GREEN LIGHT FOR THE VANNI YOUNG ART SEASON 2016
VANNI and the young art: a season full of events. On 27th May the Autofocus/VANNI Project Space launches the exhibition of Francecso Pergolesi, winning artist of the Autofocus Prize for Photography at The Others in 2015. His work was selected by the panel of judges; Lorenza Bravetta, Mario Calabresi and Roberta Pagani. The exhibition (which includes an installation designed specifically for the space) presents a timeless and nostalgic visual narrative of landscapes and people inextricably linked with the artist’s childhood.
Simultaneously we are kicking off the 8th edition of AUTOFOCUS, inviting entries to VANNI’s international competition dedicated to young European artists and creative talent with the support of GAI. This year we are extending the project and doubling the creative categories. As well as our existing awards for best visual art and best performance art, we are adding awards for best video and best photography.
Competition entries are welcome in any artistic media, genre or technical application. Entries must be received by midnight on the 10th September 2016.
