ABOUT OUR PRIZE

 

Il Varco invites you to join the second edition of the Passepartout Photography Prize, a photography contest born to promote and widen the exposure of emerging photographers.

Our mission is to be your “Passe-partout” – which means a master key and also a framing method to enhance the power of the artwork within.

Passepartout Photography Prize aims to support the development of talented photographers from all over the world by providing 1,000 euros in monetary award every year and exhibition opportunities in a prestigious venue in the heart of Rome, Italy. This is a perfect platform to start your career in contemporary art and photography industries on an international scale.

Every year we will announce multiple calls for entries and select a winner of each edition who will be awarded 500 euros. Plus, all the finalists will have another chance to be selected for the Passepartout annual collective exhibition. 

 

Photographic works of any kind of artistic style, size and technique (digital, film and experimental processes, digital collages and other mixed media) are accepted.

 

The application is open to both professional and amateur photographers from all over the world without any age limit.

Passepartout embraces innovative and original creativity in contemporary photography.

We welcome various artistic languages applied to the photographic image, including, but not limited to, experimentation and fusion of different genres.

The first annual exhibition will take place in Rome (Italy) in 2021 for two weeks to be seen. The exhibition will be hosted by 28 Piazza di Pietra Gallery, an international fine art gallery specialized in contemporary art of both emerging and established international artists. The gallery is located in the historic center of Rome where local and international visitors and art collectors gather. This modern gallery beautifully integrated and built on the ancient ruin of the Hadrian Temple structure is an impeccable site to display artworks of many genres.

THE DREAMER
Call for Exhibition 
Acceptedmedia: Photography, Digital Visual Design
Group Exhibition in Rome or Milan city. April 2021
-
As in the experience of dream, the dreamer is immersed in the world of images and inner perceptions, in a more or less conscious state of detachment from the perceptible world, and transported by osmosis by the call of an idea or an image in which the "dreamer" finds an answer to a request of fulfillment of the senses. Hopes, memories and fantasies attract the "dreamer" to the same world in which the will and of a goal finds its first phase of creation. Every aesthetic production arises from here, from the conscious thought and image, manifested by the “dreamer", receiver and transmitter of himself through the means of his own existence.

Borders Festival - Fragmented Identities

Eligibility:

CALL FOR ARTISTS
BORDERS 2020 | FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES
ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival
Deadline: August 02, 2020

ITSLIQUID Group, in collaboration with Venice Events and ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, is pleased to announce the open call for FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES, second appointment of BORDERS – ITSLIQUID International Art and Architecture Festival.

BORDERS Festival, curated by Arch. Luca Curci, will be presented in Venice at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and in other prestigious venues from September 03 to October 02, 2020.

The first edition of BORDERS Festival took place in Venice in 2016, in the same period of the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale, presenting a great selection of more than 500 art and architecture works realized by 180 artists and architects, coming from 36 countries. Never as this time the concept of the exhibition seems to be epochal: since 3 months, the humankind coexists at a distance to stay closer. The new invisible borders generated by the covid-19 are creating new ways of living everyday life, new human connections, re-thinking common spaces and entire cities. Could the new “borders” be the solution?

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by this new era, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears that brings humankind to change, to transform and to evolve our inner world.

The festival focuses on the concept of “borders”, between the soul and the body, the human being and the city, the city and the ground. The festival analyzes the idea of human and urban borders, how people live them and how they are modified in contemporary society. Every human being lives in a world in which the limits, the borders, shape their attitudes and behaviors, limiting the freedom and creating a sense of alienation. The human being reacts breaking the limits and finding a new way of life. We imagine a world of “liquid cities”, where differences create new possibilities instead of being social barriers.

Human identities are both separated and related one to another into a big mosaic that complete the existence and the world culture. All the identities can be considered as fragmented pieces of human being, ready to be unique and shareable in a universe with physical limits. In art people are mixed together in a melting pot of sensation and fluctuating emotions. The challenge is to see all those fragmented identities, recognize and use them to see things through many different points of view and imagination in order to broke all barriers and boundaries of every day’s life and to create the relationship between man and space, including man-built and natural spaces. There is not a unique perspective on our unconscious beings and identities, showing how things are rarely whole or perfect.

BORDERS Festival consists of 3 main events: BODIES+CITIES SKIN (July 23 / August 21, 2020), FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES. We are now selecting artists for the following two upcoming events:

– FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES from September 03 to October 02, 2020 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space and from September 04 to October 02, 2020 at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello
Deadline for applications is August 02, 2020 (11.59 PM of your local time)
