What's 39 ART Day (Thank You Art day)? - March 9

Originally 39 Art Day was initiated by a Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan. In Japanese, "thank you" rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), as there is no "th" sound and the Japanese people tend to pronounce "th" as "s." Thus, the Date for 39 Art Day on March 9 and now it is celebrated worlwide!
See www.39art.com for more details.

Culture Power Presentation: Where Europe Ends
a talk by Alina Mungiu-Pippidi

@The Ratiu Foundation / Romanian Cultural Centre, Manchester Square, 18 Fitzhardinge Street, London

Hosted by Dr Mike Phillips OBE, British novelist, historian and curator

19.00-21.00, The Ratiu Foundation / Romanian Cultural Centre, Manchester Square, 18 Fitzhardinge Street, London W1H 6EQ; Tel. 020 7486 0295, ext 108; e-mail: bookings@romanianculturalcentre.org.uk; Entry is free but booking is essential.

Romanian policy expert and journalist Alina Mungiu-Pippidi will talk about the problems that appear on the borderlands of Europe, with a special emphasis on the case of the Republic of Moldova. The evening’s presentation will be illustrated with excerpts from the documentary film ‘Where Europe Ends’ by Alina Mungiu-Pippidi and Sinisa Dragin.

Where Europe Ends
Documentary / Romania / 50 mins / English, Romanian, Russian, Ukrainian with English subtitles
Written and Directed by Alina Mungiu-Pippidi and Sinisa Dragin

'Where Europe Ends' is the story of the new political division of Europe. It travels along the old Eastern steppe border of Europe, from Transcarpathia (in Ukraine) - which geographically is the very centre of Europe - to the North of the Black Sea where old Genoese castles still stand. The historical border now separates the enlarged European Union from Ukraine and Moldova. Locals left in the cold consider themselves Central Europeans and speak a mixture of regional languages (Slovak, Hungarian, Ukrainian, Romanian, Russian, etc). They are often related to groups and countries across the border in the EU. The film tells the story of some of these border inhabitants, who lived in three or four different national states in the 20th century without changing their village. Some can still sing all the national anthems. Today the old still have only their Soviet-era passports, so they find themselves cut off from relatives across the new EU border. As to the young, they are afraid that a new European wall is leaving them out of Europe for good - so they besiege European consulates or try smuggling themselves across the border. Their stories show how a border which came to be from the hazards of war and peace is now becoming a destiny, dividing once again the East Europeans between losers and winners of history.

Alina Mungiu-Pippidi is a Romanian policy expert, journalist, and Professor of Democracy Studies at Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. She is currently Senior Visiting Fellow at the Department of Politics and International Relations Oxford University. Alina has authored numerous books and articles in English, French and Romanian. In 2002-2003 she was the writer and director of the BBC documentary ‘A Tale of Two Villages’ based on her book ‘Deux villages’ (Paris: l'Harmattan), broadcast in summer 2003 by BBC World Service. Among others positions held in the media, she was News Director of Romanian Public Television.

Organised by The Ratiu Foundation / Romanian Cultural Centre in London.

You are invited to the opening of a two man exhibition by the father and son artists. This will be the first preview that Anthony has attended since he began his recovery from a stroke in December 2008.
The exhibition features as the title suggests, a range of smaller sized works by both artists, ranging from dark and moody abstract landscape paintings on vinyl, to minimal abstract drawings, to black and white photographs. Although the exhibition is not the first since Anthony had a stroke, it signifies a significant move forward, and will feature work never seen before by both artists.
The exhibition will be on display at the Unity Theatre throughout March. The preview night will include nibbles, and drinks are available at the bar. Thank you, and we hope to see you at the opening.

Miniature Art Exhibition and Competition 2009:

@ Gallery4allarts, LLAWRCC / SMLLCA, 80 Lark Lane, The Old Police Station, Liverpool

A group art exhibition and competition featuring a selection of miniature artworks from artists mainly based in Liverpool and around North West England.

See the award winners' names, etc. by cliking this link.

Show ends on Saturday 3 January 2010, 5pm.

This exhibition will feature a selection of 2D miniature artworks in a variety of mediums and styles from abstract to representational, from Liverpool and North West based artists, children and all those who love being artistically creative or are simply talented within the fine arts. As we are approaching Christmas festivities, we would like the audience to be delighted to support this project with their visits and votes for the best artworks on show. Volunteers for Jury members and all donations are welcomed to support the project.

Why not join in and help to write 2D “Merry Christmas” on the walls of Gallery4allarts, on Lark Lane, decorate an indoors 3D Christmas tree sculptural installation and pack walls with your miniature artworks by creating and submitting 1-15 miniature size artworks by latest 5th December 2009.

For a better understanding and artistic performance related to this miniature exhibition Gallery4allarts is preparing for, I would like to ask those who (whether they are coming from a professional art background or not), are willing to submitting work, to read the notes and extracts mentioned below regarding the “miniature” painting and art in general and the origins of the “miniature” term itself.

“The term "miniature", as it addresses miniature painting, is often confused with "miniaturize" and some miniature art exhibitions do not refer to miniature as it's initial meaning of techniques, but rather the size of the painting (miniaturized painting). They are two very separate descriptions. (extract from article: “Miniature Painting - A Brief History of the Art of Miniature”, an article by: Rebecca Latham).
This particular exhibition and competition, open to everyone, is willing to focus and refer to “miniature” art and limit the size of the artwork submitted. The biggest dimensions should not exceed 12cm x 18cm. All mediums are welcome.
A randomly selected jury panel will be asked to judge upon various factors such as: ideas, talent, innovation (technique wise and uniqueness) and quality of work, technique. Curator, of this show and competition, is the artist of Romanian origins, Nicole Bartos representing Gallery4allarts.

Exhibition will open on the 11 December 2009 and will end on the 30 January 2010.
