ALL IS CALM - A CHRISTMAS PRODUCTION

BY Promise Adelaide | 27-Nov-2017
The Christmas Truce was an extraordinary event that took place in 1914, the first year of the war, and was never repeated. Thousands of men put down their guns and left their trenches to meet their enemies in No Man’s Land. They exchanged gifts of tobacco, rum and chocolates; even photographs of loved ones. They sang songs, played a game of soccer, and buried each other’s dead. Upon orders from above, they eventually returned to their trenches and re-instigated a war that would last four more years. All is Calm is a musical production with an entirely male cast who tell the story of the 1914 Christmas Truce through the words from letters and poems of the soldiers and through the a cappella harmonies of the Christmas songs they sung.

Welcome to the Šajn Online Art Exhibition! No more requests, proofing and praying at galleries, the internet has opened the door to him. From the very beginning, his artistic path has been set as a challenge opposite the established path that leaned on institutions and authorities.

His helpers have been nature, galleries, books and, above all, laborious but joyful creation. They have showed him the way. Nature and man have always been the objects of his interest.

BY d'Angers Gallery | 26-Nov-2017
Portrait, Painter Identity Mirror; A Criticism on 'A Mask unlike The Face' Exhibition in d'Angers Gallery in Semnan, Iran. Curator: Javid Ramezani; Art Research PhD., Tandis Art Magazine – Online Manager. An Art Critique written by Masoud Sadedin. Translated from Persian to English by Hamed Z. Qadim. Portrait, Painter Identity Mirror: What is in the mind of painter as he steps into his workshop? That is the question, not only the audience bear in mind, but also mostly painters are engaged to before entering their own workshop. Probably, the challenge is diverse as much as the number of the painters and each challenge in its very own leads into a new unique concept for painting. Otherwise, not only the painting but any other artwork driven by previous concepts and perceptions is sentenced to death and the artist is the executer.
