Nico Vascellari

Artist, Guest

Nico Vascellari (1976, Vittorio Veneto, Italy) is a visual artist based in Rome, while keeping alive and curating the programming of his space Codalunga in Vittorio Veneto. He left the university to focus on his singing for With Love, a punk/noise band with which he has produced several albums and toured throughout Europe, USA and Japan. The intensity of performance is one of the starting points of Vascellari’s artistic research. His work includes the use of media such as sculpture, photography, video and installation. His performances were recently defined as “storms of feedback between the performer, the audience and the space”. Among his most significant solo exhibitions: MAXXI | Museo nazionale delle arti del XXI secolo, Rome (2018); Palais De Tokyo, Paris (2017); Accademia di Francia – Villa Medici, Rome (2016); Museion, Bolzano (2010); Museo MAN, Nuoro (2007); Viafarini, Milan (2006). He has also participated in the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007); Manifesta 7 (2008); 15th Quadriennale in Rome (2008); 12th Architecture Biennale in Venice (2010); 15th Lyon Biennale (2019).
