SLIDELUCK BOLOGNA II
CURATED BY CHIARA BARDELLI NONINO (VOGUE ITALIA)
THEME: “WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE”
WHEN: SATURDAY NOVEMBER 21 2015
WHERE: SPAZIO LABO’ CENTRO DI FOTOGRAFIA – BOLOGNA – IT
Spazio Labo’ is presenting Slideluck Bologna II, back in town for its second show after a fantastic debut last year.
What is Slideluck? Slideluck is a New York City-based non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, and artwork for an unforgettable night. The evening begins with a potluck dinner lovingly provided by event attendees.
When everyone has had their fill, we’ll dim the lights, hush the crowd, and begin a dynamic slideshow of visual art from over twenty artists. Slidelucks have been held around the world, including Istanbul, Bogota, and London, and we’re excited to be holding our second show in Bologna!
This year’s show will be organized again by the center of photography Spazio Labo’. Slideluck Bologna II’s participants will be selected by Chiara Bardelli Nonino of Vogue Italia and will feature submissions based around the theme of “WELCOME TO THE ANTHROPOCENE.” According to several scientists, we are now living in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, an epoch dominated by a single species: human beings. The aim of this theme is to investigate the relationship between man and nature in the contemporary world.
We have received a range of photographic, visual arts and multimedia submissions based on interpretations of this year’s theme! Slideluck offers a wide range of emerging and established photographers and visual artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a local audience, but also globally through the Slideluck website. The best multimedia projects will also be featured on Slideluck Editorial, as selected by Editor-in-Chief Maria Teresa Salvati.
