OPEN CALL 1060 PITCH #2 PRINT & PICTURES

Are you looking for a space and a budget to show your work in an exhibition? Then this might be your chance to create a (solo) exhibition in GC Pianofabriek, with a working allowance of €1000. During 1060 Pitch, we invite local artists/ designers to present their work and pitch ideas for such an exhibition during an open talk. This second edition will be a collaboration with Picture festival centered around Print & Pictures. We are therefore looking for 3 illustrators or graphic artists to pitch their projects. We are especially curious to learn more about the vision of local artists on illustration and printmaking.
Three artists will be selected among all applicants to actually present their work and pitch their exhibition during an artist talk on 26/03 in Pianofabriek. The audience will be invited to engage in a conversation with the artists, and in the course of the evening, every one of the spectators will cast a preferential vote for one of the three pitched projects. The artist with the most votes will receive the allowance and will be invited to show their work in the exhibition space of Pianofabriek during autumn 2022.
