The second edition of ArtDate is articulated in several days – Friday 1, Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 June 2012 – to increase the value of individual events and involve different audiences, thanks to the moltiplication of opening times and events.
For the occasion, The Blank has produced a passport of art that, in addition to the day’s program, has a number of pages that can be marked with the “art stamp”. Each member taking part in the event has worked with an artist to create an artistic stamp. During the days of ArtDate, participation to the events and visits to the places allow visitors to stamp their passport, that becomes a true artwork.
During the three days, public is also given the opportunity to visit private collections and artists’ studios, to understand and investigate the most hidden art sides: the private one of collectors and the intimate one of artistic creation.
