Maria Rapicavoli and Soyoung Yoon will discuss Rapicavoli’s current exhibition A Cielo Aperto, on view at ISCP through April 4th. A Cielo Aperto, an Italian idiomatic expression that can be translated to “Open Sky” contextualizes Rapicavoli’s current and long-term artistic research while seeking to open, and therefore disclose, Sicily’s sky as a space occupied by military forces.

Maria Rapicavoli lives and works in New York. She has recently completed the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (LMCC) Residency Program and was a fellow in the Whitney Independent Study Program. She received her MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College University, London in 2005 and her BA from the Academy of Fine Arts, Catania in 2001. She is the recipient of numerous grants and prizes including the NCTM e l’arte. She was nominated for the Talent Prize in Italy and she received the DEMO/Movin’UP grant in 2011.

Soyoung Yoon is Assistant Professor of Visual Studies, Eugene Lang College, The New School and Joanne Cassullo Faculty Fellow at the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Program.
