it's all about
" It seems anyone can say they are an artist today, probably
because so much goes under the name of art that it becomes
difficult to identify what art is and what art isn't;
it fulfills, or if art has, has had, has sought, or has
cared for a function at all. Perhaps the 21st century
artists should reconsider the unaccountablility of art,
start to grow up,
and join the real world"
Denis Taylor..W.O.R.K exhibition art director
"Heart 2 Art" is an exhibition which has a clear mandate
of its function and what kind of art will be featured.
The exhibition part of the after 5 years later project,
commissioned by D.I.S (an international support group
for survivors and relatives of tragedies) will display
which has a real direction. It will show art which is
endowed with hope as well as ability.
Its function is to bring people together in an atmosphere
of positiveness with a view to restore belief and give
to the viewer an inspired and dynamic attitude toward
Why five countries ?
Five countries have been selected by D.I.S to exhibit
"Heart to Art". Estonia, Sweden, Finland, Denmark and
Great Britain. These countries have been chosen due their
populations having been affected by recent catastrophies,
ie: MS Estonia, (now over five years ago) Similar incidents
remain in the minds and hearts of those who feel a connection
with this disaster.
The relevance and need of "Heart to Art" as a unifying
for all these people should not go unnoted. It is hoped
to exhibit in the capitals of each country, but more importantly
that each selected venue will give the exhibition the
greatest possibility to reach as many people as possible
to maximize its objectives.
A virtual reality exhibition, available through the www,
is planned to reach out to people in countries other than
those which will host the real world exhibition.
