UPNEC - Università Popolare Natura e Cultura, in collaboration with the publishing house Anicia, is pleased to announce the open call for the art exhibition I say Autism, and you say? - Between literature and art, the unwritten rules of everyday life.
The exhibition I say Autism, and you say? will be held at Sala Porto Franco, Via Catanelli, 28 - Ponte S. Giovanni, Perugia from 05 July to 11 July 2021 during the event of the same name that aims to bring us closer to the theme of autism. The event is inspired by two books: Autism - The unwritten rules of social behaviour for children and young people aged 4 to 12 and I’m not a monster, I tell you! published by the publishing house Anicia.
The exhibition will be the artistic background in which the educational events will take place.
The deadline for the presentation of the works is May 26th, 2021 (11.59 pm local time).
The art exhibition I say Autism, and you say? aims to create a multidisciplinary artistic environment that will further explore the autism spectrum working towards a better understanding regarding approach and connection, allowing us the great opportunity to enrich our lives with new facets, shapes, colours, words, experiences, and substances.
We therefore invite artists to reflect on the subject and in turn submit your work through which you will present what the theme of Autism has awakened or triggered in you, as well as your reactions, experiences, comparisons or encounters.
Artists, professionals and non-professionals, designers and architects are invited to talk about Autism through photos, paintings, sculptures, installations, drawings, prints, books, comics and mixed-media art.
The selection will be chosen by a commission of experts in the areas of art and cultural, and autism, who will evaluate the relevance to the theme within artistic expression.
The deadline for submission of works is May 26th, 2021 (11.59 pm local time).
The selected artists will be informed by 10 June 2021 (23.59 local time)
