Mostrami Factory @Folli50.0: programma dal 28 al 31 maggio
Mostrami Factory Live Graphic Contest
THE DATE FOR THE REGISTRATION TO THE CONTEST WAS MOVED TO 20 MAY;
IF SELECTED, GRAPHICS SHOULD BE EQUIPPED WITH THE ADAPTER FOR VGA/HDMI.
Mostrami is back with a new opportunity for young artists ... while we define the program for the reopening of Mostrami Factory @ Folli50.0, we launch a new challenge: a live graphic contest in several sessions that aims to involve 20 different participants.
What is it? The contest will focus on the definition of a graphic (artwork), with a pay-off for a t-shirt dedicated to Mostrami: the artists will compete to build the "Mascot - Folly" of the project Mostrami Factory @ Folli50.0. The artwork must be placed inside the t-shirt along with a pay-off, which encloses the mood and spirit of the project. "Folly" wants to be a real mascot, completely representing the spirit and activity of the Factory: a place where everyone can "stay and do well" and where the different arts, the visual sense, but also the music, theater and cinema, live in harmony. Dates: The graphic live contest will take place on Thursday 21 and Friday. On May 22, 2015, the winner will be announced during the final evening with cocktail party and DJ sets. Each sessions of the contest will take 2 hours:
Thursday 21: from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm / from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Friday 22: From 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm/ from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Award: The winner of the contest will win a cash prize, which is 300 € and he/she will see his drawing printed on the shirts that the staff of Mostrami wear and the ones that will be sold on Mostrami’s, Folli50 and Music Priority’s websites. Here you can find Mostrami Bando Folly to download with further specifications. We thank Music Priority, partner in the realization of Mostrami contest and musical evening.

Contest “ARTIST IN RESIDENCE”
The Artist in Residence program provides for the participation of 30 young artists from all over Europe and the Mediterranean, who from late March to late April 2015 will move to Sicily to create new art works.
The selection of artists is made by a scientific committee composed of eminent representatives of each category of the competition (below specification) and will be based on the presentation of a new project, meant to be developed during the stay. The point is to lead artists outside of the traditional circuits of art: the experience out of the institutional centers of artistic production allows the artist to establish a more direct and authentic relationship with the territory and its inhabitants and for them, the artists will design their works.
Dead line: February 6, 2015
Sections: painting and sculpture, textile art, goldsmith art and crafts, photography and visual arts as video art and digital art, music and sound compositions.
Registration fee: no
