    Consider the themes of belonging and home whether cultural, social, or creative. We want you to share your home with us. This exhibition will present diverse perspectives, including examinations of the land and the urban, industrialized environment and personal reflections on one’s home environment. This theme can be interpreted in any way you think is appropriate. We will only accept original works, no copies, and no ordinary manufactured postcards unless it is over 80% modified by the artist.

  • show address Museu Quinta da Cruz | Estrada de São Salvador | 3510-784 São Salvador | Viseu, PORTUGAL
  • description

    Quinta da Cruz - Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located in Viseu, Portugal, and is a cultural space oriented to the exhibition of contemporary art and to the development of artistic practices. It’s a space destined to public enjoyment, culture and leisure, inserted in a green space of excellence and a remarkable biodiversity.

    In 2019, Viseu assumed the motto of “National Destination of Gastronomy” and that is why, for this challenge, the theme "Food, Wine & Culture" was selected.

    We launch an invitation to artists and all interested in MailArt to send their works, through the Postal Service, and join the 2nd edition of this event. Only works received through traditional mail will be displayed. We look forward for your drawings, collages, stamps and visual poetry, among others, at Quinta da Cruz!

    As part of the reopening of the Atelier d'Akané and in the framework of the Open Days of Artists Workshops of Pas de Calais in October 2019, we propose an exhibition of letters in Postal Art.

    These letters will be yours :) It's your turn to write to us in any form whatsoever. You will create the exhibition :)

    What matters is the envelope that can take the most diverse and original forms :)

    You do not have to write a text, or a word . It's really the "container" that counts :). But of course the texts will be read with great pleasure.

  • description

    From the infinite universe to the infinite sea, that’s an invitation to all the artists to submerge into the abyss of a magnificent world.We are offering you a very important chance to talk about a problem that plagues the entire planet. The sea is suffocating because of the plastic pollution. Oceans cover most part of our Earth, they’re fundamental for us to survive, they regulate the climate, help the plants’ growth. A surprise is coming from the sea, but it’s a death sentence. We’re all in danger but we can still try to do something. Think about it. WE’RE NOT THE PLASTIC MEN. Fortunately we’re not yet on a boat and closed into a bottle with no escape. Let’s save ourselves from the monster that plastic have became through the years.

We are not critical and we do not make a critical or preference speech: the only complaint can come only from the Post Office itself and from those who work there, which is another reason to explore the rules and, why not, personal tastes.

  • description

    The sea, at the same time that it nourishes man, animals and fishes, swallows swimmers, seafarers and migrants who venture into freedom.

    The sun, fire in the sky, gives life, but a fire in a tree, can become the hell itself.

    Human can be the one who creates life, but with the war, fights and choices, takes it back.

  • description

    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.

  • 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.
