About

Founded by Giovanna Fazzuoli & Giulia Magno,

Black Box is a Rome-based collective dedicated

to programming international experimental films

and curating exhibitions exploring the shifting

boundaries between cinema and the visual arts.

Their first curation has centered on Chantal Akerman,

for whom a complete retrospective was given at MAXXI (2017) culminating in an exhibition of her

moving image installation Une voix dans le désert

in collaboration with Marian Goodman Gallery

at the Santa Maria della Scala Museum, Siena.

Since then, they curated several exhibitions and

screening programmes –– devoted, among the others,

to Stan Brakhage, Ursula Mayer, Abbas Kiarostami,

Pier Paolo Pasolini, Ming Wong, Luis Buñuel

and Man Ray ––  in several museums across Italy.
