Call for artist residency in Tempo Reale's studios at Villa Strozzi in Florence
SIAE / Progetto SIAE - Classici di oggi
This project is realized in collaboration with Fosca and Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea
In our present day society plagued by visual saturation, sound research has acquired an important and ethical value in the world of research and education.
In 2015, Tempo Reale opens its spaces to artists or artistic organizations that are investigating within the boundaries of sound and music using contemporary languages.
A qualified committee will evaluate and select the submissions, presented through a public call for artists, that will have to describe a creative and/or research project that involves sound. The selected project will be hosted in the fully equipped studios of Tempo Reale's Villa Strozzi headquarters in Florence.
This initiative is meant to promote and support contemporary creativity through a simple but tangible gesture animated by the purpose of analysing and sustaining contemporary artistic languages.
The selected artists will have full access to studios and equipment and they will be free to independently conduct their research. Their work will be supervised in various phases of the residency (introduction, monitoring, conclusion) by specific artistic and technical members of Tempo Reale's team.
The length of the residency will be of three months with timetables and deadlines programmed according to the extent of the proposed project, its needs and the number of accepted submissions – whether intensive or spread throughout the weeks - in order to create an environment around Tempo Reale where different artistic ventures coexist. In the centre's perspective of non-formal education, this coexistence will also allow the genesis of a second complementary layer of experience and exchange. At the end of the residency there will be a chance to show the public the result of the conducted research in the form of a conference/performance in the spaces of Le Murate. Progetti Arte Contemporanea or in Villa Strozzi.

The call is open all year round and the projects will be evaluated on a regular basis.
