We are pleased to announce that on Tuesday December 14th, at 5.00 p.m. ACCEA Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art in Yerevan, will host a one- day-event Italian Container: the emerging Italian video art comes to Yerevan project. The event is curated by Carolina Lio, the currently curator-in-residence at ACOSS Cultural NGO in Yerevan, and supported by European Cultural Foundation of Amsterdam and the Open Society Institute of the Soros Foundation in New York through “Step Beyond” travel grant.
A sequence of fourteen videos will be screened during the evening. The works have been realized by emerging and mid-carreer Italian artists and have been selected by the curator in collaboration with Visual Container (www.visualcontainer.org), a Milan based organization for the promotion and dissemination of Italian video art and new media.
All selected videos are produced in the last years and have already been admitted in International Video Festivals. Invited artists are chosen as a representative group of emerging young figures already known and well-adjusted in the Italian contemporary art scene. The videos are of varying types, ranging from animation to performance, in order to give as complete view as possible of the today’s video art in Italy.
The initiative is part of the “Step Beyond” program, aimed to stimulate transnational collaborations and the mobility of artists and cultural actors. In particular it is focused on cultural exchanges between European countries and their neighbours. Fallowing this the one-day-event in ACCEA/NPAK, screening of works of Armenian video artists will take place in Italy in January 2011, organized in “Visual Container” exhibition space in Milan.
