Agostino Quaranta is a London-based artist, DJ and music producer. His work focuses on making site-specific installations and cultivating a mixed media and research-based practice. He integrates interests in architecture with sound and moving image while focusing on music cultures, oral traditions and a constant search for the vernacular. In 2018, he started Turbo Sud, a project aiming to document the contemporary and traditional music scenes of Southern Italy between the factual and the imaginary.
Following his residency at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in 2019, he presented the pop-up exhibition Turbo Sud Lab in May 2022 and hosted a DJ set inside James Turrel’s Deer Shelter Skyspace. Alongside his practice as a visual artist, he has curated radio shows under the monikers AGOSTINO and Turbo Sud for radios including NTS, Ma3azef, and Foundation FM, and performed at various electronic music festivals.
