Residency Program 2018



With Ferrara Residency 2018 resina invited five artists of interdisciplinary visual and sonic practices who have explored various facets of Ferrara’s history through their own work, as well as through events and convivial activities.

The residency program is grounded in collaborative practices of learning such as reading groups, feedback sessions, collective meals and other convivial activities, as forms o deceleration and care-taking within the context of art making.

Through a series of events entitled Convivium, we have discussed various political, economic and emotional structures which support or limit artistic work in today’ neoliberal societies. These sessions have been moments in which the artists have reflected on various alternative modalities of cohabitation, through the prism of the Etruscan heritage at the National Archaeological Museum in Ferrara, as well as with Carola Peverati, a feminist activist who was part of the 1970s social movement Wages for Housework.

The residency culminated with an exhibition at Porta degli Angeli, a sharing of the artistss’ work-in-progress, titled A Fluid Haze: thought-forms from  Ferrara Residency.
