La Ville Ouverte | Mediterranean Landscapes
Deadline for application: September 11st 2016
“La Ville Ouverte” is a public art programme promoted by Arci Nazionale with Arci Lazio and Arci Liguria in the framework of BJCEM Network. In 2016 LVO would like to choose young artists among the BJCEM network in Tigullio (Genoa) and Tuscia (Viterbo) areas to start a long term project of residencies. The theme of the venture would inspire some reflections about identity, geography and the nature of public space in the age of migration, specifically in the in the euro – Mediterranean area.
Six artists coming from Italy, Belgium, Slovenia, Tunisia and Lebanon will reflect on public spaces and Mediterranean imaginary. The residency will take place in the Tigullio and Tuscia territories and includes 10 days of explorations, round-tables and meetings with the local communities, aiming to observe, reread, map out and re-enact the lands. Through a path of elaboration shared with curators, architects, urban planners and geographers; an idea of landform blending imaginary elements, identities and migrations together will spring.
