Art has always lived, marked and gone along with mankind. Each time art requires a different kind of language and telling – more and more intense, deep and impactful – to try to bring order to a variety of criticised, eclectic, poetic and exacerbated visions, with decreasingly clear boundaries.
Recontemporary is a blog, on-line magazine, video interview archive, with the aim of telling from the inside about a present but often still inaccessible world, through the voice of some of its more influent key figures.
Artists, art critics, curators, gallerists and collectors. The blog gathers more than simple interviews or discussions: these are questions, notes, conversations and confidences picked up in ateliers or at art fairs across Europe.
Recontemporary is an idea by Iole Pellion di Persano. Daughter of gallerists – since she was a child, she has got in touch with artists, considering them as uncles in competitions about who was better at drawing and playing with installations in their ateliers. Now she has decided to let the spectator enter her world by trying to focus on its complexities.
