OPEN CALL - PARATISSIMA SKOPJE
Contineo 2020 (Association for the promotion and support of culture) from Skopje, Macedonia in partnership with YLDA (Young People for Local Development Association) from Turin, Italy is honored to announce the First Fair of Contemporary Art – Paratissima Skopje which will be held from 13 – 15 June, 2014 in the Youth Cultural Center, Skopje. This year’s edition of Paratissima Skopje is dedicated to the topic of “Connections”.
We would like to inform you that during the period of May 9 – June 1, 2014 the open call for applications will be available to all participants interested in Paratissima. The call for applications is available on the official website of Paratissima (http://paratissima.it) and the Facebook page of the event: https://www.facebook.com/paratissimaskopje.
Guidelines for participation:
There is no pre-selection for participation at the fair, all authors are entitled to participation – regardless of the format they use to express themselves. The format of Paratissima is simple: together with the artists who want to support the initiative, the event gives visibility to the artists and artworks and supports their promotion. Paratissima targets everyone, but it aims to give support and promotion to young and emerging artists, while it gives affirmed artists an innovative context for collaboration in a dynamic and energetic environment. The participants and their works will be exhibited in the Youth Cultural Center with the help and coordination of the fair’s art director and curator. Every author has absolute autonomy over the choice and technique of their artwork.
Paratissima gives all authors the opportunity to be exhibited without any previous selection; however, at the end of the event, a selection of up to 10 artists will be made. The selected artists will have the opportunity to exhibit their work at Paratissima in Turin, in November 2014.
Paratissima Skopje is realized with the institutional support of the City of Turin, Turin’s Chamber of Commerce, the Youth Cultural Center in Skopje and the City of Skopje.
