Artists, designers and architects delve into the practice of the inappropriate, taking over others’ territories and examining the angles between habit and imposture to reach other perspectives.
The FADfest 2015 wants to explore these practices in the Fuera de lugar (Out of Place) exhibition, a collective and international show presenting works and projects that take the practice of displacement and the inappropriate as methods for pointing out unusual and unexpected perspectives for analysis and action.
The Out of Place exhibition is the result of the work undertaken by the curator team headed by Rosa Pera and comprised of herself and five professionals representing the different disciplines of the FAD: Pau de Solà Morales, Ana Domínguez Siemens, Albert Martínez López-Amor, Jesús-Ángel Prieto and Juan Vidal. The team has worked to transversally tackle the “out of place” concept proposed by Pera in contemporary creative practice.
The inauguration of Out of Place and The Best Design of the Year, the annual exhibition of the shortlisted projects in the prizes awarded by the FAD, will be the green light for the start of the FADfest 2015, which in its inaugural session will boast a programme of lectures, dialogues and talks on the “out of place” theme.
The FADfest 2015 will be held from 29 June to 5 July, the week which will see the presentation of the prizes awarded by the FAD this year: FAD Awards to Architecture 2015, Laus Awards to Graphic Design and Visual Communication 2015 and MODAFAD Awards. The Delta Awards to Industrial Design, the ART-FAD Awards to Art and Craft and the City to City FAD Award become biannual and will be presented next year.
