Open call 2017
Video Sound Art is a production center and festival based in Milan.
Since 2011 VSA produces and exhibits selected works by young artists. The festival creates a visibility network and supports the development of new projects throughout the year, working as mediator between artist, galleries and foundations.
The program includes screenings and talks led by personalities from the art worlds, teachers of philosophy and theoreticians on topical questions and themes the scientific committee of the festival have drawn attention to. The project has the support of the Comune di Milano, Regione Lombardia, Fondazione Nuovi Mecenati and Institut français Milano.
Every year Video Sound Art launches an open call to support young talents in various areas of the contemporary art practice. The premise of the operation is to reward excellence in contemporary visual culture, creating an event of national resonance, a showcase for new creative talent to put them in comparison with some well-known artists working at international level. During the seventh edition, thanks to the outstanding collaboration with the milanese foundry Fonderia Artistica Battaglia , the financial contribution to the juvenile artistic talent was employed to realize the bronze editions of the two artists selected.
