For the 7th edition of ArtDate the oratory of Longuelo becomes an evening meeting place and seat of a real Sagra dell’Arte. During the evening can be discovered the projects realized by protagonists of the Contemporary Art world such as Cory Arcangel, Marco Basta, Riccardo Beretta, Ethan Cook, Gabriele De Santis, Zak Kitnick, Andrea Mastrovito.
A barman serves three cocktails suggested by the artist Ryan Gander taken from his book “Artists’ cocktails”, compendium of recipes from more than 100 artists. “Explorers vs. Pioneers” by Aston Ernest, “A Long Monologue” by Vivi Enkyo, “A thinking hand’s bequest” by Ryan Gander are the selected drinks to taste during the evening.
The evening is one of the greatest moment of the Sagra dell’Arte. At the oratory of Longuelo, music, food, games, furniture and decoration typical of the sagra take artistic shapes. Protagonists of the art world such as Cory Arcangel, Marco Basta, Riccardo Beretta, Simone Berti, Gabriele De Santis, Zak Kitnick, Andrea Mastrovito, Jonathan Monk, Ryan Gander, Erik Saglia and Marinella Senatore realize unreleased artworks, moments of fun and reinterpretations of ancient folk rituals.
The artists create an unusual target shooting: darts have to be thrown to an artwork that becomes the prize. Key element of this typical game is the dart, which represents the Divine Justice into the traditional religious iconography.
Erik Saglia realizes a unique Wheel of Fortune, a traditional sagra game. The Wheel is available for the public to play and, at the same time, it’s the first prize of the game itself. The second and the third prize are respectively : an Arazzetto GQ by Riccardo Beretta and a xilography by Andrea Mastrovito.
