Nardò, Italy


Baroque Blue is an art residency open to worldwide artists, architects, designers, performers, musicians, writers, who will be able to apply individually or in multidisciplinary groups. The call is reserved for all those who work in the field of environmental art or Land art through visual, performative, photography, video, applied arts, eco-psychology, writing, site-specific interventions, musical installations, relational art etc. Baroque Blue is mainly based on supporting and stimulating creative processes through a full immersion in nature and art, a seductive isolation from contemporary frenzy. All the works and the convivial moments will be documented with photographs, videos and reports for the preparation of a MULTIMEDIA CATALOG that will be published online, as an INTERACTIVE MAP of the interventions on site. The program will be advertised through PRESS RELEASES and magazines and the press kit, a copy of DVD and the Certificate of Participation will be given to all artists.
