k.i.n. is a network project involving different independent realities that deal with contemporary art and culture, an expanding multi-cellular organism generated by the synergy of ten associations active in Bologna which come together as a single force through open and constant collaboration and dialogue. The network of associations acts as a sounding board giving voice to common purposes and goals while maintaining the peculiar characteristics of each of the realities that are and will be part of it.
The project aims to bring together both the skills and material availability of each association, with the aim of making sustainable the projects and initiatives that are intended to be carried out both as a network and as individual realities.
Currently, the associations involved are: Adiacenze, Checkpoint Charly, EXIT - ASAP, Gelateria Sogni di Ghiaccio, Maison Ventidue, Nelumbo, Ottovolante, Parsec, Tank and TIST.
The intent of k.i.n. network is to involve an increasing number of entities in the area that deal mainly with contemporary art in its most diverse aspects.
On Saturday, October 8, k.i.n. will introduce itself to the city and tell how the project was born and how it intends to develop.
The event will be structured in two central moments: the first one presenting the project and a subsequent one in which a panel discussion will be held. In this roundtable, there will be a direct discussion with the audience and some guests who will bring their experience regarding issues specific to independent spaces and community making.
The contributors will be Davide Da Pieve (historian and art critic), Etta Polico (president of the Serendippo Association) and Untitled Association (an association committed to the creation of a solid network of contacts and relationships between galleries, foundations and institutions operating in the contemporary art scene)
The evening will continue with a musical selection by k.i.n.
Admission is free with ARCI membership card.
