Theme of the festival: Speed of color
SPEED. Perm city is quiet long and it needs to accelerate. Colorful and dynamic visual stories, that are located along major routes, should help to “speed up” the urban space and make familiar routes more interesting, emotionally rich and fast.
COLOR. Perm for today is colorless city, and it needs color accents. Hue and saturation, contrast and intensity, temper and dynamic of color. We offer artists, use all the opportunities of chromatic power and expression to change the structure and the emotional coloration of urban public spaces
SPACE. Speed of color – that is not just a slogan play with speed of light therm. Perm is the launch pad of Russian space program: 50 anniversary of it to be celebrated this year. We are expecting that the theme of outer space could become an interesting starting point in the visual stories that will be offered by artists to the Perm city and its residents. The last thing we expect – a literal illustrations “On the anniversary of Space program”. What the space is for everyone? Only a starry sky in the window for ones, the third cosmic speed and travel to other planets for others, or maybe for somebody – a family story about father, the mechanic at the jet engines factory.
