After 10 years VISIO launches the VISIO Production Fund, a €40,000 production fund conceived in partnership with Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato), Fondazione In Between Art Film (Rome), FRAC Bretagne (Rennes) and Seven Gravity Collection. Eight artists will be selected and invited to Florence for the 15th Schermo dell’arte and will have the opportunity to develop their own original project in dialogue with international curators and producers.
Funds will eventually be awarded to four winning artists who will produce the works and premiere them at the Festival in 2023.
This new edition of VISIO will also be accompanied by the release of a publication dedicated to the first ten years of the project (2012-2021).
The project is curated by Leonardo Bigazzi.
