Special openings for Milano Art Week 2023

Reek of past pitfalls is the first solo exhibition in Milan by Caterina De Nicola, who presents a large site-specific installation within the space of Istituto Svizzero. In her artistic practice, Caterina De Nicola works through writing, painting, sculpture, music, and performance. She is interested in the idea of glitch and often uses found objects as well as symbols to question the very essence of form, meaning and aesthetic taste. As a music producer, Caterina De Nicola is influenced by the sub-genres of Noise music.

Curated by Gioia Dal Molin.
