It was all about rhythm and dance, cultures and traditions displayed in music and, art and craft form.</p> <p>It was an opportunity to escape from the current cloudy political and economic weather of the country. People took the advantage of the opening ceremony fixed at the weekend to troop out in large numbers with their families and friends to savour the rich and energetic display of the <i>Atiliogwu</i> and <i>Ejionu</i> dance of the Igbos of the eastern Nigeria, the<i> Eyo</i> masquerade from the west, the Fulani warrior dance from the north; showing the beauty of their men and the elegantly handsome women, the pottery and dance display of the Nasarawa people of the middlebelt and the Niger Deltans flamboyant dance.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The royalty of the tribes can be seen from the costumes of the Edos’ to the wonderful royal regalia of the Hausas which were displayed during the Durbar show (the horses too were very well given a royal garment for the wonderful and colourful occasion). From the <i>nkwa umu agbowo</i> and<i> ekombi</i> (the dance of the maidens) with their anklets and beautiful <i>jigida</i> adorned waist (wriggling endlessly to the rhythm of the land) to the <i>mba mmiri</i> dance of the Calabaries. The <i>enyatu</i> (dance of authority) cultural dance vibrated to the rhythm emanating from their 80 years old <i>ekwe</i>; wooden gong.</p> <p> </p> <p>The women are beauty inexplicable; from the richly oiled hair style decorated with royal beads to the healthy looking and well polished ebony skin radiating in the sun, responding tirelessly to the vibrations of the sound; the sounds of our beginning. The <i>onyonyo </i>(women in the palace on their ceremonial attire) dance from Calabar was an elegance to behold.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The unique thing about this event is the unity of purpose and blend of so many culture and traditions in a single group outing. The masquerade displayed was breathtaking. It was a parade of the soul of the belief and ancestral life of the people. Each masquerade, dance steps and the music has a story that goes back to ancient times (each masquerade is perceived as an ancestral spirit).</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The Society of Nigerian Artists Abuja chapter mounted an art exhibition at the art and craft village as a nutmeg to chew to kolanut of this great event. It was a display of art works from predominantly young artists of the association.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The boat <i>Rigata</i> was another display by various riverine communities.  It was a showcase of the professionalism and skills of the fishermen and warriors of the communities. They paddle their boats round and round a circle dancing and singing the songs of their hearts. The warriors dance with their boats sailing away, piercing the air with their wooden spears, while the women among them paddle along the men in different boat, singing and dancing.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p> </p> <p>The masquerades represent the god of the river as evident in the carved aquatic animals on their heads; fish, crab, etc. it was beautiful and energetic, it was spiritual and intoxicating.</p> <p> </p> <p> </p> Thu, 26 Nov 2009 08:23:02 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list Albertus Van Wyk <p>Former dental practicioner I converted to Art practice almost Naturaly during a journey of one year in New Caledonia, where i was invited to go in a creative hermitage in the bush at Tao to prepare an Exposition of my work with Drifted Wood's .I produced about 30 opera's , mainly with a method that i called 'pigmentary impregnation' where the colors penetrates the wood. Pleased with the result's but not satisfied as far as the creative standard's ,I thought it would be nice to work with metal on these object's ,of course my first idea was to use Bronz.Since i am pretendet to have a creative mind i started creating, in the bush and during my journey there intellectualy my specific alloy:Aenors a quartenary composition of some gold,some more silver,much cuper to create mass and as much iron molecules as gold to ad a specific electromagnetic resonance to the alloy, wich turned out to be also the signature of my work's!( if it react's to a magnet i'ts aenors)<br /> The trademark Aenors is the alphabetical 'order' of the word Reason!<br /> I reallised the first fusion end 1994 at my return in Europe ,more precisely in San Remo at a friend's lab.<br /> For the need of the suspension of a steel ball in the ciprypedium of an opera "il messagero" i created a derivate of pewter by adding sporadic elements,i lowered the fusion point about10°degrees, the aim is to bring it under the 100 degrees celcius, but the creation is there and i call it Spirit of Aenors ,i am still researching and use it as adjuvance to Aenors Art Alloy in unique peaces; and as samples in my 75€valuetainer75€, to create a builded in lottery in this multiconceptual colectors item with fixed refundable nominal value.<br /> Taking in consideration my multiconçeptual collectors items,the limited serials of these items ,the unique specific alloy's ,the commercial approuch of my art totaly unreleased ,where i propose to buy back after 36 month's my collectors items if sealed and sound with a benefit for the art amateur /investor.</p> Tue, 04 Aug 2009 01:53:53 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list AleatoricArt.com Wed, 09 Sep 2009 10:08:07 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list Alexander Dubrovskiy <p>  Painter  Alexandtr Dubrovskiy, impressionism, Florentine mosaic in Cathedral of the St. Mine (Mariott, Alexandria, Egypt).</p> Thu, 09 Apr 2009 05:41:56 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list Alice Yard <p>Alice Yard is the backyard space of the house at 80 Roberts Street, Woodbrook, Port of Spain.<br /><br />This was once the house of Sean Leonard’s great-grandmother. Four generations of children played and imagined in this yard, and now we continue this tradition. Alice Yard is a space for creative experiment, collaboration, and improvisation.<br /><br />Alice Yard is administered and curated by architect Sean Leonard, artist Christopher Cozier, writer and editor Nicholas Laughlin, and musician Sheldon Holder, with the help of a growing network of creative collaborators. <a href="http://aliceyard.blogspot.com/2007/09/who-are-we.html">Read more about us here.</a><br /><br />Since late 2006, Alice Yard has been home to <a href="http://12theband.com/">12</a>, the band led by musician Sheldon Holder. A series of weekly Friday-night “Conversations in the Yard” organised by Holder from 2006 to early 2008 brought musicians, artists, writers, and audiences together for informal performances and interactions.<br /><br />In September 2007, <a href="http://aliceyard.blogspot.com/2007/09/what-is-space.html">a modest gallery space</a> opened in Alice Yard.

Being born and organically blended into the Polessye culture and traditions, she has embodied in her art the very heart of this wonderful land so dreadfully damaged with nuclear contamination. <br /><br />Belarus is a country where most of the people strive for survival and there are very few art lovers who can support local art with their orders. Local churches give some occasional, tiny orders for religious paintings but this does not allow the artist to set up its own studio and thoroughly develop her creativity. Instead of nourishing its talent she strives to make her ends meet. The area around Mozyr is marked with exceptional natural beauty and part of it is national landscape sanctuary. And the local people are the greatest asset of this country. I would highly recommend to use the art of Alla for raising Chernobyl awareness worldwide. 23 years later, the problem seems to be there and no almost no real measures are taken to help local people survive the Chernobyl nightmare which still goes on. It is very important to raise the morale and cultural level of those who continue to survive against all odds in this hospitable and captivating country by supporting the very few remaining local artists. No support on the regional or national level is avaialable, so this message is a desperate appeal to the global Chernobyl-aware community.  <br />I would strongly recommend to invite Alla for a series of exhibitions and portrait sessions across Europe as artistic contribution to addressing the ongoing impact of Chernobyl inferno on the long-suffering people of Belarus. <br /><br />You are most welcome at her website: http://allamelnichenko.narod.ru/</p> Wed, 16 May 2012 17:56:57 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list Alliance for the Arts and Culture Thu, 15 Mar 2012 22:26:34 +0000 http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list http://www.artslant.com/ew/Resources/list
