Call to Apply: Opening of 2018 Residency Season - Murano - Contemporary Art & Glass

Residency programm 2018.

MURANO ISLAND
The experiences we offer are closely related to the density and the identity of the places that house them. In this sense, the island of Murano is representative of a territory - the lagoon of Venice – full of incomparable features not found in any other place in the world. All that is associated with Venice also belongs to Murano: the absence of roads and cars are replaced by boats, docks and canals. Here, however, the slow rhythm of an island without traffic is contrasted by the spirit of the glass production. The constant humming of the furnaces and the masters taming the fire are key elements of this reality.
Our goal in proposing a residence on the island of Murano is twofold. In one way, we want to make sure that the artists from Italy and abroad can experience something out of the ordinary by capturing the rhythms and lifestyle of Murano. On the other hand, the artists can breathe a new energy into the island, review the results and thus have a new understanding and depth. The extraordinary experiences that they bring are motivations for evolution and transformation in our production capacity. We reflected a lot about what it meant to create a place conducive to the creative process. Through our activities, dialogues with artists, and the observation of their work we are able to specify guidelines that can reveal possible evolutions.
During the residency the artist has the possibility to meet other venetian artists and curatores, in order to take part in other projects.
Murano is accessible by vaporetto and is 10-15 minutes from Venice.
