>Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea / Rivoli / Europe

The Dreams’ Time Capsule project was hosted at the Castello di Rivoli Museo d’Arte Contemporanea, in Rivoli, from June to September 2014.
Eva Frapiccini was invited to participate in the group exhibition Ritratto dell’ Artista da Giovane | Portrait of the artist as Young (Wo)man, curated by Marcella Beccaria. The exhibitions explored the remarkable development of contemporary art in Italy over the last 10 years, including 25 artists, from the latest generations promoted by the Museum thanks to the generous contribution of the Castello’s friends. In the same exhibition, there was a selection of the work in progress Dream Diary, in which Frapiccini uses some of the dreams of the Dreams Tim Capsule project’s audio archive.
