A meeting organized in the context of “The Celebration of the Living (who reflect upon death)”, 3rd edition, took place in Arizona.
As a part of their stay at the Arizona State University Art Museum’s International Artist Residency Program, on Nov. 8th, 2012 Emilio Fantin and Giancarlo Norese introduced the project at Combine Studios on Roosevelt Row in Phoenix.
Since 2010, every Nov. 2nd, they consider the relationship between the living and the dead by organizing a public art event.
This was the first of a series of meetings that will help develop a collaborative process for the realization of the 4th edition that will be taking place in Phoenix in the Fall of 2013.
In Phoenix, there is new creative energy developing constantly. The diverse cultural and artistic scenes present in the city make it fertile ground for the success of this project.
With the local community help and valued participation the project can continue and become more dynamic.
Some discussions on different notions of life and death have been organized, as well as interviews, visits and explorations of the area.
