Open call for participation in public art exhibition
'AA2 / Katharina has paid us a visit, but she didn't stay too long' is an
exhibition organized by med-i-kids and CSDVA, Zagreb.
Main theme is Appropriation in Art, aka AA2.
Host space is Alternative Cultural Center Medika in Zagreb, where at any
given moment of day and night there is certain number of visitors. The
exhibition is envisaged as one big hybrid organism composed of many smaller
site-specific installations and artworks. Specificity of the space as
ex-factory of medicaments and its very rustic and ruined condition dictates
some of the guidelines in curating the exhibition. Medika is place ideal for
street art, public art, graffities, murals, but not exclusively.
What we want to see are:
- projects that creatively engage with audience with the humorous artistic
intention behind the artwork
- appropriation art, in the best use of its term - art which respects all
four cornerstones of fair use term
- art works as reinterpretations or 'Hommage' to an artist who really
influenced your work
- art works made of recycled items
Media: No media restrictions
Concept of the exhibition allows that artists whose work will be selected
for the show can visit the AKC Medika by their own means. Others will be
invited to collaborate online with med-i-kids art group and instruct them
how to realize their works. In general, artists are responsble for sending
us their work. We can compensate postal costs till some extend, on basis
first comes-first served. All participating artists will receive full-color
catalogue of the show and DVD, which will be made during the production of
