BAW - Bolzano Art Weeks
BAW - Bolzano Art Weeks is a collective event, a composite and multifaceted set of creative paths, ideas and spaces to be explored through the languages and forms of art. The aim is to enhance the multifaceted South Tyrolean art scene and, at the same time, bring it into contact with the public.
It is a network event, realised in collaboration with institutions, associations, operators and artists of the local scene, which presents in Bolzano more than 80 projects located in galleries, museums and ateliers, independent, public, private and temporary spaces.
The initiative sees Bolzano transformed into an open-air exhibition, giving artists the opportunity to present their works and projects. The selection is carried out by a technical-scientific committee made up of high-level professionals in the fields of art and creativity who work alongside the numerous institutions that converge in the organisation of BAW.
In its first edition, the event was held in the city of Bolzano and aims to reach the entire South Tyrolean territory in the years to come, with the intention of giving more and more space for expression to contemporary artists.
"Bolzano Art Weeks intends to gather and boost, to catalyse and explode the collective energies that remained dormant during the Covid-19 closures and to bring back to urban life to explore the city in all its complexity and variety and to make art once again an experience of production and fruition for many, after a particularly difficult period of isolation and forced immobility", is how founder Nina Stricker defines it.
