    The cultural association The Blank launches The Blank Conversations, a brand new project that involves artist in residence, interviews, publications, photography in order to create new ways of communication, telling contemporary art in a spontaneous and accessible key.
    During 2014 three artists are invited to spend a short time at the residence of the association The Blank.
    For each appointment a mini-catalogue will be available in both the spaces of the residency and the members of the network.
    The Blank Conversations tells (extra)ordinary stories to make people feel closer to art and creativity.

    The Blank gives hospitality to international artists and theoreticians for a medium/long period and offer them accommodation and relations aimed to develop artistic researches, both practical and theoretical.

    The perspective is to structure different residencies, which are able to welcome with flexibility researchers on the contemporary and to create connections with Italian and international institutions thanks to the excenge of ideas and experiences.

    The Blank Hospitality offers to all art lovers, creative and cultural workers the opportunity to experience a very special staying in Bergamo thanks to a hospitality service offered by residence The Blank. The Residence is located in Via Quarenghi 50, two minutes far from the train station and the central Via XX Settembre.

    The Blank Hospitality is part of Art in Network, in partnership with the association That’s Contamporary, developed within the project fUNDER35 of Fondazione Cariplo.

    When I visited the place I found myself in front of a massive building perfectly preserved, with a large room in the raised part that once served as a dormitory for soldiers guarding the City. I immediately thought of recreating a similar situation where, instead of soldiers, were going to spend the night not only the valiant exhibitions visitors, always willing to discover new experiences, but also the assorted group of curious people that represents the current version of the picaros, the beggars, the storytellers, the mendicant friars of the seventeenth century.

    The Blank, on occasion of the 35th edition of Bergamo Film Meeting, presents a retrospective dedicated to Franco Vaccari’s video.

    On Saturday, 11 March, at the Cinema San Marco, a selection of the artist’s video will be presented. Franco Vaccari personally introduces his own works to the public in an open meeting.
    The entrance is free.

    The retrospective starts from Nei Sotterranei (1966-67), where the images of walls of bathrooms and basements littered with graffiti assume the meaning of anonymous poetry and find a filmic equivalent in the artist’s early experiments with visual poetry. Then, there is Cani Lenti (1971), accompanied by a soundtrack taken from a Pink Floyd song, in which the act to follow and film some stray dogs highlights the different reactions of the animals in contact with the camera, showing how the observation disrupts the subject. La via Emilia è un aeroporto (2000) offers a cross section of the life of the inhabitants of Via Emilia: from the houses of people watching TV, Vaccari goes to interact with the local prostitutes, and then dwells on images of model airplanes installed along the road that allude to the desire of evasion of the inhabitants. Provvista di ricordi per il tempo dell’Alzheimer (2003) closes the exhibition; here the artist, imagining suffering from Alzheimer’s, draws from personal photos to make video memories that lose last.

    The event is organized with the support of the P420 gallery (Bologna).

    The Blank is pleased to present, on occasion of the 35th edition of Bergamo Film Meeting, an appointment dedicated to Franco Vaccari: Esposizione in tempo reale N. 45.

    On Friday, 10 March, the artist will pay homage to the city of Bergamo with the unreleased video environmental installation Esposizione in tempo reale N.45 at the Sala alla Porta Sant’Agostino and placing outside Il Mendicante Elettronico.
    For Esposizione in tempo reale N.45, Franco Vaccari has invited some of Bergamo artists to create sculptures-bed in front of the projection of his video Buona Notte, shelters in which to rest and dream.
    The artists involved in creating the beds are: Davide Allieri, Cinzia Benigni, Filippo Berta, DZT collective, Oscar Giaconia, Daniele Maffeis, Andrea Mastrovito, Giovanni Oberti, Francesco Pedrini, Maria Francesca Tassi.

    For the inauguration at Porta Sant’Agostino, the space will host the “repose” of the artists and several cultural figures throughout the night.

    The event is organized with the support of the P420 gallery (Bologna).

    The 35th edition of Bergamo Film Meeting will take place from March 11 to 19, 2017 in Bergamo.
    A rich and varied program is in the works, which confirms the Festival’s constant and ongoing effort in research and in creating connections between the most innovative trends in contemporary cinema and styles, genres and authors from the past.
    Tributes, retrospectives, and restorations of classic masterpieces counterpoint the works of “new authors” which, as usual, are featured in the Competition- Exhibition and the sections of the festival dedicated to documentaries, animation, and previews. Supported and promoted by the European Union through the Creative Europe MEDIA program, the Festival explores the cinematography of the continent between past and present, offering ideas, suggestions, new perspectives and interpretations.
    For nine days, with over 140 movies – including shorts and feature films – Bergamo Film Meeting will be the crossroads of international cinema, featuring guests, meetings, special events, live scoring, exhibitions, workshops, master classes, guided screenings for schools and children, and many other initiatives which – thanks to the contribution of partners and institutions – will allow the audience to explore the endless contaminations between movies, visual arts, literature, music, and comics.
