MAIL ART PROJECT / LADY MADONNA
The woman with one thousand names
MAIL ART CALL 2018 on The Madonna
Each civilisation, country or religion honours its own female symbol of the matriarch. So will yours. In Christianity, the Madonna is Mary, also known as the Mother of Jesus, The Holy Virgin, Mediatrix, Stella Maris, etc. One thousand names, one thousand symbols, and thousands of works of art since the Middle Ages. From Giotto to contemporary celebrities, she has been indelibly present. And so it will always be.
In ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the magnificent Gothic cathedral, a statue of the Illustrious Lady has been cherished since the 14th century. The Illustrious Brotherhood of Our Blessed Lady preserves the legacy and celebrates its 700th anniversary in 2018. One of the most well-known members of the confraternity was Jheronimus Bosch, the world famous painter.
On the occasion of this centenary, we want you to make a contemporary representation of the Mary figure, nowadays increasingly transformed into a strong, hieratic and empathic modern woman.
In the tower of the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center there is a five-storey-high art gallery that we want to fill with glorious, shining and splendid Madonna figures. Think of women in beautiful clothes in their colorific splendour, surrounded with flowers, crowned and provided with attributes, or plain and simple, adapted to your own style and (art) tradition.
We're excited to be working with #ArupSheffield again after their original work on Park Hill over 60 years ago!
A first prize of £20,000 and a solo exhibition is awarded for the best new work of figurative and representational art.
