CASA FALCONIERI, CONTEMPORARY ENGRAVING AT ART MADRID'18 ... AND AWARD!
Feb 11, 2018
Casa Falconieri, institution specializing in the research of contemporary engraving, will be at Art Madrid with a selection of artists in a true stamping marathon. And they bring a reward!
Founded in the late 80s in Cagliari (Sardinia) as a platform for experimentation and research, Casa Falconieri promotes the international diffusion of contemporary art, especially contemporary engraving and printing. They works with the main international research centers, national and private museums, with the national chalcography, with the Italian Ministry of Culture, the Museum of Fine Arts of Bilbao, National Calcography of Madrid, Estampa, Bologna Setup, Italian University and the Accademie di Belle Arti, and this year is one of the guests at Art Madrid'18.
Casa Falconieri visits the fair with a large group of Sardinian artists: Gabriella Locci, Roberto Puzzu, Antonio Mallus, Rosanna Rossi, Adelaide Lussu, Anna Saba, Alberto Marci, Veronica Paretta, Veronica Gambula, Andrea Spiga, Mauro Rombi, Paolo Marchi, P & B , Francesco Alpigiano, Vicenzo Grosso, Veronica Fadda, Angelino Fiori, Giovanna Secchi, Salvatore Ligios, Paola Dessy, and editions of Simonetta Castia. During the five days of the fair and continuously, these creators will make their work available to the public to teach, explain and help to know how the engraving technique works. A printing machinery that matches perfectly with the ideals of Casa Falconieri and its work of disseminating the work on paper. With them, with their work, they reflect the evolution of an art sector in continuous development and symbiosis with sister disciplines such as photography, the artist's book, the work on paper... with the ultimate desire to change the vision that many have on the graphic art and printmaking, an inexhaustible source of inspiration.
During the fair, the "Book of Artist - Casa Falconieri / Art Madrid" Award will be granted to one of the participating artists in this 13th edition. It is an artistic residence conceived as a 15-day experimentation workshop at Casa Falconieri Laboratory located in Sardinia, for the prize-winner to create graphic work or an artist's book. A trip to the cultural and artistic heritage of the area, a meeting point with other artists, each with its origins and its histories, to develop new projects together. It is about sharing experiences but also about carrying out a personal investigation on the transformations of the artistic creation sector, its relationship system, in search of new more sustainable and human methods.
A committee formed by professionals from Casa Falconieri and Art Madrid will choose the winner among the artists participating in the fair whose object or motive is the work on paper in its different forms. The award will be granted on Sunday 25th at 6pm, in the stand D1 of Casa Falconieri.
