Una Storia was a cycle of five talks that rethink the classical artist talk format by internationally renowned artists from different generations. Una Storia is a project curated by Luca Lo Pinto.
Una Storia seeked to identify unusual interpretations and alternative routes to discussing widely recognized and established "classics" of the history of Italian and international art. To this effect five protagonists of the contemporary art scene have been invited and their narratives offered not only contemplations on the history of art, but more importantly interests and points of reference for the protagonists of art today.
Using words, images, sound and video these fascinating and surprising narrations were conveyed by each artist as five quick trips through history and time; five "histories of art", balancing between an intimate and personal dimension and a more collective and familiar one.
