Why is such cool shit happening in Italy?? You think Seattle would embrace something like this?! I don't think so. More information HERE.
"The idea is to host the artists for variable length of time (from 1 to 4 weeks) and to offer them the cooperation of the local artisans for the production of pottery works and limited edition prints.
Furthermore the artists will have at their disposal several walls to paint around the city, in order to upgrade a few areas which are aesthetically depressed.
At the end of their stay, everything created, including new original artworks, screenprints and ceramic pieces made with the collaboration of local artisians will be showcased in a final group show.
it will take place in one of the most ancient ceramics workshop of the area, the opening is set to be on the 19th of september.
More importantly, it has to be said, the festival is entirely financed and curated by Studiocromie without any kind of sponsorship from external sources"
