Elisabetta Trincherini was in residence at CCA in January 2023 as part of the Find and Tell program to select and interpret material from the Gianni Pettena fonds, donated to the CCA in 2018 and documenting Pettena’s activity as an artist, theorist, critic, and curator. Trincherini traces Pettena’s ongoing dialogue with North America through observations of his travels, the examination of select projects, and an exploration of his teaching syllabi.
The Find and Tell program is conceived as a series of residencies in which invited experts are asked to put forward arguments about our holdings by making a significant selection and interpretation of material within an archive or the photography collection. The curated selection can be based on key areas or periods, key projects, or a topical interest the expert thinks should be revealed.
