CURA. is a curatorial/editorial platform, founded by Ilaria Marotta and Andrea Baccin in 2009, and consists of a magazine, a publishing house, and an exhibition program that works internationally in collaboration with museums, foundations, galleries, institutions and independents. Curatorial research and critical activity developed by CURA. is focused on both the investigation of new contemporary languages and on the development and implementation of new exhibition formats. BASEMENT ROMA, conceived and powered by CURA., is envisioned as a self-sustainable project space, devoted to experimentation, discussion and the promotion of artists’ practices.
