CreArt AiR project Car Art festival
id11 selected 8 professional artists from the CreArt network to create site-specific artwork for the Car Art festival in Delft, The Netherlands. CreArt is a collaborative venture between 13 European cities: Arad (Romania), Kaunas (Lithuania), Genoa (Italy), Delft (The Netherlands), Harghita County (Romania), Zagreb (Croatia), Valladolid (Spain), Aveiro (Portugal), Linz (Austria), Kristiansand (Norway), Lecce (Italy), Pardubice (Czech Republic) and Vilnius (Lithuania).

The selected artists will be able to start working on the 15th of June and work towards the deadline of the Car Art festival in the weekend of 8, 9 and 10 August 2014 at the location of the old glue factory Lijm & Cultuur in Delft. Car Art is a multidisciplinary festival, where cars or car parts are, in its most literal or abstract form, the source of inspiration. For 2 months the artists will work on- and present their projects at Lijm & Cultuur in Delft. Work in progress can be seen by visitors during the regular opening hours of Lijm & Cultuur. Every Friday in June and July from 17:00-19:00 hrs. one of the artists will present his or her work at the artist talk bij_wijze_van_SPREKEN in an informal setting for discussion. The final presentation of the work takes place at the Car Art festival in the weekend of 8, 9 and 10 August 2014.
