3. ART IN QUARANTINE // OPEN CALL FOR E-MAIL ART & ART BY E-MAIL

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 recently declared as pandemic by World Health Organization, and the consequent application of quarantine measures by many countries, portuguese artist collective wr3ad1ng d1g1t5 announces the call for e-mail art / art by e-mail “ART IN QUARANTINE”.
Having in mind the potential of this initiative to constitute a unique and artistic historical archive, as well as its interdisciplinary nature in the promotion of bridges between arts and health, we invite you, during the next 40 days, to send your contribution (textual/visual, sound and/or multimedia), via the following e-mail: artinquarantine@gmail.com
Presenting an alternative chain of transmission, this initiative is a laboratory for sharing, reflection and artistic creation on a critical moment in terms of public health, on a global scale, and with visible cultural, social and economic impact for us all.
All contributions will be gathered in a digital gallery hosted by wr3ad1ng d1g1t5 (wreading-digits.com).
The files to be sent cannot exceed 10 MB and must be identified with the respective title (if any), authorship and provenance.
