CALL FOR WORKS
Paths of the gaze, paths in time, paths taken in space, in the city,
in the landscape. Paths one can draw, imagine, make possible,
traverse. The Percursos Project is an initiative of a
multidisciplinary group of artists (acting in the area of visual art
and design) moved by the desire to find new ways to perceive normally
unnoticed situations in daily life. Percursos aims to establish
dialogues through artistic proposals introduced as elements of
"contra-flux" (against the flow), thus suggesting conversations,
sharing and exchanging many different possibilities and gazes in
relation to daily reality and the city.
Percursos is taking place in the city of Porto Alegre (Rio Grande do
Sul, Brazil) from the 11th of September to the 11th of December, and
includes exhibitions, performances, interventions and web art. As part
of this project, we are launching this announcement for work
submission in order to show and diffuse works by artists as well as
open this exchange network up to the public.
The Percursos Project is non-profit.
