Curva Blu is INCURVA’s artist residency programme.
Curva Blu unfolds in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, on the Island of Favignana, a diverse natural environment, a territory of possible exploration and discovery.
The project aims to offer a place for artists who search a totally unique condition, where geographical, historical, and social characteristics can become sources of inspiration, base for experimentation, new dialogues and exchange. Since its inception, Curva Blu, focuses on a dialogue between the participating artists and the territory.

The fourth iteration of Curva Blu, held in June and July 2019, employs the concept of dialogue as a dialectical form of encounter and exchange. For 2019, the recipients of the research grant are: Francesco Pedraglio (Italy), Tania Pérez Córdova (Mexico), Margherita Raso (Italy) and Dominique White (UK).
The artists will use the time offered on the island to research and deepen themes and processes already present in their work, whilst being contaminated by communal living and the territory. By using personal artistic processes and discourses as creative point of departure we wish to initiate new forms of artistic production focused on collaboration, encouraging also new critical perspectives and visions.

Here, in the building where Georges Bizet wrote his masterpiece Carmen in 1875, Matt Copson premieres a bildungsroman opera in three laser-projected parts: Age of Coming, Coming of Age and Of Coming Age. His opera tells the story of a baby at odds with a vengeful god, who tries to convince him that life is miserable and cruel, and nothing more. On view High Art, Paris
