Wanted Creativity

Fabrica Circus goes to Venice

24 May 2018

On the occasion of the Architecture Biennial and the Venice Film Festival, from 24 May to September 2018 Fabrica Circus arrives in Venice with WANTED CREATIVITY.
Two historic stores in the Castello district (once a butcher and a carpentry), become temporary spaces for innovating, meeting, cultural exchanges and talent research.

At Via Garibaldi n°1830 you can get in touch with Fabrica sharing your visions and creative ideas through video-confessions and follow in streaming the “Circus” program: workshops, lectures and experiences about contemporary issues. Since the beginning of this year, Fabrica has hosted more than 70 international personalities, including photographer Franco Fontana, astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, artist Alison Jackson, architect Michele De Lucchi and musician Michael Nyman.

The space at Fondamenta Sant’Anna n° 994 is instead dedicated to portfolio reviews with Oliviero Toscani and the Fabrica team (by reservation, only for under 25s creatives). The space is also a real temporary store offering productions of Fabrica and the ex-‘fabricanti’, product and editorial lines, including the now unattainable numbers of the legendary Colors magazine.

Via Garibaldi n°1830

7 June
Live silk-screen printing with DoppioFondo

On Thursday, June 7 from 6 to 8pm, the space in Fondamenta Sant'Anna 994 will host a live silk-screen printing event, in collaboration with DoppioFondo, a fine art print studio and independent publishing house. The team of young creatives from Fabrica will customize, even at the request of the public, a series of objects - shopping bags, postcards, notebooks and posters - which will then be put on sale at the temporary store.
Free event, open to the public.

DoppioFondo is an arts and culture association founded in Venice in 2014 organizing workshops, artist-in-residence programmes and art projects. Among them, Edizioni DoppioFondo, a project that aims to support the artists in the realization of their own book and self-made printed material, interpreting them as the expression of a personal work or as the final result of an artistic partnership and creative process. The goal is to promote books in a contemporary context, highlighting the importance of tradition-inspired printmaking techniques. DoppioFondo’s books are hand-printed in limited edition and use non-toxic tradition-inspired techniques. 

12 June
Portfolio review with Oliviero Toscani

On Tuesday 12 June from 3:30pm Oliviero Toscani will be at Fondamenta Sant'Anna No. 994 for portfolio reviews.
The session is open to talented, curious, restless, ambitious, generous, free-thinking under 25s with their hearts in their hands. Bring your work, your tools, your imagination and ability to get involved.
By reservation only at press@fabrica.it
