Primo Piano LivinGallery is pleased to announce the new contemporary art project and urban art residency titled: “Worldview: The anthropology of eco-vision”, curated by Dores Sacquegna.

Preview

The urban art residency titled “Worldview: The Anthropology of Eco-Vision ”  represents an educational path centered between urban and non-urban, between art and the environment, between work and exhibition space. This experiment connects people who do not know each other and who do not know the city, to have a plural and multidisciplinary point of view in a new context for them, through a 9-day artistic residency, in which the resident artists will live a unique and fascinating experience. An urban workshop, centered in the old city and in the suburb, in order to obtain important food for thought as well as visual / video / photographic materials that can be reworked in a final installation / work with an group exhibition at the Palmieri’s Foundation in Lecce.

The project in short

In the contemporary world, the concept of the city itself is continually questioned enough to say that there are different forms of urban life. The city borders are faded, the borders are areas of opacity, always mobile and indefinite.  But how is this boundary identified? The project focuses on the concept of “boundaries” between man and the city, between the city and nature. It analyzes the idea of human and urban boundaries: that is, how people live them or how they are modified in contemporary society. Thus, you will have a narration of the landscape, a way of describing the city through itself.

The strength of this art project lies in the choice of some specific urban places accessible by foot or by city buses. Some of them are a real open-air museum rich in street arts murals and art public works. Each resident will have to map as a border or a working area, describing their idea of ​​”border” and reflecting on the words “man and environment”, “art and nature”, “city and border “. In this sense, art becomes a real research tool, urban and human redevelopment.The residency project allows artists to “experiment” themselves in an unknown place and make new acquaintances. Among the works created, those with the greatest visual impact will be chosen by Art Curator  for the group exhibition “Worldview: anthropology of eco-vision” in Lecce.

Eligibility and works
The project is open to worldwide artists operating in all media and on mainly with Urban Design, Short video /films, Photography, Installations, Collage, Mixed Media, Creative Writing, Drawing and more.

The project was deliberately programmed in the period of December, where the religious rituals of the city of Lecce, already known for their exciting and spiritual character, take place in parallel with the folkloric ones now rooted in popular memory. These elements of tradition are accompanied by the natural passage of the winter season which in any case is very mild compared to other regions of Northern Italy.

Lecce, Capital of Baroque

The city of Lecce is a crossroads of cultures and sedimentations from prehistoric times to today, has seen its splendor in its wonderful Roman, Messapian, Medieval, Renaissance, Liberty, Arab, Spanish and Jewish’s architecture present in the city and small villages around it.  Lecce is mainly a Baroque city, which explodes with bright decorations that enrich palaces, churches and private homes with the intense colors of its stone: a soft and compact limestone, with warm and golden colors that lends itself very well to working with the stonemason. Baroque art spread to Lecce in the Seventeenth Century, during the Spanish domination, replacing classical art and creating a style that left room for fantasy and imagination. Lecce it is hospitable and tidy town, with a great gastronomy and an exceptional landscape and sea between Ionian and Adriatic coasts in which Lecce overlooks. An open-air museum among the most fascinating in Italy, the pearl of Puglia’s region. Scenic and welcoming, Lecce attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world. You're welcome!

SILENT CITIES Call for Exhibition

Accepted media: Photography, Digital Graphic, Digital Visual Design

Group Exhibition in Rome city. September 2020

The spaces that will characterize the next exhibition will be those of urban contexts, where silence will become a reason for an experience, in which the absence of movement and visual effects that refer to acoustic production, recreates a condition of metaphysical standstill, of reflection on the environments of the present in dialogue with the past, on social spaces, on interactions, on man's behavior in relation to the environment in which he lives and on the traces of his existence.

Urban Challenges - Take part in a photography exhibition in Berlin

City:

Eligibility:

As the urban population is growing steadily, cities are increasingly facing new important challenges - let them be social, environmental or economical. Our urban experience keeps on transforming and new questions arise every day. How to share the space? How should we build? Is there enough space for sports, health and culture? Where do people work? What is the role of the public institutions? Which places are left for the communities? How to integrate the digital world and improve mobility? Which are the alternatives to the cars? How can cities become a responsible actor when climate change is concerned? Which sustainable options do we have? How to create connections? If the issues raised are numerous, they may as well open up new perspectives to enhance the quality of life of citizens. Either documenting the reality or imagining future transformations, we would like to discover the work of photographers embracing this topic.

The selected artists will take part in a collective exhibition at the gallery of B-Part in Berlin in February 2020.

Deadline: January 5, 2020
