Francesco Urbano Ragazzi, also known under the acronym FFUR, is an Italian curatorial duo formed by Francesco Ragazzi (born 1983 in Vicenza, Italy) and Francesco Urbano (born 1984 in Bari, Italy).[1] The duo was formed in 2005 and has gone by the two names since 2011.[1][2] Working on the relationship between contemporary art and reality,[3] the duo has curated exhibitions both in museums and in unconventional venues such as commercial spaces, historical buildings, scientific institutions and websites.[4]

Francesco Urbano Ragazzi’s curatorial projects include:

  • I, You, He, She: A Heterosexual Exhibition (Italian: Io Tu Lui Lei: Una Mostra Eterosessuale) at Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa [it] in Venice in 2012.[5]
  • The 3rd Internet Pavilion: The Unconnected by Greek-born artist Miltos Manetas, in conjunction with the 55th Venice Biennale in 2013.[1][6]
  • The Internet Saga, an exhibition series inaugurated in 2015 with a solo show by Lithuanian-born artist and filmmaker Jonas Mekas at Palazzo Foscari Contarini, a historic Venetian building converted into a fast-food restaurant.[1][7] The series developed through projects, both offline and online, and in collaboration with various public and private institutions, such as 63rd-77th STEPS[8] and Villa Croce Museum of Contemporary Art in Genoa in 2016,[1] the Maraya Art Centre[9] and FARE at the Frigoriferi Milanesi[10] in Milan in 2016-2017,[1] the Fermi LAT Collaboration Meeting held at the CERN main auditorium in Geneva in 2017,[11] Missoni's Surface Conversion project in New York with Jonas Mekas in 2017-2018[12][13] and US artist Cheryl Donagan in 2018-2019,[14][15] the 8th Bucharest Biennale in 2018,[16] the Milan Stock Exchange in 2019,[17] and 5th floor, the digital platform of the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève in 2019 and 2020.[18][19]
  • Jonas Mekas's first retrospective in Asia, Jonas Mekas: Again, again it all comes back to me in brief glimpses, co-curated with Eunhee Kim at the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Korea (MMCA) in Seoul in 2018.[20]

  • HILLARY: The Hillary Clinton Emails, a solo exhibition by US artist and writer Kenneth Goldsmith on the occasion of the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019. Presented on the balcony and in the foyer of Teatro Italia, a cinema converted into a supermarket, the exhibition displayed in printed format the emails that were at the centre of the controversy known as Hillary Clinton's "emailgate".[23] The show was also accompanied by daily film screenings with works selected from UbuWeb.[23] The former US Secretary of State visited the exhibition, which was reported by prominent international news media.[24][25][26] Hillary Clinton herself posted her portrait taken inside the exhibition space on her official Instagram account with a comment reading "Found my emails at the Venice Biennale. Someone alert the House GOP".[24][25][26]
  • The first retrospective of Chiara Fumai [it]'s work, Chiara Fumai: Poems I will Never Release, 2007–2017, co-curated with Milovan Farronato and in collaboration with Andrea Bellini, at the Centre d'Art Contemporain Genève in 2020-2021.[27][28]
