Maw's Broadsheet Project
BROADSIDE PROJECT (2006)
BY MAW SHEIN WIN
My good friend Maw just finished her residency at The Headlands Center for the Arts. During the residency Maw completed her beautiful Broadside Project (2006).
I was honored to be included as one of the collaborating artists. You can check out my collaboration with Maw here.
Maw's introduction to the project:
When I arrived at the Headlands Center for the Arts for my summer 2006 residency, I realized this was the perfect time and place for me to work on one of my long-time dream projects: to complete a collection of broadsides.
I decided to collaborate with artists I already knew as well as with artists I met at the Headlands. I asked some artists to create an artwork in response to poems I had written during the residency. Then I asked the other artists to create a piece with no set theme to which I would respond with a poem. The only parameter was that the dimensions of the artwork could not exceed 6 by 6 inches.
I would like to thank Tony Foster for his help with design and production and also extend my gratitude to the Headlands
Center for the Arts for this opportunity.
