ATPdiary invited some curators to point out three international artworks that summarize – or are meaningful of – three historical periods. 

One from the past, even very distant.

One from the present, focusing on the contemporary moment.

One from the future, with a strong perspective, in a nutshell, towards what’s next.

Past —

“In Search of the Miraculous”, Bas Jan Ader set sail from Cape Cod on the 9th of July 1975.

La performance. Unica, ineguagliabile.

Presente —

Felix Gonzalez-Torres  Untitled (perfect lovers) 1991

(Anche se del ’91. Senza tempo)

Future — 

Retro future. Il futuro del presente incarnato perfettamente da un’opera collettiva  nascosta sulle Cocos Island in Costa Rica e dalla “mostra” sui generis dal titolo “Treasure of Lima: A Buried Exhibition” organizzata dalla TB21 Academy di Vienna (a cura di Nadim Samman).
