two successful editions, for the third edition ARTPORT collaborates
with CINEMA PLANETA, the award-winning International Environmental Film
Festival in Cuernavaca, Mexico. We invite video artists worldwide to
participate with works that explore global warming, focusing on forests
in honor of the United Nations International Year of Forests 2011.
Artists are encouraged to tell us their stories about deforestation
or tree planting and its positive effects; they may also opt to approach
the topic of symbolic, psychological or socio-political significances
of forests. Our aim is to present a convincing survey of the current
artistic exploration of this topic worldwide with 20 etablished and
emerging artists, edited into a visually and conceptually coherent
compilation by ARTPORT_making waves.
The final winner will be awarded an artist residency.
Deadline for submitting proposals is May 9, 2011.
