This project, directed by Prof. Claudia DeMonte, at
University of Maryland at College Park (USA) is looking for one woman artist
representing each country of the World. All the pieces will be exhibited in
the United States. The opening will be June 2000 in White Columns, New York.
The deadline for sending artworks is September 1 st, 1999 since
time is needed to prepare the catalogue and present the exhibition in other venues.
The concept of the whole piece is what represents woman
for each culture, traditional techniques of
each country will be given a preference, but all techniques and
styles are welcome. Women artists are still needed in the following countries:
Each artist is invited to submit a piece depicting what represents WOMAN to
her. The piece can be in any technique, but should be a wall- piece, 8 x 8
(20, 5 x 20, 5 cm) unmatted and unframed. We suggest working on canvas or
wood , not cardboard or paper since the pieces will not be framed. Pieces
should be sent directly to the address indicated in the Entry Form by air
mail, please no Air Freight. We suggest to write in the envelope: PRINTED
MATTER/ For exhibition Only All the pieces will be auctioned at the end of
the show, to benefit The New York Women Foundation, which help women causes
all around the world. Pieces not sold will be return to the artists.
