Approaching The End - Rebecca Rose Cuomo and Andrea Galvani 

Following her article in Frieze Week magazine, Rebecca Rose Cuomo talks with international artist Andrea Galvani about complex projects such as The End and other works presented in the Deutsche Bank Wealth Management Lounge at the fair. Adopting a cross-disciplinary approach that often draws upon scientific methodology, Galvani’s conceptual research informs his use of photography, video, drawing, and installation. Incorporating cutting-edge technology, he pioneers a new conceptual language in the fusion of art and science. Rebecca Rose Cuomo is an independent curator, writer, and activist. Her research interests include intersectionality in art and social thought, performance theory, and elemental philosophy.
