During these last weeks started the latest project of Roxelo Babenco (aka Rosanna Galvani), i.e.“Art&Poetry” project, which aim to bring together the “painted poems” of Margye Ryba (aka Carmen Auletta), in Neapolitan, and the interpretation that some artists will like (and be able) to give with their works. The project, which want to “create a dialogue between the two genres“, Neapolitan poetry and media art, is divided into two parts: An exhibition of Carmen’s poems and associated works in Opensim Craft by the gallery of Museo del Metaverso and in Second Life by Pyramid Cafè and related show, involving dynamic artwork inspired by Carmen’s poems and that will be traveling to various venues across the grid (always in Second Life) hosted by Italians and foreign lands sensitive to culture and art (at the moment there are yet seven lands or galleries which joined the project).
The exhibition will begin officially September 22 with a closing date which is for now February 5, 2012 (except for possible extensions). Regarding the traveling show, every land will host the exhibition for 4 days, with 6 artists who will show their works inspired to the poems of Margye/Carmen. On Museo del Metaverso site are publishing the selected 20 Neapolitan poems of Margye/Carman and their translations in English. There will be 120 artist that will be invited to show their works in 20 weeks (one different poem for every week), selected by those who will send to museodelmetaverso(at)gmail.com an image of their work, or a link to their own site where an image of the work can be find, by the deadline of August 31, 2011.
