Madonna Names Katy Perry As January Guest Curator For Art For Freedom‏

first_imgMadonna has confirmed Katy Perry as the first guest curator for Art for Freedom in 2014 for the month of January.Madonna Names Katy Perry As Guest Curator for Art for FreedomKaty will collaborate with Madonna to select daily submissions to be showcased on artforfreedom.com. Since launching in September 2013, Art for Freedom has received over 3,000 submissions globally via artforfreedom.com and its social media platforms.“Art can change the world, but first it needs to be seen and heard‎,” said Madonna. “Katy Perry and I are asking you to be that voice and show us how you define freedom in 2014. This will be a year of monumental changes for human rights, and we want you to be a part of that change. Let us hear from you.”“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. “Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”As part of the Art For Freedom initiative, Katy Perry will work with Madonna to select one artist during the month of January whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights. Madonna will then award a $10,000 grant to a nonprofit organization of the winning artist’s choice. All projects must be focused on the values of Art For Freedom. David Blaine served as Art for Freedom’s guest curator for the month of December.Launched in September 2013, Art For Freedom is a global digital initiative, led by Madonna in partnership with VICE Media, designed to fuel free speech – to respond, address and protest persecution and discrimination around the world. It is an online public art project encouraging people to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution, in the form of video, music, poetry, and photography. Public submissions become part of the Art For Freedom website: contributors can join the project by uploading original artwork or tagging original posts #artforfreedom. The project was launched with the film secretprojectrevolution, co-directed by Madonna and Steven Klein.last_img read more

Mena Suvari Blasts Cruel Down Industry in New PETA Ad

first_imgWith a swirl of bloody feathers encircling her face, vegan American Woman and American Beauty star Mena Suvari puts the down industry on blast in a brand-new ad campaign for PETA that proclaims, “Cruelty to Animals Gets Me Down. Down Production Is Agony for Ducks. Please Don’t Buy It.”In an accompanying video spot, Suvari recalls first learning about the way in which birds suffer for down: “I just remember sitting in my home, and I was watching one of the videos showing these geese who were having their feathers ripped out while they were still alive, and they were screaming,” she says. “And it was really, really horrifying.” She immediately threw her feather-filled comforters and pillows in the trash. “I could not accept myself after watching that video, laying my head down on these pillows and going to sleep that night,” she explains.That’s why Suvari has also sent a letter to Bed Bath & Beyond urging the company to stop selling bedding and other items made with down, and on Friday, she’ll question shareholders on PETA’s behalf during the company’s annual meeting, asking when it plans to ban the cruelly obtained material. Noting that birds used for down are often clamped upside down by workers who violently yank out their feathers by the fistful and hastily sew up their wounds with a needle and thread — and no painkillers — she writes, “Your company already offers significantly more cruelty-free, allergen-free, and down-free options—so ditching down is a feasible and smart next step…. I know Bed Bath & Beyond would be an inspiring model for other businesses if it made this savvy, compassionate change.”PETA — whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear or abuse in any other way” — has documented that down-industry workers in China left sick and injured chicks, geese, and ducks to die slowly. Dead birds were found decaying in crates and ponds or tossed outside like trash.Suvari previously teamed up with PETA to call for a ban on fur farming in Estonia.last_img read more
