Attilia Fattori Franchini is an independent curator and writer based in London and Vienna. Working on the creation of experimental contexts for the production and display of contemporary practices, her work deals with technology and power structures, moving image and the cinematic, materialist feminism, late-capitalism and the creation of alternative forms of subjectivity and representation. Her practice unfolds as dialectics exercised through collaboration. She is the curator of BMW Open Work by Frieze for which she has realised solo presentations by Madeline Hollander (2020), Camille Blatrix (2019), Sam Lewitt (2018), Olivia Erlanger (2017); Curva Blu, a residency project on the island of Favignana, Sicily; and the Emergent section of miart Milan. She contributes essays and reviews to international catalogs and publications such as Mousse, CURA., and Flash Art International and is co-founder of the nonprofit platform Opening Times (otdac.org).
