OPEN CALL, Palermo special week-end residency

bi- is the first international art biennial Milo-Térénez

bi- is a driving force in supporting the role of creators, and nurturing the careers of artists, we have spent the last three months creating and debating art that makes a difference to people’s life. From Mexico to Paris, from Berlin to Cairo our creative projects and cultural exchange programmes have sought out contexts where art matters most and worked with those for whom art makes a difference in their lives.

bi- seeks to ask radical questions through participatory art projects, performances, educational initiatives and debates. We bring artists, activists, academics and audiences together for projects that address true creativity.

bi- is delighted to deal with emerging and confirmed artists coming from twelve countries all around the world. Standing on the forefront of research and promotion of new contemporary art trends, bi- provides research and production opportunities addressed to the younger generation of artists, directly in contact with recognised art critics.

bi- now expands its reach to include the newest developments in the visual arts, by continuously developing new initiatives that reflect its commitment to the broader artworld. Artist residency bi- reaffirms its strong cultural mission with its new project, a programme of artist gatherings – unrivalled in scope in the landscape of international art residencies – that will be hosted in the emblematic city of Palermo, during the appalling Manifesta12 opening.

It is a great opportunity to gather, meet and to network together in the splendid framework of Sicily. bi- offers a special occasion to take part to the residency for the special Manifesta weekend (15th - 18th of June) for two artists, curators, scholars, architects, etc... For this special weekend during the vibrant Manifesta12 opening in Palermo, the two residents will join a group of ten international artists, practitioners, art critics and art professionals.
They will live a unique experience of shared creativity, exchanging ideas and thriving together. bi- provides full accommodation in a roomy apartment at the pulsing heart of the city; a professional peer-to-peer tutoring, outstanding visibility during one of the most important contemporary art events in the world, and practical advice about the local art scene. bi- bi- does not cover travel expenses, meals, insurance, beverages, nor production costs.
