    The Blank Conversation is a project dedicated to under 35 artists and it has been developed in two years, in 2014 and 2015, respectively dedicated to Italian and foreign artists.
    For this project, the artists will spend a short time in Bergamo, as guests at The Blank Residence. During their stay, the artists are able to know the most important cultural realities of Bergamo and they can interface with The Blank staff.
    Their residence is recorded with photographies and the whole collected material is then published in a small bilingual publication, that testimony the experience and the research of the involved artists.
