Lo schermo dell’arte presents the ninth edition of VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research and residency project dedicated to artists who use moving images in their artistic practice.
VISIO consists of an exhibition and a series of seminars, round tables and meetings. By encouraging international dialogue and mobility, VISIO has fostered the development of a wide network of institutions, artists and professionals who work with moving images, creating a significant archive that maps a new generation of artists based in Europe. Over 800 visual artists have applied to participate in the first seven editions of the Programme.
The project, curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, will be held in Florence in conjunction with the 13th Lo schermo dell’arte Film Festival (9 – 14 November 2020). The exhibition of works by the participants, titled Resisting the Trouble – Moving Images in Times of Crisis, is produced with NAM – Not A Museum, the contemporary art programme by Manifattura Tabacchi, and will be held from 9 November to 8 December.
