Tecnargilla, the world´s biggest ceramics industry trade show, set to take place in Rimini from 26 to 30 September 2016, will host a selection of works from the International Ceramics Museum in Faenza (MIC) as part of the Ceramic Bang exhibition, curated by architects Azzolini-Tinuper.
The works, chosen from the Premio Faenza collection, tell the story of ceramic art over the last 40 years.
´We´ve selected designer pieces from the greatest Italian talents (Mari, Sottsass, La Pietra)´ explains Claudia Casali, Director of MIC Faenza – ´alongside artists who have journeyed into the field of ceramic sculpture, to provide insight into the ceramic language of recent decades, looking at innovation in the twenty-first century with 3D printers and interactive research´.
