Overview

Giuseppe Stampone was born in Cluses, France in 1974. He is an Italian artist who lives and works between Rome and Bruxelles. From 1997 to 2001 he attended a Master in Contemporary Techniques at the Academy of Fine Arts in L’Aquila, Italy. He is currently a lecturer at the Academy of Fine Arts in Urbino. He is the founder of Solstizio Project (www.solstizio.org) that collaborates with the European Union and has been developed in different countries around the world. Stampone’s artistic quest represents the synthesis and formalisation of the concept encapsulated by the term Global Education. The work of Giuseppe Stampone is that of an artist-activist in an age of so-called crisis. In a time of rising public vigilance, his art is unabashedly a potent form of political protest. His artistic output ranges from interactive multimedia installations to monumental and participatory public art projects. Stampone has been exhibited in several solo shows in galleries like Eduardo Secci Contemporary (Florence), Galleria Prometeo (Milano, Lucca) and Marie-Laure-Fleisch Gallery (Brussels). His works feature in a number of international museums, foundations and biennals, to mention a few: CIAC - Centro Italiano Arte Contemporanea (2018); Architecture Biennal of Seoul, Corea del Sud (2017); Triennale of Ostenda, Belgium (2017); Base progetti per l’arte, Florence (2017); Fuori Uso, Pescara (2016); 56th Venice Biennal, Italy (2015); Kochi-Muziris Biennal, Kerala, India (2012); 11th Havana Biennal, Cuba (2012); Liverpool Biennal, UK (2010); 14th and 15th Rome Quadriennal, Italy (2004–2008); Massachusetts Institute of Technology  Museum of Boston, USA (2016); The American Academy of Rome, Italy (2008-2013-2014-2015); Museum of Art Kunsthalle of Gwangju, South Korea; Wilfredo Lam  Contemporary Art Center of Avana, Cuba;  MAXXI – Museo Nazionale delle Arti del 21mo Secolo of Rome, Italy; MACRO – Museo dell’Arte Contemporanea of Rome, Italy; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin, Italia; Palazzo Reale, Milan, Italy; Bovisa Triennal, Milan, Italy; Cabaret Voltaire, Zurigo, Svizzera; GAMeC – Galleria D’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea, Bergamo, Italy; The InvisibleDog Art Center, Brooklyn – NYC, USA. His works are also part of prestigious public collections, among these: Houston Museum of Fine Arts,  Houston, TX; Museo MAXXI, Rome, Italy; Biennal Kochi-Muziris Foundation, Kerala, India; Sidney Biennal Foundation, Australia; Rome Quadriennal Foundation, Italy; Museo di Arte Contemporanea MACRO, Rome, Italy; Phelan Foundation, New York, USA; GAMeC Museum of Bergamo, Italy; Wilfredo LAM Museum of Contemporary Art, Havana, Cuba;  Birbragher Foundation, Bogotà, Colombia; La Farnesina Collection, Rome, Italy; La Gaia Foundation, Busca, Italy; Museo di Arte Contemporanea L.Pecci, Prato, Italy.
