About the opportunity: There is a thriving and sophisticated underground art scene in Tehran that is both socially critical and engaged in cutting edge contemporary art.
londonprintstudio is developing a two way communication with these artists and is currently preparing a small portfolio of London based artists to show in Tehran this June.
We will use digital works (A3, if still image, or short videos/animations) - these ship more easily across borders. Moving artworks or funds across borders is not straight forward. So this project is more about building and supporting networks and sharing ideas than it is about commercial transactions.
The brief: We are looking for ten participating artists, whose works comments on, or reflects Contemporary London, to take part in this first project. We are looking for ideas rather than specific media.
How to apply: Artists who would like to participate in this project are invited to send jpeg images/ video links etc to email@example.com subject Tehran
Deadline: 14th May.
Artists selected for inclusion in the project will each receive a copy of the portfolio for themselves.
