Born in Aversa in 1993, Vincenzo Di Marino obtained his MFA in Curatorial Studies at Naba in Milan. Working as independent curator he seeks a dialogic approach based on “contact”. Recently he focuses his research on the relation with the otherness, in a way oriented to the attempt to redefine own singularity in
confrontation with “the other”. He actively contributes with Umberto Di Marino gallery, taking care of art production, installation and fairs’s organization. He worked in last few years with Prada Foundation in Milan and with Madre Museum in Naples, working on installation, production and curatorship of several exhibitions. In the last year he co-founded the curatorial research project Bite The Saurus based in Naples.
