The Call Outros Territórios had its deadline closed on February 5.
We are all surprised by the national and international repercussions achieved: there were 297 registrations from 36 countries! We are also enthusiastic about the good quality of the works presented. At the end, 101 proposals were submitted. Out of these, 91 were qualified to be evaluated by the jury.
Check the finalist proposals, honorable mentions and other submissions in the gallery and download the judgment minutes here.
Soon the exhibition at the Viaduto das Artes (Arts Overpass) will open; check the news at our blog.
Other Territories is a suite of ephemeral interventions proposed for a hilly neighborhood in Belo Horizonte: Buritis. The plan envisages an instantaneous transformation of the landscape through the simultaneous occupation of the many stilt systems propping up the hillside buildings.
The array of forgotten spaces, ignored for their unsightly strangeness, will be infused with city life through an event that posits an open field of study: the latent possibilities in the existing city. This will be an opportunity to test new ideas, exchange experiences and awaken sensibilities; a way of showing that modest interventions with limited resources can generate lasting change (whether material or institutional) and become instruments through which to devise alternative solutions for the urban recomposition of such a frayed urban fabric as Belo Horizonte's. Video projections, light art, plays, horticulture, landscape interventions, paintings, objects, ephemeral constructions and extreme sports are just some of the many possible ways these spaces could be occupied.
The interventions will be chosen through a public, international open call for projects and the selected ideas will comprise an exhibition at the left-field venue Viaduto das Artes (Arts Underpass)—Phase I.
Phase II of Other Territories will execute a number of the projects selected during Phase I and organize a free itinerary for visiting the executed works. The idea is to configure a circuit for debate on issues pertaining to the city, explore interfaces between architecture, the visual arts, public lighting and the cityscape, and problematize city management, environmental and architectonic liabilities, urban voids and the real-estate market.
