Look Who’s Talking: Francesco Stocchi (EN)
Guided tour of the exhibition The Show Must Ego On by Francesco Stocchi, Curator, Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, Rotterdam.
Francesco Stocchi (b.1975, Rome) was based for several years in Vienna before being appointed in 2011 Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam). In addition to organising exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States, Stocchi writes for several periodicals and is a regular contributor for Artforum. He has contributed essays to museum catalogues and monographic publications on various artists, among others Gelatin, Cindy Sherman, Arcangelo Sassolino and Dan Colen. In 2010 he established the magazine AGMA, which presents visual reviews of current and historical exhibitions. Stocchi and Erik van Lieshout created a proposal for the Dutch pavilion at the 2017 Venice biennale that was shortlisted but ultimately not selected. He draws upon this experience of working with the artist to talk about the exhibition.
