FAAS 5

Every two years since 2008, the Fair of Alternative Art in Sudbury (FAAS) has occupied and transformed a public space in the nickel city’s downtown. Invited artists are challenged to complete new works over the course of the festival and according to each edition’s concept and theme.

For the fifth FAAS, artists will occupy a parking lot in the heart Downtown Sudbury. Each artist will work with a shelter, built with construction materials, that fits inside an individual parking space.

The FAAS’ ephemeral nature evokes all that is magical, fantastic, and surreal. Installation and performance art appears in a public space and disappears in a very short time. It is within this context that FAAS 5 artists will be invited to create a singular space where they will put their creativity to the test on the largest possible stage: the Universe.

Thirty new works of art will emerge, as if by some enchantment, before the community’s eyes. Members of the public are encouraged to follow the creative process closely. The event will conclude with the unveiling of the finished installations and an evening of performance under the FAAS’ Big Top.

With a wink and a nod to the concept, and a reference to the infamous magical incantation, the GNO has nicknamed the 5th FAAS “Abricadabri” (abri being the French word for shelter).

Abricadabri, to create an intimate space and invite everyone over.
Abricadabri, a public refuge for arts and for artists.
Abricadabri, the Fifth Fair of Alternative Art in Sudbury.
