ARTS RESEARCH LAB

 

Art Research Lab is a one-month residency program for a group of international artists, which will take place in the city of Ferrara, Italy, from the 2nd of September to the 4th of October 2017. The programme is organized by the curators Angelica Bollettinari and Olivia Berkowicz in collaboration with Margherita Elliot, Catalina Golban and Valeria Bevilacqua. During Art Research Lab, the participants will benefit from free accommodation and studio space, as well as from a program of discussions, presentations and a reading group, and they will participate in a final exhibition from the 27th of September to the 4th of October hosted by Galleria del Carbone and Gate/Porta project space.

 

Art Research Lab originates from reflections on the role of artists and curators in today’s society, functioning within an art system that reproduces itself through increasing quantities of low-paid or unpaid work, and which demands constant flexibility and is pervaded by an increasing sense of precarity. Within this context, what does it means to curate an artistic project and on how to do so, precisely, “with care”?

Art Research Lab is a one-month residency program for a group of international artists, which will take place in the city of Ferrara, Italy, from the 2nd of September to the 4th of October 2017. The programme is organized by the curators Angelica Bollettinari and Olivia Berkowicz in collaboration with Margherita Elliot, Catalina Golban and Valeria Bevilacqua.  

Our aim is to reflect on the conditions of creative research and work, which requires high emotional involvement and continuous attention and care towards the project and the people and communities involved in it. Throughout the residency, we will think together through themes such as intimacy, work, slowness, vulnerability, anxiety, and on the importance of processes of collaboration and modalities of working together to provide an alternative to the exhaustion, anxiety and fragmentation that we experience today under networked capitalism.

Participants:  Henry Bradley, Marianna Feher, Karolina Mikeskova, Bridie Gane, Athene Greig, Sandi Hudson-Francis, George Jepson, Lucie Kordacova, Tom Savery, Joe Campbell.
