DADA TODAY MAY 15, 2018

We all know what Dada is and how it affected the art of the 20th century. But why, of all the Avant-garde "isms", Dada is one of the few that have survived? Why the Cabaret Voltaire is still open? Are there any Dadaist artists today? And what it means to be Dada in the 21st century? To help us answer all these burning questions, we invited Adrian Notz, director of the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich, a, artist and Dada expert, and Bruno Bandini, professor of Aesthetics and Contemporary Art History at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna.

 

Followed by: live set by So Beast

KRISHNAMURTI + SIMON WHETHAM APRIL 4, 2018

The Narkissos Contemporary Art Gallery continues its exploration of the world of sound. This time our eardrums will be surprised by the Italian duet Krishnamurti (Giovanni Lami - Lorenzo Abattoir) and Simon Whetham from England, who are ready to make vibrate whatever vibrates, leaving us feeling pleasantly dizzy.

NARKISSOS part 2 MARCH 18, 2018

The Narkissos Contemporary Art Gallery, a creation by the young curator Yelena Mitrjushkina, started its activity in November 2016 under the "two towers" of Bologna, in a very orange apartment on via San Vitale.

 

Two exhibitions, three events and one concert later, it leaved the first location to move to another one. Under the "two towers" again - but not the same as before.

 

In the shadow of the skyscrapers of via Zago we feel comfortable and we're ready to start over. Handsome, fresh, energised. And what a beginning would it be without a party?

 

18:00 - Inauguration with welcoming cocktail

19:00 - Art performance by Vikenti Komitski

21:00 - Concert by DaDi etro

Bar and refreshments by Vineria alle erbe

LEAVING PARTY JOHN DUNCAN ft. SO BEAST SEPTEMBER 30, 2017

The Narkissos Contemporary Art Gallery is on the edge of big changes: one chapter of its history is coming to an end and another one is ready to start. Very soon we'll leave these suggestive apartment with its orange walls to move to another location - but first, we want to properly say goodbye to it. That's why we've invited John Duncan, who will kindly perform an exclusive preview of his RED SKY ~John Duncan Japan Tour 2017~ (due to start in October), accompanied by the post-punk duo So Beast. Don't miss the last chance to see the first headquarters of the Narkissos Gallery!
