dolomiti contemporanee and the Vajont area are in arcipelago italia, the Italian Pavillion of the 16th venice’s biennale of architecture.
“Arcipelago Italia. Projects for the future of the country’s interior territories” is the title of the project by curator Mario Cucinella for the Italia Pavillion at the 16th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, promoted by Direzione Generale Arte e Architettura contemporanee e Periferie Urbane, MiBACT.
through arcipelago italia, cucinella has carried out an explorative journey, a reconnaissance of italy‘s inner areas, placing particular focus on a series of sites and projects, as well as architecture and cultural socialization procedures that involve the territory’s participation, and that are always equipped with a vision in regards to the determination of the future of the human landscapes, one that presents itself through good practices, actions based on networking strategies, open regenerative process-oriented approaches, and re-innovative ideas which may prove themselves to be capable of responsibly tackling the theme of enhancement and reclaiming of the environmental, landscape-related, cultural and social heritage.
the sites aren’t enough in and of themselves, and there is no future for the heritage if the people don’t operate towards that goal: the future is the product of present actions.
the call for the italian pavillion was answered by more than 500 projecs, 67 of which have eventually been selected by the curator, and find now a home at the tese delle vergini at the arsenale.
among them is dolomiti contemporanee, inside the itinerary dedicated to the eastern alps.
a great photograph of vajont’s mt. toc (by isabella sassi farìas), sighted from the nuovo spazio di casso, welcomes visitors at the entrance of the pavillion.
the exhibit will remain open until november 25th 2018.
On Saturday May the 2nd, Dolomiti Contemporanee will host a day dedicated to culture and contemporary art. A talk, open to the public, is going to take place at the Nuovo Spazio di Casso, from 2 to 6 PM.
The first phase of the twocalls contest is coming to its end. It only will be possible to send projects for a call for a wall and a call for a line until April the 30th.
Twocalls is a contest of ideas that, through artistic projects, increases the amount of active and projective reflection on the critical Vajont area.
Neonlauro is one of Dolomiti Contemporanee’s partner, and takes an active role in the International Public-Art Contest Two Calls for Vajont.
In particular, the collaboration with Neonlauro, a firm specialized in neon technology, and very active in the artistic sphere, will allow for the realization of the winning piece of A Call For A Wall, i.e.
