Dear Friends in our Newcastles all over the world,
At our recent conference in Shinshiro it was agreed that we do more “to promote exhibitions among the different Newcastles” Now Neuchâtel (Switzerland) offers other Newcastles the opportunity of welcoming an exhibition from The Blueman, an artist living in their city.
After travelling and meeting people through the world (Europe, Russia, Japan, Senegal, Sweden, Canada, USA, Thailand, India, Mexico and other countries), Blueman this year celebrates his 20th anniversary. See the attached document and Blueman’s website (www.theblueman.com<http://www.theblueman.com
> ) to learn more about Blueman and its project.
To commemorate this anniversary Blueman (with the help of private and public sponsors) has decided to create an exhibition offering both a look back on 20 years of intercultural meetings and an interactive opportunity to create new links between people, cities, countries and continents.
This exhibition is created in the form of a tent shaped like a giant blue being. It will be inaugurated in September 2019 in Neuchâtel (Switzerland). The project is to let this exhibition then travel to other Newcastles considering the Alliance as a natural network for Blueman. This should happen at the end of 2019 and during 2020.
The tent would stay for about 15 days in every city. Blueman will personally perform during the 2 or 3 first days of the exhibition. Portraits taken in the different cities will enrich the exhibition during his trip and thus create a link between the different cities.
What is expected from the cities hosting the exhibition?
– NO financial participation
– to provide an outdoor space for the tent (the tent is 11 meters wide / 18 meters long)
– to provide the electrical installation required for the exhibition
– to ensure the safety and protection of the tent during the exhibition
– to provide a team to take the exhibition down
– to promote the exhibition.
If you are interested please send the contact details (email and phone) of a person in charge of this project for your city. In addition, it would also be useful to let us know if you have a time of year that you would prefer. Please contact Daniel Veuve at the City of Neuchâtel with this information or if you need to know more.
With kind regards from Blueman!
