the Mona Lisa Project

the Mona Lisa Project | Art Education and Collaboration | Scoop.it

Visual art collaboration shown at the Austin Museum of Art in September, 2011. 

 

The Mona Lisa Project is a visual art collaborative project which includes elements of performance, historical reflection and cultural commentary on art and the historical imagery of gender perception. It is based on an exchange between photographer Rino Pizzi and 16 women artists who specialize in different media and disciplines. The project involved the development of a series of works inspired by the image and cultural relevance of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa portrait, focusing primarily on the subject’s celebrated smile. The artists/sitters decided the setting and context of the portrait--clothing, environment, and more. The main objective of the project was that of providing a reflection on a wide range of topics in contemporary art production and representation, inviting women artists to embody an established icon about femininity, which is first produced as a portrait by a male photographer, and then re-appropriated through each artist’s own aesthetic vision and experience.

Laura Keeney's insight:

The Mona Lisa Project was developed by Rino Pizzi, a travel photographer, and includes a collaboration between him and 16 different female artists, to explore the historical accounts of gender perception. The artists use the Mona Lisa smile as a symbol for the project, and includes a variety of different media, and reflects on contemporary representation, and the implications of using male produced photographs in their artworks. The final work includes phtographs of female artists by Rino Pizze, and then appropriations of that image by the female artists themselves. This collaborative body of work questions the ideas of historical and cultural feminity through a contemporary viewpoint. Gallery available at http://www.rinopizziphotography.com/MLP/

My life for the past several months has been a four-letter word: M-Y-T-H.
Laura Keeney's insight:

This collaborative project is a current project happening in my home area. This project was devleoped by artist Ann Glover, and the idea is to make a 40-foot totem of the word "myth." The collaborative effort consists of over 20 artists, each contributing their own meaning of the word to the work. The artist, Ann Glover, says, "collaboration is critical to this creative project," and until recently, she thought of creating as a solitary process. This work brings together many different people and ideas from the local community, and shows the many different ways our ideas can be presented.

Does Artistic Collaboration Ever Work?

Does Artistic Collaboration Ever Work? | Art Education and Collaboration | Scoop.it
How creativity is both nurtured and thwarted when people team up
Laura Keeney's insight:

This article raises questions on the effectiveness or necessity of collaboration within the arts. It brings up very good points about the difference between conversing and idea generating with others to get ideas, and actually working in partnership with someone throughout the production of the work. Being around other creative minds can be great fro idea-generation, but this article points out that too many ideas going into the same project could inhibit the creative mind of another. The aricle also explains a difference in working indepentently and working in solitude, and some artists thrive off seeing their work through others. The article soncludes by warning us although collaboration is up and coming, that independant work still has its place in the creative process.

always voice after flying, created on "avaf + art21 comboworks," an interactive collaborative project from artist collective assume vivid astro focus and non-profit organization Art21.
Laura Keeney's insight:
This website is a publically developing artwork in collaboration with art21 and the artist collective, Assume Vivid Astro Focus. The body of works relies on the public to go to the website and create a phrase using the collective acronym, AVAF. Anyone can participate, and the combowork I created was "Always Voice After Flying." Once you create your own banner, it can be shared through social networks. The public work depends on public participation entirely, and the public's own views on information systems through he acronym and the website. This website realizes the people of the world as creative collaborators, and uses the technology available to us to bring all of these ideas together into one project.

Sketchtravel - The original book will be auctioned to benefit an international charity. | Art Education and Collaboration | Scoop.it
Sketchtravel is the name of an artistic experience initiated independently by illustrators Daisuke Tsutsumi (Japan) and Gerald Guerlais (France).
Laura Keeney's insight:

This collaborative project developed as a charitable project for Room to Read, an international literacy non-profit organization. This sketchbook includes the collaboration of over 71 artists over 12 countries. The original book was auctioned off in Brussels, but copies of the book can be bought.  The idea that so many different ideas and artists all contributed to this one work of art, added their own creative insight, and passed it on faithfully so that it could withstand four years of traveling and dedication from its artists is amazing. Getting so many artists togehter over such a long period of time to contribute to something, is rare and really creates a meeting of the minds within the book.

Puzzle Installation & Collaborative Project - Tim Kelly, artist

Puzzle Installation & Collaborative Project - Tim Kelly, artist | Art Education and Collaboration | Scoop.it
Laura Keeney's insight:

This project is a collaborative effort developed by the artist Tim Kelly, and includes schools, art festivals, art workshops and individual artists all over. The project centers around the idea of individuality, and how each person has their own story to tell. These stories, then become part of the artwork; part of the world of people who are all individuals. The puzzle piece theme is a great metaphor for students in order to physically see their artwork be part of something larger, yet still essential to the artwork. This collaborative project focuses on how essential art is as a form of expression, and the products only show how diverse that expression is among everyone around the world.

Assume video astro focus is an artist collective that focuses on collaborative projects centered around information technology, the media, and the "contamination" of it all in our development as human beings. The main collaborators include Brazilian born Eli Sudbrack and French multimedia artist Christophe Hamaide-Pierson. Their artwork raises a lot of ambiguous questions concerning mass media, individualism. cultural production, and the internet. Their artwork has a very pop art and colorful feel, and are very detailed and diverse in style and symbolism.

NEW YORK, NY.- Cheim & Read presents an exhibition of new work by the collaborative artists McDermott & McGough. Their previous show with Cheim & Read was in 2008.
Laura Keeney's insight:

This article highlghts colaborative artists David McDermott and Peter McGough. Through their artwork, they explore questions relevant to historical times, and re-discover those issues in the present tmes. This particular artwork, 100 Words of Love, was created by Ghada Amer, and displays 100 different Arbic words for love. This idea causes us to think about associations Westerners make with Arab nations, war, and hate. This shows the artists collaboration with his Western and Arabic cultures, and how he deals with those together in his artwork.
