Palazzo Poli in collaboration with La Portineria and Suburbia Contemporary will begin from 2021 a project dedicated to research and artistic production: Studio. Another space is joining the new center for contemporary art in Florence.
As indicated by its name, Studio is an artist studio, an active place of research and experimentation inside of Palazzo Poli where the project spaces of La Portineria and Satellite already reside. Continuously throughout the year, with open call or invitation, artists will be accommodated in the space that they could use as a personal atelier for periods which range from a few days to several months. Studio has a format in constant evolution, each residency experience will be lived and formalized by the artists in a personal way (for example with open studios, talks or exhibitions).
The objective of Studio, apart from supporting artists, is stimulating an exchange between them and the public by making some phases of the creative process visible. Studio is directed and curated by Matteo Innocenti and Francesco Ozzola – directors of La Portineria and Suburbia Contemporary.
