Follow your Art: Contemporary Street Art & Culture Exhibition Call
Follow your Art: Contemporary Street Art & Culture exhibition, now in its second year, is once again being hosted by the COLLECTIVE. It celebrates the production and cultural influence of youth cultures.
Skateboarding, graffiti, tattoos, comics and design have not only affected fashion, music, literature, and film, they have influenced a generation of young artists who identify with the lifestyle and counter-culture stance of these creative art forms born from the street. Follow your Art hopes to include music, album covers, tattoos, skateboards and “zines” that reveal the spirit and vitality of street culture and its ever expanding influence on the youth of tomorrow.
The unifying traits of these artists, whose styles still lie outside the world of conventional gallery art, include an interest in pop culture iconography and a nonsensical do-it-yourself attitude. Follow your art traces the early influences on this new generation of Artists, Filmmakers, Illustrators, Graffiti writers, Cartoonists and Designers, and explores the broader cultural trends that make their work what it is today.
Follow your art aims to offer each artist an outlet to express their personal perspectives to enable them to engage in an intercultural dialogue and expose themselves to other sub cultural diversities within our city and beyond. Have some fun whilst expressing who you are through your respected art forms!
Artworks handed in on time will be reviewed by the COLLECTIVE. The selected artworks will be displayed and put on sale as part of a collective showing. Deadline for submissions is 27 July 2012, 5pm.
SUBMISSION FEE IS R25.00 PER ARTWORK and 38% commission if it sells.
