What is Open Panoràmic ?
Open Panoràmic is a call addressed to everyone worldwide who wants to take part in Festival Panoramic 2020. It is a meeting point generating interactions between creators, curators and audience.
Panoràmic is the meeting point where all selected creators will show their work to a group of selected art world agents (such as curators, gallery owners, art centers and festivals directors or visual art specialists from public institutions). They will exchange views with the aim of promoting and supporting the artists’ audiovisual creations through their networks or institutions.
In its fifth edition, Panoràmic develops the concepts of uncertainty, chance and prediction.
Unprotected from the phenomena of nature and the facts of history, humanity has always tried to predict the future, by considering repeating structures or unique, unpredictable events. Uncertainty, however, crosses all areas of life and knowledge and, from it, recalls aspects such as risk, predictions, forecasts or chance. In fact, art has always moved in the territory of uncertainty, challenging the representation of reality, projecting possible futures and escaping the determinism of absolute truths. The fascination for chance, voluntary and unpredictable at the same time, has always had a place in the creative process. In this context, chance meets the real, not to reveal its meaning but to challenge the norms conditioning its perception and to set a starting point, to reset. Today, the volume, speed and diversity provided by massive data (big data) inaugurate a new scenario to foreseen the future and be able to modify it.
