2013 Visible Award The jury as a public event
Visible. where art leaves its own field and becomes visible as part of something else
A project by Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto and Fondazione Zegna, curated by Matteo Lucchetti and Judith Wielander
On occasion of its second edition, the Visible Award evolves it project and seeks an innovative approach that passes through a more transparent methodology around its jury session which takes form during a public event at the museum. The jury session will not only be a confrontation between experts, in order to select an exemplary socially engaged art project, but rather a moment for sharing knowledge and collective learning, that in the process of assessing the winning project will hopefully create an opportunity to put at work the vast network of professionals existing around the Visible project.
On 14 December the prestigious, interdisciplinary jury, chaired by Charles Esche, will gather a together in order to assess the merits of the 10 shortlisted projects and select the winner of the 2013 Visible Award.
