The American Academy in Rome is delighted to present the latest performance by Autumn Knight, the 2022 Nancy B. Negley Rome Prize Fellow in visual arts. LETTO, directed by Knight and performed by Michelangelo Miccolis and Nick Kleist, is a durational live performance and sound installation exploring sweetness, nothingness, and rehearsing loss. The work is inspired by a 1994 interview between Hans Ulrich Obrist and Félix González-Torres. Tina Tallon (2022 Fellow) is a collaborator in sound design.

LETTO was made possible through the support of the American Academy in Rome Fellows’ Project Fund.
