Supported by the Erasmus Programme, Giovanni Rendina is carrying out a year long curatorial traineeship with the Mahler & LeWitt Studios. Rendina read drama, art and music studies at Bologna University before studying for his MA in Curating & Collections at the Chelsea College of Art UAL, London (2015-2016). His professional experience includes co-curating exhibitions at the Zabludowicz Collection, London, and Fondazione Zuchelli, Bologna, as well as assistant curatorial work at Chelsea Space, London (all 2016).

In March 2017 he curated the show ‘A Slump’ at Gelateria sogni di Ghiaccio, Bologna, inviting the London based artist Andrew Mealor to a solo presentation.

He is assisting the Mahler & LeWitt Studios team throughout the summer and will have the opportunity to develop his own curatorial lines of enquiry, culminating in an event or exhibition in the second residency session.
