This spring, we were invited by our friend Elena to be contestants at the First Fair of Contemporary Art – Paratissima, Skopje. Its first edition in Skopje took place in the Youth Cultural Center from the 13th to the 15th of June. During these three days, ninety creative young people presented their art work not only through exhibitions, but also through musical concerts (performances by musicians from Italy and Macedonia), design and jewelry, video projections, workshops, presentations and artistic performances.
The Missy Onion Saturday matinee was accompanied by an amazingly cool electro-swing DJ set, for which we have Michelangelo Fornaro, Gianmaria Vernetti and Fabio Mendolicchio to thank for.
Having shared this special day with all the beautiful people who were part of this wonderful event, we couldn’t just keep it to ourselves and not share it with you as well.
