Etched Dialogues - The art of signs between Padova and Japan

 Recently our group Printsaurus have a strong connection with artists in Padova. Emilio Baracco is a representative of a small but important group of print artists whose name is 10 INCISORI PADOVANI. He proposed that we would organize a big exchage exhibition by 10 INCISORI PADOVANI and Printsaurus.
  Last summer in 2010 we 20 members of Printsaurus organized a big project with them in JAPAN. Emilio Baracco, Giuseppe Polisca and Debora Antonello came to present openings. There were three exhibitions. First one was a exhibition in Gunma prefecture. Three Italian artists could make a good relationship with good artists in Gunma. Main project was held at three gallerys in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. We showed all works. It could get a big success.
  The third one was a group exhibition in B Gallery, Ikebukuro. There was a small concert by Italian songs and a workshop by Debora and Giuseppe. You can see them in our website.
  From 29 April to 5 June 2011 there is a big project in Padova. It's organized by 10 INCISORI PADOVANI. It's held in Altinate Culture Center the most important culture center in Padova. It's sponsored by Padova City Gouvernment. They make a beautiful catalogue. It is not only catalogue for the exhibition but also a art book which is sold in book stores.
  I think these projects are a big fruit, of course. And also it is a big start for our friendship. Please look forward to our next project.
