The project has paired US visual artists with Europe Readr authors, inviting them to depict their own perception of the works read in a variety of media. The artworks will be on display in a re-designed storefront gallery, encouraging dialogue on inclusive and sustainable living on both continents.
The project "A Window to Europe: Through Literature and Art" officially launched on 27 September 2021 with an exhibition of the artwork of Hoesy Corona, inspired by Lukas Juliger's "Unfollow" and Alanna Reeves, in response to Roser Capdevila's "The City". The series of short exhibitions featuring eleven visual artists from the Washington D.C. region will be running until 23 January 2022. The featured artists include Hoesy Corona, Alanna Reeves, Mike Thron, Michal Gavish, Julie Wills, MK Bailey, Antonio McAfee, Emily Fussner, Stephanie Williams, Lionel Frazier White III, and Sobia Ahmad.
The featured exhibiting artists’ works will explore a diverse range of themes, including vulnerability, the natural world, identity, the competing needs of business and ecology, nostalgia, and the limitations of our physical bodies.
