Spazio Labo’ is calling all artists and photographers for the second edition of Slideluck Bologna! Slideluck is 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 look forward to receiving a range of photographic, visual arts and multimedia submissions based on interpretations of this year’s theme! Our open call for works is online. All photographers are invited to participate by sending their multimedia slideshow from October 9th to October 29st 2015.
The slideshow will consist of over 20 artists, with each artist featuring up to five minutes of original work. In most cases, this is a photo essay of between 20 – 30 images. Every slideshow is set to open-sourced music or an audio recording (ambient sounds, live performance, spoken word etc.)
We are seeking inspiring and cohesive bodies of work from photographers and artists of all walks of life! Slideluck offer 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. Additionally, the best multimedia projects will be featured on Slideluck Editorial, a new platform dedicated to showcasing the breadth of the Slideluck photographic storytelling and giving tips and advices on effective multimedia creation.
