On May 12, 2020, Pietro Pantalani, coordinator of the exhibition "Carla Accardi: Sicofoil," was joined by Hans Ulrich Obrist on Instagram Live for a conversation on the artist and her context. This is the second episode of our online programme "Conversations on Accardi," also featuring guest speakers Flavia Frigeri and Laura Cherubini.
Hans Ulrich Obrist is Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries, London and curator of Carla Accardi's 2002 retrospective at Musée d'Art Moderne de Paris. Obrist's deep knowledge and respect for Carla's practice is at the foundation of his 2001 interview with the artist that M&L has republished in the exhibition catalogue "Carla Accardi: Sicofoil."
In conversation with Pietro Pantalani, Hans Ulrich shared his memories of meeting and working with Carla, as well as her unique position within the context of postwar Italian art.
The catalogue of the exhibition "Carla Accardi: Sicofoil" is available on our website and on ISSUU.
