Culture Vultures presents
pOp uP gallery Al-Zahra - June 2013
Every June a pOp uP gallery emerges in the heart of Fez’ ancient medina. This multi-faceted, bustling but tiny hanout (shop) presents exhibitions, local and international artists and show cases idiosyncratic happenings that feed the creative vitality and cultural noise of the immediate surroundings. Run by Jess Stephens, visual artist and creator of Culture Vultures, the Pop up space becomes more like a mini-art center, every season. While artists are invited to participate, the community are enticed. C.V.’s Pop Up conjures up think tank, meeting point, and cultural hub that contributes to the vibrancy and every day spectacle of the old medina, the soul of Fez.
2013’s Pop up gallery will complement the Fez Festivals curated theme of Al Andaluz by presenting works influenced by a intercultural portfolio of artists and creations that embrace coexistence. The program will include poetry readings, music happenings, spontaneity, artisan/artist colaborations,2D art works and culture from every corner, with a contemporary slant on the Cordobian palace of 1000 years ago, Madinat al-Zahra.
Artists call out. Artists are invited to submit proposals for recitals, presentations, performances, talks, film screenings, micro concerts or exhibiting.
Deadline for applications May 1st.
