Stefano Riba

Stefano Riba began in 2002 working with art as a technician and installer. Back then, while he was physically working in setting up and dismantling shows in galleries and museums, Riba was also undertaking research for my Bachelors and Masters in Aesthetics. This mental and physical attitude toward art practice has never abandoned me. Today Stefano Riba is a curator, but also a professional art installer; he is a writer but also an artists' assistant; Riba is a gallerist but also a craftsman. In the past decade, he worked at/for: Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Museum Ludwig Köln, Fondazione Merz, Castello di Rivoli, Museion, Ar/Ge Kunst, Hangar Bicocca, Manifesta 9 Genk, Biennale di Venezia, Galleria Giorgio Persano, Galleria Michela Rizzo, Galeria Marso. I wrote articles and reviews for Flash Art, Alias, Il Manifesto, Artribune. In 2012 Stefano Riba was a co-founder of PrintAboutMe Micro-Press, an independent publishing house, in the same year he founded VAN DER, a kind of commercial gallery. Since 2014 I curate Passi Erratici, a yearly show about art and mountain that takes place every July at the National Mountain Museum in Turin. Stefano Riba live between Turin and Bozen. As of October 2016, Stefano Riba has been appointed as a contract professor for Exhibit Design and studio assistant for the STUDIO EXHIBIT within the BA Major in Art at the Faculty of Design and Art of the Free University of Bolzano.
