Nathaniel Katz and Valentina Curandi

Valentina Curandi and Nathaniel Katz are an Italian and American collaborative artist duo. They have been working together since 2008, enacting momentary utopian gestures that emphasize a relational ethic, that focus on the warmth of relationships between individuals in community and in relation to institutions. Their Pacifist Library was realized in New York in September 2012 on the occasion of the exhibition Public Trust at Flux Factory in Long Island City and was supported with funding by the Italian Ministry of Culture’s program for the Mobility of Young Italian Artists.
