[FOOD] Open Project consists in organizing a three-monthly meal in a domestic space.
HOW IT WORKS :::
[FOOD] Open Project will be held three-monthly and will host people having a relationship with the city in which the operational base will be located and having an idea they want to realize. Anyone will be able to present his project by writing to us.
Besides the presentation of the idea | project to be realized, the interaction with the space in which [FOOD] will take place is fundamental; the selected persons will have to organize an artistic intervention in the provided place.
In order to be eligible as Guest, it will be necessary to have an idea to fulfill and a free installation project entering into relationship with the place.
The group [FOOD] Open Project will select from time to time the among the received project proposals the more deserving ones and in harmony with the spirit of the project; the selection committee is composed by the persons in charge of the project for each base.
THE FUTURE :::
The intention is to create, after a certain period of experience in each operative base, a network of residences for young artists who will be hosted for one month inside the homes chosen as operative base, with the objective to carry out a site-specific project related to the host territory.
Who is carrying out a project and has participated during the previous year to [FOOD] Open Project, will be invited into one of the foreign bases for a residence. In a time of widespread economic crisis and difficulties in obtaining funds for clear ideas, [FOOD] Open Project proposes itself as a possible alternative: exchange of experiences, ideas, and projects through food, art, and the domestic space.
To share different forms of expression in the perspective of an opening and synergy between interpenetrating disciplines. Architects, artists, designers, graphic designers, musicians, writers, are invited to participate actively in the initiative.
The relationship with the territory is another strong point of the project; the entry into thedomestic and private space that welcoming what is coming from the outside reflects the philosophy of evolved cultural districts. A creative activity that brings social cohesion can do nothing but improve and develop the area where the project takes place.
The project is not just about a reflection on the local urban space, but it also involves the local gastronomic culture in situ and abroad.
Art is the mediator between all these components.
Giving to young persons working in the arts the opportunity to carry out their ideas consolidates the cultural territorial humus and increases the realization of artistic projects that enhance the cultural level both locally and internationally.
