The role of contemporary graphic archives for an appreciation of the history of graphic and communication

Istituto Svizzero hosts a conference curated by the m.a.x. museum in Chiasso as part of the program of collateral events to the exhibition ARCHIVI GRAFICI/GRAPHIC ARCHIVES: Franco Grignani, Lora Lamm, Giovanna Graf, Simonetta Ferrante, Heinz Waibl, Bruno Monguzzi, Orio Galli, Vito Noto, curata da Mario Piazza e Nicoletta Ossanna Cavadini (Chiasso, 18.05.2024—22.09.2024).

The exhibition ARCHIVI GRAFICI is part of the contemporary graphics trend. Curated by Mario Piazza and Nicoletta Ossanna Cavadini, the show features a selection of about 300 works stored in the graphic archives of Centro Culturale Chiasso. These pieces have come together over the years through donations from artists and internationally renowned graphic designers, as well as through art acquisitions by art lovers and philanthropists, and by the association amici del m.a.x. museum.

The occasion of the conference is an important signal of the willingness to witness the Canton of Ticino’s ability to ‘make culture’ abroad as well, and to promote cultural projects in synergy with important public institutions and international loans. The different voices of the speakers will explore, also through the projection of images, the theme of the role of the art and graphic archives and the importance of preserving, studying and making available to the public the graphic ‘knowledge’ that underlies the history of communication.
