From Thursday, 6th May until Thursday, 3rd June 2021


Fondazione ICA Milano presents Trovate Ortensia, a group show with the artists participating to the 2019-2020 edition of Roma Calling, the transdisciplinary residency program organized by Istituto Svizzero of Rome. The exhibition is conceived and curated by the curatorial collective Il Colorificio (Michele Bertolino, Bernardo Follini, Giulia Gregnanin, Sebastiano Pala) and it is realized in collaboration with Istituto Svizzero and Fondazione ICA Milano.

The project takes its origins from La Libellula (Panegirico della libertà, 1958), “political short poem, feminist as well as poetic” by Amelia Rosselli (1930-1996), poetess, organist and etno-musician. The text by Rosselli, the ghostly figure of Ortensia, inherited from the poem in prose by Rimbaud, oscillates between a tension toward the outside and an intimate and repaired withdrawing. The resonating between these dimensions, together with the claim of an expressive freedom able to overpower the linguistic conventions and with topics related to care, sexuality and death, which appear within the poem as ghostly traces, constitute the grammar of the show.


Free admission, booking is required by email: rsvp@icamilano.it
