4 May-4 June 2021

As part of the 13th edition of Lo schermo dell’arte – Cinema and Contemporary Art Festival, from 4 May until 4 June 2021 in the spaces of Manifattura Tabacchi in Florence will take place the exhibition Resisting the Trouble – Moving Images in Times of Crisis curated by Leonardo Bigazzi, produced and organised by Lo schermo dell’arte and NAM – Not A Museum, Manifattura Tabacchi’s contemporary art programme.

Resisting the Trouble – Moving Images in Times of Crisis presents the works by the 12 participating artists of the 9th edition of VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research and residency project dedicated to under-35 artists who use moving images in their artistic practice.
The twelve films, videos, and installations present in the spaces of the former industrial complex reflect on some of the most urgent issues generated by the current world crisis, proposing alternative visions to rethink the present and imagine the future.

After having received applications from artists from 33 different nationalities, Lo schermo dell’arte closes the selection and announces the names of the 12 participants of the 9th edition of VISIO-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images, a research and residency project dedicated to under-35 artists who use moving images in their artistic practice. VISIO consists of an exhibition and a series of seminars, round tables and meetings and has fostered the development of a wide network of artists, curators and collectors.
