Museum of Metaverse announces Art & Poetry Project


Event-Exhibition: Art & Poetry Project
by Rosanna Galvani (aka Roxelo Babenco)

Period: 22 September 2011 - February 19, 2012
Opening: September 22, 2011
Hours: 22.00

It opens Thursday, September 22, 2011, at 22.00, in  Piazza Plebiscito Napoli in Second Life, and Friday, September 23, 2011, at the Museum of Metaverse in OpenSim Craft, the first of twenty-two exhibitions of the project Art & Poetry.

22-poems, 22 weeks, 22 sites, 22 exhibitions, 132 works.

1 permanent exhibition dedicated to the poet Carmen Auletta (aka Margy Ryba) and its "painted poems".

The event is the continuation of the activities of Museo del Metaverso, in the already marked direction, in the belief that virtual worlds are spaces, albeit with a strong emotional component, however, suitable for construction of complex cultural events”

The initiative will be immersed in an international dimension, the cross-media and mixed reality, with the activation of a network that, through the social networks, virtual worlds and physical locations, will seek partnerships and collaborations with various subjects, internet players  and the world of culture and art in general. 

The first link  with a place of art will take place in the second week of exhibitions, specifically from September 29 to October 2, 2011, a period in which a live streaming will be enabled with Cannes, the Croisette, where from 27 June is in progress a personal exhibition of Patrick Moya. In the same day will be a link with Bogota, Colombia, for the presentation of performance by Pyewacket Kazianenko, Kai Steamer and Jo Ellsmere.
The initiative aims to focus attention on the art, through poetry, by linking new media art, born and developed in virtual worlds and the Neapolitan dialect poetry, born from the rich vein of contemporary poet Carmen Auletta. Two art forms that arise "from below" who meet in this project, communicating with each other.

Poetry and art have value in itself, it will be interesting to see the meeting of the two kinds and the story that will emerge, will not be relevant different interpretations of Carmen's poems by the artists, will be important only the poems and the works on display and suggestions that they evoke.

The aim of the project is to let the two kinds talk and watch the story that poetry and art, in this case poetry in Neapolitan language and new media art, will do.
