ARTS workshop in Sweden. The group is preparing for the transnational meeting in Greece.
How the face is imprinted in art, through the eyes of people who were persuaded to paint because they believed to themselves? And what happens when the characters are displayed in different cultures?
“ANTIGONE-Information and Documentation Centre on Racism, Ecology, Peace and Non Violence” supports the initiative “CHROMATODROMOS” in the second group painting exhibition entitled “The depiction of the face in different cultures.”
“CHROMATODROMOS” is an initiative to support visual artists with mental problems, which involve not only individuals but also organizations / institutions interested in upsetting the prevailing conception of education whereby especially people with disabilities are considered more recipients rather than producers knowledge. Particular emphasis is given to the socialization of people with interaction effects and projection, mainly through individual and group exhibitions. As part of this initiative conducted creative activities related to visual arts, which collectively decide and plan all its members.
In the second group exhibition artists wanted to capture faces of a multi-cultural landscape, influenced by travel, everyday life, news and dreams.
With the support of the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, which embraced the group since its inception, the exhibition opens in Thursday, February 16th, 2017 at 18.00 and will be hosted in the area of the MMCA.
Duration: 16th to 19th and 23rd to 26th February 2017
Days & hours: Wednesday 10: 00-22: 00, Friday 10: 00-19: 00, Saturdays 10: 00-18: 00 Sunday 11: 00-15: 00.
It’s Christmas and we are still here, painting, focused on the face. The weather is very cold, but the group of the volunteers are working hard for the upcoming exhibition, but also for the good of the companionship, needed especially these days. Loneliness was discussed to be one of the biggest challenges for the people with mental problems. CHROMATODROMOS, the initiative that works for the project ARTS, tries to be more than an art group; focuses on the support, the friendly environment, the place for communication, the workshop of self-evaluation.
