Lo schermo dell’arte hosts screenings of a series of art films and documentaries dedicated to contemporary art and its protagonists. The films in this year’s program tell of projects and works by artists who make interaction with public spaces a central theme of their artistic practice. The political and social implications of their actions, the dialogue with the urban space and the landscape, and the complex interactions with a large and diverse audience are all factors which these artists have chosen to confront, subverting schemes of all-too-often over-self-referential artistic institutional contexts.
The program is curated by Leonardo Bigazzi
Lo Schermo dell’Arte Film Festival is an international project dedicated to exploring, analyzing and promoting the complex relations between contemporary art and cinema through films, videos, installations, publications and workshops.
