MIRROR FACE TO FACE 2022 Italian and Dutch Artists Exhibition
The universal language of art connects cultures which meet in a common celebration of their similarities and differences.
As a mirror reflects faces, art reflects emotions and thoughts. That’s why the Vicenza Club for UNESCO supports the annual exhibition Mirror – Face to face, a creative comparison between engraving art in different countries.
For this eighth edition thirty Italian and thirty Dutch artists are invited to participate with one print, for an international public to compare visions, themes and artists’ different techniques, and to see how inspiration crosses time and places. The works will be on show in Italy and in The Netherlands.
The Italian exhibition is curated by Valeria Bertesina, project leader (also curator for Di Carta-Papermade, International artworks on paper Biennial, Schio, Vicenza), while the Dutch exhibition is curated by Maja Anastasova Chris, visual artist, art curator and art historian, board member of Grafein Foundation.
The Club for UNESCO of Vicenza and Grafein Foundation, are the contact points for Italy and The Netherlands, respectively.
Mirror – Face to face project follows the 2005 UNESCO Convention on the promotion of the diversity of cultural expressions and the 2005 Council of Europe Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society. Mirror – Face to face aims to encourage the artistic dialogue and promote cultural diversity as the common heritage of humanity and as the precondition for peace and social justice which should be cherished and preserved for the benefit of all.
