ATHENS PRINTMAKING ART CENTER PANDOLFINI & SIATERLI C.N.P.P.

OPEN CALL 2022

Self Portrait

The ATHENS PRINTMAKING ART CENTER - PANDOLFINI & SIATERLI C.N.P.P. is accepting submissions from emerging and established printmakers, visual artists and groups, from all over the world for its upcoming exhibition under the topic of Self Portrait. The ATHENS PRINTMAKING ART CENTER welcomes proposals from the entire spectrum of printmaking, encouraging artistic dialogue and experimentation on the techniques and visual representations.

Artists have been always exploring artistic expression through self-representation. Looking back into the history of art, manifestations of this artistic exploration are traced in the historical tradition of portraiture and painting, the later emergence and distribution of 19th century photography, as well as the selfies culture of our contemporary times. Self-portraiture has been a recurring theme, bringing the artist’s own image and the notion of the self to the forefront of artistic exploration and visual experimentation. In many cases, self portraits have served as studies of an artist's personal style and development, of one’s own visual vocabulary, as well as a means of self-observation and introspection. What is the truth of the portrait and the truth of the artist? What is the need and the driving force behind the visual representation of ourselves and our image? The emerging themes of this artistic practice can open up the discourse around issues of intimacy, identity, personal experience, body and memory. 

Through a sociopolitical lens, the artist's self-portrait is tightly connected to the context from which it was born, bearing the mark and the contemporary challenges of this particular time. Beyond individual experience, self staged images often reveal aspects of reality that would otherwise have been secret and hidden to the viewer. Which are, for example, the indications and the messages revealed behind a portrait that has been created within a time of confinement and harsh restrictions of the Covid-19 era? What do such portraits actually unravel about our individual and collective bodies? Performing the self in the arts is a practice capable of opening up new trajectories towards collective quests and wider social and political manifestations, rather than just another individual narrative that claims to be heard. 

The selected works will be presented in a physical exhibition at ETCH INK art space, the gallery space of the ATHENS PRINTMAKING ART CENTER, between February and June 2023. Official dates will be announced later in 2022.
