Cheap Street Poster Art Festival – 2nd edition in Italy

logo

Cheap, the festival exclusively dedicated to street poster art, is now in its 2nd edition. The festival is scheduled to take place from May 1 to May 10 in the urban public spaces of four different neighborhoods in the city of Bologna, Italy. The core identity of the festival revolves around bringing artists’ creations into outlying areas and collaborating closely with local administrations and city residents; Cheap takes on the challenge of promoting urban renewal through creative efforts involving the use of paper, the central element of poster art.

Unlike last year’s edition, this year’s festival will focus exclusively on urban spaces and develop along two main lines: on one hand, it will host a series of site-specific interventions by Italian and international artists with extensive experience in the street poster art scene invited by the festival organizers; on the other hand, the festival is issuing an open call, which can be viewed at http://www.cheapfestival.it, targeting not only street artists but also illustrators, photographers and graphic artists with an invitation to engage with the paper medium and poster format.

1,050 square meters of paper and 112 liters of glue used, 125 artists selected through the 2013 Open Call for Artists: these figures from the first edition of Cheap illustrate the high level of participation by artists from numerous countries, both in and outside of Europe.

Just like the first edition, artists are welcome to participate in the 2014 edition individually or as part of a group, proposing from one to three projects. All work must be exclusively designed in black and white and can be created using various techniques: vector graphics, illustration and photography. Applicants are requested to send files with a minimum resolution of 300 dpi and maximum dimensions of 70×100 cm. All proposed artwork must be received by the Cheap organizers no later than midnight on April 10th, 2014.

Surreal City: Contemporary Art Group Exhibition

 

Exploring contemporary surrealism through urbanism; Surreal City focuses on pictorial representations of contemporary Asian cities. The exhibition creates a dialogue between two artists from diverse backgrounds working in different mediums, yet whose practices display similar characteristics of contemporary surrealism.

3

Liu and O’Connor continue in the artistic tradition of surrealism founded by the French poet Andre Breton and defined by artists such as Salvador Dali. Surrealism was a philosophical movement that found truth in the world through the subconscious and dreams rather than logical thought. The figurative compositions of the early surrealists were often difficult to read as they used illusion and random thought to try and make sense of a world disrupted by the horrors of World War I. The personal explorations of Liu and O’Connor are not unlike that of their European predecessors. For these present-day surrealists contextual surroundings are also rapidly changing but it is the effects of social and economic development, rather than war, that affects their daily lives.

Liu, who holds a MA in digital photography, imparts her own dreams and memories on real-life by overlaying colourful animals and flora on pictures of Beijing’s cityscape. The diverse urban environment provides her with a background with which to create her pictorial fantasylands. Liu’s images revolve around her personal memories of childhood and relationships. While some lean towards melancholy there is an underlined playfulness presented in her works.

Unconditional optimism is something that transcends itself in O’Connor’s imaginary city scenes. In a new series focused on the Asian mega centres Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei and Tokyo, he concentrates on ordinary citizens in fantastical situations. The city is an elaborate stage in O’Connor’s work, where the ordinary becomes extraordinary and the most common of people become super stars. He reinforces a sense of theatre and spectatorship in his works through descriptive details of ordinary people and everyday scenes but his use of colourful and cartoon-like visuals create a dream-like scene that is strange yet familiar.

The experience of a surreal society illustrated via the artworks of O’Connor and Liu arrive from the combination of visual realities of document photography subverted with personal expressions of reality altered by their digital capabilities. Featuring subjectivity and a rejection of normality; Surreal City presents scenes from the everyday, as we have never them seen before.

Prague Quadrennial 2015

Prague Quadrennial 2015 will connect Music to Weather and Politics while laying down a brand new map for the city centre.

020299_05_245286

Not just once every four years but rather for four years. Not just  in one place but rather in several places in the centre of Prague. And with more emphasis given to
the performance space as shared between makers and audience, a number of new features will bring  the 2015 edition of Prague Quadrennial (PQ) of Performance Design and Space – the biggest  international gathering of stage designers and theatre professionals – closer to the city centre,  its visitors and residents. The PQ 2015 will take place June 18-28, 2015, with central themes of  Music Weather Politics.

The  PQ  2015  Commissioners  include  the  opera  director  Jirí  Herman  (Scenography and Music);  the acclaimed scenographer Simon Banham (Scenography and Weather); and the Brazilian scenographer  and curator Aby Cohen (Scenography and Politics).The PQ 2015 is expected to welcome more than 70  countries and over 5,000 participants – just as in 2011. The overall number of visitors is  estimated to be higher than 50,000.

Sodja Lotker, the artistic director of Prague Quadrennial, says, “In 2011, we focused on  interdisciplinary exploration of scenography with a particular emphasis on visual aspects and  connections to contemporary visual arts. The PQ 2015 aims to focus on invisible scenography;  scenography as a way of shaping space which in its turn affects the nature and perception of a  relationship between the place and its residents; and influences the way we perform and live in any  given place – using all the invisible aspects with any impact on scenography: natural; aesthetical;  and socio-ethical, which symbolize the themes for Countries and Regions – Music Weather Politics.”
As usual, the PQ 2015 is announced and organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic  and realized by the Arts and Theatre Institute. For more information, please go to www.pq.cz
