-We are a group of artists named “iconoplastes art group”. We have created and took part in a Central Unesco’s Project titled “My City- scenes and Sounds of my City”. We presented our city, Elassona, having Mount Olympus as the start and the end of our project, because we live in the shadow of this sacred mount. (introductive note - republication from unesco site)
The project is: http://unesco.sjsu.edu/
- On the occasion the particular program, we call you in the “1st International Mail Art Biennale in Greece”.
The selected artwork will be the exposing material for the creation of the “1st Museum of Postal Art” in Greece. We would like this museum to be founded in Elassona, the city where the 1st International mail art exhibition was held under the title: “Psychedelic” (producer: Ioanna Papachristou, coordinator- curator: Thomai Kontou).
Get into the site, se the project and let Olympus with its muses and Elassona, to create inner pictures. Send your works inspired from our city or your own city, your memories and way of living. In that way a lot of cities will co-exist, in this collection, through to the inspiration and soul of the artists.
Title: “Cities enclosed like fields where I used to live…..for Olympus, for Elassona, or the city everyone has in his mind and heart”
Media: painting, engraving, visual art, photo, artistamp.
Size: postcard, A3, A4.
No jury, no fee.
All works are going to be exhibited. The works will be the supporting material of the Museum. So they are not going to be returned.
Deadline: 30 October 2007.
