Whatdo modern-day tourists visit in Venice? Open one of the guidebookspublished between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and compareit with the tourist publications from the twentieth and twenty-firstcenturies, and what jumps off the page is the overlapping advice onsightseeing:the Doge's Palace and Saint Mark's Basilica, the Rialto Bridgeand the haberdashery shops (the Mercerie), a watery stroll along theGrand Canal, Renaissance paintings, and a coffee in Saint Mark'sSquare. These are by and large the destinations in a city that hasnever had to work hard to attract visitors.
Societies on the Move
deadline August, 25th
BLM and Favini announce the International Competition of Illustration and Social Graphics "Societies on the Move" which aims to stimulate the artistic imagination of cosmopolitan andmulti-ethnic views of our society.
Nowadays, the movement of people and populations imposes increasing challenges on contemporary society: the use of common resources and rights is challenged by new needs to share, while an active and informed citizenship is required with regard to the environment, consumer choices, and the dynamics of production and institutional processes.The creation of future societies can also start from a vision.
The call is aimed at graphic artists and illustrators, with no limit onage or nationality, and both individuals and groups can participate. Participants are asked to create an original illustration or agraphical interpretation of the theme indicated. A qualified jurywill select the best works to be printed and displayed to the publicin an exhibition
