Pieroni will discuss the key curatorial concepts in the show, which reimagines the collaborative artists’ book and project ‘Putti’s Pudding’ (1989) by writer Cookie Mueller and her partner, artist Vittorio Scarpati who both died from AIDS related complications that year. The show features “forty–five original felt–tip pen on notepad drawings made by Scarpati when he lost the ability to speak,” with accompanying texts by Mueller.
The exhibition featured a number of events, including a performance by David Hoyle, a series of film screenings selected by Juliet Jacques and a number of talks by Alice Butler, Adam Christensen, Paul Flynn and Allison Katz, among others.
