Call for submissions: The Fresh Milk ArtBoard

By Fresh Milk Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 Categories: ARC Partners, Call for Submissions, Updates
 

The Fresh Milk Art Platform, Barbados, shares a regional open call for Caribbean visual artists to submit digital pieces for consideration to be displayed on the Fresh Milk ArtBoard. In an effort to generate interest in work by contemporary artists and share it with the public, Fresh Milk uses the ArtBoard as a ‘public gallery’, as it is located by a busy road on the outskirts of the active dairy farm that houses the studio. The successful applicant will receive a fee of $1,000.00 BBD ($500 USD) for their work. Deadline for submissions is Friday, July 21, 2017.

- The work, a statement about the proposed work (no more than 350 words) and a bio (no more than 250 words) should be sent to . This can also be done via WeTransfer or Dropbox

The deadline for submission of works is July 21, 2017. The selected piece will be on display from August, 2017, which coincides both with Fresh Milk’s 6th Anniversary as well as the hosting of the regional festival CARIFESTA XIII in Barbados, and will be on display for a minimum of 6 months.
