Nomas Foundation’s Reading Room this year focuses its attention on initiatives established by artists for artists. The entire month of April is dedicated to projects initiated in Italy, that represent a practical answer to the working necessity of every artist: dialogue, research, documentation, distribution, residency projects, legal advice.
Reading Room voll.7-10 is a programme declined in four appointments, that each time take a different shape, depending on the diverse ways the single projects intend presenting themselves.

Sottobosco is a collective of artists and curators, born in 2009 that aims at the creation of an independent platform for cultural planning. A network for connecting, sharing and archiving that develops specific tools of formation, information and visibility for young artists, based on the open content criteria.
Sottobosco is an idea that asks and offers hospitality; an experimental project, open to collaborations and focused on a collective and co-authorial practice. Starting from a reflection on the opportunity to extend the idea of art as field, to anyone who is interested in sharing knowledge, projects and skills in order to develop a creative and interdisciplinary approach to cultural planning.
ShowDesk is a project that aims at offering young artists the opportunity of showing their work. The meetings take place each time in a different Italian city (until today in Genoa, Milan and Venice). The ShowDesk format fosters exchange and dialogue between artists in a relational way, around issues connected to their own artistic practice and poetic.
Sottobosco will invite selected artists of the contemporary scene of Rome to give a public presentation of their work. They are also invited to leave their material on view and to become part of Sottobosco artists’s archive.
