L’ÉTÉ DU DESSIN #3
WeDraw is an annual summer drawing program for artists, happening from August 22nd till September 2nd in Marseille, France. It is organised by the art platform LOOK&LISTEN, offering context for artists: real-life deadlines, printed publications, online resources and a growing community. We provide feedback, sharing information, creating opportunities and moving forward together.
Also called l’Été du dessin 2019, this 3rd edition will consist of:
a week residency with a final group exhibition
a guided visit to Marseille’s major art-fairs
life-access to an online resources page
an ongoing, online-based feedback group
The residency takes place in the context of La rentrée de l'art contemporain. During the weekend of August 30 - September 1st, Marseille welcomes a large community of international galleries and artists. The local art scene offers an exclusive variety of exhibitions and events, including the two large art-fairs Art-O-Rama and PARÉIDOLIE. WeDraw provides an opportunity to exhibit as part of this rich program.
— WORK WEEK —
The work week will take place at the Friche la Belle de Mai, a vibrant, cultural, urban site offering space for creativity and innovation. La Friche is both a work-space for artists and creatives as well as cultural dissemination and events. With over 400,000 visitors a year, it is a multi-faceted public space with 2400 m2 of exhibition space, a 8000 m2 roof terrace, shared gardens, a bookshop, and much more.
Our day will be divided to these three main parts:
Collective work-time with the artist Yifat Gat,
or meetings with other professionals
Independent work-time on one’s own or in groups
Daily exchange with the curator Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge
founder of the Drawing Hub, Berlin.
— EXHIBITION OPENING —
The final exhibition will be held at Atelier (S)eruse, an artist-run space in the heart of the city, walking distance from both art-fairs, galleries and other venues. Together with the artists and Jan-Philipp Fruehsorge, we will curate and showcase the work created during the residency. Artists may take their work on September 2nd.
