DRAWN ONWARD 2017
DRAWN ONWARD is an exchange project between P/////AKT in Amsterdam (NL) and Progetto Diogene in Turin (IT). Both organisations operate on a non-for-profit basis and are interested in establishing a dialogue with emerging artistic talents. The aim of this collaboration is to share audiences, networks and experiences and to support and promote the work of artists on an international platform.
After a successful first collaboration in 2016, Progetto Diogene and P/////AKT – in partnership with Barriera – decided to continue the mutual collaboration in 2017 with a new edition of the exchange program. The artists invited for the project’s second edition are: Francesco Pedraglio (IT, lives and works in Mexico City) and Paul Geelen (NL, lives and works in Amsterdam). Each of them will spend a two-month residency period followed by a solo exhibition. The exchange project offers the artists the possibility to produce new work on location – conceived specifically for the given space and context – and to present it to an international audience.
