On August 8, 2015, Tusa Nero su Bianco held an Artists' Presentation of the International Curatorial Project of Marianne Bernstein, Due South. A participating artist of Due South, Serena Perrone, served as emcee and translator.
Due South is an international curatorial project conceived and curated by Marianne Bernstein, the second in a quartet of artistic investigations into volcanic islands: Due North (2014- Iceland), Due South (2017-Sicily), Due East, and Due West. Bernstein has worked for decades on temporary or nomadic projects designed to push the boundaries of both how art is made and experienced by others. Participating artists work locally and internationally across many disciplines; cross-fertilization and collaboration is encouraged. In 2017, the resulting works by these Sicilian/Italian and American artists will be exhibited at The Delaware Contemporary.
In addition to Marianne Bernstein and Serena Perrone, the artists in attendance who presented their work included: David Kessler, Andrea Hornick, Carlo and Fabio Ingrassia, Glauco Canalis, Federico Baronella, and Flavio Favelli. David Kessler, Andrea Hornick, and Marianne Bernstein all spent 2-3 weeks in Tusa in 2015 as part of their ongoing research for the project, and the Officina Stamperia del Notaio hosted a two-day retreat during which time some of these American and Italian artists were able to meet and discuss their work.
