SOCIAL DADA - your art in the museum - Juan Petry - 2022 - 2023
an art project with contemporary artists from all over the world and ... with YOU!
At the end of the last century, a young German, then a student of fine arts, sent a drawing to the MoMA, Museum of Modern Art in New York. The drawing was simple, on an A4 sheet, spontaneous and direct. In the cover letter, the student offered his drawing to the museum as a document of contemporary art history, for the archive. It should be a contribution to and evidence of current contemporary art in Europe and as such find its place in the Museum of Modern Art collections. The people in charge of the museum responded very kindly and sent the artwork back. Unfortunately, their archive does not allow for storage. But the young contemporary artist was wished all the best on his creative path. The drawing, the artists letter, the reply from the museums management... its all together in a showcase at the Museum of Contemporary Art MAMAC in Nice.
The artists name is Josef Beuys.
Now the German-Spanish contemporary artist Juan Petry is setting out again and invites YOU to send YOUR work of art to the Museum of Modern Art in New York, this time as part of a great international social sculpture. And youre in!
