Among the projects focus on education, promoted by Fondazione Pastificio Cerere, stand out residence programs for artists and curators. In 2009, the educational path began with 6ARTISTA, residence-program for young artists living in Italy, realized by Pastificio Cerere and Civita, with the support of Allianz. The fourth edition of 6ARTISTA is supported by Camera di Commercio of Rome and by Fondazione Roma.
6ARTISTA was created to support the professional growth of talents by creating an alternative and non-institutional way for developing relations between young artists and contemporary art-system.
The prize provides a six-months residency at Pastificio Cerere, a space which has seen the birth and development of the most interesting artistic practices in the capital from the 1970s through today. It is a space in which artists gather, live, and work. Its aim is to provide a place of encounter between diverse languages, ideas, and practices, such that young artists may advance the development of their poetics and consolidate their artistic language. In addition, the winners will be hosted for a three-months residency at Cité Internationale des Arts. This part of the residency program is in collaboration with Incontri Internazionali of Rome.
Since 2011, the Foundation has activated the project Curator in residence, too. The curator, choose by the artistic director, proposes a one-year cultural path that is composed by different steps: the organization of exhibitions and site specific projects; the production of critical texts, monographs, catalogues; the organization of studio visits and conferences. He will also curate the exhibition of the two winners of the program residence 6ARTISTA.
