Today is the opening of an art exhibition that I helped in organizing as part of my collaboration with Drap Art, an NGO that promotes creative recycling in its many facets since 1995:
Opening, Thursday the 20th of May at 20h.
The exhibition is open to the public from the 21st of May to the 26th of June, 2010
Fish is a collective exhibition that displays works by Orson Buch (Paris, 1967), Ptolemy Elrington (Brighton, 1965) y Xavi Molina (Barcelona, 1963). The exhibition, organized and conceived by Drap-Art, a non-profit organization dedicated since 1995 to promote recycling, brings together an unusual trio of artists whose work is generated from the use of waste materials.
The concept, around which FISH is structured, arises from the fascination with animals, in particular fish that this group of artists and Drap-Art share.
The use of the image of ‘fish’ made by the Drap-Art Association, as a graphic icon of the communication campaigns of the editions of 2007, 2008 and 2009 of the International Recycling Art Festival of Catalonia makes its attraction to this aquatic being obvious. And the individual trajectories of each one of the participating artists reflect the important role they confer to this figure.
