“Heritage”: International Medallic Project 2015
Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland would like to invite your studio and students to join our medal project, which aim is to propagate medal art and exchange our ideas about the contemporary medal art. If you are interested in participating in this year’s project, enclosed you will find the rules for the year 2015.
„Heritage” is the subject of this year’s project. The main question is: how do you define „heritage” for individuals, families, groups, in context of society, nation, religion or civilization.
„Heritage” , the 7th edition of the international medal project is a continuation of previous projects titled „Bonds” (2014), „Freedom” (2013), „Signs of the time” (2012), “Home” (2011), “Time” (2010) and “Dialogue” (2009). They were addressed to fine arts universities and colleges all over the world, where the contemporary medal art is being taught and which were interested in taking part in the project. The whole project shows the vast diversity in perceiving tendencies and development of contemporary medal art, from formal perspective and widely understood creation in usage of different materials.
The project has been initiated by Professor Joanna Bebarska and Doctor Sebastian Mikołajczak from Medal and Small Sculpture Forms Studio (Faculty of Fine Arts, Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń, Poland).
