ART WOMAN - Geo-Graphies

Share

Country:

City:

Primo Piano Special Project is pleased to announce the "Geo-Graphies" exhibition for ART WOMAN 2020. The exhibition will take place at the Palmieri Foundation in the old city of Lecce from 7 to 21 March 2020. The exhibition is curated by Dores Sacquegna, and it is under Auspicies of the Municipality of Lecce because it is included in the calendar of Itinerario Rosa, an artistic itinerary dedicated to women artists. Palmieri Foundation is located in the Renaissance church of Saint Sebastian in the old city of Lecce. After various uses and a careful restoration by the noble Palmieri family this splendid place has been restored to the visibility of international visitors, thanks to a program of artistic and cultural events.

About theme: Geo (earth) and Graphia (writing) become the key concepts on which the plurality of the various artistic interventions required here are grafted. The relationship with the earth, myth, work, prayer, dreams, abstractions, rituals are just some of the nomadic words that can be taken into consideration for a search outside and within time and that can activate in the observer , the sense of the world, which every human being must carry with him starting from his own cultural roots.Like an ancient prayer made of silences, the artist woman thinks and creates with her slow and introspective rhythm: a therapy that makes art a means to live healthy and that marks the geography of our time.

Ilhabela Island, Brazil - Art Residence Open call 2019/2020

Share

Country:

City:

A multidisciplinary space to focus in ideas and projects in an ecological paradise.

Description of residency program
Casa na Ilha is a creative retreat in Ilhabela Island, Brazil, an ecological paradise and preservation area at 200 km from Sao Pablo.

The Residency Program is an initiative born from the idea of artists from different disciplines to create a space where creativity is encouraged, focusing in the construction of the creative process, development and curatorial process of artistic and environmental engaged projects in one place away from the city and distractions of the daily routine.

Casa Na Ilha Residency programs run in a house built by an artist above the sea level. It is 800 meters from the beach and 4 km away from the island historical center and town. Emplaced in the middle of the rainforest on the top of a hill, surrounded with nature and a breathtaking view to the ocean, beach, palm trees and mountains.

Located north in the island, the house is walking distance from the beach and waterfalls. The absolute peace and tranquility of the place are perfect for feeding inspiration and disconnection with the world today that generally cause blockages between the artist and their work. Close to natural waterfalls, a garden full of flowers, trees, orchards, and spring water supplies, birds and ocean sounds, creates the perfect environment to relax the mind and focus on projects.

Casa na Ilha is a retreat space to devote time and focus to your creative pursuits in an ecological paradise. Artists can intensely dedicate on their work in progress or develop new projects. The main goal is that artists are able to focus on their ideas and projects, enhancing creativity and inspiration and connect, between them, the local community and nature.

Casa na Ilha welcomes artists with a professional standing in their field and emerging artists of promising talent.

Duration of residency
The Residency Program is 3 - 4 weeks long duration between 5 - 8 artists at a time. In case projects require it, participants may apply for a longer period.

Expectations towards the artist
Casa na Ilha is a space where to develop, improve and curate personal and group projects in an interdisciplinary ambiance, nurturing for different views opinions and expertise.  The residency program promotes the development of projects in all stages, from the conception of the idea to the presentation of the same.

Artists work on a self-directed residency: you will have uninterrupted, self-directed work time. We will not pressure you to deliver finished work; you can focus solely on research and development of ideas. However, during your stay there will be a tutor on location 24/7 to discuss ideas, projects and progress of work during the duration of the residency time, respecting artists pace and direction. We do not provide a set program or itinerary for artists to follow, sessions and tutor advice and support will be approached personally case by case around artists self-directed practices. Tutor will give you guidance as well as help make the necessary contacts, approaches and arrangements with different parties the project requires. 

Each sessions hosts 4 – 6 artists at the same time, from different disciplines, giving the opportunity to artists in residency to gain new ideas and insights that can be applied to creative exploration and the development of their work through peer interaction and discussion groups. Common spaces will be conceived to promote not only collaboration between the artists, but to empower ideas between different participants and interdisciplinary learning. Casa na Ilha embraces the role of being an active platform of thinking, discussion, production and sharing through daily interactions open to share and exchange ideas and perspectives among participants.

Casa na Ilha gathers individuals with different expertise, sensibilities, skills and backgrounds committed to contribute to the enrichment of intellectual and artistic circles with their professional collaborations and public interactions, also carrying a strong belief in the importance of building a community that shares and grows.

Chili Bowl Workspace Residency

The Chili Bowl Workspace Residency is an opportunity for potters who want to create their own work and participate in WSW’s Chili Bowl Fiesta, an annual fundraiser and our biggest community event of the year.

Each February, WSW sells over 1,000 bowls, mugs, and tumblers at the Chili Bowl Fiesta to support the operations of our ceramics studio. Pots are made throughout the year by resident artists, staff, interns, local artists, and our weekly clay study group. Every purchase of a pot comes with a helping of chili and cornbread donated by regional restaurants, plus we have raffles, music, and dancing! It’s a great event that allows our community to come together over handmade pottery and local food.

For the residency, we invite applications from artists in any stage of their careers and aim to provide artists with the time and space to live and work creatively. Awardees make 50 glazed or 100 bisqued bowls for the Chili Bowl Fiesta and also have time and space to create their own body of work.

Artists receive a thorough studio orientation and are expected to work independently, although studio staff is available to provide assistance. Deep technical assistance can be arranged for an additional fee. Artists are required to provide the expendable materials for their own project and can use WSW’s studio materials for the Chili Bowl pots. WSW maintains an inventory of supplies and materials that artists may purchase while in residence.

As of 2019, all workspace residencies are fully subsidized! This means that while artists are still responsible for their own travel, materials, meals, and other personal incidentals while in residence, WSW provides housing and studio space at no cost.
