Artists specialised within the Abstract Expressionism genre, working in any material (paper, sculpture, painting, photography) are encouraged to submit their work for consideration for the upcoming publication “Abstract Expressionism Today Vol. 1”.
The hard-cover publication will be made available to professionals, collectors, institutions and art-lovers during the 57th Biennale in Venice.
Each artists may select up to 3 double)pages of or their work. A curatorial text based on their artist-statement is translated into two languages (English, German or Italian). The book is published in on non-gloss art paper, hard cover with a dust-jacket.
Since Arte Ponte is an NGO, our intention is to make the book predominantly complimentary for selected, key individuals. Due to limited funds, we can only sponsor a percentage of the production costs. Hence, artists will be requested to help by paying a fee. The fees will cover the writers, graphic designers, translators, administration and sales staff and the production costs plus air freight to Venice. Included are two complimentary copies of the book which will be shipped to the artist, including postage costs.
Deadline submission is 10th May 2017. Details are in the application form here.
