Education Opportunity for Artists: the 'Wilds of Venice'

Certificate Course in 'Creative Entrepreneurship + Contemporary Art' 

With The Jealous Curator at the European Cultural Academy in Venice, Italy  

July 15-27, 2019

For two wild weeks this July, The Wild Residency invites you to Italy to study contemporary art, creative entrepreneurship, curatorial studies, and the Venice Biennalé at the European Cultural Academy in collaboration with The Jealous Curator!   Artists, curators, and creatives from all fields and backgrounds have the opportunity for a unique insider's education behind the scenes of the world’s oldest and most prestigious art fair, while intimately collaborating with leading experts in the heart of the rapidly changing art world. 

In the spirit of giving back and building community in the arts through this amazing program where The Wild Residency got its start, eight admission placements are being saved for the Wild Residency community (if you’re reading this, it could be you!).    

This fun and intensive two week certificate course is in collaboration with Danielle Krysa, aka The Jealous Curator: world renowned art writer, curator, artist, and author of four best selling books on contemporary art and creativity including "A Big Important Art Book (Now With Women!)".  This program is an accelerated learning experience set within the context of the 58th Biennalé Arté, with one of the most beautiful cities in the world as your classroom.  This year's 58th Biennalé, "May You Live In Interesting Times" curated by Ralph Rugoff, marks the first time that 50% of exhibiting artists are female.  During this landmark year Canada will be represented by Indigenous Inuit artists for the first time at our Canada's National Pavilion.  In this unique historic context and world class setting, study strategies and approaches unique to your creative endeavours, while connecting with a supportive network of international peers and leading curators in making our wildest creative dreams a reality.

International and Transdisciplinary Art Residency in a cultural heritage village in Sardinia, Italy.

31st May – 24 June 2019 – IVYnode is organizing the 2nd Art Residency Program with the theme “Su Bixinau”, the neighbourhood, in Nurri, a small village in the center of Sardinia.

Thanks to the precious collaboration with Fondazione Sciola, Local Municipality of Nurri, Proloco di Nurri and Archeogeo this 2nd Art Residency will include an Exhibition in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri, a Symposium during the Festival Sant’Arte in San Sperate, and a 2nd Exhibition in San Sperate curated by Fondazione Sciola.

About
The theme of the Art Residency is ‘Su Bixinau’, Sardinian for ‘the neighbourhood’.

The character of the Residency is Transdisciplinary and it is open to artists, researchers, writers or everyone who wish to be integrated in an unique place where is still possible to appreciate authentic aspects.

The participants will live in houses in the village of Nurri, in a calm environment rich in history and beautiful landscapes. During the program the artists will have the possibility to work and exhibit in the Monastery of Santa Rosa  in Nurri, dated XVII century, a perfect surrounding for side specific work and temporary installations. The participants will have the possibility to keep in touch with locals and artisans, who still preserve an ancient knowledge of old techniques that are risking to disappear. Thanks to the professionalism of Archeogeo, the artists can visit archaeological settle, exploring the territory and connecting with the nature, which can also be inspiring for landart projects.

If your art practice embraces community interaction or collaboration in some way, if you like cultural exchange programs and discovering local traditions, if you are interrested in temporary public art or site specific installation, sustainability or other models of art as social practice, this is the residency for you.

The artists participating in the Art Residency in Nurri will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Symposium “Su Bixinau” during the Festival Sant’Arte, guests for 3 days of the Fondazione Sciola, to exhibit their work first in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri and then in San Sperate, during a 2nd exhibition curated by Fondazione Sciola.

Venice International Art Fair is a contemporary art fair that presents collective and solo projects by leading and emerging international artists. Founded in 2001 by ITSLIQUID Group the 11th edition will represent a forum for direct exchange of ideas and contacts between collectors, artists, photographers, designers and art professionals. The art fair features paintings, sculptures, photography art, installations, video art and live performance.

Venice International Art Fair provides artists and exhibitors with the unique opportunity to present their works to an international audience of professionals as curators, gallerists, collectors, editors and publishers who seek to acquire, publish and encourage the best contemporary art talents.

Venice International Art Fair 2019 analyzes the relationship between body and space, and the hybridization between identities and cultural/physical/social/urban settings in contemporary time, through two main sections: LIQUID ROOMS and FUTURE LANDSCAPES.

LIQUID ROOMS 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 redefining their limits and borders, transforming surfaces in 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.

We invite artists, architects and designers to be inspired by the magical power of Venice, exploring the connection between desires, needs, fears through rituals that brings human kind to change, to transform and to evolve their inner world.
                             
We welcome any artist, photographer, gallerist to apply for Venice International Art Fair. You can submit your works or installation project, get a space or a dedicated place where you will be presented internationally.
