ANUAL INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR YOUNG ARTISTS
From the 5th of August to the 15th of September
OPENING Tuesday 5th of August from 8 - 11 pm
As is becoming a habit at the Gallery during the month of August, we will be presenting the exhibition with the artists selected for the International Call.
The call is born with the firm commitment to promote and to support the artistic creation, as well as to promote all those new media that shape our contemporaneousness.
Like every year, the level of participation has been quite high, with a total of 630 portfolios, many being from Latin-America and Europe. The selection has like always, been based on the criteria of internationality, quality, professionalism and above all originality that has nothing to do with nationality, gender or style.
This year being the tenth anniversary, we wanted to make a small change in the selection, that in past edition has been more numerous in the order of 30-35 artists. So the number of artists in this edition has been reduced to 12, in order to give room to more spacious projects, and to give the artists the possibility to develop their individual creations to a larger extent.
Through this call, our intention is to get in touch with the new generation of artists and to give them the opportunity to develop their work in a professional environment. At the same time this is an opportunity for the gallery to know by first hand, what is going on in the area of the most contemporary art. As a result, creating a line of collaboration with new artists, that can end up forming part of the group of the artists of the gallery. We would like to thank all those that throughout the years have presented their interest in the gallery and to express our satisfaction with the quality of the presented works and portfolios. Finally and although we have to admit that it has been very difficult to leave out proposals that we found interesting, encouraging those to try again in future calls, we can say that the result is very varied and of very high standards.
