With a Box

Say Hello With A Box

This year, participating artists will be using a box.  This specific box shown in the image below.  You can buy the box at the art stores for under 3 Euro. for example the box can be found for (2,84 Euro) at Gerstaecker.

PLEASE USE THIS EXACT BOX.   I want this box which is 16 x12.5 x 4 cm.  If you can make a box that is this identical style with dove tails and sliding lid made out of wood, then you can make one. Otherwise please purchase the one available at Gerstaecker. (A German Art store with a location in Munich and an online store.)

Now, what will you do with this box?   There are no rules regarding what you make.  Do whatever you want with this box.

 Whatever artwork you make must not be bigger than 16 x12.5 x 4 cm. The finished art piece may not be bigger than the size of this box.

You are allowed to manipulate the box in whatever way you want or make the box your composition for your artwork.

Finished sculptures may not be bigger than this box. Photographers, you can photograph the box or you can make the box a frame for your artwork.  The finished size of your art piece may not be bigger than this box so if you print a print, the print no matter how you print it may not be bigger than this box. You may make a second print if I have wall space but I don’t guarantee that any prints will be hung up in whatever space we use.

THEME –  Say Hello 2017 is a way for you to introduce yourself to the Munich Artists community and to people around the world who follow our Munich Artists bog and events.

I want you to use this box in some way and that is the only limit I am putting on you.  Do not use the world hello.  I want this artwork to represent your artwork and style and personal self.

All boxes will be photographed and put on the website and also in a Look book.

I will make an installation from the box photographs  which will be displayed at the MA Window at Odeonsplatz.  We will have an installation on display at our space at Frauenstrasse 18 or an event space if we are able to obtain one which is big enough for the gathering.
