XIV International AIMC Conference of Contemporary Mosaic, May 21st to 24th 2014 and the accompanying exhibition May 21st to 25th 2014
By Edda Mally, president of the congress
Dear Mosaic friends,
It was great pleasure for me to welcome you all in Vienna in occasion of the XIV International Conference of Contemporary Mosaic and the accompanying exhibition.
There were over hundred inquiries of participation at the conference, and 37 lecturers nominated. Nearly all of them were present and their presentations can be found in the catalogue accompanying the exhibition and the Conference.
A wide arch of themes were chosen as overviews of the development of mosaic in various countries, presentations of the artist´s own work as well as personal viewpoints regarding contemporary mosaic.
On Friday, May 23 rd 2014 a discussion with the theme: “AIMC and Mosaic today” took place in the Hall “Podium” of the Architectural Centre, Vienna, where also the exhibition of “Contemporary Mosaic” could be seen. It could have been expected that a solution regarding this problematic nature was not possible. The art history is rich of examples of how standpoints and acceptance change while time is passing by. When we go back only one hundred years, we find Klimt, Cezanne, Monet, Gauguin, Loos, Hoffmann and others in trouble of being accepted. And today – they are highly appreciated artists, masters of the classical modern period!
But someone can be happy, that people started thinking and talking about “what is Contemporary” and expressing their opinion in front of 40-50 people.
At the accompanying exhibition 64 artists of 27 nations participated.
To show that also the art of dance developed to another style of expression, Jefferson Ramon performed a modern version of dance using also modern music.
The exhibition was opened officially by Mag. Günther Schönberger, CEO Bildrecht.
The evening of the opening visitors as well as artists were encouraged to vote for the 3 best pieces on show. Although there were no prizes available but only a special created certificate, the interest which piece was chosen best, was high.
In the evening of Saturday, May 24th the result of the voting was announced:
In the following 4 days, May 22nd – to 25th .the exhibition was visited by almost 200 people, which is a very good result regarding the problematic subject of contemporary mosaic.
Now the mosaics are already at the Glass-Museum in Weigelsdorf, where the next opening shall take place on June, Friday 27th 2014. Unfortunately it had to be transferred back because of the opening of world championship in Brazil which would have been exactly the same day.
As it was mentioned several times already, it would be very beautiful to show the exhibition of contemporary mosaic also in other European countries, that means to work on a itinerary exhibition. But for this continuing project collaboration is absolutely needed. Whoever is interested in, please get in contact with me.
In the meantime please use my actual email address: email@example.com
Let’s hope to meet again. Then I shall be free of any official duties and offer more personal contact.
With cordial greetings, best wishes from Vienna to you all and thank you for coming!
