SELF HELP GRAPHICS & ART EXCHANGE WITH

TALLER EXPERIMENTAL DE GRAFICA, CUBA




Self Help Graphics & Art (SHG) in partnership with the Museum of Latin American Art (MoLAA) and the Richardson Center for Global Engagement invites artists to apply for participation in a printmaking exchange with the Taller Experimental de Gráfica in La Habana, Cuba. The selected artists will produce with Cuban artists a joint portfolio of limited edition fine art serigraphs, which will premier at MoLAA. Funded by the Richardson Center for Global Engagement to support cultural exchange and managed in partnership with MoLAA, five participating artists will travel to Cuba and visit the Taller Experimental de Gráfica in La Habana, Cuba (food, accommodations, air and local travel will be provided).

The deadline to submit an application is Sunday, July 5, 2015, at 11:59PM PST.

Five artists will travel to Cuba in early fall (September or October 2015) to each produce one (1) limited edition (final edition run tbd) fine art print. Per a signed agreement with SHG, each artist will receive 50% split of the edition plus one (1) suite of the portfolio of prints. In early 2016, SHG will host five Cuban artists who will also produce limited edition fine art serigraphs for the portfolio. The Museum of Latin American Art will premiere the portfolios at an exhibition. In conjunction with the premiere exhibition, the portfolios will be sold to benefit SHG and the Taller Experimental de Gráfica. After the closing of the premier exhibition, SHG will host a second exhibition of the portfolio to celebrate the collaboration.
