ABOUT THE PROJECT
New York based artist Dora Budor is casting for reality show NEW LAVORO. The winner will get a trip to Venice this year (Summer 2013), including accommodation during Venice Biennale, and a position as one of participants in project NEW LAVORO. The video will be premiered as part of installation in Palazzo Peckham in Venice this year, a brand new venue designed and built for the 55th Venice Biennale in the summer of 2013, situated in Castello between the Giardini and the Arsenale. NEW LAVORO is looking for 18 talented participants who are willing to experiment, and go through 7 different contests judged by well-known guest artists. Participants in the show will wear special outfits designed by NY fashion brand Eckhaus Latta. Project is dedicated to exploring relations between creative industry workers and aspirational lifestyles operating behind the curtains of current sustainable economies, and takes different approach than other art reality shows; experiments with production in extreme/realistic living conditions: minimum budgets, borderline use of materials that are ‘non-artistic’, theft or misuse of commercial resources and immaterial production, testing the boundaries of how we can produce art in time of economical crisis and material overload.

ABOUT PALLAZZO PECKHAM
Palazzo Peckham is a new social space created for the 55th Biennale. The Palazzo’s interiors are by Jon Rafman, Dora Budor, Rob Chevasse, Samara Scott, Viktor Timofeev, Simon Werner, Cindie Cheung, Keller/Kosmas, Joe Hamilton and Peles Empire. Designing, art directing, collaborating and curating, each commissioned artist has been selected because of their varied and engaged relationship to working with social space. Open from May 26th, featuring a special programme of talks, performances, classes, workshops and events welcoming artists, curators, collectors and art enthusiasts from all over the world.

By paying special attention to hosting great minds coupled with a dedicated channel for online distribution, Palazzo Peckham will realise a radically diverse and inclusive program called Information Flows (But You Just Sit There). All content will be vigorously documented by in house film crew who will assist in capturing the specially commissioned artist films for the talks, events and performances.
