Patrizia Genovesi

Patrizia Genovesi is a significant presence in the panorama of contemporary photography and video art. Her interest in the quality of the image and the equilibrium of the composition, deeply influenced by the best Italian painting tradition, together with her fascination with technology and the search for contamination and expression synergies between different arts, position her work among the most interesting of this period.

Genovesi metabolized a scientific education while at the same time nurturing her eclectic artistic sensibility by restlessly studying photography for which she had Leonard Freed and Richard Kalvar of the Magnum Photos agency among her teachers, painting and music, plus other abilities like screenwriting, with well-known Italian director Mario Monicelli and writer Domenico Starnone, and theater direction, with Argentinian theatre specialist Renzo Casali.

Her photographs of Nobel Prize laureates, including Rita Levi-Montalcini, John Nash, Richard Ernst, Robert Mundell, and Frank Wilczeck have been published by the Nobel Prize Organization. Her portrait of Mrs. Levi-Montalcini was publicly exhibited in Kamienna Gora – Poland – during the celebrations for the Nobel Prize laureate Victor Hamburger. Her portraits of photographer Leonard Freed have been accepted as part of the permanent collection of the Musée de la Photographie in Charleroi – Belgium -.

 

Genovesi is also active in designing, creating and organizing events that leverage and exploit the synergies of photography and other expression languages commonly thought of as distant, such as symphonic music often performed onsite with a live orchestra, digital technology, and architecture. Such events, which strongly appeal to a modern and conscientious public, have been successfully performed in a variety of locations in Italy and abroad, including institutional spaces, airports, museums and public libraries.
