International and Transdisciplinary Art Residency in a cultural heritage village in Sardinia, Italy.

31st May – 24 June 2019 – IVYnode is organizing the 2nd Art Residency Program with the theme “Su Bixinau”, the neighbourhood, in Nurri, a small village in the center of Sardinia.

Thanks to the precious collaboration with Fondazione Sciola, Local Municipality of Nurri, Proloco di Nurri and Archeogeo this 2nd Art Residency will include an Exhibition in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri, a Symposium during the Festival Sant’Arte in San Sperate, and a 2nd Exhibition in San Sperate curated by Fondazione Sciola.

About
The theme of the Art Residency is ‘Su Bixinau’, Sardinian for ‘the neighbourhood’.

The character of the Residency is Transdisciplinary and it is open to artists, researchers, writers or everyone who wish to be integrated in an unique place where is still possible to appreciate authentic aspects.

The participants will live in houses in the village of Nurri, in a calm environment rich in history and beautiful landscapes. During the program the artists will have the possibility to work and exhibit in the Monastery of Santa Rosa  in Nurri, dated XVII century, a perfect surrounding for side specific work and temporary installations. The participants will have the possibility to keep in touch with locals and artisans, who still preserve an ancient knowledge of old techniques that are risking to disappear. Thanks to the professionalism of Archeogeo, the artists can visit archaeological settle, exploring the territory and connecting with the nature, which can also be inspiring for landart projects.

If your art practice embraces community interaction or collaboration in some way, if you like cultural exchange programs and discovering local traditions, if you are interrested in temporary public art or site specific installation, sustainability or other models of art as social practice, this is the residency for you.

The artists participating in the Art Residency in Nurri will have a unique opportunity to be part of the Symposium “Su Bixinau” during the Festival Sant’Arte, guests for 3 days of the Fondazione Sciola, to exhibit their work first in the Monastery of Santa Rosa in Nurri and then in San Sperate, during a 2nd exhibition curated by Fondazione Sciola.
