Frascati kicks off the third edition of the Biennale of Contemporary Ceramic Art

In Frascati kicks off the 2018 edition, the third, of the Biennale of Contemporary Ceramic Art, at various venues from Jan. 27 to Feb. 28, 2018.

It opens Saturday, January 27, and runs through February 28, 2018, the third edition of the Frascati Biennial of Contemporary Ceramic Art, which for this year will take place at the Scuderie Aldobrandini, the Museo Civico Tuscolano and the Valadier Walls. The event, despite its young age, is an important observatory on the contemporary languages of an ancient art, that of ceramics, in all its various forms.

The exhibition project for 2018 has been entrusted to Sandro Conte and Francesco Paolo Posa, while the curatorship is by Jasmine Pignatelli. The public at the exhibition will be able to see works by Italian (Francesco Ardini, Luigi Belli/Guido Scarabottolo, Raffaele Fiorella, Giovanni Gaggia, Eva Hide, Vincenzo Marsiglia, Dunia Mauro, Angela Palmarelli, Cristiana Vignatelli Bruni, Serena Zanardi) and international artists: this year, in particular, the host nation is Spain, and works by ten of the most important contemporary Spanish ceramists, namely Sophie Aguilera, Alberto Bustos, Xavier Monsalvatje, María Oriza Pérez, Juan Ortí, Gregorio Peño, Juan Pérez, Cristina Salvans, Manuel Sánchez-Algora, and Nuria Torres, will be featured in Frascati.

The event will also host collateral events: exhibitions on traditional ceramics, the presentation of a work by Luigi Ontani celebrating the archaeological discovery of an elephant protome from excavations at Tusculum, two tribute exhibitions (one to ceramist Nino Caruso and the other to the Etrusco Ludens experience, a creative workshop established in Tarquinia in the late 1960s by one of the world’s greatest artists of the time, Sebastian Matta).

At all venues of the Biennial of Contemporary Ceramic Art, hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission: full 5.5 euros, reduced 3 euros. More info at
