Visual Residency Night, 17 September, 6:30pm

Come and meet Damiano Bertoli, our Visual Resident Artist for 2018.


On Monday 17 September, the Monash Prato Centre will have the pleasure of introducing to its students and the local community Damiano Bertoli, the selected Visual Resident Artist for 2018.

For his 3-month residency at the Monash Prato Centre, Damiano proposes to undertake two projects, each one relating to cultural movements in Northern Italy. The first continues a series of works exploring the relationships between design and radical politics in Italy, with specific reference to influential ‘80s Milan design group “Memphis” and material on student and worker movements curated at the Centro Documentazione Pistoia. Bertoli’s second project is being conducted in collaboration with the Monash Faculty of Art Design and Architecture (MADA) lecturer Warren Taylor, and aims to curate an exhibition and catalogue of the work of Fluxus designer Gianni Sassi.        

Bertoli has exhibited at several major institutions, including: Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne; National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Heide Museum of Modern Art, Melbourne; Artspace, Sydney; Perth Institute of Contemporary Art, Perth; National Gallery of Australia, Canberra; and Tokyo Centre for Contemporary Photography, Tokyo.

Bertoli received a PhD in Fine Art from Monash University in 2014, and lectures at Monash University and the Victorian College of the Arts, Melbourne. His work is the subject of a new monograph, ‘Damiano Bertoli – Continuous Moment’, published by Surpllus.  

The Visual Residency Program, a collaborative initiative between the Monash Prato Centre and MADA, offers established and emerging creative practitioners the opportunity to incubate new ideas, undertake research, and engage with local institutions and industry in Prato.

The event will be held in English on the ground floor of the Centre and will be followed by drinks in the Palazzo Vaj Garden.
