Engasga Gato Collective opens 1st International Exhibition of postal art with open calls!
Call for Mail Art
In this period when we live inside our houses, in corners, bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms and basements, real or imagined, there is a possibility of a stronger and more intimate connection with our body. Life out there seems little to move in contrast to our always-active mind, which needs to slow its pace to understand what is going on. Thus, Coletivo Engasga Gato launches its 1st international call for art entitled “CONTACT”, seeking to bring to light the perceptions of artists from around the world in times of social isolation with works that affect the themes of home, body and memory.
For this, taking into account the suppression of postal services in different locations and the social isolation self imposed or imposed by its government, we at Coletivo Engasga Gato seek to adapt to the reality imposed by COVID-19 by bringing a call for 100% digital mail art. Therefore, the work must be sent to the email firstname.lastname@example.org until 06/04/2020, obeying a maximum image file size (.jpg .png) of 15MB, designed to be inserted in the body of the email (no attached) together with the title of the work, year, name of the artist and employed technique.
The works that are sent until the deadline will be exposed virtually in the Vertical Gallery, on the coletivoengasgagato.wordpress.com website where they will be online for a period of one month after their initial date.
By submitting the work, the artist agrees that it is part of the collection of Coletivo Engasga Gato.
