10.17.08 | YOUNITY PRESENTS: HEART & SOUL | AN ART EXHIBITION & BOOK LAUNCH
On October 17, 2008, YOUNITY is proud to present a celebratory art collaboration involving 60 international women artists who have come together to showcase what they identify as "heart and soul." The exhibit will provide an urban landscape installation that unifies and pushes the boundaries of graffiti, photography, urban contemporary and fine art.
The exhibition will showcase original artwork by current YOUNITY members as part of an indoor/outdoor site specific installation that pays homage to the urban landscape. Members include world-renowned artists: MAD C (Germany), Aiko Nakagawa (Japan), Faith47 (South Africa), Krista Franklin (Chicago), and Diana McClure (NYC), to name a few. Only 60 out of 300 female urban artists were selected to participate in this special exhibit. Works will range from hand-styles and graphics to collage and abstract riffs—all expressing ideas on female identity, the urban habitat, life and love.
The exhibit will also launch the first publication from the YOUNITY collector’s book series. The Heart and Soul book will contain 60 works of art from all 60 artists including: Lady Pink, Martha Cooper and Swoon. This 5×8 inch, postcard-style flip book will be avilable in limited quantities(120) and will retail for $19.50.
Founded by artists Alice Mizrachi and Toofly, YOUNITY is the first ever international women’s urban contemporary art collective that provides female artists a global networking system that enables them to create art exhibitions, installations, books and a much needed archive of women’s urban contemporary art. Both the Heart and Soul book and exhibition artwork will be on view and for sale on-site at Alphabeta, as well as online at: www.theyounity.com
