Drap-Art’15. International Festival of Recycling Art of Catalonia will celebrate its opening on the 17th December at the CCCB and nearby public spaces and will be open to the public from the 18th December 2015 to the 3rd January, 2016. The activities and the fair will take place on the weekends of Xmas (18th, 19th and 20th December) and Three Kings (2nd and 3rd January).
Just like the last edition, Drap-Art’15 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’15 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’15 will include for the 7th year running the Residu’Art Award, awarded by the HERA group, in the categories “Emerging Artist” and “Professional Artist”.
Drap-Art’15 is expected to receive about 10.000 visitors and to invite more than 150 artists, musicians, workshop conductors, designers, conference holders and audiovisual creators.
