Join us for the culmination of Lumen's Residency in Atina, Italy, between 1-15 September 2016. The resident artists and exhibition have been curated by Louise Beer, Raymond Hemson, Melanie King and Natasha Sabatini.
This two-week residency has been set up to help like-minded artists from multi-disciplines develop their practice in a relaxed, yet productive environment. The peaceful village of Atina, situated 154km from Rome in the province of Frosinone-Lazio, benefits from natural darkness, natural beauty and is a great spot for viewing the Moon, stars and meteor showers.
Staying on site, artists have the opportunity to create works responding to the variety of astronomical sights found there.
Artists benefitted from a large studio space, telescope access, a basic darkroom and visits to Campo Cassino Observatory, Montecassino Abbey, Santa Maria Assunta and CAMUSAC Gallery.
As part of the exhibition, we will also be launching a publication by Makina Books and a film of the residency by Raymond Hemson.
