Le CALL FOR ARTIST Signals e Signals_design ideas

Call for Artist!
Artistic development project for “Spazio Kor”, a multidisciplinary theater.

CRAFT Association, in collaboration with the Municipality of Asti and Teatro degli Acerbi, thanks to the support of the Compagnia di San Paolo and with the support of GAI –  The Association for the Young Italian Artists, wants to award a residence opportunity for artists who are working with contemporary languages.

We opened the “call for artist” Signals and Signals_design ideas, addressed to individual artists, groups, collectives or designer, and we would invite artists from all over Europe to re-read and transform the former San Giuseppe Church, today “Spazio Kor”, through digital arts, multimedia and interactive projects. The selected project will be invited to an artist residency for the realization of the project to be inaugurated in the month of June 2017.

All proposed projects will be evaluated by a commission coordinated by CRAFT, the organization managing Spazio Kor.

Signals – a new identity for an old building, will be divided into two sections and two different calls: the first, Signals, covers the external area of the church, to highlight what does not appear immediately from the theatre itself; the second, dedicated to the foyer, to take art inside the theatre in order to promote the meeting between the heritage of a baroque church and contemporary art in its various forms, as a future strategies.

Signals invites its participants to explore the link between the theatre and the city: looking attractive squares, buildings and yards, not only as physical locations. Reflecting on the imaginary, exploring that part of the city that doesn’t appears visible to the eye. Intervening on the physical space through art and multimedia, making it an active element, capable of telling urban, but also social and creative stories.
