The Festival Art and Technology Visualismo City offers in September projections of 26 outdoor audiovisual works in Rio de Janeiro. Created as a way to discuss the future of the collective spaces today, the project involves actions that integrate Trustees, thinkers, students, artists of different areas and the general public. One of the main challenges of the initiative is to think of the cities and its multiple forms of ownership and, for that, fostered the development of artwork that left around where research will be designed. The works completed, created especially for the Visualismo, will be displayed in the Praça Mauá on 11 and 12 September in an event totally open to the public. The project will also perform projections of guest artists in the Park Madureira (6 September) and Brazil's Central (8 September). Designed and produced by Renata Sbardelini (Barn Owl and Radar Network) and Leticia Monte (Spiral), with the curator of the multimedia artist Lucas Bambozzi, the project's realization of Pontofrio and the Ministry of culture through the law of incentive to the culture – Rouanet law.

Coordinated by Bambozzi, the curatorial Council-composed by Batman Zavareze, Patricia Moran, and Henry Roscoe-, made a mapping of 180 artists, representatives of the Visual arts scene in the various regions of the country. Of this group, 30 individual proposals, in a careful step call to artists. The 15 selected by the curator and the guests Vik Muniz (RJ), Regina Silveira (SP) and United VJs (SP) are producing works created especially for projections on the ceiling of the Museum of art of River-SEA, in the building the Night, in other buildings in the surroundings of Praça Mauá. Eder Santos (MG) and the pair Gisela Motta (SP) and Leandro Lima (SP) were invited and will also have works designed during the Festival, at the Park in Central Brazil Madureira.

The selected by the curatorial Council Roberta Ch (PA), Milton Marques (DF), Yuri Firmness (PE), Lirio Ferreira (PE), Virginia dare (BA), Alice Miceli (RJ), André Parente (MG), Marilá Dardot (MG), Gaius Fazolin (SP), Duva (SP), Jonathan Ciampa-Embolex (SP), Raimo Benedetti (SP), Leandro Mendes (SC), Kátia Maciel (RJ) and Marcus Bastos (SP) participated in July VisualismoLab, where had the opportunity to optimize the development and viability of his works, addressing conceptual and technical issues in a collective immersion with the curator and the experts invited. The project still promoted a seminar open to the public which discussed the challenges of appropriation of public space and the prospects of technological support for artistic events. "The languages of works created for the Visualismo question the rigidity of predefined formats. The challenge given to the artists is to have as protagonist the unusual props that are in town, in its architecture. Are interventions with video projections in large scale spaces that carry historical and social meanings and are the property of all, that motivate an artistic interpretation ", explains Bambozzi.

During the Visualismo Art and Technology Festival City the public space will be permeated by the art and the creative thinking of the invited artists and selected, including both the works produced especially for the project, as adapted work. Display locations, M. Park (6), Brazil's Central (8) and Praça Mauá (11 and 12), will serve as stage of projections ranging from video mappings, video-performances and installations the immersive audiovisual performances. "The interventions suggest forms of ressignification of public spaces, prospects for the enjoyment of visual culture and connection to the city ", says Renata Sbardelini, which, alongside Leticia Monte, is one of the creators of the initiative that aims to extend over the years, proposing positive experiences of resumption of collective spaces and the art as a means and as a bridge technology. Leticia still emphasizes the formative aspect of the proposal: “There was a special care in providing the artists involved the ideal conditions to think about a new project, with all the characteristics which this involves, both conceptual techniques, with attention and availability monitoring are rarely given to artist in edicts and other projects to promote”.

The project is also the approach affinity between the bidders and the sponsor. "We believe in proposals capable of uniting art and technology, allowing innovation to develop, include and connect people, resign their relationships with themselves and with the city ", Susy says Yoshimura, Director of the Foundation Via Retail, responsible for investments in social projects of the retailer. "The Visualismo is adherent to concept adopted by Pontofrio and presents the innovative culture, accessible and democratic ", Susy full Yoshimura.
