BIOGRAPHY

Since 2013, Théo-Mario Coppola has been working as an independent curator and writer in Paris, France, and abroad at international level.

With HOTEL EUROPA, an exhibition series set in different cities (May 2017 in Vilnius, Lithuania, January 2018 in Brussels, Belgium, and third chapter in May 2019 in Tbilisi, Georgia), he has been exploring new aspects of the Mitteleuropa concept, beyond the traditional notion of territoriality, through contemporary concerns, whether economic, social or pertaining to migration.

Through his curatorial research, he has developed the concept of “affective communities”. This curatorial methodology, explored within several exhibition projects, refers to pragmatic utopia experiences and leads to new forms of collaboration and group initiatives. Taken both as collectives and situations, “affective communities” are crossed by social and aesthetic issues: resistance, identities at the margin of society, and the transformation of art values.

From September 2017 to November 2018, he was the director of CollezioneTaurisano, an international private contemporary art collection in Naples, Italy, which is focused on political art. As director of the collection, he was in charge of the acquisition programme, the artistic programme, budget and the general management of the collection and for continuing the development of the collection’s archive.

From September 2017 to December 2018, he was artistic director at Primo Piano & Intermezzo, in Paris, an independent residency and exhibition program supporting young international emerging talents. Besides the artistic programme, he was also in charge of the exhibitions production and events, working closely with the artists.

In October 2018, he was appointed curator of the third edition of the “white night” at Villa Medici in Rome, Italy.
