After 14 years of promoting contemporary arts in the Sibiu area, ICon Arts conquers new ground and becomes ICon Arts Transilvania. Sighișoara, Sibiu, Biertan, Richiș, Alma Vii, Mălâncrav and other towns/Saxon villages will be our hosts during the ICon Arts Festival and Academy. All the events will take place between the 19th and the 30th of July.
“Through ICon Arts Transilvania we wish to show contemporary arts as an expression of tradition intertwined with avantgarde, of old crafts merged with new technologies.
We will work with different communities ( artists, visitora, locals) and we will challemge them to interact with each other, to expore each other’s world, to find joy in what each has to offer. For this we chose a few villages from Transylvania, one of the most authentic regions of Europe, which have a new breath of life in them. Here, during the Festival and the Academy, we will coordonate special events in partnership with Mihai Eminescu Trust and Experience Transylvania. The Sibiu concerts will be held this year too, but it would give us great pleasure if the Sibiu community will visit us in Richis, Alma Vii, Mălâncrav where they will experience something different and, we hope, joyful.”
