Live The Art - Puerto Rico

Many of our art museums and cultural institutions, as well as our visual artists suffered damages in their facilities, workshops and art projects, leaving cultural activity in our art scene paralyzed.

In these moments of cultural crisis and uneasiness, the Asociación de Artistas Plásticos de Puerto Rico Inc. (the Association of Visual Artists of Puerto Rico in English), desire that the visual arts part of our culture are rehabilitated quickly in the local and international sphere. La Asociación de Artistas Plásticos Rico Inc. calls for the international community to participate in our campaign, Mail Arts under the title "Live the Art", in solidarity and celebration of Puerto Rican artistic and cultural expressions.

Our campaign seeks to demonstate that regardless of an natural or man-made adversities, art and culture will always manifest  and shine for the enjoyment of humanity.
All submissions will be published and announced in a blog that will contain all exhibitions that we will show in different libraries, cultural centers, universities, art galleries and museums around Puerto Rico inconsideration of their specific availability of the facilities.

HOTEL DRAWINGS - UK

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).
