TRANSITION TO “THE FLAT GARDEN ” at the former brewery cccTo Metzger of Turin.
After ” TRANSITION ZONE” (sponsored by MicroMacro Art Zone, the call for artists & curators which accompanied in 2011/ 2012 the first phase, the one of the birth of the project of the former brewery cccTo Metzger – Centro di Cultura Contemporanea di Torino, and characterized by recovery of the industrial space inside of approximately 1000 square meters), in the coming months the creative energy will focus on the outside of the historic industrial building. Art declined in every gender, dance, theater and music, but mostly street art and urban art will be the protagonists of the second phase, which involves the functional transformation of 1500 sqm of flat roofs (and/or not) of the former brewery located in Turin. Therefore the important task of regeneration / urban transformation promoted by cccTo – former brewery Metzger, the Free Zone for the arts, all the arts, goes on. In the coming months the grey roof sheathing tar will be transformed into a green zone in a colorful open-air performance space, as provided by “The flat garden” project, promoted by former brewery cccTo Metzger, MicroMacro Art Zone in collaboration with MAU Museum of Urban Art the Association ll Cerchio e le Gocce, with the sponsorship of the City of Torino District IV. As in TRANSITION ZONE, for a limited and unrepeatable time the old nineteenth-century factory in Via San Donato 68 in Turin (designed by Pietro Fenoglio, the famous Art Nouveau architect from Turin), by place of work and effort, it is now ready for another transformation. From next April on, the artists can use the open space on-site to “create”, interacting with ” the place that changes,” and leaving an indelible trace of their passage in a work individual and collective at the same time, wiht a real global visibility, and accessible to all through the cybernetic eyes offered by remote sensing satellites in orbit around the Earth ( NOTE: Google Maps should update soon its maps with new aerial views of the sky above Turin giving, with a simple click and at cost zero, potential visibility to all those who have access to the internet) .

Together with our Italian partner Associazione “e” we have implemented the Workshop titled ”Artist as Entrepreneur” during Paratissima Art Fair this week in Torino. The workshop was part of Paraschool program that offered the artists and the visitors the chance to tale part in educational activities.
Our Workshop focused on self-assessment of artists: the participants were invited to review their competences using the tools, the potential of the group and their reflection about Paratissima.
The workshop was evaluated very positive: as the initiative that is needed for artists on regular basis, empowerment for their future work and a point of critical reflection about their career.
