Apaixonarte received about 300 applications for the Open Call for artists launched in March.
We accepted Visual artists, in the categories of painting, sculpture, digital art, artistic ceramics, drawing, installation art or mixed subjects, aged 25 or over, of any nationality, who work and live in Portugal, and artists with Portuguese nationality, living and working outside Portugal.
Artists between 21 and 64 years old, from 8 nationalities, with surprising artistic quality participated. The selection was quite difficult and unfortunately many artists will have to be left out at this stage. Our physical space is limited.
Even so, we ended up inviting many more artists than was supposed, there are 23 in total.
The artists invited to be part of Apaixonarte are:
