dotART and Exhibit Around APS associations, promoters of Trieste Photo Days festival, are launching a free open call to celebrate Pier Paolo Pasolini‘s cultural and iconographic legacy through photography on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.
Pasolini Photo Days 2022 project will be a tribute that will combine photography, literature, re-mediation and moments of encounter, in the international context of Trieste Photo Days and the Photo Days Tour (the setting for events taking place outside the city during the festival).
The best photos collected through the open call will flow into a double photographic volume from which a collective exhibition will be taken in tribute to the figure of Pasolini, an intellectual and total artist of the twentieth century.
Pasolini Photo Days 2022 is realized with the contribution of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, together with CRAF – Centro Ricerca e Archiviazione della Fotografia, Fondazione Pordenonelegge.it and the Municipalities of Cormons, Grado, Lignano Sabbiadoro, Sacile, San Daniele del Friuli and Sesto al Reghena.
The two Volumes
The open call is aimed at the production of two photographic volumes dedicated to Pasolini:
Both volumes will include, in addition to the works collected and selected through the open call.
Selections are open from 29 July to 11 September 2022 on my.exhibitaround.com. Registration is completely free, as is participation in the project in case of selection.
The best of the two volumes will be displayed in a cycle of group exhibitions as part of the Photo Days Tour in Italian north-eastern cities Cormòns, Grado, Lignano Sabbiadoro, Sacile, San Daniele del Friuli, Sesto al Reghena and Trieste. A preview of the project will be presented at the end of October 2022 at Trieste Photo Days and will continue with exhibitions and meetings until March 2023.
