Chiara Bertola

Chiara Bertola is Head of Exhibitions and Collections at Castello di Rivoli. After a BA in History of Modern and Contemporary Art at Università di Genova, followed by an MA degree in Curatorial Studies at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan, she began working as assistant curator at Castello di Rivoli where, in 2006, she curated the exhibition Libri Books Bücherdedicated to artists’ books. Driven by a greater interest in production and conservation, since 2008 she has occupied her current position, which has allowed her to work on exhibitions dedicated to artists including Anna Boghiguian, Gilberto Zorio, Hito Steyerl, as well as on multiple hangings of the permanent Collection, and on the production of works such as Procession of Reparationistsby William Kentridge. She is also co-creator of the Arte povera domaniproject, aimed at creating an oral archive for the transmission of knowledge and memory about the exhibition and conservation processes of Arte Povera works. Between 2015 and 2016 she also worked at Giuseppe Penone’s studio and archive.
