NOW @ VIGNE MUSEUM – Architecture for nature 

19th May 2018





Every episode offers interviews, meetings, discussions and projects of artists and curators edited with sound bites from various origins.

NOW – New Operation Wave is an international operational network, the principal aim of which is cultural promotion starting by amplifying the confrontation between the various interpreters of the contemporary heralding from the relevant cultural poles.
NOW proposes the creation of self-managed work groups. The succession of NOW meetings guarantees the continuity of relations between participants and ensures the consolidation of the network. We are an open network collaborating with projects and ventures that bring together the same modalities of thinking and action.
Gathering various testimonies, we try to favour the creation of a complex vision. Being more aware in order to freely examine the contemporary.

Zerynthia opened its library to NOW at Via Conte Verde 15 in Rome, becoming a reference point for meetings and making the material of its sound archive and its library available.
