Robert and Russell meet leading gallerist & ceramicist Tommaso Corvi-Mora. We discuss growing up in Italy, moving to Germany for a pivotal first summer job working with Alighiero Boetti for a Bonner Kunstverein show, becoming a gallery assistant with Esther Shipper in Cologne, his early love of artist Joseph Beuys, and his longterm passion for the late Cuban-American artist Félix González-Torres. We explore collecting art, how he started his gallery in South London in the same building as Greengrassi (owned by his partner Cornelia Grassi), his representation of leading artists including Lynette Yiadom-Boakye, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster, Alvaro Barrington, Jennifer Packer, Roger Hiorns and Adam Buick. Plus we learn about his own recent artistic career making ceramics, including a number of successful exhibitions curated by fashion designer Duro Olowu. See Tommaso’s new ceramics in Collect art fair at Somerset House with Made in Britaly. Plus he’s giving a ‘Lightning Talk’ at Collect on Saturday 29th February and will also be part of Camden Arts Centre’s ‘Ceramics Circle’ event on March 8th 2020. Follow @corvimora for the gallery’s Instagram and @tcmceramics for his ceramic work!
