Fabrica Frame: Sedition x Fabrica

On 11 December, eight emerging artists currently working at Fabrica launched Fabrica Frame, a new collection of digital artworks on Sedition. The launch marks the beginning of a new collaboration between Fabrica and Sedition, where each year artists from around the world taking part in the Fabrica Residency will have the opportunity to launch artworks developed as part of their research on Sedition, the leading platform for the display of art in digital formats. This collaboration positions the work of emerging artists in front of a global audience, creates links between artists and collectors, fosters discussion around digital media, and is a presentation platform for the participating artists.

The collection features eight screen-based still and video works by artists working as part of the Fabrica creative hub in Treviso, Italy. The featured artists are Alessandro Niro, Diego Gil De Biedma, Guilherme Vieira, Harry Grundy, Lara Lussheimer, Madalena Silva Carlos, Sarah Elawad and Zhang Zhan.

The collection launch took place during Merry Fabrica, the annual Christmas market at Fabrica where innovative makers, artists and designers present their work. This year’s Merry Fabrica took place online and included a series of live Instagram talks and a discussion event on the theme of the future of creative industries. Merry Fabrica ran from 1 - 23 December 2020.

About Fabrica

Based in Treviso, Italy, the centre takes a Renaissance-inspired, learning-by-doing approach, where selected international creative talents under 25 can experiment with contemporary, interdisciplinary communication in a space of magical architecture restored and augmented by Tadao Ando.

Among others, Fabrica has hosted the writer Roberto Saviano, the photographer Martin Parr, the designer Patricia Urquiola, the architect Michele De Lucchi, the astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, the musician Michael Nyman, the artist Erik Kessels, the futurologist Bruce Sterling and the art critic Vittorio Sgarbi.
