AIMC Mosaic in the Contemporary World at the Thadea Palace Spilimbergo - May 2016
The XV Congress of the International Association of Contemporary Mosaicists (AIMC) organized by the Mosaic School of Friuli is a special event, unique in the history of AIMV congresses. It is more than just a simple conference, because of the creative ideas which come, from many parts of the world, to be presented and faced in the place where mosaic is taught.
For the first time, the synergy of two historic organizations, which have been working in the field of mosaic, intersect and merge for the realization of an international cultural meeting. On one part there stands the AIMC and on the other part, the Mosaic School of Friuli, the first school established in the '30s to teach mosaic art. A special exhibition of mosaic works of the AIMC members took place in the prestigious Palazzo Tadea, where a plethora of materials were presented which characterize mosaic art. Above all, the mosaic pieces displayed highlighted the poetic, philosophical and technical concepts which constitute today's mosaic language, influenced by divers cultures and traditions.
