2012 Project

Ten years ago TransCultural Exchange's launched one of the largest democratic, global art projects in the world: 'The Coaster Project, Destination: The World'.

For that project, more than 99 artists transcended geographical, political and cultural boundaries to stage 99+ exhibitions throughout the world. Afterwards, all 10,000+ art works were given away in the guise of "coasters" at bars, cafes and restaurants.

To celebrate, TransCultural Exchange will stage a 10 year anniversary exhibit and give-away of 'The Coaster Project, Destination: The World' at Toronto's '2012 Culture Works Festival,' which is part of the BIG on Bloor Festival. The original "Coaster Project" artists have already been asked to contribute; and, we would like to add to that roster.

If you would like to participate, please send a coaster sized artwork (4"x4" or 10cm x 10cm) to:
TransCultural Exchange
516 E. 2nd Street #30
Boston, MA 02127
ATTN: Mary Sherman

Coasters MUST arrive no later than July 10, 2012. Please include your mailing and email address with your submission; so that we can send you updates on the project.

All coaster/artworks will be exhibited and all coasters will be given out at the festival. Festival-goers can take one; and/or make one of their own for someone else to take. In addition, TransCultural will print out cards, explaining the original project.

The front of the card will say:
TransCultural Exchange's
10th Year Anniversary
of
The Coaster Project, Destination: The World

The back of the card will say:
