Drap-Art’14. International Festival of Recycling Art of Catalonia will be held at the CCCB and nearby public spaces from the 19th of December 2014 to the 4th of January 2015. The activities and the fair will take place the weekend of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of January.
Just like the last edition, Drap-Art’14 will be developed in eight modalities to show us the possibilities of creative recycling: group exhibitions of art and designer objects made from recyclable materials, interventions in public space, a space for thought and discussion, the traditional art & design market, participative workshops, performances, audiovisuals and environmental cinema.
Drap-Art’14 looks for a balance between the participation of national and international artists; between emerging and consolidated artists, in order to promote the interchange between countries and generations. For this reason, as well as the artists, musicians, workshop conductors, designers, conference holders and audiovisual creators selected by the open call for artists, the festival will include the participation of invited artists, selected in collaboration with specialised organisations, galleries and independent curators.
As a special incentive, Drap-Art’14 will include for the 6th year running the Residu’Art Award, awarded by the HERA group, in the categories “Emerging Artist” and “Professional Artist”.
Drap-Art’14 is expected to receive about 10.000 visitors and to invite more than 150 artists, musicians, workshop conductors, designers, conference holders and audiovisual creators.
Among the already confirmed special guests, we would like to mention the Austrian artist Klaus Pichler and his project "Thirty Percent" dealing with the waste of food in the Western world, whose participation was made possible by the support of the Austrian Cultural Forum.
