Even as Ravenna, Italy is the eternal steward of mosaic’s Byzantine past, it is also the incubator for the art form’s dynamic future. This is no more evident than in the Young Artists and Mosaic (GAEM) competition, a biennial contest hosted by the Art Museum of the City of Ravenna (MAR) in conjunction with the international mosaic festival, RavennaMosaico. Invited artists under the age of 40 are asked to create works that “should deal with the constitutive, formal & poetic language of mosaic.”
