Art is the magic mirror you make to reflect your invisible dreams in
visible pictures.

George Bernard Shaw

Mr. Mov is a video art festival, created in Brescia and produced by the work of seven budding curators. It has a travelling nature and, without a fixed exhibition venue, it aims to be always on the move, collaborating also with different places.

Mr. Mov isn’t fixed, but it’s looking around.

The screen becomes our mirror, which can open the door to contemporary art and thanks to Mr. Mov you can explore the different video solutions, chosen by artists in the last 3 years.

Mr. Mov is universal and international, because it discloses and tells a slice of the video art overview, without thematic or geographical limits.

Mr. Mov is like a wide open window, which allows the audience to eye the different works inside it, but also to look around, wandering in the several places that host it.

But it isn’t just a simple guest: it becomes also a sort of intruder in Brescia area, and it settles provisionally in unusual places, which are not used to house contemporary art.

Different spaces are discovered and revalued by the sudden arrival of Mr. Mov: it becomes a passing inhabitant, always ready to move and to travel from location in location.

7 CURATORS + 1 ARTIST + 1 ACADEMY

Mr. Mov is a project by 7 budding curators, which arose during the Multimedia Programming’s class, included in the second level degree of Art’s Communication and Didactics in the SantaGiulia Fine Arts Academy. This class is taught by the visual artist Alessandro Mancassola.

SantaGiulia Academy offers more than 260 courses, that go through all the artistic and design ambits. Teachers are young and dynamics,  professional figures able to offer to the students an inestimable heritage of knowledges and experience and to put them in contact with the national and international labour market.
