The Children-Spectators exhibition 2022 – 4th edition

Now at its fourth edition, the Exhibition is part of the European project Mapping, a map on the aesthetics of performing arts for early years. One of Mapping’s goals is to create a high-quality interaction between performing arts and the world of illustration and children’s literature. There is a big difference between illustrating moments of theatre, dance or circus, and filtering those moments, those fragments, seeing them through the eyes or the emotions of a child, focusing on the richness of the moments in which a child-spectator captures images, sounds and words that feed their imagination. The exhibition is created in collaboration with Bologna Children’s Book Fair, who launched the Call for Proposals 2022, collecting 721 illustrations from artists in 65 Countries.

The 36 illustrations selected for the 2022 edition were created by the following artists:
Anand Aditi (India), Antonelli Monia (Italy), Blankenaar Dale (South Africa), Broucke Enzo (France), Carlini Lucia (Italy), Centomo Silvia (Italy), Cepleanu Diana Margareta (Romania), Clay Judith (Germany), Dai Wei-Chun (Taiwan), Fortino Montserrat (Spain), Gramegna Elide (Portugal), Hernandez Monica (Italy), Hsieh Chia (Taiwan), Inoue Chihiro (Japan), Javier Christina (Philippines), Khojasteh Parisa (Finland), Kim Yu (South Korea), Kwon Dowon (South Korea), Laksman Martin (Argentina), Lin Chien-Ju (Taiwan), Lopez Anabella (Brazil), Lu Thea (China), Martin Del Campo Pretelin Daniela (Mexico), Matak Mohamad Hossein (Iran), Mediati Ambra (Italy), Montes Laura (Spain), Negrini Carla (Italy), Pareschi Daniela (Italy), Pieropan Cristina (Italy), Raineri Chiara (Italy), Roverato Marta (Italy), San Vicente Luis (Mexico), Seidova Olga (Ukraine), Toyota Tomoko (Japan), Utsunomiya Kotone (Japan), Villagrán Jazmin and Ordóñez Laura (Guatemala).
