NEW YORK, NY – March 20, 2016 – / Four creative, female artists from Norway, USA, Israel and Iran announced last week their launch of their international art project #ICareFor.
Henriette Roka-Aardal (Norway), Natalie Burlutskaya (USA), Shirley Siegal (Israel) and Hadieh Afshani (Iran) launched last week their art project called #ICareFor in social media. It is an international art project for female artists around the world.
This group is interested in getting to know what different women in arts from different parts of the world are caring for and standing for. After collecting information from several female artists, the curator team will eventually use the obtained material for a video work to be shown in an exhibition called “the Female Power” in New York as a part of the project.
“We hope as many as possible of all female artists from around the world will participate”, says the Norwegian artist and curator Henriette Roka-Aardal. “The submission is free and for every creative woman out there”, she continues. “All you need to do is post an image of yourself with your work/s and write what you do care for, and use the hashtag #ICareFor”, she adds.
#ICareFor is an international art event and part of the Art & Social Project “The Female Power” which is a platform for self-identified women artists to speak out, express their thoughts and concerns. The curator team plans several art events, social talks and group exhibitions in the future.
The research #ICareFor is aiming at gathering the material and connecting women from different countries in order to organize art events supporting and promoting the most important social causes.
This January the four women met through the international art exhibition “Show Your World” in New York, organized by Re:Artiste. Shortly after the exhibition, co-founder Natalie Burlutskaya contacted the other three female artists and together they started a group collaboration and planning their first common art project #ICareFor.
The four collaborating artists are;
Henriette Roka-Aardal, Norway: Painter, Interior Decor Advisor, Restorer.
Natalie Burlutskaya, USA: Co-Founder of RE:ARTISTE International Art Organization, Photographer, Networking Program Coordinator for Creatives – “Art Terrace” and “The Platform”.
