Return to Sender


WHAT : Call For Artists
WHERE : Blindside
DEADLINE : 27th of July 2012

BLINDSIDE is calling for postal works from contemporary visual artists to be presented for inclusion in ‘RETURN TO SENDER’ — an exhibition in our inaugural festival in August 2012 themed around the open concept of travel, transitions and place.

Is there somewhere you would rather be? The inaugural BLINDSIDE Festival ‘everywhere but here’ will be a multi-platform event where artists and the audience can connect, discuss, and imagine alternate destinations together. The postcard works will be exhibited as a salon-style group exhibition, presented in conjunction with a forum on international artist residencies. If you are an artist who is interested in notions of travel and destination, would like to show Melbourne your end of the world, or are just hoping to make the postal service smile, we are accepting submissions via post in the following formats:

Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Textiles, Photography, Prints or basically anything we can stick on the wall or sit on a plinth

Artwork can be any size, as long as it can be sent through the post and fits through a standard letterbox (no larger than 130mm x 240mm, no thicker than 5m, maximum weight 250g). Get creative! Please label your work with your name and include with your submission a separate typed document with your name, medium, year the work was made and from where you are sending it. Also include your email address and contact details.

All works must be received by 27th of July 2012 by the Gallery Manager Shae Nagorcka at: BLINDSIDE Level 7, Room 14, Nicholas Building 37 Swanston Street, Melbourne, Australia, 3000
