THE ANTIBODIES WAR AGAINST COVID-19 IN THE DRAWINGS OF ITALIAN SCHOOLS

The war on the terrible worldwide spread of covid-19 is played mainly through personal behavior and with the response of our immune system through the great role of antibodies. This is the plot of a story in episodes that in Italy is involving many schools and students. Everything takes place through blogs and social networks. This beautiful and engaging initiative was launched by a young and lively publishing company, Funtasy, which specializes in innovative activities for the schools and children.

Funtasy Publishing is proposing to the Italian kids and schools a story in episodes, entitled “The day when Cattivirus was knocked out” (Cattivirus means “bad virus“). The aim is to involve teachers, families and children in an activity during the national coronavirus emergency days. The story that I wrote – illustrated by Eleonora Moretti – in each episode proposes the invitation to make drawings. The initiative is having great success, with thousands of drawings sent to Funtasy and Okay! magazine. There is a desire in children to beat the virus, Cattivirus, with everyone’s commitment. Because this battle is not won individually, but all together.

Here are some of the drawings received from Italian Schools: the theme is: “Antibodies against covid-19”  For info: funtasyeditrice@gmail.com

MACRO PHOTOS FOR “THE WORLD WATER DAY” (MARCH 22): THE SHAPES OF SEA WATER

A video to celebrate the World Water Day 2020, on 22 March.  The pictures of the video are not paintings or digitally made compositions, but abstract and macro photos that I took for my project-research “Lacer/actions” around an old boat – and its hull – in Torre a  Mare, beautiful seaside place in Apulia, Italy.

World Water Day 2020, on 22 March, is about water and climate change – and how the two are inextricably linked. Adapting to the water effects of climate change will protect health and save lives. Using water more efficiently will reduce greenhouse gases. We cannot afford to wait.Everyone has a role to play.

RETROSPECTIVE: ADVERTISING POSTERS ON BILLBOARD AND THEIR PROCESS OF CHANGE (VIDEO, 2010)

“Lacer/actions – Lacer/azioni” was made exactly 10 years ago: in March  2010. I created it through the Animoto platform, accepting the challenge of producing a video clip of thirty seconds of maximum duration. In the video we see some of the macro photographic images I took around advertising posters billboard. I have always been impressed and fascinated by the way in which publicity posters undergo a natural process of changethe atmosphere corrodes them, the wind tears and cuts them, the rain changes them into different colors and finally they are superimposed with other posters.

Yes, they’re not paintings, but “Lacer/actions”!

UFFIZI GALLERIES: “THE GARZONI CHALLENGE” DEDICATED TO A GREAT FEMALE PAINTER (1600 – 1670)

The-Garzoni-Challenge_2

On March 9, the Uffizi Galleries will be launching the Challenge live, at the Garzoni exhibition’s Press Conference / Inauguration at the Pitti Palace’s famed Sala Bianca. During the Florence event, Gallery Director Eike Schmidt will share the concept of the Uffizi as a ‘living museum’ and its efforts in recent years to spotlight art by women. Exhibition curator Sheila Barker will impart a short presentation on ‘The Universe in a painting’ as related to Garzoni’s oeuvre, particularly works exhibited on this occasion. AWA Director Linda Falcone will ‘launch’ the challenge itself, with a selection of ‘photographed’ examples by select artists, locally and internationally.

What is The Garzoni Challenge? 90 works by Baroque artist Giovanna Garzoni and her contemporaries will soon be on show at the Uffizi Galleries annual ‘Women’s Day’ exhibition, opening at the Pitti Palace on March 10. What would happen if today’s artists were to follow her lead in pairing the exotic and the familiar?

A woman of her times, Giovanna Garzoni (1600 – 1670) exemplifies the seventeenth-century interest in scientific detail and minute realism, but her ‘miniaturist’ eye seeks a globalized vision. Garzoni’s art brings together England and Japan, Mexico and China… In her luminous still life works, shells collected on faraway beaches are matched with precious blooms that grow in jungle weather. Delectable fruit from the ‘front garden’ is heaped half-eaten in Far-East porcelain. The artist captures the ‘Universe in a painting’ by immortalizing artifacts from around the globe without ever straying from local landscape.

Starting March 8, as the world strives to remember and recognize the achievements of pioneering women, the Uffizi Galleries, in partnership with Advancing Women Artists and the Medici Archive Project, launch a creative ‘challenge’. It’s an appeal, ‘challenging’ modern-day artists to use Garzoni’s art as a springboard to create their own original works, spotlighting the foreign and the familiar. Cultural and educational institutions across the globe are invited to host their own editions. The Garzoni Challenge bridges the gap between art of the past and art of the present, becoming a catalyst for creative conversation through the centuries.
