META is a collective created by Rocco Donà and Nicola Novello, whose aim is to explore and experiment with fields such as art, design and education. Investigating various forms of communication, the collective engages with diverse projects from exhibitions to independent publications from research projects to individual work and proposals as well as multimedia and curatorial endeavours looking at ways to inform, reflect and disorder.
META carries out its curatorial and authorial activities through entropic publications, aimed at de-formatting contemporary knowledge. The collective also aims at distributing outside conventional channels and is actively engaged in defending and expanding spaces for expression and collaboration dedicated to emerging and independent artists. META also works as a commissioned studio dealing with book making, graphic design, editing, consulting and curating practices for artists, collectives, institutions and individuals.
META bases its creative process on inter-disciplinary approaches and research: through self-initiated projects and at-large collaborations, it investigates communication, participation and reflection practices. The productions focus on processes, languages and narratives with the aim of thinking about the right communication device and at the same time create transversal links between various methods and fields of research.
