Every year, the Quadriennale produces a volume whose aim is to represent the critical discussion on art produced in Italy during the last 12 months. Its main section consists of a collection of excerpts from the press review of the entire calendar year in which the activities of Italian artists and curators are involved. The volume is accompanied by six ‘navigational essays’ through which to navigate the mare magnum of the compilation section. The essays are compiled by the curators involved in the various projects of the programme.
The aim of this volume is to trace an identifiable panorama from year to year and to take a snapshot of what has characterised the Italian artistic production of a given season.
This project is coordinated by Raffaella Perna.
Italian artists can send an indication of their press review (critical only) to the project curators.
