Lo schermo dell’arte presents the thirteenth edition of the VISIO – European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research, residency and production programme dedicated to artists who use moving images in their artistic practice. 

The project, curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, will be held in Florence as part of the 17th Lo schermo dell’arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival (November 13 – 17, 2024). The 8 participants will be young European-based artists who work with moving images; they will be selected through an open call promoted in collaboration with some of Europe’s leading art academies and artist residencies.

The deadline to apply is Tuesday, July 9th, 2024. 

VISIO includes the VISIO Production Fund, a €35,000 production fund conceived in partnership with Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), and FRAC Bretagne (Rennes).

Thanks to the support of Human Company, a historic enterprise and reference point in Italy for open air hospitality, the VISIO Production Fund 2024 has been increased by €5,000 and, for the first time, reimbursement of participating artists’ travel expenses will be provided.

Eight artists will be selected and invited to Florence and will have the opportunity to develop their own original project in dialogue with international curators and producers. Sharing and exchange between participants and professionals are facilitated by an intensive programme of mentoring sessions, round tables and individual meetings. Funds will eventually be awarded to three artists who will work with Leonardo Bigazzi, and Lo schermo dell’arte team, to produce the works and premiere them at the Festival in 2025. An artist’s edition of each of the works produced will become part of the permanent collection of the project’s partner institutions, which are committed to promote and exhibit them in the following years.

The artists honoured in the previous editions are: Gerard Ortín CastellvíAndro EradzeTimoteus Anggawan KusnoSimon LiuValentin NoujaïmMaryam TafakoryYuyan Wang.
