NUG for Fame Festival 2011Juxtapoz // Saturday, 09 Jul 2011
It is getting closer to the time of year when artists from around the world convene in Grottaglie, Italy to paint walls throughout the city for Fame Festival. This are getting started, at least to get the word going, with NUG doing a video for the 2011 edition of Fame Festival, the fourth edition of Studiocromie’s summer festival.
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 25th of september, 2011.
