Drap-Art International Artistic Recycling Festival
December 9, 2015
Drap-Art is a non-profit organization created in Barcelona in 1995 aiming to promote creative recycling through the organization of events, workshops, markets and exhibitions all around the world. The artists of this organization create their work using garbage, found objects or damaged items as material and turn them into pieces of art.
The Grand Opening of 2015 Drap-Art International Artistic Recycling Festival will take place on December the 17th at Barcelona Contemporary Culture Center (CCCB), and activities and fairs will be organized on December 18th, 19th and 20th, and January 2nd and 3rd, respectively for Christmas and Three Kings day.
Drap-Art ’15 will consist in 8 different activities to enable the public to discover the possibilities of creative recycling: collective exhibitions of art made out of recyclable materials, interventions in public space, a space for thought and discussion, art & design market, participative workshops, performances, audiovisual sessions and environmental cinema.
Both national and international artists will take part in the event, as well as emerging and established ones, to promote the communication between countries and generations and in this way create a mutual influence and maybe enrich everyone’s art.
From December the 18th to January the 3rd, Barcelona Contemporary Culture Center (CCCB) will host the 15th Collective Drap-Art exhibition (exposición Colectiva Drap-Art’15).
Different artists will exhibit their work, such as David Martín or Gregor Sailor or Tono Carbajo with his collection called Expulsados, dedicated to reflect about gentrification.
