Two artists from Iceland, along with one Philadelphia artist, are learning about digital fabrication at makerspace NextFab this week.
The artists are in town because their work will be shown as part of a Philagrafika exhibit called Due North, opening this January at the Crane Arts Icebox Project Space in Kensington. The exhibit will feature video and prints inspired by the North by artists from both Iceland and Philadelphia. After their mini-residency at NextFab, the visiting artists will use what they learned to create a piece for exhibit.
See a video preview of the January exhibition above, as well as photos from the artists’ week at NextFab so far. Check out NextFab’s Facebook for more photos.
