About the Project
The Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk is named in honor of Riverfront Recapture’s long time CEO, Joe Marfuggi. With both vision and the ability to bring people of all cultures, interests and ages together at the waters edge, his humility and persistence will be honored and his story is one that needs to be documented. The Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk is to be a celebration of Riverfront Recapture’s success led by a beloved man who encouraged participation by the example of hard work and an impish sense of humor. 

The Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk will extend 2.5 miles from Riverside Park to Windsor Meadows, creating connections through our future park to Windsor, South Windsor, and Keney Park.  Construction will begin in the spring of 2022 and be complete by the end of 2022. 

Art will be installed in five locations along the riverwalk, and visual storytelling will be incorporated all along the riverwalk. The budget for art installations along the Joe Marfuggi Riverwalk is $340,000.

Enclave Land Art. Open call for the third edition of the artistic residency

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

ENCLAVE LAND ART and the Vall de Gallinera council (Alicante, Spain) with the support of Cultura Resident from Consorci de Museus de la Comunitat Valenciana and the Direcció General del Cultura i Patrimoni de la Generalitat Valenciana, are glad to announce the open call for the Third Edition of the Enclave Land Art Residency.

Submissions should focus on the dialogue between human beings and nature so as to create an artistic Land Art itinerary in the area.

We will select seven projects from different artistic disciplines that will be developed and produced in the natural environment during the two weeks of the Art Residency, sharing experiences, ideas and a common goal.

All projects must take into consideration people's interest in contemporary arts, aiming to give greater value to the area of Vall de Gallinera, promoting a deep and permanent conscience about the historical, cultural and traditional aspects of the territory through a dialogue between art and nature.

Concept: 

"Truly memory does not consist at all of a regression from the present to the past, but rather in a progress from the past to the present."

Bergson H., Matter and Memory, 2006.

The power of intangibleness in art could be considered to be the core of creation and transformation: perception, habits, culture, language, time or memory can be channels used to define artistic research.

This symbiosis between tangible and immaterial is what, along with history, builds the identity of a territory. There are many important elements in Vall de Gallinera apart from its geologic structure and its natural heritage, like for example the vestiges from prehistory up to the civil war, passing through Iberian villages, funerary steles and medieval castles. This historical legacy, traces of human beings along the millennia, has been preserved in this enclave thanks to its natural idiosyncrasy. They are the physical result of a non-linear time that presents a dialogue of human beings with nature through its layers. These layers could be metaphorically a book (nature itself) where the territory's inhabitants have written their story and defined their identity.

Nature has since forever been a spiritual source of research and inspiration for human beings. It is not a coincidence that one can see trees in the forms of the columns in the churches, or caves in the arches, and many other examples. This union appears represented in different styles and functions, and in what remains when time and various factors alter them.

Due to this connection between absence/presence that is preserved nowadays, the inner identity has been reinforced with nature as witness. These are the elements that the selected artists will be invited to reinterpret through their projects.

Enclave Land Art aims to start a new chapter, leaving a contemporary trace to continue this dialogue with the environment through contemporary art. The relationship with what remains, together with what is not visible but nonetheless is present and forms part of Vall de Gallinera's people, represents who the locals are nowadays as a result of the path trodden.

Duration of the open call: 

From the 15th of August until the 10th of October 2021.

Deadline:

10 pm (mainland Spain’s time zone) on the 10th of October 2021.

Summer in Athens

Share

Eligibility:

Every summer our thought is on vacation, the sea and the cool breeze on an island. But what happens when this thought does not come true and we live in Athens? Many times we observe the increased movement on the balconies of apartment buildings, the love of people for the invention of air conditioning, but also the relaxation, perhaps in the seaside of Athens.

Athens is an urban area mainly, where you meet many different people. Some have the opportunity to enjoy their summer in a relaxed way and some do not, while many of them work.

We call artists world to identify with the public of Athens and to depict daily snapshots in various areas of the city. The aim of the exhibition is to promote, both in a realistic and humorous way, mainly through photos and sketches, the neighborhoods from different areas of Athens in the summer, drawing inspiration from the rising temperatures, the consequences of climate change, but also the economic facilities, or difficulties one faces today.

Information & Guidelines

- The exhibition will be presented online from 22 September to 22 October.

- Each creator or group is invited to submit up to three projects for selection.

- The deadline for submission of projects expires on September 5, 2021.

- The application should include: a. Digital photos of the works - Project titles, dimensions, technique, year of creation, short description, words-phrases that will accompany the works | b. Short CV in text format (up to 100 words) and photo (optional) | c. Address, contact numbers, email, social media

- Participation fee: 50 € (up to 3 works). For selected projects ONLY.
