A Story is a format of AGORA that invites artists to present their own personal “art history’’ accompanied by a slide show of images, sounds and videos.
This session with Anna Franceschini is part of a series of appointments made in collaboration with the Art Quadriennale, featuring the artists of the 2020 edition.
Anna Franceschini is also among the artists of Io poeto tu, the exhibition currently on view in the POLYPHONY section of Museum for Preventive Imagination.
