Running concurrently with Lo Schermo dell Arte Film Festival, VISIO – European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images is also part of the project.
Featuring an exhibition and several seminars and meetings, the programme aims to promote video artists’ international mobility and cultural exchange.
The eighth edition runs from November 12 – 17, 2019, under the curatorship of Leonardo Bigazzi and features the participation of 12 young European artists selected through an open call.
