Bjcem and the City of Ancona announce the launch of Mediterranea16 Young Artists Biennial, an international multidisciplinary event, taking place in Ancona, Italy, from June 6th to July 7th 2013, bringing together more the 250 artists.
Started in 1985, the Biennial takes place every two years in a different city in the Mediterranean area focusing on young artists and creators. Bjcem is an international network with more than 70 members and partners from Europe, Middle East and Africa which, thanks to their support, make the event possible ensuring the participation of artists from the territories they represent.
The call is open to visual artists, filmmakers, writers, performers, musicians, designers and cultural researchers under the age of 35 (born after December 31st 1977). Artists have to present one specific proposal related to the concept. There are no submission fees and the opportunity is open to everyone regardless of gender, religion, social and political behaviours. Artists that have participated in more than one previous edition can’t apply, priority will be given to artists that have never attended the event.
Artists will be selected by the curatorial team composed by: Charlotte Bank, Alessandro Castiglioni, Nadira Laggoune, Delphine Leccas, Slobodne Veze/Loose Associations, Marco Trulli and Claudio Zecchi. They will co-operate as a collective for the selection of the artists and the design of the event.
The curators will select the participants on the basis of the presented materials. Their decision is final and not subject to appeal. The results will be documented in a report, presenting the reasons for the choice of artists. Quality of work and how well your proposal meets the concept will be basic selection criteria.
If your work is selected you will be invited to attend the event and present your work. The organisation will provide shipment of the work, insurance, installation, production of site specific projects, travel, board and lodging and support for visa requests.
The title is ERRORS ALLOWED, which focuses on regimes of knowledge and self generated education strategies in the arts and their reflection on the broader society.
BJCEM guarantees an acceptance of applications from all over the World, since there is a minor quota for international guest artists.
Application deadline extended:
17 February 2013
