ERROR Proyecto, History of Exhibiting / History of Hiding

10.12.2022 – 15.01.2023

Nina Fiocco & Oscar Formacio
History of Exhibiting / History of hiding

The workshop and lecture program “History of exhibiting / history of hiding” proposes a three day collective reflection in the field of art, history and a few micro-histories, oscillating between the concept of discovering, organizing and showing, and the value and concept of hiding as a political possibility and as a resistance tool for post-colonial strategies.

The workshop will explore several examples from different contexts particularly from Mexico (Oscar’s country) and Italy (Nina’s country). The workshop will start from the collective review of materials proposed by Error and will continue with a series of activities of conversation, ar- tistic exercise, case of study connected to the participants’ backgrounds, and will conclude with a collective installation and performative lecture.

We are warmly inviting artists and art students from the area to take part in this workshop with Nina and Oscar, to share knowledge and learn and take part. Please write an email to
