Primavera evokes spring and new beginnings. What does it mean to restart one’s art practice in a foreign land? How does one assimilate into their new surroundings and recreate their own narrative in a forest of foreign signs? How does Paris stir up emotions?

Hosted & Organised by Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art
The Dena Foundation is an organization that acts as a medium, bringing mediation within the contemporary art world to the next stage. Its mission is to step in when and where something is missing to achieve the success of a great artistic enterprise. Its three key words are the promotion, the support and the dissemination of contemporary Italian creation in France and the United States, but from that focus it has grown to bring young contemporary artists and curators from Singapore to Europe. At the heart of its mission, the Artists and Curators Residency Program in Paris and in New York offers young artists and curators the opportunity for an extended and informal form of education, beyond the field of higher education.
