Ready to Jump? is an exhibition curated by LaRete Art Projects for Milan & Beyond. A vision in motion. Presented by Connecting Cultures the exhibition-event at the Milan Triennial involves artists, architects, urban planners, photographers, scientists, policy makers and performers in order to propose new ideas on, participation and plurality in the city through ongoing exhibitions and a calendar full of round tables, meetings, workshops and performances.
LaRete Art Projects and the International Award for Participatory Art were asked to respond to this open invitation to bring new views, proposals, experiences and projects to demonstrate how art and culture can be catalysts for change in contemporary urban settings. In a permanent location during the exhibition can be found a "social betterment" area that is dedicated to documenting artistic projects that manage to create social "improvement" through collaborative interventions. On May 9, 2013 at 6:00 pm, Luigi Benedetti, Director General of the Legislative Assembly of the Emilia-Romagna, as well as Julia Draganović and Claudia Löffelholz, curators of the Award, will explore and discuss these practices along with the experiences of the International Award for Participatory Art.
