CSAV Artists' Research Laboratory is an experimental platform designed to provoke formal and informal discussions and exchanges among artists of different generations and nationalities. It aims to explore different forms of art-making through uninstitutional teaching methods. Between fifteen and twenty young artists from all nationalities will be selected. The participants will attend daily workshops and seminars run by Hilary Lloyd and guests.
The application and laboratory are free of charge. All applications should be completed via FAR’s website.

"è ora di alzarsi" (it's time to wake up), the title chosen by Hilary Lloyd for the XXVII CSAV at the Ratti Foundation in Como, opens a vast field of possibilities. It may suggest a call to political action, an early morning unfocused gaze, the passage from horizontality to verticality, different forms of engagement or disengagement, a prolonging of pleasure. Starting at the intersection among this peculiar mix has long been central to Lloyd’s work; artists will spend their time in Como inventing, exchanging and exploring courageous, bizarre and extraordinary ideas in meetings, workshops and seminars in and around Lake Como.

Hilary Lloyd lives and works in London.
