Apriamo una seconda opportunità per ricevere le vostre proposte di progetti da realizzare negli spazi della Fondazione!

In seguito al successo ottenuto dalla nostra open call e visto l’alto numero di richieste ricevute, abbiamo deciso di dare la possibilità di presentare ulteriori proposte per l’utilizzo degli spazi V–A–C Zattere.

Si invitano pertanto le associazioni e le organizzazioni veneziane interessate ad inviare entro domenica 16 agosto una proposta completa di materiali informativi a zattere@v-a-c.ru.

La Fondazione V-A-C e il Comune di Venezia, con un accordo di cooperazione, nato dalla volontà di cercare insieme risposte urgenti al contesto post pandemico, invitano, da ora e fino alla fine dell’anno, le associazioni che lavorano in ambito sociale, culturale, artistico, letterario e artigianale, a realizzare i propri progetti negli spazi della Fondazione, mettendo loro a disposizione gli ambienti, le infrastrutture e la tecnologia dello spazio alle Zattere.

Verranno valutate in particolare le proposte che coinvolgano le comunità nelle pratiche partecipative, dando precedenza a quelle associazioni e progetti che – in conseguenza del particolare momento che stiamo vivendo – non possano essere realizzati per carenza di spazi adeguati o altre difficoltà organizzative.

An exhibition, research residency and conference series curated by Joseph Grima/Space Caviar at V–A–C Zattere, Venice

Project dates: to be announced
Location: V–A–C Zattere, Venice, Italy

V–A–C Foundation is excited to announce that the architect and curator Joseph Grima, working with design research studio Space Caviar, will curate a year-long project in its Venice location of Palazzo delle Zattere examining the material, social, economic and environmental implications of architecture as a practice in the 21st century. Featuring a residency programme, an exhibition, a series of public conferences and events, research labs, a design studio and materials workshop, Non-Extractive Architecture will transform V–A–C Zattere into a live research platform focused on rethinking the balance between the built and natural environments, the role of technology and politics in achieving such a balance, and the responsibility of the architect as an agent of transformation.

Coinciding with the 17th International Architecture Exhibition, La Biennale di Venezia, the project sets out to examine — and redefine — the public’s expectations of the architect and architects’ expectations of themselves. What if architecture was understood first and foremost as a form of husbandry of the natural and built environment? What if architects dealt primarily not with form but with integration, circularity, materiality and community? What if the materials needed to construct the buildings we inhabit were sourced locally rather than mined half a world away? Non-Extractive Architecture will engage individuals within and outside the field of architecture to create an open platform through which the current role of architecture can be debated, and new paths can be defined to leverage its potential as a positive force in shaping the future of the landscape, both urban and rural.

The project will be articulated through several parallel initiatives that will simultaneously activate V–A–C Zattere on multiple levels, turning the entire Palazzo into a living laboratory for a new understanding of architecture and environmental design. These parallel strands of research, residences, public programmes, publishing and broadcasting initiatives will intertwine and overlap throughout the year, alternating levels of intensity. Outcomes of this process will continuously be exhibited, turning the venue into a ever-changing exhibition space to distribute the research findings and to advocate the principles investigated. Members of the public will be able to witness these transformations and participate in the open debates. The year’s work will culminate in the publication of a free online archive and practice manual.

Time, Forward! presents 13 new large scale installation, film and performance works by emerging and established international artists, seeking to question the notion and function of time and how it relates to new forms of consciousness, action and sight in the twenty-first century.

OPENING TIMES
Thursday to Tuesday: 11am–7pm
Wednesday: closed
Free entry

Time, Forward! is a project by Omar Kholeif, Maria Kramar and V–A—C that seeks to question the notion and function of time and how it relates to new forms of consciousness, action and sight in the twenty-first century. V-A-C Foundation has commissioned 13 new works by emerging and internationally acclaimed artists, who activated a collaborative dialogue a year before the project launched, intertwining their ideas and they were asked to imagine and suggest strategies to cope with the accelerated digital time. When our lives are deluged with images, tweets, real and fake information, can we embrace tools or positions of resistance that will help us improve our living conditions?

Participating artists: Rosa Barba, Aleksandra Domanović, Valentin Fetisov, Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, Daria Irincheeva, Alexandra Sukhareva, Christopher Kulendran Thomas in collaboration with Annika Kuhlmann, Adam Linder, Haroon Mirza, Trevor Paglen, Walid Raad, James Richards, Kirill Savchenkov, Where Dogs Run.

Taking its title from Soviet terminology to describe a ‘house of culture’ (DK is an abbreviation of the Russian ‘dom kultury’) the new events programme at Palazzo delle Zattere will reflect the kind of activities that made these cultural hubs so popular in 1920s Russia. DK’s were recreational centres set up for and developed by the locals, offering them a place to go and practise their hobbies. They were often equipped with art galleries, theatres, workshops, libraries, cinema and concert halls as well as locally run radio stations. From 26 November 2018 until 24 March 2019, V-A-C Venice will offer a new kind of cultural experience, aimed at getting even more people involved with Palazzo delle Zattere, encouraging people to enjoy and engage with the space on a more regular basis, making it their own over the next four months.

Two artists and a curator explore masterpieces from the V-A-C collection

Curated by Whitechapel Gallery Director Iwona Blazwick, the exhibition revisits and expands four displays from the V-A-C collection, first seen at the Whitechapel Gallery from 2014 to 2015. The Explorers who have brought together remarkable finds from the collection, ranging from ancient African figures to iconic masterpieces of the 20th century, are contemporary artists. Each is a leading exponent of one medium – Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is a painter and James Richards is a moving image artist; Mike Nelson is a sculptor; Fiona Banner is a creator of text based images and installations They have embarked on a journey through the V-A-C collection and present their discoveries in solo displays. Through their unorthodox installations, each artist also transforms each collection display into a new work of art.

A dialogue exhibition between Mark Dion and Arseny Zhilyaev. Taking the traditional museum practice of collections and taxonomic displays as a starting point, the artists create a wunderkammer in the making and an imaginary future museum.

A number of international artists focus on an architecture of exclusion, exploring ways of documenting and witnessing institutional spaces designed to punish and sometimes correct individuals who have been separated from the rest of society.

Parallel Convergences:

Pawel Althamer and Anatoly Osmolovsky

Curated by Nicholas Cullinan
Casa dei Tre Oci, Venice (Italy)

The project brings together for the first time the work of Polish artist Pawel Althamer and Russian artist Anatoly Osmolovsky, both of whom are from the generation shaped by the decisive shift from communism to post-communism, experienced in Russia and the Eastern Bloc in the early 1990s, and whose work shares many parallels.
