Call For Entries: MTN & UJ Emerging Artists Development Programme
Posted on 20 August 2020
The MTN SA Foundation and UJ Art Gallery will continue their collaboration following on the successful exhbitions such as Shifting Conversations exhibition (2017), Continuing Conversations (2018) and Conversing the Land (2019).
Due to the ramifications of Covid-19, the offering for 2020 is an online exhibition with MTN's THE BLIND ALPHABET - LETTER B: Barbery to Bigeminate by Willem Boshoff , as well as selected artworks derived from an Emerging Artists Development Programme.
Artwork submissions can be related to the themes dealt with in Willem Boshoff's THE BLIND ALPHABET - LETTER B: Barbery to Bigeminate or can be a response to or in conversation with the body of work. They will consider artworks that encourage innovative and creative ways of looking at and approaching multi-disciplinary online exhibitions and the current lockdown situation.
Ten submissions will be selected and incorporated into THE BLIND ALPHABET - LETTER B: Barbery to Bigeminate online exhibition, with nine of these emerging artists receiving a stipend of R3 000 to further their careers. The most deserving artist will receive R30 000.
These works must also be made available for an exhibition at the UJ Art Gallery towards the end of 2021.
The partnership between MTN & UJ is supported by the Business and Arts South Africa (BASA) Supporting Grant.
