'a due'

The project "a due". Arte Contemporanea in Italia e Belgio ("in twos". Contemporary Art in Italy and Belgium), conceived and curated by Laura Viale, took place at the Italian Cultural Institute of Brussels from November 2015 to March 2018.

It originated from an invitation to Viale to exhibit her work in the Institute, which the artist extended to some of her Italian colleagues with Belgian connections, asking each one to invite a Belgian to create a relationship of affinity or contrast. The project was developed with the critic contribution of the art historian Maria Elena Minuto.

"a due" involved artists coming from different experiences and generations in a series of "dialogical exhibitions": Davide Bertocchi and Joris Van de Moortel, Enrico Gaido and Freek Wambacq, Margherita Moscardini and Futurefarmers, Laura Viale and Stijn Cole, Raffaella Crispino and Hans Demeulenaere, Alberto Scodro and Paul De Vree, Serena Fineschi with Alessandro Scarabello and Hans Op de Beeck.

A book on the project was published in 2018 by Prinp Editore, Turin.
