FOC, a programme of fiesta, satire, gunpowder and more design
After being selected as the global epicentre of design, Valencia was in no doubt that it would benefit from this unique opportunity to show the industry and tradition that have made it famous throughout the world. And if there is one event for which Valencia is recognized beyond its borders, it is the Fallas, the most important tourist attraction in the region. For this reason, numerous events will be held during the month of March that will reflect with leading Fallas figures about their past, present and future.
The FOC programme began on 1 March with the presentation at the Centre del Carme Cultura Contemporània (CCCC) of the paper publication “FOC, designing fire”, by José Francisco Carsi Navarro, a work that proposes making Valencia the capital of fire festivities, generating connections with other celebrations via their shared synergies.
On 3 March, the doors of Las Naves opened to the exhibition “Procés visual”, which shows the creative process of the urban artist Dulk. The exhibition, which can be visited until 13 May, pays special attention to the aspect of innovation that connects the world of the fallas and creativity with the digital world. To this end, 3D images of the fallas are projected, together with video-artistic projections on the creation process and a space for interaction open to all attendees.
