|Taller Multinacional||Mexico||Mexico City||Platform dedicated to discuss and improve visual arts practices and creative process and production in Mexico and Latinoamerica||
Taller Multinacional is located in Fernanda Mejía's and Miguel Rodriguez' artist workshop in Mexico City's downtown. While working with other artists and institutions from Latinoamerica and Mexico, started to realize the importance of the collaborative process and projects in arts, given the urgency on discussing and changing some old artistic practices, cultural policy's and deficient infrastructure for must of the South and center american countries, but most importantly to discuss this agenda parting from the very center of the practice, it is to say with the artistic community itself and around their own forms and needs of life, searching for new forms of action and interaction between the different cultural actors. So, for a start it was urgent to conform a platform introducing the simple possibility of discussion and analysis of the artistic scene and this way to determine some of the most relevant problems and ideas to the visual arts practice today in our context.
This is why in July 2009 Fernanda Mejía, Victoria Narro and Miguel Rodríguez Sepúlveda after a long and thoughtful conversations decided to open the space to the public and to create a platform dedicated to discuss and improve visual arts practices and creative process and production, taking steps to formalize their activities in Mexico city, aiming to consolidate their international network (established by the artists during their international career mainly in South America) and to extended to an other incipient artists networks and associations around latinoamerican countries.
|International Artist Day oct 25th yearly||Canada||Vancouver||A special day held every year to honor all the contributions artists have given society.|
October 25th is International Artists Day Perhaps an overview is needed to explain the concept.
Artists are a much ignored group although almost anything you use day to day has an artistic design at its root. Throughout history art has been the most important defining characterization of a culture or people. Art survives personalities, dynasties, movements and civilizations. Artists are pioneers and are usually at the forefront of changing times and events.
Now more than ever it is important to focus on art and culture. Mainstream television, globalization and the Internet are wiring everyone up to the lowest common denominator. True living requires atunement to our common humanity which is accessed through inspiration and the arts. By giving our attention to artists, we have the opportunity for one day to focus on what is eternal and timeless in our civilization. Just as Remembrance Day is important for the pausing to reflect, Oct. 25th can give us a reason to participate in the arts personally.
Visit a gallery, attend an art show, take an artist to lunch or visit his studio are a just few ways to stop and remember the artist. Talk to your kids about art, even if you don't think you know much about art, to help instill some interest in art with them. If you're like most people, you didn't grow up with art as an important aspect of living, but “the buck stops here” when it comes to your kids and we need to take more of an interest for their sakes. Please go to web site www.internationalartistday.com and join us at facebook also.

|Toyism Art Movement||Netherlands||Emmen||The World of Toyism|
1992 – Present
“Once upon a time, in an Emmen, Netherlands basement, an art movement named “Toyism” was born from one Mother and many fathers.” Doesn’t that sound like a good story starter? Actually, the time was 1992, Mother is an inanimate object and the fathers may be male or female - but none of these facts detract from the good story part. Here, just listen …
Toyism came about partly as a countermeasure to two decades’ worth of that which might be construed as an increasing “anything goes” Post-Modern individualism. The 1970s-1990s environment, that fostered works such as a fleck of human faces on a piece of paper, was long on sensation but often short on traditional skills. Fittingly, Toyism was born in the Netherlands where the time-honored craft of painting never quite went out of fashion.
Dejo, a visual artist and musician living in Holland wrote a manifesto and, together with two other visual artists, introduced Toyism to the public.
Moeder, which is Dutch for “mother,” is the manifesto of the Toyists. Mother’s contents are known only to the current Toyists, one Toyist emeritus and the notary public who affixed his seal to Mother on April 23, 1993 in Emmen. Do we need to know Mother’s contents? We don’t. All that is important is that we know three things.
1. Mother provides a framework for creation
2. Every Toyist’s creation is embraced as a new flirtation for Mother.
3. Mother was revised in October of 2002 in order to attract younger artists to Toyism.
Who are the Toyists?
Upon joining the group, each Toyist selects a pseudonym that must begin with a letter of the alphabet not already in use by another Toyist. After this point, and regardless of how one signs his or her rent checks, the artist signs all works with the chosen pseudonym. Why? It’s a collective, you see. It’s faceless. We fans of Toyism are not meant to single out John Q. Famous Artist or Jane Dough, Media Darling.

Some of the original artists are still with us, along with many others now, who offer a wide variety of interests in art and craft. Most of us are open year round, by chance or appointment, and we still hold our annual Studio Tour and Sale in the fall. At that time if you decide to visit you know for sure we will be at home in our studios waiting to welcome you..... But come by at any time of the year. There's lots to see and Merrickville is a lovely place to be. There's a 'feeling' about it all.|
