“SPIRITO SCALA!”

30 Mar > 25 Apr 2014

at 63rd-77th STEPS – Art Project Staircase – Bari (Italy)

 

Daniel Keller‘s wide-ranging output engages with issues at the intersection of economics, technology, culture and collaboration. His current focus of research is on notions of progress, technological disruption and the role of the post-studio ‘prosumer imagineer’ artist in the global networked economy. As Aids-3D, he has exhibited throughout Europe and the United States since 2006. In 2012 he became Director of Absolute Vitality Inc, a Wyoming based corporation/sculpture which is co-owned by the artist, gallery and a group of collectors. Along with Simon Denny, he was co-organizer of TEDxVaduz which was held at the Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein in December, 2013. He recently completed residencies at Casa Maauad in Mexico City, Mexico and at Siliqoon/MAMbo, Bologna Italy.

63rd-77th STEPS is a project space for contemporary art founded and run by the artist Fabio Santacroce. The name refers to the final part of a multi-floor staircase (the area between the 63rd and the 77th step) inside a residential building from the beginning of the XX century in “Quartiere Libertà ”, a popular and multicultural district in Bari (Italy).
Due to space limitations and the domestic nature of the location, the exhibition will mainly be online or open by appointment only.
