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!

The main focus, here, is centred on pictures showing the decadence of industrial buildings as well as renewed factories, currently fulfilling a different function (museum, art gallery, shop...).

Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies

Share

Category:

Country:

A Studio in the Woods is now accepting applications for Rising: Climate in Crisis Residencies. The call is open to artists of all disciplines who have demonstrated an established dialogue with environmental and culturally related issues and a commitment to seeking and plumbing new depths. Residencies are 6 weeks, will take place between September 2020 and May 2021, and include a $2500 stipend and $2000 materials budget.

Rising Residencies invite artists to examine the severity of the climate crisis and be agents of change to guide our collective understanding, response, and vision as we shape our shared future. New Orleans and the inhabitants of our region are frequently invoked as some of the most vulnerable to the effects of environmental degradation. While sea levels, temperatures and emotions are rising, our highly manipulated landscape can be seen as a microcosm of the global environment, manifesting both the reckoning and hope which are required in the ways humans interact with shifting urban and natural ecosystems. As the climate crisis moves beyond coastal communities and permeates the collective understanding of the future, the challenges faced by Southern Louisiana resonate exponentially. We look to artists to ignite our imaginations, illuminate our challenges, and offer new ways to examine the world.

Rising Residencies will provide artists with time, space, scholarship and staff support to foster critical thinking and creation of new works. We ask artists to describe in detail how the region will affect their work, to propose a public component to their residency and to suggest ways in which they will engage with the local community.

Proposals are due by April 13th and residencies will be awarded by June 12th, 2020.

The Land is a Library

Share

Country:

Eligibility:

The land and its animal inhabitants have always been integral to the creation of books: parchment produced from the skin of calves, tree pulp for paper, vegetable charcoal into ink... If one were to make books localized materially and conceptually around Anima Casa, what might that look like? How can a kiln, burning donkey shit, produce a book? Are the black embers floating through the sunset from nearby burning sugar kane just a series of punctuation marks waiting to find their pages? Are the fish sucking up algae in the swimming pool acting as

editors of some acquatome? How does environment allow us to inhabit the space between languages? What is learned from skinning rabbits? What space is made by pulling air, sand, and water into the pages of a book? What does it mean to create books that blur and bridge geographies; books that promise an undoing of languages; books that offer an experience? These and many other questions will shape the residency until we prove The Land is a Library.
