FESTIVAL ART SHAKE. ITALIA
Festival di arte contemporanea
December 27th – January 3d
Termoli, Galleria Civica d’Arte Contemporanea
Curator: Emanuela De Notariis
Born as a project of research and experimentation within young artistic languages, Art Shake interacts with the public and the city, inside and outside the art system, through an interface of entertainment.
Trying to be alternative to the artistic and cultural events directed to a specific target, Art Shake promotes art charachterized by hybrid languages and multiplicity of media, able to soothe the wounds of reality, with wonder.
A fil rouge connects visual arts to music, performance and literature, all made of the blood of the controversial epoch we’re living in. They metabolize conflicts and uneasiness of our epoch, skinning it and gutting its sociocultural superstructures. And then sewing new skins over it, made of imagination.
Today blogs and poetry, comics and art history are all equal sources of inspiration, masters of a language of signs with an highly sensitive power, remedies made of imaginary, for a schizoyd-risk society.
Art Shake was born in Termoli, a small town of molisan coast of Italy. It shows how “cultural outskirts” can be right places for experimentation, because they’re re not subjected to the saturation of events. So they become stimulus and battle for the achievement of a contemporary culture, that dialogues with local and traditional, giving an active role to the public.
Art Shake’s visual artists, videomakers, performers, musicians and writers come from different parts of Europe, of Italy and of Molise region.
In the web, Art Shake and it’s artists work with the main social networks, because they consider art as exchange, communication, net of sinergies.
