Since 2015, thankyouforcoming runs a critic and curatorial residency program from Nice. ACROSS (scènes de province) is a collaborative, participatory and experimental project.

What Happens to People and What Happens to the Land is the Same Thing – Chapter #1

Curated by Chiara Nuzzi, the project What Happens to People and What Happens to the Land is the Same Thing explores the role of art in ecological emergence, investigating its intersections with environmental commitment, political ecology and indigenous knowledge in relation to our modernity. In this frame, the works by several artists develop different cosmologies in light of the specific topic of reconciliation, an approach facing a de-colonial sensibility in the contemporary engagement with art.

The project is thus divided in three different chapters covering in turn an evening of lectures and screening program where selected video works (by Ursula Biemann & Paulo Tavares, the Karrabing Film Collective and Uriel Orlow) will establish new powerful relations and crucial questions, followed by a video exhibition, and concluded by a collective sound walk in a botanical garden on the French Riviera (more info coming soon).

Entrée libre et gratuite, dans la limite des places disponibles.

The residency ACROSS #16 is realized with the support of the Prize ON BOARD 2017 promoted by MiBACT Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism -, General Directorate for Contemporary Art and Architecture and Urban Suburbs and by GAI – Association for the Circuit of the Young Italian Artists
