Project Description

The Media Exhibition Platform (MEP), founded and directed by Lanfranco Aceti, is an internationally curated and refereed exhibition space. MEP is a curatorial platform for research and analyses in contemporary art and culture that focus on the experimental and the researched. What does it mean to curate and create artworks in a social media context of dispersed imageries and discursive feedback? What is the limit of interaction and engagement between author and audience? Is the curator’s filter still necessary or superseded by a ‘collective curatorial’ and archival existence?

MEP operational approach is embedded into international curatorial and artistic cultural practices with a range of exhibitions that happen through both online and physical spaces. The approach developed is that of constant engagement with biennials, galleries, festival and art fairs, creating a feedback loop between online curatorial experiences and physical events, overcoming the division of the exhibitions’ spaces as an either / or approach that is based on the stance of physical versus virtual.

The exhibition realized through the Media Exhibition Platform provide a moment of reflection on the aesthetic and cultural developments as well as on the curatorial processes and the distributed presence of imageries in the contemporary globalized art world.
