North African Studies (Ca Foscari University) were scheduled amongst meetings with curators and directors of institutions such as Via Farini and DOCVA, Hangar Bicocca, Prada Foundation, Marconi Foundation and Giò Marconi Gallery, Villa Medici - Académie de France, The Swiss Institute in Rome, Pastificio Cerere Foundation, Nomas Foundation, Giuliani Foundation and many others. Furthermore, Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano offered Alaa Edris the opportunity to work with a Venice-based artist - Valentina Roselli - with whom she had an intense intellectual exchange fostered by the curators weekly critiques. Alaa and Valentina tried to trace a female genealogy between their cultures: the attempt culminated in the final exhibition Sameage, a double solo show.
17 Art Enclosures IV Residency program, Fondazione di Venezia, 2011 The Art Enclosures project is a residency program for artists, created, produced and organised by La Fondazione di Venezia. The project aims to promote the work and career of young African artists. For the fourth edition, the scientific committee was headed by Simon Njami and Mara Ambrozic. After the committee received and scrutinised about 150 candidates, Victoria Samuel Udondian and Tamlyn Young were selected. Art Enclosures specifically asked for Associazione E to develop one program of the residency. The curators Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano have guided and advised the two artists in the discovery of the lagoon territory and of the wider Italian and European art context. Through studio visits, various meetings, museum tours and constant critical confrontations, the residential project allowed a deeper understanding of the research developed by the two artists. The results of this intense work have been displayed in an exhibition hosted by la Casa dei Tre Oci which was open from October the 25th until November the 6th 2011.
19 The Channelers Verona Art Fair, Independents section, 2011 Selected from amongst more than 150 non-profit organisations, Associazione E opted to reveal itself, for the second editions of Indipendents at ArtVerona. The stand at its disposal is designed to be a meeting point where people can freely stay and drink some Turkish chai. Interacting with the space, people then have the possibility to enter into the heart of The Channelers: a curatorial performance conceived by Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano. A series of clipped picture frames forms a sort of mirror board containing images related to the activity of the Associazione E. Choosing from amongst these images and through direct contact with the curators, the visitor can have access to a narration and to a viewing of some artistic content. The Association s history and the vision of multimedia files shared by artists Rachele Maistrello, Eugenia Vanni, Francesco Bertelé, Valentina Roselli and Alaa Edris, transform into real readings of the future. For four consecutive days the curators use their own professional past to suggest to strangers what their future will hold for them. Associazione E s old projects become archetypal images which are made personal.
21 Dolomitenhof Resort Group show at Dolomiti Contemporanee, Sass Muss, Dolomitenhof Resort is a collective, site-generic exhibition, made up of artworks that sensationally lack any pertinence to the context they are in. Impertinently, they induce people to ask themselves what am I doing here? in the middle of an industrial area like any other, overlooked by mountains, sometimes dark. It is an ideal place to open a resort: one of those contemporary spas that takes unfettered liberties in redesigning the landscape for the sole purpose of selfcare. A marketing strategy for the snippets of selected provinces is the promise of enduring paradise for an entire weekend. And it is not a small affair. From Friday till Sunday: three days is the time of a resurrection. Miraculous rejuvenation of one s vital functions, new life blood flowing through still human veins: the man, beyond divine, becomes Eden. He plants himself in a deserted unattractive environment, in order to cultivate his own oasis around him.but if the resorts, the five stars resorts, are vulgar and untrue to the earth, this one is on a different level. In Sass Muss, between the guesthouse, the bunker and the path along the river, a route emerges, proceeding in steps, delaying realisation of the goal. A certain distance builds up between the art work and audience, between the project and the result, contrasting the layers of study. Priscilla Tea, Eugenia Vanni, Antonio Guiotto, Nicola Genovese, Rachele Maistrello, Daniele Pezzi e Francesco Bertelè. The invited artists show an equal trust in reality. It is always reality from which they lever up the existing actuality. The fulcra, on the other hand, are different, but operated in the same way: the accuracy of a quiet job sooner or later will break in a jolt, a change of status and substance. The effect of these movements; that in crossing a region they make it longer and deeper, could be called surprise. Or also evolution; an act of adaptation of reality, that in differentiating from itself, doesn t alienate itself from its own nature. The oasis in the desert, even if it is a mirage, exists somewhere else, somewhere not too far and our eyes project its image here. It tricks us, but it also gives us the measure of a desire that has already become concrete.
23 To the green video, 3:32 min, 2010 To the green is part of the critical text written for Dolomitenhof Resort. An anonymous countryside is subtly changing around a solid iron gate. A slow dissolve deceives the viewer into seeing only one landscape where there is a passage between two different framings instead. The artificial expedient takes the rhythm of a natural growing plant. Video:
24 A little out of my sunshine Collecting The Future, Sinop, Tk, 2011 Collecting the Future is a public academy in Sinop (TK): two weeks debates and planning laboratories aiming to outline the future of the city and the natural park which surrounds it. Among the participants of Collecting the Future, are Michiel van Iersel (curator and cultural manager, Non-Fiction.nl), Eugen Pănescu (architect and urbanist), Ruggero Lala (Felix Meritis Foundation), Rarita Zbranka (AltArt Foundation), Işın Önol (independent curator), Johanna Reiner and Johannes Hoffman (Collabor.at) Amie Dicke, Mircea Nicolae, Johan Mürteza Fidan, Istvan Szakats (artists), Francesco Ragazzi & Francesco Urbano (Associazione E). The results of the works have been displayed in a collective exhibition open from the 17th of September until the 17th of November, in the converted wings of the ex-prison in Sinop. In the occasion of Collecting the Future, Associazione E presented, as a gift to the city, A little out of my sunshine, a project that blends artistic and curatorial practice. Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano presented to Sinop a large print from artist Sabina Grasso s series Midnight Candy. Before being placed in its final position, the picture was taken in a procession through some symbolic parts of the city. The landscapes reached during the walk have been temporally occupied by a big and shiny wrapped gift carried on the shoulders of a group of teenagers. Everything took place in a day with the aim of investigating the ambiguous political metaphor of carrying new light : this is related to the lantern of Diogene, which originated in Sinop, and also to the Turkish Government which will build a nuclear power station near the city. An oscillation between utopia and protest characterised the procession. A video and 16 aluminium clichés were disseminated throughout the ex-prison of Sinop as a document of the action and as a further stage of the project.
26 Tutulma solo show by Daniele Pezzi, Venice, 2011 Tutulma Eclipse in Turkish - is the title of Daniele Pezzi s personal exhibition. A field tent occupies the centre of the room and it forces the audience to go round it in order to find the entrance. Inside, the artist shows the movie that has been set in Turkey and Italy on the occasion of his attendance to the Biennale in Sinop. The exhibition itself is named after this movie. One of the side rooms exposes an installation made with a series of objects that are present in the video (modified geographic maps, bark masks, geometrical solids, books, drowning). These elements acquire the value of sculptures and they are arranged in the space like archaeological finds that have been abandoned by an oceanographic expedition.
28 Padiglione Internet On the occasion of the 54. Venice Biennale, Thanks to the collaboration between Gloria Maria Gallery and Associazione E, San Servolo island hosted the 2nd Internet Pavilion for the Venice Biennale, a project initiated by Miltos Manetas.

30 Gli amatori a film in progress produced by Fondazione March, Gli Amatori is a movie set at home two rooms and a kitchen. Everything takes place within a flat/showroom, property of LAGO S.p.A. furniture business. The main characters are a group of temporary inhabitants who decide to organize a party and document it on video. The authors give only a few script and direction rules; they then collect the video and take care of the post-production. The editing brings together acting gestures, images of documentation and moments of clear fiction in a reversible film speech, constantly swinging between emptying and filling, welcoming and leaving, single and unanimous, improvisation and recitation. The first of a potential infinite series of versions of Gli Amatori has been set in Appartamento LAGO in Venice, in March 2011; it looked like a business team building exercise and it had as the main characters members of the contemporary art foundation March. The project was made possible by the business and the foundation following on from the residency program LagoStudio 2010.
32 Spot - studio dal vivo Residency program, 4 cycles, Sala del Camino, Venice, o10. Spot - studio dal vivo is a residency program for artists which started in 2009; an initiative of the Associazione E. Curated by Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano, the project takes place by the Chimney Room in SS. Cosma and Damiano estate on the Giudecca Island: the building was a weapons warehouse in Napoleon times and was given back to the community as a public Art Centre at the end of Spot creates new webs of relations which expand from being local to becoming international, through the involvement of operators, institutions and people who can benefit from contemporary art. For this reason the artists, during the residency program, are not called to show their work in their own personal exhibitions, but rather they are asked to cover the role of directors of a collective and multidisciplinary process. During 2009/2010, 4 residency cycles were realized.
33 Spot n. 0 - The Fall Giulia Nomis a photographer from Turin was hosted from December 2009 until February 2010 in a studio by the Sala del Camino (chimney room) on the venetian Giudecca island. According to Spot s rules, during the residency program the artist has had to relinquish any idea of installing a personal exhibition in the working area as should be the case in order to concentrate on her job as part of a cooperative process. The experiment itself is the base of Giulia Nomis s intervention. She chooses to go deeper, away from photography and to study a theme that often recurs in a series of pictures about the figure of the nymph. The identified subject is the one of the fall, considered a paradigm of the modern age. The fall is in fact the movement of the apple which fell on Newton s head and which allows the scientist to theorize about the force of gravity, but it is also the tragic destiny of Icarus, a symbol of human beings placing too much trust in their technical means instead of nature. With the cooperation of the curators Francesco Ragazzi and Francesco Urbano, the artist collects all the literary inspiration that guided her in the realisation of the photographic series, and creates a sort of wider bibliography. More than 100 books are suspended in the air thanks to a system of ropes that sustains in this way a small library that can be consulted by the public. The structure of the whole installation is determined by the specific weight of the paper and by the readers interaction. A filmography which follows the same logic of the fall patrol, can be consulted instead through a mash up of scenes and sound tracks taken from Hitchcock, Roni Horn, Yoko Ono and Wenders amongst the others. The environment set up in the Sala del Camino works as a hyperlink to the solo show set during the same period by the Upp Gallery and curated by the Associazione E: Il trentesimo anno (the 30th year). The exhibition, like the intervention created for the Sala del Camino, has been strongly influenced by two special studio visits which gave the artist fundamental critical lines. Giulia Nomis had the chance to evaluate herself, particularly with the actress Patricia Zanco and the philosopher Diana Sartori, founder of the Circolo di Diotima.
