10 anni di luoghi non comuni

@ VOL 4 ON SEP 04, 2017

Il gruppo presenta le iniziative promosse negli ultimi dieci anni nel territorio regionale, i temi toccati riguardano principalmente la condivisione del bene comune inteso come patrimonio storico-architettonico, ambientale e soprattutto collettivo.

Ogni nostro intervento, sia critico che propositivo, vuole far conoscere l’Abruzzo nascosto e poco valorizzato, avendo come fine la riappropriazione del bene in maniera partecipata e non semplicemente come esposizione di un oggetto museale.

Durante gli ultimi anni abbiamo organizzato eventi, progetti, workshop, contest, seminari, osservazioni. Lo spirito del CAP è sempre stato propositivo rispetto agli enti con i quali c’è stata una collaborazione (Università, Comuni e Aziende) i vari progetti presentati, quindi, vanno letti sempre con un doppio registro, per e con la collettività.

When Caricature is Considered Portraiture

"[Aspects of the painting] were modified by the artist to fit a romantic and idealized version of a much contested historical event."In When Caricature is Considered Portraiture from Honolulu Vol. 23, Assistant Curator of the Arts of Hawai‘i at the Honolulu Museum of Art, Healoha Johnson considers how caricatures often depict political events and high-profile figures, and then remain as visual historical records with the potential to circulate misconceptions as truth through what is, in fact, a badly distorted caricature of the actual event or figure. Here she dissects "Hawaii's Decisive Hour", a painting by Eugene Savage, which could be said skews history by celebrating an annexation treaty between the U.S. and Hawaii that never actually passed.

Fabricating History

"I make art about ineffectual dreamers who try really hard to succeed at something but always fail miserably." In Fabricating History from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist and founder of the Great Moments in Western Civilization Cooperative, Caitlin Cass, focuses on the need for diverse sources in creative research, especially when you invent them yourself. She reflects on the subjectivity of history and explains how she co-opts historical authority to create comics and counterfeit historical exhibits. Walking us through her artistic process from the stage of “tadpole” to “strawberry dart frog,” Cass presents highlights of her recent comic book an counterfeit historical exhibits, such as “Folktales of American History” and “The Museum of Failure.”
