OPENING! CURA ART LAB

Here at CPiF we love hearing about new art spaces opening up in Florence. You won’t want to miss the CURA ART LAB Open Studio on June 9! Read on to learn more.

First, let’s get to know the duo behind this brand new co-working art space in the heart of Florence.

Pabliu Lucero, originally from Villa Carloz Paz, Cordoba, Argentina, has been guided by a life-long passion for painting, working and traveling throughout Latin America as a street artist and muralist. His art work reflects the influences of the cultures and individuals that have touched his life throughout his journeys and experiences. In 2014 while in Panama, he opened his own art studio, becoming intimately involved with “El Chorrillo’s” community, working with the young people developing educational programs which included painting, art and self-expression. Pabliu is currently based in Florence with his wife Eugenia Ingegno and their baby where he is the co-director of CURA ART LAB.

Eugenia Ingegno is an Italian jewelry maker and co-founder and co-director of CURA ART LAB. She received her degree in History and Conservation of Artistic Heritage with a focus on Ancient Byzantine Jewelry, studied Goldsmithing, Wax Modeling and Enameling graduating from Alchimia contemporary jewelry school in 2009. Her work is focused on the concepts of decoration and communication while exploring the anthropological meanings of jewelry. She has exhibited widely across Europe including: Inhorgenta, Munich, the Marzee International Graduation Show 2009, and multiple shows with Alternatives Gallery in Rome and Putti Gallery in Riga, Latvia. In 2010 she started the 1×1 Collective to promote contemporary jewelry in Italy and abroad, and in 2014 while in South America she began to develop educational and art therapy projects for children and for indigenous communities and organizations. In 2016 she she opened CURA ART LAB with Pabliu.

We got together with Pabliu and Eugenia to talk more about their vision for Cura Art Lab and for the contemporary art community in Florence.

CPIF: How would you describe your relationship with Florence? 

Pabliu and Eugenia: Florence is a city full of history and art which allows us to be constantly inspired. We are part of a new generation of young artists who have the need to create a new reality which can be adapted to our needs. Being immersed in a city with such a rich culture, we find ourselves on a path full of possibilities for emerging contemporary art. The contrast between new ways of living and the historical city enriches our relationship with the people and the city itself.

What is CURA ART LAB and where did the idea come from?

CURA is the first co-working art lab in Florence exclusively dedicated to visual and applied arts. At CURA we generate opportunities to create, starting with research and experimentation. It is a growing community for emerging artists where they find inspiration as well as the basic tools the need for their work. It was born from the need of creating a place where all kinds of art expressions could exist together. CURA creates a community in which artists from different disciplines work side by side and inspire each other, where they can work freely and experiment.

In your own art practices how important is collaboration with other artists and creative people? What do you look for in a potential creative collaborator?

In our experience collaboration with other artists is fundamental for the creation of  interesting relationships and new ideas. We seek to work with artists who have a mature vision as well as emerging artists to build a creative chain between the two. CURA also offers opportunities like workshops, exhibitions, and artistic trips in order to bring together artists at different points in their careers.

What can we expect to see at the inauguration of the space on June 9?

The inauguration will be an open studio event where all of our artists will be working. During the evening the resident artists in CURA as well as some invited artists will present their work, sharing their creative processes in real time. The main goal is to share our creative space with other artists, and to invite visitors into an artist’s reality for a moment.

 

Are there any other plans or projects coming up that you want to share with the group?

Yes! We have a calendar with different artistic activities going on everyday, open to every artist inside and outside CURA. We also have monthly workshops regarding specific artistic themes. In the future, we will develop an exhibition calendar in several places throughout Florence promoting our artists’ work.

CPiF: Associazione Culturale!

Associazione Culturale

Creative People in Florence is now a cultural association!

(Italiano sotto ↓)

It’s officially official! Over the past three years CPiF has quickly grown and flourished and with that so has the interest from outside institutions in our activities, events, and members. Being an official organization will help facilitate those relationships and offer more opportunities to our members and our community.

How will things change?
While our Facebook group, group aperitivi and other events will remain open to all as they are now, our current and future members will have the option of paying a small annual membership fee of 10 euro to join the cultural association. This will help support the running of CPiF and will allow us to create new opportunities for members to show their work, make contacts, and be involved in the creative community in Florence. As it has always been, membership is open to all artists, artisans, designers, performers, writers, scholars, and creative thinkers living in Florence or connected in some way to the city.
Soon, a new directory will also be added to our blog that will feature a careful selection of members of the cultural association who represent the very best of contemporary art and design in Florence. This will allow potential clients and collaborators to easily find members and and access their contact information all in one place.
Members will receive discounts on workshops run by CPiF (we have an awesome series coming up!), and we will also be working with local businesses to offer our members exclusive discounts reserved especially for CPiF–more news about that will be coming soon.

Our members are what make CPiF what it is–thank you all for your support!

If you would like to become an member of the cultural association, please get in touch, or drop by and see us at The Creative Collective in via di Mezzo 6r. creativepeopleinflorence@gmail.com

***

Creative People in Florence è finalmente un’Associazione Culturale!

Negli ultimi tre anni, parallelamente alla crescita di CPiF, l’interesse da parte delle istituzioni e di altre associazioni, verso le nostre attività e i nostri membri, è notevolmente aumentato.

Cosa cambia?

Considerando che il nostro gruppo Facebook, con i suoi eventi-aperitivo e tutte le sue attività peculiari, saranno aperti a tutti come sempre, i nostri membri avranno l’opzione di pagare una quota annuale di 10 euro per iscriversi definitivamente all’Associazione.

La tua quota di iscrizione ci aiuterà a sostenere l’andamento di CPiF e ci permetterà di creare nuove occasioni per i nostri membri, quali mostrare i propri lavori, fare contatti e far parte della comunità creativa di Firenze. Come sempre, il gruppo rimarrà aperto a tutti gli artisti, artigiani, designers, performers, musicisti, scrittori e creativi di tutti tipi che abitano a Firenze o che in qualche modo sono collegati alla città.

Aggiungeremo, a tal proposito, una nuova “rubrica” al sito che raccoglierà una selezione di membri dell’Associazione che rappresenterà il meglio delle arti contemporanee a Firenze. Il Member Directory permetterà a potenziali clienti o collaboratori di trovare e contattare più facilmente i nostri membri.

In più, mentre i membri avranno anche degli sconti esclusivi sui workshops gestiti da CPiF, noi collaboreremo attivamente con negozi, locali e istituzioni per offrire ulteriori agevolazioni. Altre informazioni seguiranno a breve.

I nostri membri sono la forza di CPiF–grazie infinite per il tuo sostegno!

Ti vuoi iscrivere al gruppo? Scrivici a creativepeopleinflorence@gmail.com, o vieni a trovarci in Via di Mezzo, 6r.

Opening Friday, October 16 at 7pm

Cartavetra, Via Maggio 64r

CPiF cannot wait for the opening of the exhibition Ruvidezze this Friday, October 16 at 7pm, which also marks the official inauguration of Cartavetra, a new art space in Via Maggio 64r.  After a major renovation, the space is ready to host shows, courses and workshops spanning a variety of art media.

Cartavetra seeks to carve out its niche as a unique space bridging contemporary and applied arts, with a special interest in book arts, paper, and narrative. We first learned about Cartavetra last year when we met illustrator (and founding member of the Cartavetra) Luna Colombini at one of our Creative Aperitivo events.  We later featured her in our Instagram takeover project.  Come out on Friday to meet Luna and the rest of the Cartavetra team, Brunella Baldi, Pietro Desirò, Valeria Castellani and Rosita D’Agrosa.

The artists participating in Ruvidezze are Elisa Biagini, Riccardo Biondi, Vincenzo Burlizzi, Francesco Chiacchio, Lyall Harris, Eriko Kito, Marco Lituani, Daniela Iride Murgia, Lisa Nocentini, Maurizio Olivotto, Arianna Papini, Stefano Ricci, Flavia Robalo, Gianna Scoino, and Antonello Silverini.  For more information, and to join the Facebook event, click here.

Opening hours:
Monday-Friday 15-19:30
Saturday 10-13 and 15-19:30
Second and third Sunday of the month

To learn more about the space, courses and upcoming events visit www.cartavetra.com
or email info@cartavetra.com

*****

Ruvidezze è la mostra collettiva che inaugura il rinnovato spazio dell’associazione Cartavetra, in via Maggio 64r, Firenze.

Elisa Biagini, Riccardo Biondi, Vincenzo Burlizzi, Francesco Chiacchio, Lyall Harris, Eriko Kito, Marco Lituani, Daniela Iride Murgia, Lisa Nocentini, Maurizio Olivotto, Arianna Papini, Stefano Ricci, Flavia Robalo, Gianna Scoino, Antonello Silverini si esprimono sul tema fondante della galleria, contribuendo a delinearne il gusto e le tendenze.

Usano l’llustrazione, la scultura, le arti grafiche, il ready made. Linguaggi liberi, talvolta borderline, sempre assolutamente personali.

Pur inserendosi in una zona brulicante di arte e gallerie, Cartavetra cerca di ritagliarsi un suo spazio personale, ponendosi come ponte tra il contemporaneo e le arti applicate, mantenendo un occhio di riguardo per il libro, la carta e la narrazione.

Vernissage venerdì 16 ottobre alle ore 19, e sarà visitabile da lunedì a venerdì dalle 15 alle 19,30, sabato in orario 10-13/15-19,30 e la seconda e terza domenica del mese.

We are excited to announce that have redesigned and relaunched the CPiF Member Directory!

The purpose of the CPiF Directory is to offer a powerful and easy-to-use database of Creative People members who represent top-notch quality in their field of expertise.  In this way, fellow members as well as potential clients are able to connect with the right collaborators for their creative projects.

The directory will appear on the Creative People in Florence site, and we will regularly share it on our other social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest), as well as refer people to it when they post on our Facebook group or contact us directly.  We also actively work with art and design schools, tour companies, bloggers, other media outlets, and creative associations to spread the word about Creative People in Florence and our members. Each listed member will also be able to publish their own events on the CPiF site, and be featured in the CPiF newsletter, and in the CPiF Pinterest gallery, which will also be launched in September.

@creativeepopleinflorence

Inclusion in the directory is based on a selection process following these criteria:

Membership in Creative People in Florence.  Our interest is in promoting our members and spreading the word about contemporary art and design in Florence.

Quality. We want Creative People in Florence to by synonymous with quality, and therefore membership in the directory depends on certain standards of expertise and innovation, and a willingness to collaborate with other members.

Reliability.  CPiF represents you, and in turn you represent CPiF.  This means we expect to support each other, and project a positive and proactive approach to collaboration with other creatives and potential clients.

In order to get the directory project off the ground and keep it running, we are asking for an annual contribution of 20 euro from all people listed in the directory.  Every year you will have the option to renew your membership in the directory.

To be considered for inclusion in the directory please complete the following form. We will contact you for further information if necessary.

Siamo lieti di comunicarvi abbiamo rilanciato il Member Directory di Creative People in Florence!

L’obiettivo della Directory, ovvero la rubrica dei nostri membri, è quello di creare un potente database facile da usare, che permette sia ai membri di CPiF che ai futuri clienti e collaboratori di trovarsi e contattarsi agevolmente.

La Directory sarà inserita nel sito di Creative People in Florence in modo che la possiamo regolarmente condividere sui social network (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, e Pinterest) e con le persone che ci seguono.  Inoltre la useremo come riferimento quando veniamo contattati da persone interessate al nostro gruppo, come spesso succede. Non mancherà poi la collaborazione con scuole di arte e design, tour operators, bloggers, media vari e associazioni creative per spargere il più possibile la voce sui nostri membri.

Ogni membro che farà parte della Directory avrà in più un articolo dedicato all’interno della newsletter di CPiF, ma anche farà parte della nostra galleria di Pinterest che verrà lanciata contemporaneamente con la rubrica.

L’inserimento nella Directory si basa su una procedura di selezione secondo le seguenti categorie:

-Appartenenza a Creative People in Florence.  Il nostro scopo è promuovere i nostri membri e spargere la voce sull’arte e design contemporanei a Firenze.

-Qualità. Vogliamo che CPiF sia sinonimo di qualità, e di conseguenza è fondamentale avere certi standard di competenza e innovazione, oltre alla volontà di collaborare con altri membri.

-Affidabilità.  CPiF ti rappresenta e tu rappresenti CPiF.  Questo vuole dire che ci aspettiamo che tu mostri un atteggiamento positivo e propositivo verso la collaborazione con altri creativi e potenziali clienti.

Per permetterci di lanciare il progetto e di mantenerlo, chiediamo un contributo annuale di 20 euro. Ogni anno, poi, avrai la possibilità di rinnovare la partecipazione alla Directory.

Per fare la domanda di inserimento, compila il modulo. Ti contatteremo per ulteriori informazioni se necessario.

Every week we’ll pass the account to a different member of the group who will post at least one image per day, for a week.  Show us what you’re working on, what you notice, what you’re looking at…whatever.  If you already have an Instagram account of your own, we ask that you don’t simply repost your own photos, but that you turn your eye towards a new theme, a new project—something to share with your fellow Creative People.  When your week is over you can nominate someone to take over, or you can pass the job back to us and we’ll choose.  Want to play? Stay tuned to find out who is up first! Our instagrammers so far…
