Biennale College Arte aims to complement and enrich its 2021/2022 exhibition with newly commissioned artworks by emerging artists, fully supported by La Biennale di Venezia.
12 artistic projects of young emerging artists under 30 from all over the world will be chosen out of an open call to further develop their projects in a series of workshops focused on training, research and experimentation. The workshop will run 30 September – 11 October 2021 and cover the conception, development, production of specific projects proposed in advance and selected by La Biennale di Venezia.
At the conclusion of the first workshop artists will present their projects with four selected to move on to a follow-up production workshop running 11-17 January 2022. At the end of this workshop, a grant of €25,000 will be allocated to each of the selected projects to produce their works for exhibition.
Artists selected for the workshops will be hosted (lodging and meals) for the duration of their stay in Venice in selected structures provided by La Biennale di Venezia. La Biennale di Venezia will also cover the participants’ travel expenses for both workshops in Venice (in economy class – up to 500 euros for European participant, and up to 1,000 euros for participant from the rest of the world, for each workshop).
Each artist may bring a collaborator during the workshops but all the costs for travel, room and board will be at his/her own expense.
The call is dedicated to young emerging artists, or duos, under the age of 30, from all over the world, with a record of inclusion in at least 1 group exhibition and 1 solo exhibition in recognised national and/or international exhibition spaces.
