From 11 May to 24 November Fabrica will be in Venice with the exhibition “Fabrica/Wanted Creativity”, which is part of the program of the Ospedaletto Con/temporaneo project.
The exhibition, hosted in the Ospedaletto courtyard, consists of 60 portraits taken during “Benetton Race”, a project by Fabrica for United Colors of Benetton that touched various towns including Paris, London and Milan and that will soon land in Istanbul and Moscow. The goal is to build a sort of visual map of the population of the cities involved, to discover the different morphologies, represent the expressions, the physical, somatic, social and cultural characteristics of humanity.
The exhibition is also an outpost of Fabrica’s constant search for new talents: curious, restless, ambitious, generous, free-thinking creatives under 25, with their hearts in their hands.
Portfolio days will be periodically organized and dates will be announced shortly.
Founded in 1994 from a vision of Luciano Benetton and Oliviero Toscani, Fabrica is based in Treviso, in a magical architectural space restored and expanded by the Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
With an approach based on learning by doing, Fabrica welcomes talents who experience contemporary communication through constant cross-pollination between different disciplines, such as photography, video, graphics, design, writing, music and digital.
Fabrica also organizes a continuous cycle of workshops, conferences and experiences where the world of art, culture and research meet to develop new ideas. Internationally renowned architects, musicians, historians, designers, artists, interaction designers, art directors and sociologists collaborate with Fabrica.
