AFTAB, Association Française pour le Tournage d’Art sur Bois
(Art Woodturning Association of France)
• Encapsulates the six wildly creative days of the biennial collaborative
art retreat in Provence, France
• Offers insights on why collaborative work is a valuable source of energy in
today’s artistic world
• Galleries fight to outbid each other at the final day’s auction
of the mixed-media artworks
Every two years, 50 to 60 top artists in all mediums travel to the tiny town of
Aiguines in Provence, France, and spend six days and nights collaborating,
cross-pollinating ideas, and trying out mediums they’ve never used before. In
these pages, learn about this valued source of energy in today’s artistic world:
the collaborative creativity seminar. Short texts by participants enhance over
275 gorgeous photos of artists in the process of collaborating, as well as the
resultingmasterful artworks. See how the artists created, in those six days, a total
of 176 gallery-quality pieces by joining together acrossmediums—for instance,
a woodturner, a glassblower, and a weaver working together on a project. This
view inside the Aiguines event offers inspiration for artists and art organizations
to increase their work’s quality and their own vision’s scope.
AFTAB
, the national art woodturning association of France, promotes
woodturning as a fine craft. Through forums and programs like the popular
biennial collaborative event “L’Art et la Matière,” AFTAB works to connect
and inspire artists.
