Irish artist Conor Harrington is just back from his 9 day stay in Southern Italy, the location for this years Fame Festival.
The Fame Festival is organized by Italian based print house Studio Chromie and is beginning to look like a fantastic show not to be missed. Pictured above is one of the pieces Conor painted outside for the event. I think you will all agree with us that this awesome piece has set the bar very high already for the work we can expect to see in September. The line up of artists taking part this year is very impressive and also include the following:
Erica il Cane (Ita) / Judith Supine (Usa) / David Ellis (Usa) / Word to Mother (Uk) / Sam3 (Spain) / Blu (Italy) / Jr (France) / Vhils (Portugal) / Conor Harrington (Ireland) / Lucy Mclauchlan (Uk) / Mark Jenkins (Usa) / Dolk (Norway) / Clio (Italy) / Slinkachu (Uk) / Dem (Italy) / Will Barras (Uk) / Tuono Pettinato (Italy) / Paper Resistance (Italy)
Between June and September Studio Chromie plans to host the artists for variable length of time (from 1 to 4 weeks) in a small Italian centre, Grottaglie. While there they will be offered the cooperation of the local artisans for the production of pottery works and limited edition prints. The invited artists will also have several walls/building located around the city at the disposal for painting and at the end of their stay, everything created, including new original artworks, screenprints and ceramic pieces made with the collaboration of local artisans will be showcased in a final group show.
The final show will take place in one of the most ancient ceramics workshop of the area. The opening is set to be on the 19th of September with a preview party on the 18th.
More info on the show and directions on how to get there are over on the Fame Festival website.
