The Disobedient - Italy

INTERNATIONAL MAIL ART PROJECT

The disobedient
 
Tribute to six great artists of art history
 
In the book "Le disobedient" published by Mondadori / le Contrails, writer Elisabetta Rasy tells the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, Elisabeth Vigee le Brun, Berthe Morisot, Suzanne Valadon, Charlotte Salomon, Frida Kalo. Six different women, from different period of history, of family situation, and in character. United however by talent and the will not to bend to the rules imposed by the society of their time, rules penalising and marginalising women. In the portraits that Elisabetta Rasy draws of each of them, what emerges is the strength and passion with which they fought and won hard battles to establish themselves. Despite bans, obligations, misunderstandings and prejudices. The work of these artists has forever changedthe place of the woman in the world of art.

You are kindly invited to send your work to pay tribute to these six extraordinary women and artists who, as Elisabetta Rasy writes, armed with a special quality of the soul, counter images of their fragility and counter the assaults of life.

Amazon - Ruggero Maggi - Italy



At 1979, after some travels to the South American Forest I planned an Archive dedicated to Amazon to highlight by some art projects (*) the systematic destruction perpetrated by landed proprietors with the connivance of the some governments to build the sadly “famous” trans-Amazonian highroads – real deep cuts on the forest's skin – and for a devastating plan of industrial agriculture which has “taken flash off” the forest. Forest which has not finished crying, has not ended to be sacrificed to favour also today the more wicked interests of unscrupulous persons.
After 40 years the AMAZON ARCHIVE invites you to send one or more works dedicated to this theme exclusively by post.

Intervene as you like, on one on more leaves picked on the ground
max size: 30x40 cms
free technique
deadline: February 29th 2020

The idea is to create an installation (a space/forest) with the help of the mail artist community.
The works will remain in the Amazon Archive
Online documentation and in the Juliet art-magazine.

Send to:
AMAZON
ARCHIVE OF ARTISTIC WORKS AND PROJECT
ABOUT THE AMAZONIC WORLD.
