Ettore Favini was born in Cremona, Italy in 1974. He taps the experience of listening to “minor” narratives to fuel works that map the relationship between people and their environment. Memory, both individual and collective, is often at the center of a path that moves from autobiographical sources of inspiration toward universal themes like time and existance. His works, which tend to be site-specific, are developed through a long growth process that renders them living organism, never truly finished: open-ended devices of vision in which the work partakes in life and the viewer becomes an active participant. Favini has received the Artegiovane award from the Milan and Turin Chambers of Commerce (2005) and the prestigious Premio New York from Columbia University (2007). Favini has been shortlisted for the Castello di Rivoli prize (2009), and shared the 48th Premio Suzzara (2013) with Antonio Rovaldi, NCTM Art Avard (2017). He has shown his work, among others, at the Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Genoa; MAN – Museo d’Arte della Provincia di Nuoro; Italian Academy of Columbia University, New York; ISCP, New York; Ocat, Shanghai; SongEun Art Space, Seoul; Italian Cultural Institute, Tirana; Centre for Contemporary Art Futura, Prague; Manifesta 9 Parallel Events, Genk; Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; Villa Panza, Varese; GAM, Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan; PAC, Milan; MAGA, Gallarate; Santa Maria Maggiore, Bergamo; CCC Strozzina, Florence; Villa Medici, Accademia di Francia, Rome; Fondazione Pastificio Cerere, Rome; American Academy, Rome; Fondazione Olivetti, Rome; Museo Riso, Palermo.
He is currently on the Visual Arts faculty of NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belli Arti in Milan and Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara Bergamo.
Alfredo Rodriguez is born at Madrid in 1976, where is still living and working. Alfredo considers his work as a research about photography and its processes. This results in a work that questions the ways of obtaining the image, emphasizingthe concept of photography as a single object. He tries to provide a physical history to his works by interleaving multiple processes between obtaining an image and the final result as an object. This is related to the idea of an object containing memories moving through time, and it effects in the perception of the image. He is focusing now in developing self-made photographic processes by researching the History of photography from its birth until now. He started in photography at Art School 10 and specialized in the history of photographic processes at ESCRBC in Madrid.

After studying in Modern and Contemporary History he specialized in Visual Arts and Curatorial Studies at NABA Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti in Milan, where he was assistant professor to the Public Art course. His research reflects on the nature of power systems and the mechanisms for removing productive systems. Through analytical voyeurism, he points out the contradictory and schizophrenic sides of a post ideological present.
