We could not meet all of the artists, assistants, curator and team members of Newtopia, but some of them we did meet and talk to them, took pictures, videos, made interviews and generally enjoyed their ideas, presence and what they had to say about their works and human rights. Curious? In this category, you will find all that material that we shot, made and edited (and no, we are not pros at editing, so please forgive us the sometimes questionable quality!

    Dear Newtopia Directors:

    I am Ildikó Kalapács, a Hungarian American visual artist.

    I am working on a public sculpture project (through anon-profit organization) that reflects on women’s struggles during and after war. See attached website: It has a description of the project along with its goals (photos, videos, supporters).
    The ultimate goal is to put one replica on each continent as a destination site for all who have seen war and struggle with its aftermath.

    THE SCULPTURE
    The small bronze version of the sculpture was created by the Spokane artist Ildikó Kalapács in 2008, with grant funding from the non-profit Puffin Foundation, Inc.

    THE PROJECT
    The public sculpture titled Bearing is proposed to be cast life-size and placed in a prominent location in the greater Spokane, WA, USA, area. Cast by the internationally-known Walla Walla Foundry, Bearing will be a gift to the community from the donors of the Bearing Public Sculpture Project Fund.

    THE MESSAGE
    Bearing celebrates the strength of women across the world. This sculpture depicts a woman carrying a man, to represent the burden that war places on the human spirit. Dispossessed women carry the weight of family & spousal responsibilities; bearing the physical & emotional load of the aftermath of war.

    The Bearing Public Sculpture Project is a 501(c)3 organization.

    Please let me know if you are interested in covering this project.
    Thank you.

    Best,

    Ildikó Kalapács
