CONCEPT

 

The Danish grafisk vaerksted \ NAESTVED – The Print Studio for Artists - celebrates its 20 years anniversary in 2008 by arranging

 

Naestved International Exhibition of Contemporary Mini Prints

 

The purpose is in the first hand to introduce the Danish public to contemporary miniature prints from around the world while in the second hand to enlarge the collection of works within the grafisk vaerksted / NAESTVED and Naestved Kommune (Naestved Municipal County) and making the archives available for academic research, museums, artists, and print students alike. The works within this research archives can never be sold.

 

The Exhibition will be at Naestved Roennebaeksholm Arts & Culture Centre March 29 – April 20, 2008 with Opening Night March 28, 2008 at 4 p.m. The Exxhibition will be opened by the Danish Minister fo Culture / Secretary of State for Culture Brrian Mikkelsen and the Mayor of Naestved Henning Jensen

 

The invvited artists are asked to submit up to 3 different prints. All print media / techniques are accepted. If the submitted works are not monoprints the artists are free to use the prints for other exhibitions etc.

 

We prefer that the maximum dimension of the print is 8 x 8 cm. but have accepted other sizes and formats if the maximum size of the print matrix/substrate does not exceed 20 x 20 cm. (this maximum size includes both image and border areas). The original prints must be matted with plain white matt board. The outside dimensions for the matting must be 20 x 20 cm. for both the „passe-par-tout“ and backing board. If the prints are not mounted with a passť-par-tout the print matrix/substrate must be 20 x 20 cm.

 

There has not been any official entry form and no entry fee.

Deadline has been November 15 with a special "late deadline" December 15, 2007.
