Weaving the Sea
Craftsmen and Designers from Across the Mediterranean Collaborate
24 November – 5 December 2015
Exhibition opening on 24 November at 6pm
Monday – Friday: 10am to 8pm
Saturday: 9am to 12am
This exhibition is centered on the joint work of craftsmen and designers from the Southern and Northern shores of the Mediterranean, creating a common product and launching the premises of cultural cooperation at a time where this region is rocked by violence, death and uprooting.
Through this exhibition, we intend to present the quality of craftsmen and designers of Mediterranean cities and hence contributing to improving their products and launch a series of cooperation between the craftsmen and designers of the partner cities: Athens, Florence-Palermo, Hebron, Tunis, Valencia, and Beirut.
Twelve unique pieces jointly produced by a designer of one of the cities and a craftsman of another will be the core of the exhibition. Short movies documenting these collaborations will explain and enhance the uniqueness of these twelve productions. Moreover, a selection of objects representing the traditional craftsmanship as well as innovative contemporary designs of each city will surround and complete the whole.
