                This summer we are holding a retrospective of the Palma d’Oro winners (Peynet, Mordillo, Quino, Cavandoli, De Angelis etc…) and also invite cartoonists to draw on “The world of Automobile, today and in the future” to compare with the drawings on the same subject showed in the year 1957 and 1994.! I


                This invitation is reserved for professional cartoonists, illustrators and artists.

                During the month of August, as part of the "International Humor Show 2022: The Retrospective", two selections of car drawings will also be presented. One dates back to 1957, when the imposed theme principle was first introduced, and the other to 1994, when the car was chosen as the subject of the year for the second time.

                Today we are curious to discover how humorists interpret, in 2022, this essential medium that evolves over time.

                For this reason the Associazione Salone Internazionale Umorismo® a non profit organisation, solicits your imagination to drawings on the theme: "THE WORLD OF THE AUTOMOBILE: TODAY AND IN THE FUTURE"

                To partecipate: all you have to do is fill in the participation form below, including the required biography (500 characters maximum) by June 1st 2022 at midnight UTC.

                once the participation request has been received and verified, we will activate a Google Drive folder and we will notify you of the url to access it so that you can upload the digital files no later than June 15, 2022 at midnight UTC.

                The works, limited to three per author, must measure a maximum of 25x35 cm, Tiff format, at 300 dpi.

International Exhibition of Art and Architecture Metamorfosart #4

 After successfully holding the international art and architecture exhibition "Metamorfosart #3" last year in 2021, which was attended by 200 artists from 31 countries, the Islamic Art and Architecture Study Program of UIN Walisongo Semarang will again hold a similar event in collaboration with artists and the art community.  We are very diverse and appreciate your participation in the exhibition.

                This year's Metamorfosart raises the theme of spirituality, moderation and peace.

                The choice of theme is aligned with the current world cultural situation which is still plagued by conflict, hostility, violence, and the threat of economic recession and nuclear war.

                The theme will become the center of the field of interpretation, spirit, and inspiration for artists in the creative process of creating works of art.

                This year's Metamorfosart #4 was held by the Islamic Art and Architecture Study Program by involving artists and art communities from Semarang, Solo, and Yogyakarta who have been active in the arts.

                The togetherness of local artists and art communities in this international exhibition held by the UIN Walisongo Campus shows a positive synergy between the campus world and the arts community which seems to be a trend in the practice of contemporary art that is increasingly diverse and rich.

                Starting from the Metamorfosart #4 series, which was launched on Sunday, April 10, 2022, in the form of an activity to draw an architectural sketch of the magnificent UIN Walisongo Rectorate building.  This event will be followed up with a similar event, namely nyeket with several objects of worship in the city of Semarang which will be facilitated by the Mayor of Semarang on May 14, 2022.

                The works of these artists will also be displayed in an international exhibition at the end of May at the Nusantara Gallery – FUHUM  UIN Walisongo.
