Director, Mostyn - Writer & Curator
Internationally acclaimed writer and curator in modern and contemporary art, film, video, photography, and new media, Alfredo Cramerotti’s work explores the relationship between reality and representation across TV, radio, image-making, publishing, critical writing, and curated exhibitions. His research includes the theory and practice of “expanded photography: the hyperimage”, which investigates digital culture’s impact on artistic and curatorial practices, and “aesthetic journalism”, a concept he created to investigate the relationship between contemporary exhibitions and elements of interview, documentary, fiction and reportage. His rhizomatic approach led him to direct MOSTYN, Wales’ foremost contemporary art institute, and to being appointed Head Curator of APT Artist Pension Trust as well as the roaming curatorial agencies AGM Culture and CPS Chamber of Public Secrets.
Amongst other exhibitions, in 2015 he co-curated the Mauritius Pavilion at the 56th Venice Art Bienniale, Italy, and Sequences VII, real-time festival biennial in Reykjavik, Iceland; in 2013, the Maldives Pavilion and the Wales Pavilion at the 55th Venice Art Bienniale, Italy; and in 2010, Manifesta 8, the European Biennial of Contemporary Art, Region of Murcia, Spain, in 2010.
Cramerotti is Editor in Chief of the Critical Photography series by Intellect Books, and his own publications include the book Aesthetic Journalism: How to inform without informing (2009) and Unmapping the City: Perspective on Flatness (2010).
