ARTWORKS

  • The theme is OPEN. 
  • 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.
  • Please resize your images to A3 or square size 30x30cm (12x12 inches) or provide the link for the videos.
  • 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!

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.
