What happens if my proposal is chosen?
All submissions will be reviewed and selected by the curator: Juliana Lauletta.
Artworks can be selected before the deadline.
One artwork by each artist will be selected and exhibited.
Only the selected artists will receive the payment link and will have 3 days after selection to pay the participation fee and secure their spot.
Payments can be made through PayPal or Credit/Debit Card.
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 in Brazil.

The files must be cropped A4 or square size 20x20cm (8x8 inches) and sent via email when requested.
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.
