International Curated Art Exhibition “Re-Cognition” “Re-Conhecimento” ART-MAP is happy to announce the call for its second big international art show in Ponte de Lima! On the behalf of an art event, the project proposes the artists the discovering of amazing places, quality exposition spaces and thankful audiences. The exhibition will take place during the months of June and July and August 2016 and occupy several locations: the authentic historical buildings, which have been converted into art galleries by the city, are now welcoming contemporary art. Charismatic spaces, such as a medieval prison, tower, a castle and an old chapel have acquired new functions as exposition pavilions but the historical charms still gasp trough. We are expecting artworks which search beyond the literal significations and communicate through the symbolic structure of images, indices and metaphors and contain emotional presence. Artists are proposed to reflect how the truth is revealed trough imagination, about the traces of the archaic in the present, and how reminiscence and experiences transform and manifest themselves in poetic shapes. Submission deadline 5th of May 2016, submission is free. Artists may submit up to 3 artworks. During the selection we will also consult the artist´s web sites, in some cases we might ask for the other available artworks.
