6 October – 13 November 2006
Established in 1994 on the initiative of Luciano Benetton and Oliviero Toscani, Fabrica is a communications research centre whose range of activities extends from graphic design to cinema, taking in industrial design, writing, interactive media, photography and music on the way.
Housed in a strikingly simple and rigorous building by Tadao Ando, in Treviso, Italy, it is a unique
institution, led by an international team, that encourages the creative development of selected young professionals from all over the world, who are granted a one-year scholarship to work on the projects they submit.
Responsible for many media campaigns for major organisations (Reporters Sans Frontières, World Health Organisation) this private-sector research centre encourages cultural cross-fertilisation and a global consciousness in all its fields of activity. Conceived by the Centre Pompidou, this exhibition
presents a number of the projects developed at Treviso.
Accompanied by a film programme and a series of musical performances, the exhibition offers an opportunity to discover the scope of Fabrica's work, which is redefining the frontiers between art and communications.
