Thanks to the contribution of the European Community, in the latest years the LPM project was brought aboard, to produce many foreign editions as in Xalapa (MX), Minsk (BY), Mexico City (MX), Cape Town (SA), Eindhoven (NL) and 2 in Amsterdam (NL) in addition to those held in Rome (IT). Since 2004, we hosted more than 4.600 artists, 2.625 amongst performances, workshops and showcases, recording an overall amount of 72 participant countries and welcome more than 1.500.000 visitors.
Again, this XIX edition seeks to enhance the practice of live video performance, thanks to a rich and unpredictable program aimed at exploring different themes through new audiovisual languages, techniques and technologies.
The daily schedule will be loaded with many activities: Workshops, Lectures and conferences, Presentations of projects and products, AV Performances, Digital scenography, VJ-DJ Sets.
Vj, artists, designers, professionals and the audience will be involved in the manifold planned activities: from experimental audiovisual performances, architectural mapping shows, and VJ-DJ Sets to workshops, roundtables, and presentations of products and hardware, with a special regard for Free and Open Source projects. Meeting areas devoted to the interaction among the hundreds of participants will be the corollary for the whole duration of the event.
LPM is designed as a place of dialogue, comparison and exchange of ideas and information between artists and fans in the field that are accustomed to meet, communicate and interact mostly in the virtual space of the network. A real meeting place, a space that fulfils an important opportunity for dialogue and exchange, LPM encourages research, experimentation, the encounter between different forms of artistic expression, the interaction of multiple techniques and digital technologies, analog, software and hardware.
LPM is an unmissable spectacle during which the audience has the chance to meet the world’s largest selection of artists active in the field of live video performances.
To attend the meeting, participants must register by following the procedures in the “Call to participate” section of the website, by choosing from several subscription options.
In order to give the opportunity to host as much performances as we can receive, the maximum duration of each show is 30 minutes. Registration is open until April 18, 2018.
Through our 14 years of experience, we were able to draw a conceptual map of the trends that have most influenced the creation of live video performances, and the program of this edition reflects and investigates these trends:
The Meeting aims to promote transnational movement and exchange of ideas, artworks and artists. All funds recovered by LPM are invested to support innovative research and experimentation in the field of live visuals with the latest technologies.
