AWARE is meant to recover the lost history of these women artists and replace it in the narrative of History of Art, using the web as a tool.
AWARE is a non profit organization which creates and enriches the first web site devoted entirely to women artists archives of the XXth century.
AWARE will be both an educational and professional web site where artists, collectors, institutions, historians and students will find the information they need regarding women artists of the XXth century. Accessible via Artist’s name, date or period, movement, technique, exhibition title, collection name, country or continent, AWARE will be structured by a chronology and enriched regularly by live filmed archive and regular publications.
To build and maintain this archive AWARE will use three different kinds of research tools.

Transcript

  • 1. Women artists of the XXth century have suffered from different types of lack of recognition: from the complete ignorance of their career to a lesser valuation of their work. Their history has been forgotten both by silence and obscurity Their personal and professional narrative has been partially to completely lost.
  • 2. In order to reverse this double bind AWARE de-entangle each of these knots: Against geography including that countries where women condition is still difficult. Against silence talking, researching and diffusing information. Against obscurity offering this information for free in a public space. AWARE is meant to recover the lost history of these women artists and replace it in the narrative of Art History, using the web as a tool.
  • 3. AWARE is a non profit organization which creates and enriches the first web site entirely devoted to women artist archives of the XXth century. AWARE will be an educational and professional web site. Reproductions of work will be completed by filmed portraits or testimonies.
  • 4. To build and maintain this archive AWARE will use three different kinds of research tools: 1 – WHAT ? Talking 2 – WACK ! Collecting 3 – WHALE … Exhibiting
  • 5. 1 – WHAT ? : Talking Women in History of Art Talks Bring together artists, art historians, critics, collectors and curators in public talks all over the world. Bring out lost information. Take up the feminine tradition of oral transmission of information. We believe that meetings create information, that sharing personal experiences can change the world. These talks will be edited, published and archived.
  • 6. 2 – WACK ! : Collecting Women Artists in Collections Knowledge Which public and private collections have made the choice to collect women artists? Which women artists are well represented in well-known public collections? Private or public partners all over the world commit to giving each year names, images, written and filmed information about important women artists from their collection/region.
  • 7. 3 – WHALE … : Exhibiting Women in History of Art Linked by Exhibitions Exhibitions devoted to women artists only in the XXth and XXIst century have been like whales : enormous amount of information to be preserved. These shows have been rare, precious and will be essential to the re-writing of Art History. Their knowledge should be preserved beyond language barriers.
  • 8. AWARE is a non profit organization registered under French law. It benefits of donations and regardless of the amount, 66% of the donation is eligible to income tax deduction, up to 20% of your taxable income. Corporate donations are eligible to important business tax reduction (up to 60%, with the possibility to carry forward the excess for 5 years).
