Gorvy Lecture Theatre Londra, mercoledì 23 maggio “Call for Artists” Aristic Residencies

Ingresso libero. Prenotare qui.
In recent years international residencies have proliferated. Both public institutions and private philantropists have recognised the variety of crosspolinations that such platforms can create. Residencies might involve spending time in a different setting than the usual one. Artists have been lodging on islands, ships, modernist buildings and more. These physical displacements create a unique suspended time for artists to think, read, explore, discuss, produce, process and talk about art. Together with the founders of some international artistic residencies; we will challenge the say “none is prophet in his country” –and think about the ways these platforms might unlock cultural exchanges. Join us to discuss artistic residencies’ different formats, their impact and outlines with some of the directors of foundations and residencies programmes: Sarah Elson from Launch Pad an itinerary residency programme; Annie Ratti from the Ratti Foundation in Como, Italy and Frances Reynolds from the Inclusartiz Insitute in Rio de Janiero, Brazil. The evening will be introduced and moderated by Ilaria Puri Purini, Curator of Programmes at the Contemporary Art Society.

The event takes place at Gorvy Lecture Theatre - Dyson Building - 1 Hester Road - London SW11 4AN and is organised in collaboration with the School of Arts and Humanities of the Royal College of Art. 

Sarah Elson developed Launch Pad out of a desire to support emerging artists directly, develop her collection, commission new work, and participate in the creative process. Elson is an art historian and collector with professional expertise as an advisor to private and corporate collections. Since 2008, she has devoted herself to the cultivation of not-for-profit arts organisations that she supports. A Trustee of the Contemporary Art Society and the Bow Arts Trust, Sarah’s philanthropic activity includes writing and curating as well as fundraising and strategic development. She established an International Artist Residency at Princeton University where she serves on the Advisory Council of the museum, and a fellowship for UK-based craft artists at Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina, where she served on the board.

Annie Ratti is an artist based in London. In 1995 she founded the Advanced Course in Visual Arts, now Artists Research Laboratory, at Fondazione Antonio Ratti (Como, Italy), which she has directed since then. The CSAV – Artists Research Laboratory is an experimental platform designed to provoke formal and informal discussions and exchanges among artists of different generations and nationalities. Annie Ratti has exhibited widely, in Italy and overseas, and her works are included in public institutions and collections, such as Drinking Fountain (2009) and Tête à tête (1999) permanently displayed at Whitechapel Gallery, London.
