Open Call: Artist apartment in Genoa

The project “Artisti nel Bosco” is yet a young initiative, in its third year of activity, which hosts Italian and international artists in biweekly residencies. In collaboration with the Baixi Association, it particularly supports the research of artists sensitive to the relationship with the natural environment by enhancing and promoting sculpture projects and installations that draw inspiration for reflection in the landscape and natural surroundings. The project is located in Baixi, a place of considerable naturalistic value located within the municipal perimeter of the city of Genoa. Its secluded position, while remaining in close contact with the urbanized area of the Pegli district, has preserved a suggestive natural environment closely related to the presence of the river, the adjacent wooded area and small nuclei of rural construction. This year the proposed theme is Metter: Constantly urged to inhabit the digital, we find a moment to focus on the essential meaning that matter has, and on the ambivalence generated by its being the starting point and arrival of infinite transformations. The Baixi association offers: accommodation in an independent house surrounded by greenery, meals, shared with the guests of the structure present at that time, workspace, and equipment for the realization of the project, a budget of up to 200 euros for the purchase of the necessary materials, organizational and technical support, accompaniment on arrival and departure, meetings, workshops, visits, support to facilitate exchange with local interlocutors or institutional counterparts in this area, an event at the end of the residency period open to the community.
