CALL FOR ARTISTS > VISIO
Deadline: September 28th, 2017
When: November 14-19, 2017
Where: Florence, Italy
VISIO consists of an exhibition and a series of seminars and meetings dedicated to expanding the vision and themes of artists, who use moving images in their artistic practice. By promoting encounters and international mobility, VISIO has favoured the development of a wide network of institutions, artists and professionals working with moving images.
The VISIO Programme, curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, will be held in Florence, within the context of the 10th Edition of Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival (15th – 19th November 2017). The participants will be 12 young European artists, who work with moving images; they will be selected with an open call, in collaboration with some of the most important European Art Academies, Schools and Artist Residencies.
On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival will organize a new exhibition project to celebrate its engagement in promoting, producing and exhibiting the works from a new generation of visual artists. Titled Directing The Real: Artists’ films and video in the 2010s (14th Nov – 10th Dec, 2017), the exhibition will present one video work for each of the 12 selected artists along with a selection of works from VISIO’s previous participants and nominees of Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival Prize. The exhibition will take place at Palazzo Medici Riccardi and in other locations in Florence and is produced and organized by Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival in collaboration with FST- Mediateca Regionale Toscana.
Confirmed for the third edition is the VISIO Young Talent Acquisition Prize that will be assigned to one of the participating artists and consists in the acquisition of one of his/her video works by the Seven Gravity Collection, a private Italian collection that focuses on video works by contemporary artists.
As a result of the research and debate generated by the Programme over the past five years, an extensive publication will be published by Mousse Publishing. The book will feature contributions by leading international curators, artists and critics and a section dedicated to all the artists that have participated in the programme.
