  • description

    At this 2020’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous editions. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.

  • description

    Quinta da Cruz - Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located at Viseu – Portugal, and was created as a dynamic center for art, culture and identity. It is a cultural space oriented towards the exhibition of contemporary art, to the development of artistic practices, and is perceived as an engine of local artistic promotion. Intended for public enjoyment, culture and leisure, it is integrated into a wide green space of excellence and remarkable biodiversity.

    The MailArt Open Call is an annual project that promotes a contemporary art form of expression that emerged as a correspondence exchanged between artists during the 60s and manifested itself as an alternative to the conventional means of art exhibitions on the 70s. It integrates the strategic line - territory and identity, of this space and its relationship with the community and the city, fulfilling the objective of constituting a small format collection.

    In 2020, Viseu chooses cinema and photography as motives and expressions of cultural valorization, territorial marketing and tourism promotion, guiding programs and projects under the theme, "Viseu 2020 - Luz, Câmara, Ação" [ Viseu 2020 - Light, Camera, Action ].

    Quinta da Cruz – Centro de Arte Contemporânea challenges once again, artists and everyone interested in MailArt to send their artwork through the Postal Service, for our third edition, under the theme "Viseu 2020 - Light, Camera, Action". #viseusemfiltros

    We wait for your drawings, collages, stamps, visual poetry, among others, at Quinta da Cruz - Centro de Arte Contemporânea. Only artwork received via snail mail will be displayed.

    Printing techniques were never far apart from the art world as some might think. Woodcut, typography, silkscreen, lithograph, stencil, rubber stamps, 3D printing, digital printing, ... are a short list of various means of reproduction within our reach that are also explored for their artistic expression. Although some of these media may have arisen purely for the sake of reproduction and others with marketing intentions ... others had arise with a purely artistic vision. However, none of these techniques, sooner or later, escaped artists who use them for creating multiples or for their material expressiveness.

    It is therefore with this call and with this question in mind that we invite you to question multiples in artistic creation and printing techniques as expression, either through artworks or written statements.

    On our previous curated mailart and artbymail open call and exhibition entitled "Hate Mail? for ya Fat F#uck", we've dealt with similar content as we've shown Claudio Parentela's artwork in the form of digital prints of his own digital collages... in a way raising the question: if physical prints of artwork meant to prevail only among the digital world may or not be considered art? We've also laid out a consonant scheme while presenting rough quality prints from scans of Rachelline Centomo's personal international mailart open call "La Muerte / Mientras la Vida nos Dure" that had happened at Mexico the previous year.

    Exhibitions on tour through Portugal are ALREADY confirmed. We'll keep you updated by email. There will be a digital book to be shared and spread around free of charge to all artists and partners.

    ? what's the deal with www.mailart.pt

    like it or not, www.mailart.pt lists all active open calls sorted out by due date, as well as exhibitions, artists, and links of interest ... but it may end up being much more

    only after starting this listing, at 01_august_2018, i did realize the extraordinary amount of new open calls coming up all the time ... almost 20 new ones per month! and that's only those that i can grasp... from automatic bot searches, constant research, direct emailing and from those special people that keep me updated on what is going on on the community


    // check the FAQ section to learn how to contribute to this archive and how to submit artwork to the listed open calls


    // thanks for your support
