ARTWORKS

  • Open theme
  • Send min. 3 - max. 5 images (from different artworks). Show your best work! 
  • Artworks can be in any medium, but the artworks must be in DIGITAL FORMAT, meaning that paintings, illustrations, mix-media, sculptures and other formats will have to be scanned or photographed and sent to us. 
  • Short films and videos of performances are also accepted but they must be under 10min long.
  • Artists from all nationalities, backgrounds and of all styles are welcome to submit. Collaborations are also welcome.

  • We will print and mount all the selected images in Brazil with the consent of the artists. 

The artists will not have to worry about anything. 

No crating, no shipping, no customs. We will take care of every detail.

Exhibiting your art in a different country could not have been easier!

PARTICIPATION FEE

  • FREE Submission (send min. 3 - max. 5 images)

Participation fee (for retangular 30x40cm, square 30x30cm or short video)

  • 1 artwork - £80 (around US$100)

SUBMISSIONS DEADLINE: Thursday 07 March 2024

Please check the FAQ if you have any questions.

SELECTION PROCESS

All submissions will be reviewed and selected by the curator: Juliana Lauletta.

Artworks can be selected before the deadline.

Please note that the decisions are final and we are unable to offer feedback.

PAYMENT METHODS

Only the selected artists will receive the payment link by email and will have 3 days after selection to pay the participation fee and secure their spot. 

Payments can be made through PayPal, Credit/Debit Card and Mercado Pago (Brazil).

REFUND POLICY

After submitting the form and paying the participation fee, the artists will be part of the show and we will hold their spaces. If the artist cancel close to the date, it is nearly impossible for us to schedule another artist in their place. Therefore, there are NO REFUNDS after making the payment.

SALES

Only artists present at the Private View/Opening event in Brazil can have their artworks up for sale. 

As a cultural centre, our role differs from that of a commercial gallery; hence, we abstain from participating in the sales process between artists and collectors. Should a collector express interest in a piece, the artist will be directly connected to them by the curator, facilitating independent negotiations without any commission from us. Being artists, we recognise the value of establishing direct connections between artists and collectors.
