XIX CSAV - Artists Research Laboratory

Open Call for Young Artists
Matt Mullican: Meaning of Things

CSAV – Artists Research Laboratory is a project where dialogue and exchange among artists of different generations and nationalities stands at the heart of a unique artistic and learning experience. The lab is open to fifteen young artists of all nationalities, selected among the applicants by a jury. The programme lasts twenty-four days during which the participants attend a daily workshop activity and theoretical seminars run by the invited artist, the director, the curators and guest lecturers, as well as conferences held by artists, critics and experts of other disciplines.

The 19th edition of CSAV, titled Meaning of Things, will be held between the 5th and the 29th of July 2013 and run by American artist Matt Mullican.

During the laboratory, Mullican will discuss of the emotional interpretation of pictures and signs, that faculty of a picture to grab our consciousness and create an experience. This ongoing investigation of the relationship between perception and reality, between the ability to see something and the ability to represent it, will be examined along with other key themes of Mullican’s practice like the nature of the theatrical experience, its capacity to transform extreme emotional states, and the trancelike phenomenon that is the core of Mullican’s performances.

The laboratory is free of charge. Accommodation expenses in Como are to be covered by the participants. To apply, it is necessary fill in the form available online on the
application form page of the website and upload a portfolio of work in pdf format.
The application and all required materials must be sent by the 5th of April 2013.
The shortlist of the participant will be published online at the end of May.
