FOUNDED IN 2012
PRESIDENT Paola Tognon
contemporary locus is a project which builds new and temporary connections between contemporary visual research and secret or disused places of the past saving historical, artistic and social evidences of the communities. It is aimed at the interpretation and reactivation of these places with site specific works and interventions by foreign and Italian artists and it plans to share an online connection through new technologies, such as social nerworks, apps and websites. For each site, contemporary locus involves artists whose work could echo and correspond to the elected places, with their story and their condition of secrecy or disuse. Today contemporary locus is also an association born with the aim of broadening the efficiency and the geography of its goals, stemming always from the multimedia work of contemporary artists and from the use of new technologies as spaces of communication and circulation of ideas and projects.
