In order to present the sixth edition of the International residency program RESÒ, sponsored by the Foundation for Modern and Contemporary Art CRT, and the Working Geographies volume (which documents all editions since 2010) it has been started a journey through culture’s places, residencies, academies and museums. RESÒ is in fact an experience of residence that offers a set of reflections around boundary concepts, identity and culture in a global fluid scene which is subject to constant interrelations and fractures.

The book which documents the first five editions has already been presented to Circolo dei Lettori in Turin and to the NABA in Milan. On the 6th October it will be presented in Bologna in order to compare it with the long activity of Nosadella.due (Independent Residency for Public Art). Then the tour will continue with the artist Paola Anzichè and the 20th October it will reach Matera, the Capital of Culture 2019, with the SoutHeritage Foundation for Contemporary Art and finally it will get to Bergamo the 9th November, where the program and the volume will be presented as part of the Accademia delle Belle Arti G. Carrara activities with Alessandra Pioselli and Giorgio Cugno.
Some questions and topical issues such as economy, environment, politics, history, communication, social sciences, will be explored through texts of authors and projects of the twenty artists involved in the six editions of RESO’, exploring not usual artistic routes that in times of radical transformation, bring into dialogue the Northern Italian region of Piedmont, with Egypt, Brazil, India and Colombia.

Times and places of each presentation will be announced on the website in the day before each meeting.

Resò at Naba
Working Geographies and
Caucacola project by
Giorgio Cugno

NABA
Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti
Via Darwin, 20
Milano

wgnaba-5

Which can be the art’s and artists’ role in a changing
geography like the one we have seen during last years? How much does the residence affect on the artistic reasearch in this prospective?

Starting from the volume Working Geographies (Mousse Publishing) about the first four editions of the international programme RESÒ, presented by the curator Lisa Parola of the collective a.titolo, the discussion will be held on declinations and incidences of the artistic practice of residence comparing different projects.
Giving shape to a strange geography that connects the northern Italian region of Piedmont, with Egypt, Brazil, India and Colombia, Working Geographies offers a set of reflections around the boundary concepts, identity and culture, in a global scenario, liquid and subject to constant interrelations and fractures.
As part of the meeting, Giorgio Cugno, artist involved in the fourth edition of RESÒ, will present Caucacola, an artwork made up of a cinematic installation and a sculpture created by the artist in 2014 during the residency at Lugar a Dudas, Cali, in Colombia. Recurring theme in the current research of the artist is the exploitation of raw materials such as gold or water, which become the plotline for questioning on issues such as geographical boundaries, the global economic flows, the relationship between the changes of environment and human action, the balance between work and market.
RESÒ is an international residence program for Piedmont artists, it was born in 2010 from the collaboration of major Piedmont artistic institutions and thanks to the support of the Fondazione per l’Arte Modena e Contemporanea.
The project is curated by: Accademia Albertina delle Belle Arti, a.titolo,  Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, Città di Torino GAI, Cittadellarte Fondazione Pistoletto, Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, PAV – Parco Arte Vivente.
