CreArt > Open Call for Creadores 2021 Exhibition (Spain)
The Creadores (Creators) Exhibition in Valladolid, Spain has been an essential platform for exposure to local contemporary artistic activity in recent years, an opportunity for several generations of artists from the city to show their work in a recognised and intimate space: the Las Francesas municipal hall. One of its many strengths has been how it has provided a kaleidoscopic, rich, and very extensive look at artists in the incipient stages of their careers, or while they are still developing.
For this new edition of Creadores 2021 the organisers aim to probe different ways of putting together this miscellany of works, reducing the number of artists but expanding their freedom and specific production for the exhibition. They would also like for it to be an opportunity to generate internal debate as a working group, and for this dialogue to reach and penetrate the public and the dynamic of the exhibition during its run.
The inclusion of a European artist from the CreArt network through an open invitation to intervene in the ‘Patio de las Tabas’ will help to expand the intervention beyond the walls of the venue and the local area.
This open call is addressed to artists born or resident in any city of the CreArt network: Genoa and Lecce, Italy; Liverpool, UK; Clermont - Ferrand and Rouen, France; Zagreb, Croatia (member of HDLU); Kaunas, Lithuania; Lublin and Katowice, Poland; Aveiro, Portugal; Skopje, Macedonia. Artists from Genoa should be under 35.
The organisation will cover:
Production expenses of the works of the selected artist.
Installation, transport and insurance costs of the works.
Dissemination and publicity of the exhibition, including a catalogue, photographic report and a promotional video.
Travel, accommodation and subsistence costs for the artist of the selected CreArt network, on the occasion of the installation and opening of the exhibition (maximum 4 days).
According to the evolution of the Covid19 crisis, the organisers might cover costs for a PCR test.
Each selected artist will receive €800 (including taxes) as a participation fee and up to €1500 (including taxes) for work production expenses and transport costs.
Deadline: 15 March 2021
