Eligibility:

Primo Piano LivinGallery is pleased to announce the new contemporary art exhibition entitled: "Worldview: The anthropology of eco-vision", curated by Dores Sacquegna. The exhibition will be set up at the Palmieri's Foundation, an ancient and Renaissance location in the heart of the old city of Lecce from 7th to 21th December 2020. Lecce is the capital of Baroque in Southern Italy, also known for the beauty of its landscape and for paper mache. Florence of the south is called for its numerous architectural and artistic riches and heritage.

The show  is a research art project that testifies with an experiential and artistic approach, the interference that human activity has produced on the natural cycles of the planet, proposing a reflection of the impact of our species on Earth, more than ever present in the moment of a global pandemic and which strongly questions the unstable balance between man and nature.

Between vision and perception, artists are asked to represent their point of view on the theme with their works, in line with an ecological vision of the world and reflecting on words such as: NATURE – NATURANS (Nature and artifice); SUSTAINABILITY – ADAPTATION (protection of animal and plant biodiversity, separate collection of waste, plastic, drifters and pollution, natural resources, eco-sustainable materials etc); CHANGE – COEXISTENCE (climate change, solidarity between individuals and the environment, optimistic visions, aesthetic balance of nature, etc.).

Covid-19 Pandemic allow us to reflect on the real power of art, to restore, uplift, inspire and offer to all a hope for the future. International artists are welcome to submit works before of September, 30, 2020.This is a great opportunity not to be missed!

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.

RESIDENCY 108 spring session

Share

Category:

Country:

Residency 108 invites emerging and established artists, writers and thinkers of all disciplines to immerse themselves in their creative practice. We particularly welcome those who work with nature, ecology and the installation of temporary outdoor land-art works. The residency is free apart from the cost of travel and material expenses which must be assumed by the individual. 

Two four week-long residencies are offered each year, one during the month of October and one in May. The program accommodates three artists at a time. Each resident is provided with a room, working facilities and a weekly stipend for food, participants are responsible for cooking their own meals. Each resident will be asked to present their work during the residency and weekly critiques are held as a group, sometimes with a visiting critic.

The program takes place on 108 acres of pastoral land which was used as a horse farm in the last century. The property features rolling hills, mowed paths, meadows, densely wooded forests, wetlands with a few ponds of varying size and a seasonal stream. In addition to these ecosystems a variety of native plant species host habitats for birds, reptiles and amphibians.

The residency is located in a remote area, there is no public transportation in the area, and we do not have a vehicle available for resident use apart from a bike. We do however provide weekly trips to shop for supplies and food. Our program is ideal for artists who wish to engage with the landscape and prefer isolation to interaction. If you require constant contact with “civilization” this may not be the program for you.
