'PAG' (Premio Antonio Giordano) is an urban art festival aimed at promoting all forms of visual arts (painting, sculpture, photography, architecture). Focusing on contemporary art languages, PAG continues the research and experimentation activities carried out by the artist Antonio Giordano, a multifaceted exponent of transavantgarde movement (painter, sculptor and photographer) dead in 2013. PAG is promotion and divulgation of visual art in the urban space, considered as the privileged place for the discussion and the knowledge exchange.
PAG selects artists from the urban art scene at national and international levels. The event is organized by “ACAG” (Associazione Culturale Antonio Giordano), under the support of town council of Santa Croce di Magliano (Italy); the selection of most suitable spaces (such as abandoned buildings and the most significant places of urban centre) and the art direction are managed by ACAG; special attention is paid to the selection of artists, namely of their artistic language, differing in terms of culture and formation, but also in terms of painting technique. The choice is based on the most suitable artistic language for the character of places where the intervention is carried out.
This third edition will host five artists (Francisco Bosoletti, Camilla Falsini, Giulio Vesprini, Guerrilla Spam and Zed1) who will make artworks on the walls of private and public buildings; the artists will follow one another, starting from June 25 until the end of July. The event will see the realization of urban art interventions on five walls, but also on small facades and doors and a workshop of poster art, open to students, artists and illustrators.
