SMACH is an international call for artists for a stunning open-air exhibition in the Dolomites (a range of the Alps in northern Italy), now in its fourth edition.
The theme of this edition is “Heimat”.
Heimat is indicative of a form of identity much stronger than a single word can transmit. It does not just refer to a place, but rather a set of shared and spontaneous values which have to do with life from infancy. The mention of which triggers a positive sensation in us when one thinks of our origins, thinks of our identity, or, on the contrary, the sense of solitude and impotency we feel when the loss of such tie is hinted at.
The artwork, installations and artistic interventions will be realized by individual artists or groups of artists. The artworks will be exhibited in places of historical and cultural interest in the municipalities of San Martin de Tor and Mareo. This project aims are to deepen peoples interest for art, as well as bringing awareness to the region.
The artists have no boundaries for the design and the size of the work.
Download the registration form and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org together with visual material of your artwork (photographs, drawings, renderings, etc.).
Ten selected artworks and projects will receive a prize of 2,000 EUR (approx. 2,275 USD) each (net after taxes and deductions, where applicable). The artists will grant to the organizers the chance to purchase the exhibited works when the project SMACH ends in September.
