open studio

The project presents a tool for dialogue between the foundation, local artists and the public, for the vision of paths and purposes of artistic research: not exhibitions, but a series of open dialogues such as the consultation of a portfolio or as a studio visit. The private places of the artists’ studios for a few months lend themselves to welcoming those who want to approach the world of contemporary art in Basilicata, through the direct knowledge of its protagonists, chosen among different generations of artists working in the regional area. The artists involved in the project open their workspace, telling how their artistic research was born and developed in a calendar of meetings at their studios, guided by a mediator and conceived as moments of dialogue between the artist and the public. The number of participants for each appointment is limited to a maximum of 10/12 visitors, with reservations required to the numbers of the foundation.
