Why do you charge a Participation Fee?
We are an artist-led, self-funded, independent arts organisation and we work hard to create opportunities for artists.

We have been expanding and our projects are successfully growing. We have been applying for funding and hopefully in the near future we can lower the participation fee. Until then, we just need to keep the lights on.

We prefer to share the costs of the exhibitions with the artists instead of charging for a 'Submission Fee' that artists often pay just to be rejected. Also, for emerging artists is quite difficult to get selected when there are a lot applications. This way, artists can apply and invest only after being selected.
Do you have any advice on how to price my print?
This advice was taken from the Printspace 'Selling Art Online' guide. For more info: https://www.theprintspace.co.uk/how-to-price-your-online-art-prints/
How should I send my artwork file after being selected?
The participating artists will be asked to send a high resolution file of their artwork to be printed and framed in Brazil.

The files must be cropped A3 or square size 30x30cm (12x12 inches) and sent via email when requested.

Resolution for printing: 300dpi
- A3 size: 420 x 297 mm OR 3508 x 4961 pixels
- Square size: 300 x 300 mm (12x12 inches) OR 3543 x 3543 pixels

No borders and no watermarks please.

File formats .jpeg, .tiff or .pdf (for graphics)
Can I send my original artwork for the exhibition?
Only if you are in Brazil. Customs in Brazil is a nightmare. So to avoid any issues we only accept original work from inside the country and the artists have to bring it to the venue one week before the exhibition starts. Please contact us directly to arrange that.
What happens to my print after the exhibition?
We will keep the print in our archive for future opportunities.

Some future exhibitions will be only for artists that we have already worked with and their prints are in our storage.

The prints will be individually wrapped in cellophane sleeves (labeled and with contact info) and placed in an artwork rack for the next couple of exhibitions.

After that, they will be safely stored in the curator's studio.

If the artist prefer not to keep it in our storage, we can destroy it.
Can you ship my print to my country after the exhibition?
Sorry, no.

We tried that in the past and it didn't work out. International postal service from Brazil to overseas is expensive (around £50) and unreliable. It tracks only inside the country. So we are not offering that option anymore.

If you would like to have a fine-art print of your work, we recommend The Printspace in London. Good prices and they ship internationally.
Can I choose where my print will be hanged?
Unfortunately, no.

The artworks are allocated based on size, orientation, technical specifications, colours, etc.

The curator carefully plans the placement of each work to ensure consistency throughout the show.

Please note that the decisions are final and not open for discussion.
