GAC IN 2014
Dear friend, in order to facilitate connections and synergies, I am trying to compile a complete check list of the homages, exhibitions and events dedicated to G.A. Cavellini that will take place in 2014 on the occasion of the artist’s Centennial. Please let me know with a simple email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you plan to organize a tribute in any form to the great Italian artist and networker. Also please let me know if you have received from GAC, around 1979-1980, an “authorization” to celebrate his Centennial in 2014 (like the one in the photo here below), I am trying to compile a list for GAC’s son, Piero Cavellini.
Thanks a lot for your help!
WORK IN PROGRESS - GAC IN SIRMIONE
You can see photos of the open air installation “Work in Progress” at the Parco Callas in Sirmione, Italy, with works dedicated to Cavellini by various international mail artists, selected by Lillo Marciano and Vittore Baroni, in the Facebook page of Art No Limits - Progetto Utopia - Towards 2014: www.facebook.com/artesenzalimiti?fref=ts . The project will continue throughout 2014, with more works added to the panels and special GAC installations in various locations in Sirmione. A documentation will be later produced and circulated.
