biographie


Vit à : Paris , France

Théo-Mario Coppola

Théo-Mario Coppola est un curateur, critique et écrivain d’arts franco-italien. Il mène des projets d’exposition à Paris où il réside, et à l’international. Il entretient des liens actifs avec plusieurs scènes artistiques en Europe et en Amérique Latine.

Spécialiste des cultural studies et des questions internationales, Théo-Mario Coppola est diplômé de Sciences Po Toulouse et d’un Master II en sociologie politique des représentations et expertise culturelle.

Il est à l’initiative d’une série d’expositions sous le titre HOTEL EUROPA, avec un premier chapitre à Vilnius en juin 2017, un second en janvier-avril 2018 à Bruxelles et un troisième en mai-juin 2019 à Tbilissi. Il y défend une approche inclusive et plurielle de l’Europe, au-delà de la notion de Mitteleuropa.

À travers ses différents projets, Théo-Mario Coppola expérimente le concept de « communautés affectives », méthodologie curatoriale et réflexion critique sur les conditions de fabrication de l’exposition. L’exposition est appréhendée dans sa dimension esthétique et éthique : architecture provisoire, situations, habitudes, récits, anecdotes. À la fois contestation de la hiérarchie, réalité sociale marginale et espace de revendication, les « communautés affectives » affirment de nouvelles modalités pratiques de l’utopie.

Sa pratique curatoriale, à l’intersection de la littérature et de l’engagement politique témoigne d’une ouverture disciplinaire, prenant des formes expérimentales.

Théo-Mario Coppola a été curateur de VILLA PAZZA, troisième édition de la nuit blanche à la Villa Médicis à Rome en octobre 2018. Il a lancé et dirigé la CollezioneTaurisano, une collection privée d’art contemporain dédiée à l’art politique basée à Naples, et a précédemment collaboré avec différentes galeries et lieux indépendants en France et à l’étranger, et des institutions dont les Beaux-Arts de Nantes, la Fondation Boris Lehman à Bruxelles, la résidence 80121 et le MADRE à Naples, le Google Cultural Institute et la plateforme 89plus à Paris. Il a publié des textes critiques dans des revues en France et à l’étranger dont Flash Art, Crash Magazine, Demain Dès l’Aube.

Il est membre du comité éditorial de la revue E IL TOPO. Il est contributeur pour la revue Flash Art.

Théo-Mario Coppola est vice-président de C-E-A, l’association française des commissaires d’exposition.

Il représente l’association au sein du CIPAC, la Fédération française des professionnels de l’art contemporain.

Il représente l’association au sein du groupe de travail « Parité, égalité et diversité » pour le CNPAV.

Il est membre de l’AICA France.
