Arp-Art Residency Project 2015/17
Thanks to the support of MAE, the project of artistic residences between Rome and Cape Town in South Africa starts again.
This is the fourth two-year period of activity, for the cultural exchange program, dedicated to emerging talents. For the next two years Centro Luigi Di Sarro and Gallery Everard Reed – with funding from the Italian Foreign Ministry and the participation of the diplomatic missions of the two countries – are involved in a new and more comprehensive proposal that will bring a young South African artist in Rome and an Italian artist in Cape Town for a residence of one month and a solo exhibition. In Cape Town, then, at the end of the biennium, it will be held an event supported by the Italian Consulate in Cape Town that will engage the Community Center Samora Machel and the young artists from the informal scene. During these days Centro Luigi Di Sarro, with local partners and Slowdesign Rainbowmediagroup, are working for the organization of activities and the selection of participants, all under 35.
