restART the planet - virtual exhibition

Share

Country:

City:

Eligibility:

We are SKT, a new exciting project with the aim of creating a scattered gallery without borders. The SKTeam is promoting emerging contemporary artists and helping them to showcase and sell their artworks. Currently, we are preparing to launch our third scattered exhibition ‘restART the planet’ that will run from 24 January, 2021 to 24 February, 2021 in 2 different London city-centre locations, Notting Hill and Chelsea.

The theme of the exhibition was inspired by the newly born partnership between SKT and WhereFrom, a young startup with great ideas who connects sustainably-minded brands with sustainably-minded consumers. With their help and creativeness, we will be able to do so much more than promote artists because we will also plant trees. WhereFrom and TreeSisters combine four of today’s big ticket issues: gender, climate, behaviour change, and ecological restoration through large-scale tropical reforestation. We are unique in our grass roots, ethical and holistic approach, our call to include and involve everyone, and our focus on a wider cultural shift that embeds restoration into everything. Partnering with us aligns you with that mission.

The deadline to submit your application is 11 January, 2020. Exhibition contributions start from £150.00 for one piece within 1x1m (you can join with 3 pieces maximum);

SKT will take 20% commission on sales. Whenever we close a sale, we will give you back the contribution you initially invested with us. If it doesn't sell, the funds we gather from the contributions are going towards the needs of the exhibitions:
- Maintenance and hire of the gallery space
- Printing costs (poster, labels etc)
- Online promotion cost
- Staff/Invigilators
- Catering

Our upcoming opportunities:
"SKT goes to Nice" art fair in South France - 9/11 April, 2021
"SKT goes to Amsterdam" - May TBA

Your fee includes 1 live interview (if you attend the opening or 1 video/written interview if you cannot do it) 1 article and 1 tree planted with our partner WhereFromUK.

Please send us an email and we will be more than happy to look at your portfolios and plant trees with you!

It is our honor to invite you to Mauser EcoHouse...an inspirational space in Magical Costa Rica. 

Our core philosophy at the residency is focused on Art, Permaculture and Health. As part of that ethos “Art in Harmony with Nature”, we are continually developing our permaculture and sustainability practices within the residency and in our garden and greenhouse.

It's imperative now with the current world circumstances that we take a time out to create the art that wants to move through us. As we navigate these global times of transition, it's crucial that we all open up to our creative potential. It is art that will become the architecture and beauty of the new world that is unfolding...

At our residency, you will have the opportunity to strengthen your mind, body and spirit through immersion in nature. We are committed to holding a clear and conscious space that allows you the perfect opportunity to express your art, reconnect yourself to the earth, and to heal and rebalance.

At the heart of the residency we place a strong focus on nourishing our bodies with healthy food made with love. It's a wholistic approach which is why we serve food and herbal medicine grown in our onsite greenhouse. We are located within a small community in the mountains yet surrounded by the lush jungle, with breathtaking views. The sunshine and crystal clean mountain water will serve as your medicine as well. 

The program focuses on furnishing artists with healthy gourmet delicious vegetarian meals (breakfast and dinner 5 days a week with ingredients that are either grown on site or locally and sustainably sourced), comfortable and beautiful accommodations, ample work space and serene surroundings so that individual or group projects can can flourish.

You will be surrounded by dozens of different species of birds, butterflies, insects, flowers and plants. It is common to have toucans, scarlet macaws, monkeys, coatis, and sloths pass through. There is a stream that runs through the lower half of the property.

We are blessed with phenomenal sunrises and sunsets and marvelous natural light all day.

The property contains numerous indigenous fruit trees, edible plants, herbs, and a working greenhouse. We are located within a small community in the mountains. Surrounding us is the jungle, breathtaking views, and miles of dirt roads and trails to meander, run or hike, and explore. There is a family owned restaurant, Mirador Donde Andres with delicious food a 2o minute walk away.

This is the ideal location for nature/landscape photographers/painters/dancers/music composers/sculptors/jewelry designers/writers/poets/plein air/visual/multi-media and installation artists.

We are excited to welcome you to our beautiful, magnificent paradise-Mauser EcoHouse in Costa Rica.
