Deadline: 10 Sept 2019

Artists will have the benefit to be promoted internationally and to display their work in a prestigious location in the center of Milan. The participating works will be integrated in a common lay-out concept that involves contemporary art, design, and technology. Many car and drone fans in Milan will be invited.

About GaleriaZero

GaleriaZero (from 1997) may be considered a dynamic art gallery that specializes in the international promotion of artists and the increase of the communication between perception and art in its widest sense. This means that they do not center only in visual artists, but as well in photographers, performers, architects and even poets, light, and sound artists.

The concept is not just exhibiting artworks. GaleriaZero promotes presentations as a general concept and integration between several art forms. The aim is to provide a specific art experience in line with the theme and concept of the exhibition project. They transmit a specific meaning in the conjunctions presented in order to promote a social discussion or contribution of interest.

In the mentioned sense, GaleriaZero is not a commercial art gallery, but more a promoter of artists and a creator of socially relevant art presentations realized in collaboration with the artists, the location, and specific professionals for the characteristics and the quality of the art experiences. For this reason, artists can apply for art exhibitions and participate in the selection procedures, but in many cases artists will be approached if their way of working is in line with specific projects. Usually, participation will involve economic collaboration by artists or sponsors in order to cover the realization costs, publicity, and specially to guarantee the quality of the presentation in general.

Intelligent Objects – Call for Artists

Intelligent Objects is an open call for those artworks that act as independent agents and explore the cross-section of analog and digital media. This exhibition explores artistic objects — or their 2D and 3D representations — which appear to be responsive to our existence, or at least demand an empathy if not an emotion, that we give to sentient beings.

Call for artists application.

Deadline: 6 Apr 2015.

Art in this exhibition need not be kinetic or sculptural, it is open to any combination of traditional and new media. Artistic manifestations of “intelligence” may be static imagery, even represented by simple code.

Exhibition dates: 12 June – 17 July 2015.

Creative Arts Workshop (CAW) is a community art school devoted to fostering creativity through participation in and appreciation of the visual arts. CAW has served the Greater New Haven area since 1961, offering classes in fine arts and crafts to more than 3,000 adults and young people every year in its fully-equipped studios located in downtown New Haven.
