POSTE: Lettera imbucata in Italia per ...Germania, Serbia, Italia... [Bruno Chiarlone fecit]


Mail-Art Opportunity - Hotel Drawings
Are you an artist, curator or creative practitioner who travels—either for your work, or for pleasure? Or do you make work about travel, transience, stationary or the ephemeral?
Inspired loosely by the nomadic German artist Martin Kippenberger’s ‘Hotel Drawings’, 20-21 Visual arts Centre in Scunthorpe UK is seeking artwork on (real or imaginary/imagined) mono-graphed hotel note paper, or small works on paper, that use Kippenberger's drawings and the artist's transient lifestyle as inspiration or point of departure.

The work can be as detailed or ephemeral as you choose; notes, doodles, sketches - they can relate to a place you have stayed, your reason for being there, your practice, or quite frankly whatever you choose.
We anticipate works being unframed and on paper, sized A4 or smaller. A maximum of three works can be submitted per artist.

We aim to include everything that is submitted, however anything deemed offensive, unsuitable for our visitors, or straying too far from the brief may not be included.

This is a mail-art style project and there is no fee available for appearing in this exhibition - however we will aim to return all artworks to the artists after the close of the exhibition if a return address is provided.

Exhibition dates: 13 January to 24 March 2018. Full documentation will be posted online.
Deadline 9 January 2018.

All work should be mailed to Dominic Mason, 20-21 Visual Arts Centre, Church Square, Scunthorpe, United Kingdom DN15 6TB to arrive before 9 January 2018—and include any relevant information (artist name, return address, title etc).

About Canton Museum of Art
With a collection of over 1,200 pieces of fine art, including both works on paper and ceramics, the Canton Museum of Art would have no trouble filling its 10,000 square-feet of gallery space on its own. Founded as the Little Civic Art Gallery during the days of the Depression and the WPA, the museum has evolved into an impressive collection of American artworks from the 19th, 20th, and 21st centuries. However, the curators aren't interested in keeping things static. They dedicate portions of their museum to national touring exhibits, local artists, and community events. The museum also hosts the School of Art which features more than 20 studio art classes for students of all ages, scheduling sessions three times a year.
