Alfredo Cramerotti's talk, "Together to Explain Why an Action is Continuing: Still Yet," will address the juncture between art, aesthetics, and journalism as addressed in his book Aesthetic Journalism: How to Inform Without Informing.

 

Alfredo Cramerotti is an internationally acclaimed writer and curator in modern and contemporary art, film, video, photography, and new media. His work includes the theory and practice of "expanded photography: the hyperimage", which investigates digital culture's impact on artistic and curatorial practices, and "aesthetic journalism," a concept he created to investigate the relationship between contemporary exhibitions and elements of interview, documentary, fiction, and reportage. He directs MOSTYN, Wales' foremost contemporary art institute, and is Head Curator of APT Artist Pension Trust as well as the roaming curatorial agencies AGM Culture and CPS Chamber of Public Secrets.

He is curator of the EXPO Video program, part of this year's EXPO Chicago, which runs September 17–20, 2015 at Navy Pier. Among other exhibitions, in 2015 he co-curated the Mauritius Pavilion at the 56th Venice Art Bienniale, Italy, and Sequences VII, real-time festival biennial in Reykjavik, Iceland; in 2013, the Maldives Pavilion and the Wales Pavilion at the 55th Venice Art Bienniale, Italy; in 2010, Manifesta 8, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Region of Murcia, Spain; and in 2006, the Made in Video Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark. Cramerotti is Editor in Chief of the Critical Photography series by Intellect Books, and his own publications include the book Aesthetic Journalism: How to inform without informing (2009) and Unmapping the City: Perspective on Flatness (2010).
