Irregular talents aims to foster social inclusion via an artistic immersive experience which promotes transnational mobility of artists, artworks, intercultural dialogue and exchanges. The focus is studying scientifically the artworks of so called “irregular” artists, enhancing the artistic value of their works and not their biographies. The project will publish monographs about the irregular artists written by art experts, and organise an itinerant exhibition, showing artworks of different artists (irregular and well-known artists).
Four exhibitions were organised during the project lifetime. The Irregular talents exhibition in Italy took place from 16 May to 14 June 2015 at the Pinacoteca Nazionale di Bologna. The Irregular talents exhibition in Poland took place from 24 June to 14 July in Toruń, and from 20 July to 14 August in Bydgoszcz. Finally the Irregular talents exhibition in Austria was open from August 29 to September 27 at Kulturhaus Bruckmuhle, Pregarten.
Irregular Talents is an intercultural project co-financed by EACEA under the Programme Culture 2007-2013.
It is organized by a consortium of European partners made by Nazareno Società Cooperativa Sociale (Italy), Międzynarodowe Centrum Zarządzania Informacją The International Center for Information Management Systems and Services ICIMSS (Poland), Wyższa Szkoła Gospodarki w Bydgoszczy (Poland), Verein Integrative Kukturarbeit (Austria).
In every country the Irregular Talents team select the Irregular Talents artists, study them and, cooperating with the art direction, organize the “Irregular Talents” art exhibition. Its goals are to look for a concrete way to study and approach art itself, without pre-judice, and to propose a way of social inclusion via culture and art. Our target beneficiaries are: Art Institutions, Culture Institutions, Associations in general, art lovers.
