Vito Acconci

(New York 1940 - New York 2017)

 

Dopo gli studi in letteratura alla University of Iowa (1962-64) e l’esperienza con la rivista indipendente “0 to 9” da lui co-fondata nel 1967, inizia una ricerca di espansione della scrittura concentrandosi sul proprio corpo come mezzo espressivo, sul rapporto tra sé e gli altri e sulla relazione con lo spazio architettonico. Opere di questo periodo sono interventi su strada che l’artista documenta con testi scritti a mano, fotografie, registrazioni sonore e video. Alcune delle sue opere più famose di questo periodo come Following Piece (1969), Tradesmark (1970), e Seedbed (1972), hanno influenzato sia artisti contemporanei che le future generazioni. Il lavoro di Vito Acconci continua a evolvere nel corso degli anni Settanta, definendosi come quello di un architetto non convenzionale coinvolto nella progettazione di strutture con un’ampia diversità di materiali. Nel 1988 fonda Acconci Studio, studio d’architettura coinvolto nella progettazione e realizzazione di opere pubbliche, edifici, giardini – alcuni mai compiuti – come la galleria e il centro culturale Storefront a Manhattan (1993) e la Muri Island a Graz (2003).

Vito Acconci insegna in numerose istituzioni tra le quali Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, Halifax in Canada; California Institute of the Arts, Valencia US; Cooper Union, New York; School of Art Institute, Chicago; Yale University, New Haven; Parsons School of Design, New York. Nel 2016, un anno prima della sua morte, Vito Acconci assieme alla moglie Maria concepisce per il MoMA PS1 la retrospettiva dedicata ai suoi primi lavori su video dal 1968 al 1976 Where We Are Now (Who Are We Anyway). Importanti mostre personali in istituzioni internazionali hanno preceduto quest’ultima: Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Castello di Rivoli, Torino (2010), Argos Center for Art & Media, Brussels (2009), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (2005), Musée des Beaux-Art, Nantes e MACBA, Barcelona (2004), Milwaukee Museum of Art (2002), Musée d’art moderne, Saint-Etienne (1994), Centro Pecci, Prato e Centre national d’art contemporain, Grenoble (1992), Museum of Modern Art, New York (1988), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1983), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (1980), Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam (1978).

Il lavoro di Vito Acconci è riconosciuto in tutto il mondo come dimostrano l’International Sculpture Center’s Lifetime Achievement Award (1997), due New York City Art Commission Awards for Excellence in Design (1999 e 2004), e le numerose partecipazioni in mostre collettive tra le quali più recenti: FRAC Bourgogne, Dijon, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago e Brooklyn Museum, New York (2018), Walker Art Center, Minneapolis (2017), Belvedere, Vienna (2015), Le Tripostal, Lille (2011), Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2010), National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo (2009), Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney (2006, 2002), Guggenheim Museum, New York (2004), Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2001). Tra le rassegne internazionali alle quali ha partecipato: Biennale di Lione (2003, 1995), Biennale di Sydney (2002), Documenta VII, VI, V (1982, 1977, 1972), Biennale di Venezia (1978, 1976), Biennale di San Paolo (1975).
