THE CATALOG

Special thanks to Boston Schoolyard Funders Collaborative for their generosity, which helped launch this catalog.

Housed in an elegant box, 100 beautiful international postcards make up this stunning catalog for The Tile Project, Destination: The World, a project sponsored by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Documenting TransCultural Exchange’s inspiring project for which over 100 artists united the world with tiles, this catalog can be kept intact or sent across the globe as handsome stationery.

In both instances, the catalog reflects the collective goal of the 100
Tile Project artists. These artists, from over 40 countries, donated more than 2000 tiles to 22 world sites to create 22 new, site specific permanent art works as symbols of international goodwill. Their resulting multicultural structures now dot the world landscape from Taipei to Toronto, Boston to Bombay and 18 other sites in between.

Included in the catalog are gorgeous 6” x 6” postcard reproductions of each artist’s tile along with his or her biography, cultural notations and space for correspondence on the reverse.

Also gathered together in an accompanying pamphlet are essays by Harvard Professor Nolan Bowie, MIT Professor Alex Slocum and TransCultural Exchange’s director Mary Sherman, commenting on the project’s ideals, art’s role in our increasing global society and the importance of context in understanding a work of art.

Affordably priced, this limited edition catalog is a tribute to an
extraordinary group of artists’ efforts and their remarkable monuments of global cooperation. READY FOR ORDERING JUNE 2006.
