RAIZVANGUARDA (RV) is proud to present a brand new project; a visual art exhibition, “ROOTS” which will be held in the exhibition space of Aqui Base Tango on Rua Venâncio Rodrigues n. 8 in Coimbra. The exhibition will take place from 23rd to 27th of May 2018.
RV welcomes visual artists with a Portuguese background to participate in the RV Exhibition, taking place in Coimbra, in the spring of 2018. The central theme of the project is Roots and the aim of the exhibition is to allow Portuguese or Portugal-based artists to explore and express what the concept of Roots means to them. Artists are expected to have some form of connection with Portugal, as mentioned before, which is the only requirement for participation. The exhibition is open to professional artists as well as students of artistic studies. During the opening of the exhibition, an artist will be selected by a jury for a residency in RAIZVANGUARDA’s residency programme.
RAIZVANGUARDA’s main target group for the residency programme so far has been international artists and RV’s main projects has unfolded abroad, so the purpose of the exhibition is to make connections with local artists and galleries with an aspiration for future collaborative projects and, of course to offer a free residency period to one artists who would be interested in cooperating with RV. During their residency, the artist will receive free promotion and the opportunity to have an exhibition at RV at the end of their residency period.
