282 Rome-based artists participate in third edition of Rome Art Week.The third edition of Rome Art Week (RAW), the contemporary art festival of free cultural events in Roman galleries and studios, takes place across the capital from 22-27 October.
There are 154 participating galleries, academies and cultural institutions, 321 artists hosting studio visits or related art events, with 30 curators and 400 special events around Rome.
This year the programme is organised according to districts, allowing RAW fans to attend multiple events in the same general area. Another novelty is the publication, in English and Italian, of a directory of 120 galleries associated with RAW.
Many of the participating artists have contributed covers to Wanted in Rome over the years, including Jacopo Benci, Elvio Chiricozzi, Primarosa Cesarini Sforza, Lisa Fedich, Giancarlino, Stefano Maria Girardi, Gio Pistone, Salvatore Pupillo, Georgina Spengler and Silvia Stucky.
RAW is a collaborative, independent and non-profit venture which has the support of the city of Rome and the Lazio Region. For full details, in English, see RAW website or Facebook page.
