GRAPHICALL 2018

===Open CALL FOR GRAPHIC artists===

For the International printmaking exposium

===Deadline 22nd September===
GRAPHICALL announces its 3rd annual juried exhibition devoted to prints. This year we welcomed applications from all over the globe bringing together a diverse representation of the print world today.

In December 2018 GRAPHICALL will exhibit Dutch and International artists working in the medium of printmaking alongside a series of workshops and a symposium hosting guest speakers from the field of contemporary printmaking. With this initiative we promote a discussion on what printmaking is today and encourage a reconsideration of the graphic mediums as versatile and multifaceted.

Last year a submission of a range of print-related media among which work on paper 2D, 3D, animation, installation were accepted, gathering the most diverse and interesting print collection.

GRAPHICALL will be hosted by 4bid gallery situated in the multimedia cultural centre OT301, Amsterdam. Inaugurated 2 years ago in December and on its 3rd edition this fall, GRAPHICALL strives to manifest itself as a key event for printmakers, unmissable in the arts calendar. It will run over a long weekend (December 12th to 16th) that includes the Exhibition Vernissage with introduction speech by initiator and project coordinator Irina Baldini, talks by guest artist speakers about Printmaking techniques and the way these are applied in their work, workshops led by practicing specialists accessible to experienced and inexperienced, Exhibition Finissage with presentation of the GRAPHICatalogue 2017, a publication collecting the documentation of last year’s exposium, featuring the exhibiting artists.
