Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence has recently become a partner of Google Arts and Culture.
Over 200 artefacts from Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence, including rare videos like an interview with composer Yukio Tsuji explaining his latest projects and his inspiring experience at Morassutti’s art residency and images from the art residency related to visual arts can be viewed online on Google Arts & Culture. Thanks to a partnership between the Italian art center and Uronto artist community some images and ‘stories’ will also reveal the fascinating narratives behind unique objects such as “What Remains”, a scroll painting (Pattachitra) realized by Fouzia Mahin Choudhury at the Dubalhati Palace in Bangladesh painted using an ancient traditional style where Mythological narratives or folktales are inscribed on a cloth base surface with drawings. With the art residencies coming online, more people can now learn about the activities of the art center and discover some interesting facts about it. Users will also be able to see art projects, meet interdisciplinary artists from all over the world and dive into the Berlin independent art scene in just a few clicks.
Some of the most important items of the online exhibitions are:
● An interview under the porch of the Small Church of St Anthony of Padua at Art Aia – Creatives / In / Residence with John Strasberg, son of Lee Stasberg, director of the Actors Studio. ● Sustainability in the arts. Visiting artists meeting an Italian Prince in the lands of Friuli Venezia Giulia. ● Unusual spaces for art and culture in Berlin and its vital creative community. ● Uronto Artist Community at The Dubolhati Palace in Bangladesh and some of its art practice and their ancient traditional style. ● Mappe fluide. Site-specific installations in an old stable from the end of the 19th century reused as an art and exhibiting space of the art center.
