“When you start drawing you go to places you have never been” – Peter Rich
Artissima, in collaboration with Moleskine, the brand of the legendary notebooks of artists and intellectuals of the last two centuries, has organised Drawing the Invisible, a new special project created for the 25th edition of the fair, and coordinated by the artist Marzia Migliora.
Drawing the Invisible is an educational project that will invade all the spaces of the fair, a series of mobile and performative drawing lessons open to students of art academies in Piedmont and Lombardy, selected by means of an open call.
The project stems from Marzia Migliora’s desire to delve into and portray the process that is concealed behind the work of art: the invisible aspect that remains concealed behind a sculpture, a performance or a painting. Through drawing, the technique with which children begin to construct a relationship with the physical world around them, the artist and the students will attempt to reveal and narrate the creative process, taking advantage of the unique, personal style of each participant, in order to gather new impulses, visions and works.
With Drawing the Invisible, Artissima and Moleskine create an educational project inside the fair that offers young students the possibility of interacting with a great artist, in a direct experience of creation of contemporary art.
Drawing the Invisible looks forward to seeing you at Artissima on the following schedule:
Friday 2 (3pm – 5pm) and Saturday 3 (3pm – 5pm)
