Featuring: Jorge Caligiuri
Jorge Caligiuri is part of COVIMETRY, exhibition at
Ely Center of Contemporary Art, New Haven, CT.
This artistic project is about a global manifestation of various trends in geometric art that is aware of its time, under the name COVIMETRY.
About the Exhibition:
Living with a lifelong passion for Geometry and year-long isolation from the devastating pandemic Covid, artist and curator Mark Starel of Warsaw Poland brought the two together (geometry & mask) with his newest exhibit COVIMETRY.
Today human survival is dependent upon our using an “antivirus” mask covering our most noted communication tool, our mouths, along with noses and much of our face. The mask has hindered our ability to read others expressions and feelings. By adopting the mask as a template and canvas, it now becomes a form for expression- even if just a fragment of a bigger picture of our times metaphorically.
Starel also brought together over 300 artists, uniting continents and likeminded geo-zealots. His intention is to grow the exhibit until it reaches 1000 artists, representing every country as a global community. Different artistic strategies are conveyed, exploring the shape and structure of the mask through the inclusion of a variety of media, styles and techniques that allow for contemporary notions of how geometry is being investigated today.
This exhibition will be running from April 19 – June 6, 2021.
