10 anni di luoghi non comuni
BY ALFREDO MANTINI
@ 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.
