Dubai project

Concept Alicyn Henning and Dolf Pauw, 
design Dolf Pauw

Exityourstoryteller was invited to exhibit their work in Dubai. The owners of the Alserkal Cultural Foundation want to think about it to exhibit this work. We researched their Center and have seen that they are specialized in local Arts and Craft. Our work is of another level. So we continue to get our work exhibit at another gallery in Dubai. Five works are finished, the sixth work is about the animal life in Dubai (this workpiece is in progress). Here you see two pieces of work: Compass and Rain. LINK exityourstoryteller

BABA MARTA DAY (the "Martenitsa" Day) - March 1

This Martenitsas are imported by Julia from Plovdiv a few days ago to Rotterdam

March 1st is known as the "Baba Marta" Day in Bulgaria – so, on the very March 1st, as well as the days following, all people give each other red-and-white tokens in the form of strips, ornaments or a pair of small woollen dolls, traditionally called “Pizho” (the male character) and “Penda” (the female one), also known by the name Martenitsas.

Salim Bayri

Surprising during Art Rotterdam 
Photo's dolf pauw

Salim Bayri (Casablanca) is an artist graduated from the Escola Massana art school (Barcelona) and currently a Masters degree candidate in Art, Design and Technology at the Frank Mohr Instituut of Groningen (Netherlands). Being born and raised in a crossroad country like Morocco and living in Europe, his work stems from questioning the disparity between self, cultural and national identity. By taking daily life as subject matter, his work is the outcome of examining the different layers of identity labels that supposedly define his persona as a migrant. With a humorous approach, he plays with these labels twisting them and presenting them in a variety of media through performances, drawings, still and moving images. He creates situations in which everyday objects are altered or detached from their natural function. By drawing specific narrative lines, different functions and contexts are created. Salim Bayri is currently the half of BAZOGA music duo. LINK Salim Bayri

J. Howard Miller

We Can Do It! poster 
Rosie the Riveter, picture from Geraldine Doyle

Miller studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating in 1939. He lived in Pittsburgh during the war. His work came to the attention of the Westinghouse Company (later, the Westinghouse War Production Co-Ordinating Committee), and he was hired to create a series of posters. The posters were sponsored by the company's internal War Production Co-Ordinating Committee, one of the hundreds of labor-management committees organized under the supervision of the national War Production Board. Miller may have based the "We Can Do It!" poster on a United Press International (UPI) a supposedly picture taken of Geraldine Doyle working at a factory in Michigan, but in recent year it was said to be a picture of Naomi Fraley nee Parker in 1942 in California. At the time of the poster's release the name "Rosie" was not associated with the picture; that came after 1982 when the poster was rediscovered in the US National Archives. LINK wikipedia
