As of today, Exposition of an exposition by Antonello Tolve, is available on line at Arshake. This is the first e-book of «Critical Grounds», the editorial project directed by the author himself and by art critic Christian Caliandro.
How and when did exhibitions win a primary role in the attention of critics and of the media? When did they find their way in and around the expositional framework? «Revival, restyling, remake or remapping, the show returns to talk about itself in order to emphasize the importance (creative, critical or curatorial) of making room and placing a work within an environment (Tolve).» This book orchestrates the critic’s tale with its illustration through an archive of unparalleled images.
«Critical Grounds» is born from the desire to network precious and of great cultural interest books in open source electronic format. It is, in fact, a shelf which, together with the re-release of untraceable or forgotten essays, spreads rumors of the international critical scene to offer a wide-ranging look at the culturological contemporary landscape. Alongside this program «Critical Grounds» also proposes artist books, new authors and new voices of fiction to share with its authors and its readers a wide choice of assumptions, guidelines, designs on the creative area of the near future. Allow us to introduce this project’s first work, which you can download right here or from the site banners. Enjoy your read and …. enjoy what you see!
