12.03.2018 - 21.10.2018
From the 12th of March until the 23rd of March, Etopia Center for Art and Technology will be hosting the third edition of Media Facade Academy, an intensive training program designed for artists, professionals and students from Spain interested in the skills, abilities and the framework needed to operate Etopia’s Media Facade, as well as creating and developing inedit works visible in that impressive artistic media display.
Since last year, the program is part of smARTplaces, and from 2018 strengthens its cooperation with Azkuna Zentroa and Dormunder U. Both centers will also host inedit works created for the Sun Screen in Bilbao and in a new media wall in Dortmunder U. Each center will also present the possibilities of the urban screens used as media art through different activities, to be held in the coming months.
In this first phase of Media Facade Academy in 2018, Etopia has prepared a practical oriented program with the participation of Néstor Lizalde, Rebeca Bazán and María Blasco, artists already having a significant expertise in the use of this media display. Through learning ‘seminar pills’, the artists will experiment and explore the possibilities of the media facade. Beside this workshop and broadcasting tests, they will receive training and a mentorship to develop their personal projects.
During the session on 21st march, Media Facade Academy will host the presentation of the ‘Ad Hoc’ open call, enabling a selection of artists, after their participation in Media Facade Academy, to exhibit its audiovisual creations specifically created for the Dortmunder U and Azkuna Zentroa.
The call to participate in Etopia’s Media Facade Academy is open until the 28th of February. Follow the link for more info Media Facade Academy open call for artists (only Spanish).
