Art Center Padula is an arts organization, founded as a means to contribute to the revitalization of the southern Italian village of Padula.  The core elements of our project, including our Artist Residency Program, are activities that work together to develop new internal and external social networks in Padula and to re-energize existing ones. We believe that these new or rejuvenated networks will aid in the re-discovery of local creative practices and resources, and encourage the renewal of the historic center. A key priority of this project is to help shift the way people (locally, regionally, and internationally) think about where, how, and why creative and cultural production happens. 

Our Artist-in-Residence program welcomes artists and writers working in a variety of mediums and genres to live and work in the historic center of Padula, immersing themselves in our way of life here and becoming part of the fabric of the community for the duration of their stay.  There are no required activities for participants. We trust that residents will use their time in the way that best fuels their creative practice, whether that be to reflect and dream, work and produce, or experiment and play.

Residency periods last for three weeks (18 days), with the possibility for an artist to combine two or more sessions in order to have a longer stay stay of up to 3 months. Cost per resident is about €875 per session. 

We offer each artist a private room and a luminous private studio space at Casa Padula, one of Padula's oldest and most stately residences. Studios range from 16 to 20 sq. meters (175 to 215 sq. ft.).  Residents also have use of the large kitchen, the sunroom, il salotto verde (the green salon), library room and the extensive gardens at Casa Padula. We currently host between 3 and 5 artists at a time.  We can also accommodate artist couples/pairs who wish to share living and/or working spaces. 

Residents are invited to be our guests at a group dinner every Friday. All other meals are the resident's responsibility. The common kitchen will be supplied with staple items where you can for prepare meals at home.

CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR, organized by ITSLIQUID Group in collaboration with ACIT Venice – Italian-German Cultural Association, will be held in Venice, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and in other prestigious venues between January 27 and April 24, 2023.

The word “canvas” was used for the first time in Italy in the 14th century and it has become the most common support medium for oil painting, replacing wooden panels. Over the centuries, the canvas’ meaning has changed, starting from paintings, through photographic and cinematographic film, exploring the human body, to the digital world. Canvas is the creatives’ common ground, on which they can express themselves. We invite all the artists to share their personal artistic research through any kind of media, from painting to sculptures and installation, from photography to video art and live performance.
 

CANVAS INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR consists of 3 main events:

– BODYSPACES from January 27 to February 15, 2023, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello

ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023 - 6th EDITION

Eligibility:

ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023 – 6th edition, organized by ITSLIQUID Group, will be held in Rome, at Medina Art Gallery from February 10 to February 24, 2023.

ROME INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2023 analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary times, through two main sections: MIXING IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

MIXING IDENTITIES analyzes the hidden parts of our identities, through an immersive experience inside the fascinating universe of the complex labyrinths of our consciousness. The human body is a changing system that connects us with other bodies and spaces to perceive the surrounding reality; a strong communication system with its own language and infinite ways of expression.

FUTURE LANDSCAPES are abstract, infinite and conceptual, associated with a sense of freedom and infinite extension. Primarily experienced with the mind, spaces redefine their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in an open flow of pure ideas. This section focuses on the concept of the borders and the structures between body, mind and soul, the human identity and the city, the space and the ground.

Location: 
Medina Art Gallery Via Angelo Poliziano 32-34, 00184, Roma, Italy
Deadline:

Eligibility:

TAKING TIME / PRENDENDO TEMPO INDIVIDUAL RESIDENCIES

Applications are open to creative practitioners such as visual artists, film makers, writers, performance artists, curators, designers, musicians, theatre-makers and researchers who work either individually or collaboratively. Individuals and groups are welcomed. Interdisciplinary applications from creatives who work across disciplines are encouraged.

Each individual residency provides uninterrupted periods of time with no expectation of a final outcome. Whether you wish simply to be up close to your practice, allow nature to suffuse your thinking and feeling, produce new work or complete a project, The Museum of Loss and Renewal will do  its utmost to ensure that you can achieve what you set out to do.

Location
The residency is located in Collemacchia, a small village within Italy’s National Park of Abruzzo, Lazio and Molise, a protected area of exceptional significance and beauty. Engagement with the natural world begins on the doorstep and the stunning mountainous landscape offers an excellent environment for reflective practice. The ancient, undisturbed and extensive terrain holds a rich and complex history visible in the area’s architecture, customs, agricultural lands and forests.

The area is sparsely populated by villages that are largely trilingual Italian-French-English due to the large community of emigrants who continually move between European nations, stemming from economic migration dating from approx. 1850. The village has been home to Tracy Mackenna’s family for centuries and the curators of The Museum of Loss and Renewal foster strong links with the local community which is highly supportive of the Residency Programme.Accommodation
Residents are accommodated in two comfortable houses situated a couple of minutes walk from each other. Houses have fully equipped kitchens, bathrooms, sitting rooms, and double, twin and single bedrooms (single use bedrooms can be allocated dependent on availability). Bedlinen, towels, hairdryer, washing machine, ironing board, exercise mat etc. are provided. Central heating and internet throughout. Cleaning is included in cost.

Studio space
Located in two buildings, situated a couple of minutes walk from each other. Recently renovated and include indoor and outdoor making spaces, and desk space (in houses and studios). Internet throughout.

“It was wonderfully restorative in every sense. Such a perfect environment that you have created; the space, the library, studios, people and of course Collemacchia itself. I feel very privileged to have been there.”

MONOCHROMES

Free entry│Call for Exhibition

Photographers are invited to submit 1 up to 3 photos addressing the theme.

Group Exhibition in Rome. September 2023

-

This call aims to collect monochrome photographic images containing tonal scales of gray or other chromatisms. Beginning with the black and white photographic images, the monochrome product is always intended as an abstraction of reality and as a representation of certain levels of human perception, of the visible and not, through which we gather information on the relationship of humankind with the world.

The Call "Monochromes" also intends to recall the aesthetic-artistic trends that arose from the 50s and 60s, in which color has a primary function in conveying or reinforcing messages and meanings, aimed at arousing emotional reactions on the part of the observer.
