1M Sotto la metro is a site and time specific exhibit focused on interactive art organized by Fusolab 2.0, curated by Arianna Forte in collaboration with Flyer and Atac. The project, promoted by Roma Culture, is the winner of the public grant Contemporaneamente Roma 2020-2021-2022 edited by the Department of Cultural Activities and implemented in collaboration with SIAE.
Five interactive works and new media art projects exhibited in five stations of the Metro C in Rome for five days, from 26 to 30 May 2021.
One of these will be selected through a call, to which you can apply for free until 12 pm of Sunday 25 April 2021. The selected project will be announced on Tuesday 4 May 2021
1M sotto la Metro is an immersive experience, designed to involve the metro public who finally becomes the protagonist of a space they pass through every day without ever actually experiencing it.
The stations of Metro C become dimensional gates and the exhibited artworks are passages that lead to new points of view on the world and new stops of the imagination.
Next stop: 1M sotto la Metro.
1MSM is looking for an interactive contemporary artwork, that is a project in which the active participation of the viewer is essential, to be included in its artistic program.
Taking into consideration the artistic quality of the dialogue between the level of content and the level of interaction, installations and projects of digital arts and new media are preferred but projects that in any artistic form address the notion of interactivity can participate.Given the health emergency situation, projects in which the live presence of the artist or a performer is required or in which close contact between several people is expected will not be accepted.
Participants are invited to present projects related to the topic: exploration of the limits of the present time, with reference to the current socio-political situation, the critical implications of the diffusion of new technologies, the relationship between human beings and nature, the dreams and needs shared in this precise historical moment globally.
To participate in the 1MSM call for projects it is necessary to fill in the form, by 12 pm on Sunday 25 April 2021.
Participation in the announcement and selection are free of charge
The projects will be selected by the 1MSM internal commission, evaluating artistic value and feasibility, and the winner will be communicated privately by Tuesday 4 May 2021.
