  • description

    Tribute to six great artists of art history.

    In the book "Le Disobbedienti" published by Mondadori / Le Scie, the writer Elisabetta Rasy tells the story of Artemisia Gentileschi, Elisabeth Vigee Le Brun, Berthe Morisot, Suzanne Valadon, Charlotte Salomon e Frida Kalo. Six different women from age to age, family situation, character. However, they share the talent and the will to not bow to the rules imposed by the society of their time, penalizing and marginalizing rules for women. In the portrait-tale that Elisabetta Rasy portrays each of them, the boldness with which they fought and won the hard battle to assert themselves emerges with strength and passion. Despite the prohibitions, obligations, misunderstandings and prejudices. These artists have forever changed the image and place of women in the art world with their work.

  • description

    Printing techniques were never far apart from the art world as some might think. Woodcut, typography, silkscreen, lithograph, stencil, rubber stamps, 3D printing, digital printing, ... are a short list of various means of reproduction within our reach that are also explored for their artistic expression. Although some of these media may have arisen purely for the sake of reproduction and others with marketing intentions ... others had arise with a purely artistic vision. However, none of these techniques, sooner or later, escaped artists who use them for creating multiples or for their material expressiveness.

    It is therefore with this call and with this question in mind that we invite you to question multiples in artistic creation and printing techniques as expression, either through artworks or written statements.

    On our previous curated mailart and artbymail open call and exhibition entitled "Hate Mail? for ya Fat F#uck", we've dealt with similar content as we've shown Claudio Parentela's artwork in the form of digital prints of his own digital collages... in a way raising the question: if physical prints of artwork meant to prevail only among the digital world may or not be considered art? We've also laid out a consonant scheme while presenting rough quality prints from scans of Rachelline Centomo's personal international mailart open call "La Muerte / Mientras la Vida nos Dure" that had happened at Mexico the previous year.

    Exhibitions on tour through Portugal are ALREADY confirmed. We'll keep you updated by email. There will be a digital book to be shared and spread around free of charge to all artists and partners.

  • description

    In 1979, after some travels to the South American Forest, I've planned an Archive dedicated to Amazon in order to highlight, by means of some art projects, the systematic destruction perpetrated by landed proprietors with the connivance of the some governments to build the sadly "famous" trans-Amazonian highroads – real deep cuts on the forest's skin – and for a devastating plan of industrial agriculture which has "taken flash off" the forest. Forest, which has not finished crying and has not ended to be sacrificed to favour even today the more wicked interests of unscrupulous persons.

    After 40 years the AMAZON ARCHIVE invites you to send one or more works dedicated to this theme exclusively by post.

  • description

    At this 2020’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous editions. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.

    ? what's the deal with www.mailart.pt

    like it or not, www.mailart.pt lists all active mailart open calls sorted out by due date, as well as exhibitions, artists and links of interest ... but it may end up being much more

    only after starting this listing, at 01_august_2018, i did realized the extraordinary amount of new open calls coming up all the time ... almost 20 new ones per month! and that's only those that i can grasp... from automatic bot searches, constant research, direct emailing and from those special people that keep me updated on what is going on on the mail art community


    // check the FAQ section to learn how to contribute to this archive and how to submit artwork to the listed open calls
