Eligibility:

Applications are now open for our online exhibition “Mind Maze”.

Labyrinths and mazes represent an age-old tension between fate and free will. The place with obvious entry and mysterious progression where you’re forced to lose yourself only to find yourself once again. We are looking for artworks themed around labyrinths, inner emotions, and faith.  Artworks that are inspired by labyrinths and mazes in a literal or abstract way. From the pattern of movement and complex structures to metaphors used to refer to a difficult, or confusing situation, from graphic, linear figures to investigation of perception and its possibilities, an insight in one’s own “mind maze”.

"Art inspires...Art" 2022

Eligibility:

Art inspires...Art, 2022

The anguished face in the painting The Scream is one of the most iconic images in art and one of the most important works of art in the history of painting.. The painting was created in 1893 by Norwegian artist Edvard Munch and depicts the universal anxiety of modern humanity. "I could not get rid of my illness, because I owe a large part of my art to it", the great painter once declared, who, apart from being talented, was a deeply depressed and tormented man, from the futility of death and the effects of illness, mental and physical.

While he was influenced by the Post-Impressionists, he did not feel that the term Impressionist suited him. He has been characterized by many as the forerunner of the artistic current of expressionism. Munch painted a symbolic reality, depicting states of mind and subconscious. Situations where there is strong emotion, a tense and highly charged atmosphere.

The work was first completed in 1893 but the artist had made many more versions of it. Munch intended his painting to symbolize the concept of panic of the unknown and the anxiety of the human condition, regardless of gender and origin.

He later described his inspiration for the image:

I was walking along the road with two friends – the sun was setting – suddenly the sky turned blood red – I paused, feeling exhausted, and leaned on the fence – there was blood and tongues of fire above the blue-black fjord and the city – my friends walked on, and I stood there trembling with anxiety – and I sensed an infinite scream passing through nature.

After Botticelli's "Spring" as a source of inspiration and guided by the same belief, that "Art inspires art", Pocket Star Gallery and Culture365 once again invite artists to present, through their own works, feelings, reflections and impressions that they are inspired by the painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch. Works that, despite having a common source of inspiration, are not imitations. Works that in turn will trigger the creation of new masterpieces, contributing to the eternal cycle of art creation...

OPEN CALL: VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

Lo Schermo dell’Arte presents the eleventh edition of VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research, residency and production programme dedicated to artists who use moving images in their artistic practice.

The project, curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, will be held in Florence in conjunction with the 15th Lo Schermo dell’Arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival (November 15 – 20, 2022). The 8 participants will be young European artists who work with moving images; they will be selected through an open call organised in collaboration with some of Europe’s leading art academies, schools and artist residencies. The deadline to apply is Friday, September 9, 2022.

After 10 years VISIO develops further by introducing the VISIO Production Fund, a €40,000 production fund conceived in partnership with Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes) and Seven Gravity Collection.

Eight artists will be selected and invited to Florence and will have the opportunity to develop their own original project in dialogue with international curators and producers. Sharing and exchange between participants and professionals are facilitated by an intensive programme of mentoring sessions, round tables and individual meetings. Funds will eventually be awarded to four winning artists who will work with Leonardo Bigazzi, and the Schermo dell’Arte team, to produce the works and premiere them at the Festival in 2023. An artist’s edition of each of the works produced will become part of the permanent collection of the project’s partner institutions, which are committed to promote and exhibit them in the following years.

The beginning of this new course will also be accompanied by the release of a publication dedicated to the first ten years of VISIO. The book traces the history of the project and promotes the research of the 128 artists who took part in the programme and the exhibitions organised between 2012 and 2021. The book aims to investigate some of the fundamental themes animating the international debate in the field of moving images today through texts commissioned for the occasion and conversations with artists, curators, researchers, collectors and producers involved in the project over the years.

Prize Summary: 
40000 euros
Prizes Details: 

Artists are invited to submit a project for an original video work still in the early stages of development. There are no restrictions on the duration and/or format of the proposed work (single-channel, multi-channel installations, VR, augmented reality, etc.). Co-productions with museums, festivals, production companies or other international institutions are allowed.

Through the open call Leonardo Bigazzi will select 8 artists who will be invited to Florence from 15 – 20 November 2022 to develop their projects with the VISIO team. After the week-long residency the participants will have until 5 December 2022 to rework their proposals based on the feedback received during the meetings.

The 4 winning projects will receive 10,000 euros each and will be selected by 16 December 2022 by Leonardo Bigazzi in dialogue with the institutional partners who will co-produce the works: Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes) and Seven Gravity Collection. An artist’s edition of the work produced will become part of the permanent collection of the co-producing institution.

The curator and the team of Lo schermo dell’arte will work closely with the winning artists, offering them all the necessary production support until the work is completed and delivered with English subtitles by October 1, 2023.

The winning works will be premiered at Lo schermo dell’arte in 2023.
