Incubating the Modern Designer
Established in 1994 in Treviso, Italy as Benetton’s communication research center, Fabrica is not a school or an advertising agency. Fabrica is an applied creative laboratory, a talent incubator, and a studio at which young modern artists from around the world develop innovative projects and explore new directions in a myriad of communication avenues. These artist-experimenters are accompanied along their research path by leading figures in art and communication, blurring the boundaries of culture and language and addressing a wide variety of social causes and disciplines.

This event is free! Tickets are required, click here or visit Parking is available for $5 in the museum garage, parking is free for museum members.
