Urban Facelift, works of 22 artists from 15 countries curated by Emma Papadopoulos, hung along the Athens School of Fine Arts Pireos Street railing is on show till September 6th 2019.

This is a parallel project to Medea 2019 Broken Symmetry, the 7th International Interdisciplinary Symposium on Art, Science and Technology.

Emma curated this to bring art onto the street in the form of weatherproof banners exhibiting diverse approaches as an extension of her presentation “Outdoor Galleries” at the symposium. This public pop-up artspace extends the white box concept of a conference gallery and the aesthetics of banner advertising.

First Twitters. twelve waterproof paper shapes, a branch, lighting and a text by Sen McGlinn and Sonja van Kerkhoff

First Twitters, 12 watervast papier vormen, een tak uit Maastricht, belichting en tekst
van Sen McGlinn en Sonja van Kerkhoff

Alles en wat in aanleiding van de ‘strip.’ Letterlijk, figuratief en conceptueel.
“Hoewel het nog te vroeg is om dat te kunnen zeggen is volgens sommigen de strip de kunstvorm van deze eeuw. Hoe het ook zij, strips, zelf opgegroeid met beeldende kunst, zijn nu volwassen, strips zijn zelf kunst geworden.
In ‘Kunst en (andere) strips’ worden strips geëxposeerd samen met (andere) kunst waar op de een of andere manier aan te zien is dat ‘striptaal’ zich niet meer beperkt tot strips.
Ongeveer zoals de strip gebruik maakt van (andere) kunst.”

OPENING: 19 april, 20 uur, Galerie de Pieter (www.galeriedepieter.nl)

Breestraat 46 (google maps)
2311 CS Leiden
Openingstijden: za-zo van 13.00 tot 17.00 uur.

on Jan 31st in Puke Ariki, New Plymouth.

Sen and Sonja were in New Plymouth, Aotearoa / New Zealand, to participate in the 4th SCANZ residency at WITT (The Western Institute of Technology Taranaki). Their project was to create a sculptural form for the 5 video work “Kāinga a roto” using recycled materials as much as could be possible. Thanks to use of Ans’ camper we were able to transport the leftover recycled wood from our Rotorua project. The wood for the arches was recycled from the Govett-Brewster Gallery undergoing renovations, and most of the cardboard came from a construction site.

Thanks to the help of many and the use of the WITT workshop, it was finished in time for the opening on Feb 2nd, in Puke Ariki (the Taranaki museum of natural history + ethnology) in New Plymouth.
More about this work as well as images of the finished work is here >>

The choice of Los Medanos College is not accidental; the college is the only institute of higher education in the delta area where the San Joachin and Sacramento rivers merge before entering San Pablo and San Francisco Bays. The challenges and sensitivity of the eco-systems in the region is one reason for Los Medanos’ extensive Environmental Studies curriculum. In addition to its Art Gallery, the campus features a native plant preserve and a centralized water re-use pond. The Waterwheel blog >>   About this show >>
