Announcement aimed at the construction of an Artist Residence as part of the MigrArt In Residence Project in Lignano Sabbiadoro (UD), dal 2 al 7 October 2023
MigrArt In Residence is the fourth program of Contemporary Art Residency organized by the Menti Libere Association with the support of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and in collaboration with the Municipality of Lignano and other bodies and associations of the regional territory and neighboring Slovenia. The association, active for ten years in the field of social promotion through participatory art, aims to carry out creative projects that deseasonalize the seaside resort.
The residence was created to culturally stimulate and raise awareness of a seaside community that, outside the crowded summer season, lives under the banner of a bare creative and aggregative environment.
The goal of the short residency that will take place from 2 al 7 October is to stimulate a reflection on the dichotomous reality of Lignano but also to favor the equally difficult encounter between young emerging Italian and Slovenian artists , established artists on the national scene and the territory They will in fact be Michele Bazzana, Ryts Monet and Kristian Sturi, the three Friulian artists, now consolidated at national level, called to set up the collective exhibition with their works and to play the role of tutor for the six emerging artists under 30 selected by the organization.
Under the watchful eye of the curator Eva Comuzzi, the three main artists will in fact accompany the young artists for the week of the residency in setting up the collective within the various exhibition centers but also in the elaboration of a reflection on the singular context in which they find themselves working., that of a seaside resort in transit from summer lights to winter hibernation.
During the days of residence foreseen in Lignano from 2 al 7 of October, the organization will take care of carrying out short guided tours in some emblematic spaces of the seaside resort in order to offer artists a wider landscape and socio-cultural overview.
The final exhibition will, as usual, be structured around a path including various spaces, institutional ones but also more informal ones with great symbolic value such as some premises that remain vacant in the extra-seasonal months.
Il 7 in fact, October will be the time for the inauguration in the presence of the curator and the artists. In March 2024 the summary catalog of all three past post-CoVid editions will also be published.
