Bortolomiol
“Female Land Artists Wanted”

Who can apply and how: • Female artists, who speak English or Italian fluently, without any restriction of age, nationality or artistic background (with preference to land art); • Send your candidacy, until the 30th of April 2019, exclusively by email to info@currentcorporate.com (with the subject “female land artist wanted”), accompanied by a portfolio and/or artistic CV, and a short text of 300 words representing the concept of a site-specific work to be developed (photographs and sketches of the site-specific potential intervention are welcome but not mandatory); • For information, contact the curators in Italian and English: info@currentcorporate.com / +39 375 5332009

Number of Participants
This Call for Artist will select one candidate for the “Female Land Artist Wanted” project. Bortolomiol, a luxury winery of historical origin, offers an artist-in-residence within its own production establishment, on the suggestive hills of Prosecco Superiore. Founded by Bartolomeo Bortolomiol in 1760, today the winery boasts a completely female management (the firm is led by 4 sisters: Maria Elena, Elvira, Luisa and Giuliana), and it is exactly the female contribution that we want to enhance with the “Female Land Artists Wanted” project created by Current, a start-up specialized in curating and developing unconventional artistic projects.

TIMES AND STRUCTURE OF THE ARTIST RESIDENCY

The residence will last about 20 days and will cover the period between the second half of May 2019 and the first two weeks of June 2019 (the precise start and end dates can be better defined with the chosen candidate, also on the basis of company calendar); • The task of the selected artist will be to produce, in this period, a land art intervention to enhance the Filandetta Park, in the light of the environmental stimuli of the context; • The selection will tend to favour Land Art artworks, but it will evaluate also other proposals belonging to other artistic media, if these proposals are capable of valuing the cultural, natural and feminine context in which the park is included.

deadline: April 29, 2019
