THE curators of an art exhibition in Melbourne, Australia, are urgently looking for Papua New Guinean artists to submit work for the upcoming Sampari Art Show in December.
The submission date is 17 October 2016.
The show, curated and organised by a team of dedicated volunteers from the West Papua Women's Office, is themed 'West Papua' and will feature the art of artists across Melanesia in solidarity with the West Papuan people.
Sampari coordinators in each of the Melanesian nations are working to attract submissions inspired by West Papuans, their geography, cultures, politics, history and environment.
Submissions may be of collage, printing, photography, drawing, traditional sculpture, weaving and painting.
After the submission closing date on 17 October scans of each artist’s artwork will be emailed to Melbourne and each scan will be printed on exquisite paper, exhibited, and sold for $60.
Money from sales will be split 50-50 between the artist and the Federal Republic of West Papua Women’s Office.
