RAVE WORKSHOP
http://www.raveresidency.com

The RAVE Workshop is part of the first edition of the RAVE East Village Artist Residency, a residency program for artists hosted in a traditional old farm-house in the heart of the Friuli countryside, the Pasolini north east of Italy. The workshop, produced with the support and cooperation of the City of Trivignano Udinese, will last three days and will be open to young artists living in Europe. The initiative is sponsored by: project leader Associazione Culturale LʼOfficina, Comitato Trieste Contemporanea-Dialoghi con l'Arte dell'Europa Centro Orientale, Associazione Culturale Hope, Associazione Culturale Etrarte, Altevie Technologies. The objective of the workshop is to give young people the opportunity to interact with great international artists, as well as a chance to exchange ideas and experiences with other young people from different backgrounds and training. The RAVE East Village Artist Residency program, created by Isabella Pers and Tiziana Pers, will invite a number of prominent artists to live and work in a farmhouse located in rural Trivignano Udinese. The artist in residence for the RAVE Workshop 2011 is ADRIAN PACI. He will hold a workshop on the 10th, 11th and12th of June, 2011. He will freely decide the nature of the workshop, the methods and approaches. A committee of experts will select 12 Europen artists from those who have applied for the program. 6 places will be reserved for artists from Friuli Venezia Giulia. Participation in the workshop is free and hospitality costs will be covered by the organization. The food will be vegetarian and accommodation is provided for participants coming from outside the region. Travel expenses must be covered by individual participants. At the end of the workshop participants will be invited to present a project based on their experiences during the event. For organisational reasons all materials that the 12 artists wish to submit must be received by August 20, 2011. The material received will be exhibited at the event “Immaginare il tempo” (Imagining time) which will be held in the historic village of Clauiano on the 24/25th September 2011. We ask that the material remain available to the organization for a period of one year for future initiatives. The exhibition will be accompanied by the publication of a catalogue. SELECTION COMMITTEE Adam Budak - Daniele Capra - Giuliana Carbi - Isabella Pers - Antonio Riello - Julia Trolp REGISTRATION Registration is free and open to all young visual artists over the age of 18, residing in Europe. A good knowledge of English is required to participate in the workshop. The registration form can be downloaded online on www.raveresidency.com and must be filled out and sent no later than April 30, 2011, enclosing the required documents. The selected participants will be contacted by May 6, 2011. HOW TO PARTICIPATE Applicants should submit an entry form together with the material specified below. Required Documentation: Completed application form, available online on www.raveresidency.com - A portfolio of work submitted as a PDF file (max 10 pages/2MB) containing images of the works with their data (title, year, technique, dimension). The applicant can add an artistic statement and a description of the works (maximum of 2.000 characters, in Italian or English) - A link of a video or a extract from video (max 3”) - Curriculum Vitae containing: solo shows last 4 years / group shows last 4 years / residencies and awards / grants and other scholarship Only documentation presented in accordance with these requirements will be considered. All documentation must be sent no later than April 30, 2011 WORKSHOP THEME The changing of natural and urban spaces is directly related to culture and social habits. How is it still possible to experience this of as a complete perception of the present, of space and of the lives which are lived there? And how can art address a transient reality and find a relationship with reality which is different from the evermore over-excited conventional images we give it? Animals live in the place where the workshop will be held. These have been saved from the food industry through artistic actions, removed from consumerist mechanisms to be welcomed and cared for in a more natural context. In this sense, the perspective which underlies the residency is also permeated by the personal and professional relationship that ties the artists Isabella and Tiziana Pers to the place where it is held. The farmhouse itself is located in a small village in Friuli, in a rural environment, far from large urban centres. As such the artists will be able to interact with the natural physicality of an environment where one can still perceive the origins and stratifications. Furthermore, after the removal of the borders in the EU enlargement process, Friuli Venezia Giulia, in the extreme eastern Italy, has acquired a new dimension that has led to the area becoming a conduit linking the east and west. This is a channel that has absorbed many influences throughout its history. The theme is intended as a starting point and the artists will be free to investigate the different aspects and interpretations of it in the manner they feel is most appropriate. The purpose of the workshop is to ensure that all participants have the opportunity to experience a different modus vivendi in order to create new ideas and reflections. The topics of the workshop relate to the theme of Immaginare il Tempo: in this event, that will take place during the autumn equinox, they will be explored through a series of debates and talks.

Grants and funding for Beat Hauser - Industrial archaeology
http://www.sperrzone.net/web/sperrzone/Sperrzone.nsf/fsStartEN?OpenFra...

Dear Sir/Madam, I am a freelance photographer of architecture, specialising in abandoned buildings and industrial archaeology, based in Rheinfelden, Switzerland. I am writing to enquire as to whether you are interested in representing me for architectural themes. Beat Hauser on Der Spiegel, which is a leading German magazine: http://einestages.spiegel.de/static/profile/47449/beat_hauser.html The English version of my website is http://www.sperrzone.net/web/sperrzone/Sperrzone.nsf/fsStartEN?OpenFrameset Yours sincerely, Additional information: About Beat Hauser, SPERRZONE Beat Hauser is interested in industrial archaeology and history of Europe. His special area is the brewing industry of Switzerland and the former German Democratic Republic. Since 2003 he is taking pictures of industrial areas and abandoned places within all Europe. On his web site SPERRZONE (www.sperrzone.net) he does not only present his own pictures, but also some information about the related factories and places as well as historical photo post cards, old letter heads, labels, advertisings to document the history of the factories. Most pictures are taken in abandoned factories. Abandoned places and industrial ruins are generally seen as ;spots of dirt; and people feel uncomfortable around them. Often such places have a very long and interesting history, which seems almost forgotten today. Instead of the activity of former days there is nothing but silence and emptiness. Instead of windows, black holes are staring out of the walls. But very often the architecture of elapsed eras is attractive and astonishing. In combination with the emptiness and beginning decay, such places often spread the impression of a dream world. Decay and nature give new structures to strictly geometric forms and lines, e.g. in production halls. Moisture, moss and rust give new colors to gray halls. Beat Hauser tries to capture these impressions with his photographs. Aesthetics of decay is illustrated in its huge variety from huge industrial plants to small details.

'Scent of Scagliola' Michael Hampton / Peter Suchin
http://www.tankgallery.weebly.com

Tank Scent of Scagliola Michael Hampton / Peter Suchin September 10 - October 2, 2010 Private View: Thursday, September 9, 6 – 9pm This exhibition strategically offsets the works of two artists who are also practicing critics, writers whose visual work may also be read as a form of interrogative address, albeit of a kind that is inherent within artistic practice itself. Michael Hampton’s drawings and constructions take as their point of departure the artistic and philosophical conventions of western picture-making, notably the issues of representation, support, structure, flatness and frame. He literally pulls apart these received but arguably outworn vehicles of expression so as to question and reinscribe the limits of their plausible operation. As Hampton himself remarks, in engaging with his work “the viewer’s stray focus is deliberately forced to confront the mute, intrinsic strangeness of the object”, to critically consider the ideological platitudes – and infringements – that comprise the artistic canon and its recurring conceits. Peter Suchin, in employing and reworking a substantial range of established artistic codes, similarly addresses several prevalent tropes of recent and contemporary art. His paintings, as the writers David Hopkins and Sally O’Reilly have observed, are tightly composed yet border on chaos and dissolution, appearing to fall apart and re-form themselves like optical illusions or picture-puzzles designed to seduce – or to disorientate – the spectator. These complicated, layered, recursive paintings also provoke a wilful ambiguity with respect to their status as pictorial representation or unsullied abstraction, keeping both ends of the spectrum constantly in play. The term Scagliola refers to a cheap but popular substitute for marble, first produced in Italy in the seventeenth century. Its various connotations include displacement or exclusion, cultural or economic depletion, dissembling and sleight of hand. Tank The Ladywell Tavern, 80 Ladywell Road, London, SE12 7HS.
