VENETO THE LAND OF VENICE
MoCA has been organizing, since 2006, “Arte Laguna Prize”, the Contemporary Art competition open to works from all over the world, which are selected by an international jury of experts, for the exhibition at the Arsenale Nord in Venice. Arte Laguna Prize also offers artists a network of additional opportunities, cash prizes, online visibility, art residencies, solo or group exhibitions in prestigious locations.
A group of owners of Venetian Villas, Castles, Palaces and Historic Houses will host some of the works of Arte Laguna Prize. Some locations will also offer an art residency as part of the 16th edition.
They are Renaissance villas, frescoed by artists such as Tiepolo, located from the Dolomites to the coast. They were the residences of Venetian nobles who love art, placed in particular historical, architectural and environmental contexts.
The artists selected by the owners of the individual locations agree with the organization of Arte Laguna Prize to loan their works for the set-up and display to the public, with relative promotion and dissemination.
