C.F. Contemporary Fire is a contemporary art project by independent curator and writer Caterina Fondelli. Stemming from the great desire to make a personal and original contribution to art, especially the emergent one, Contemporary Fire is an incubator for texts, as reviews, essays and interviews and physical projects like exhibitions and residencies. Pursuing the aim of keeping faith with the values of ethics, professionalism and mutual support among those who take part, it will propose new visions and ways of conceiving art, from individual and collective perspectives.
Caterina Fondelli (1991, San Miniato) is a Tuscany based contemporary art curator. Graduated in Foreign languages, literatures and European artist cultures, she worked as a visitor assistant in some prestigious art museums and institutions in London, UK. Once back to Italy, Caterina obtained a Master degree in Contemporary Art Markets from NABA, Milan, while starting collaborations with contemporary art galleries with roles as gallery assistant and exhibitions coordinator. She writes for art magazines and has recently started to work as independent curator, after attending a course in curatorial practices at the School for Curatorial Studies, Venice.
