Poy Art Project

POY ART

The POY ART Project will take place during the weekends of August 2023.

Every weekend different artists will intervene with figurative, musical and literary arts, everyone will be able to witness the formation of the various artistic expressions.

THE PROJECT IN PILLS

In line with our associative principles we present the Poy Art Project which we hope will represent the initial spark of the Art Movement in Poggetello

The project was born through a dialogue between the association, some of its members and Antonio in art Ferro, currently the project’s artistic director. The aim is to reshape places, through a dialogue between art, history and tradition, where the urban space of the small Abruzzo village becomes a place where one can express oneself freely, an art gallery where the works are not confined to a public elite but reach more and more citizens, guiding them through a completely new artistic path in which the street becomes a museum. A rebirth of the Abruzzo village where art becomes part of our daily life. Process started several years ago by the president of our association Mario Gualandri aka FORME NUDE.
The same will be declined in three main areas:
  • Street art interventions
Curated by Carmine Foschino aka KORVO, who has the burden and honor of selecting the artists who will intervene on the places selected by the association together with our artistic director.
  • “Ovens” interventions
Curated by Salvatore Troiano aka SASI‘, to whom the idea of the ovens must be recognized, or rather the honor of having been able to reconcile tradition and art. In fact, the construction of ovens for the production of artistic bricks with which to build installations to be increased over the years by successive artists, thus resuming the ancient processing of the furnaces present in the village for the production of roof tiles, bricks and terracotta tiles.
  • Interventions Installation.
Supervised directly by our artistic director Antonio who will identify the artists who will intervene with their different means of expression in the streets and squares of the village.
  • Musical and Literary Interventions
Supervised directly by our president of the Mario association who will identify the artists who will intervene with their different means of expression in the streets and squares of the village.
