Bases Exhibition Art Al Vent V


The culture department of the “Town Hall of Gata de Gorgos” with the local school “Plàstica Experimental A. Vives” organise the Tenth Exhibition of ART AL VENT


1. - This exhibition is opened to all artists, without any limitation of age, nationality, sex or education. Participation can be individual or collective.

2. - The works must follow this exhibition’s principles; which are a reflection or interpretation of the traditional bedspreads that have been used through the centuries to decorate Gata de Gorgos balconies.

3. - The concept is basically to reflect about the textile world. The cloth, once finished, must be able to be folded and flexible to the wind effects.

4. - Works will be excluded if:

-They are too heavy.

-They have an excessive domain of painting or sculpture.

-They cannot be folded easily.

-They have elements that easily loose.

5. - All the techniques are accepted, following the above principles but subject to the following considerations:

- All works will be exhibited outside, with all its climatic conditions.

- The cloth can be cutted, dyed, different materials can be stucked (not voluminous and adapted to the textile concept); but the dimensions can never be cutted or extended.

-If painting is used, it will be applied directly on the fabric without any primer.

6. - The Town Hall will provide the cloth, by sending it free. If any author wants to make himself the cloth, this must meet the following characteristics: cotton canvas ecru 250x163cm. All sides will be sewed to avoid fraying. Works will be hanged vertically from a balcony. The cloth will have 7 strips sewed, following the model attached to suit the structure of the balconies. The strips’ length will be 44 cm by 1,5 cm wide. To present works with other media or without fulfilling the conditions of the strips, will be a reason for exclusion from the exhibition.
