Francesca Gallo has taught Contemporary Art History at Sapienza University of Rome since 2011, and between 2014 and 2020 she is board member of Consulta Universitaria per la Storia dell’Arte (CUNSTA). She studied the art and the critics of art as well as the techniques and the methods of art in the Twentieth century. Her interests on Italian Neo-avant-gardes – artists, critics, journals and exhibitions – have a specific focus on videoart and performance (Ricerche di Storia dell’Arte, respectively 2006 and 2014; L’Uomo nero 2018). She devoted her Ph.D. research to the exhibition Les Immatériaux (Centre Pompidou 1985), about which she published several essays and a book (Rome 2008). Francesca Gallo has just curated All’alba dell’arte digitale. Il Festival Arte Elettronica di Camerino (Mimesis 2018) and Gianni Melotti, La fotografia è facile. Giuseppe Chiari nelle immagini degli anni Settanta (Giunti 2019). Collaborations with artists prefer conceptual, performative and site-specific approaches, as in the exhibitions Sintattica (Rome 2015) and Confluenze (Rome 2016).
