Maria C. Miccoli

Assistant curator at VU ART SCIENCE gallery, Amsterdam, Art Historian, independent writer

Amsterdam, North Holland

I am an art historian specialising in Contemporary Art History at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. I am currently co-curating the first exhibition of VU Amsterdam's Art and Science Gallery, which will open in October in Amsterdam Zuidas. The exhibition will focus on the number zero as axial to art, science, technology, and philosophy. Among the artist participating in the exhibition, Jan Robert Leegte and Jennifer Tee, two of the most important contemporary Dutch artists. To broaden the exhibition's concept mentioned above, I am also covering the position of Guest Editor for the next edition of the art history academic journal Kustlicht. The issue will be out in January 2022 and will focus on how zero – as a symbol, a concept, a number – has been adopted by contemporary and modern artists to expand on its simultaneous interpretation of void and fullness. The main goal of my editorial line is to provide some contents that overcome the boundaries between art, philosophy, and science, investigating zero from interdisciplinary perspectives. I am also working on a publication on Italian Feminist Art from the 1970s that will be out for the academic journal Tijdschrift Article.
