Green Art 2013

Invitation for artist applications, curator proposals & sponsorship/collaboration
GREEN EXPO Green Art 2013

In November 2012 eight invited artists exhibited art during the Green Expo at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). This year we are working with the intention of having an art exhibition at the Sandton Convention Centre GREEN EXPO too – we invite proposals from curators based in Johannesburg. In addition to the artists being invited to participate in the Cape Town exhibition, we are doing a call for Western Cape artists whose work can be categorized as “green art” or environmental art. 

Interested artists (Western Cape): 
Please send examples of your work (photographs of maximum 1MB each), an artist statement/description of your work and motivation, and your biography or artist resumé. 
DEADLINE: 30 April 2013
Interested curators (Johannesburg): 
Please send your proposal (outlining the basic concept or theme, potential artists, and general provisional layout and/or installation of the exhibition) and CV. 
DEADLINE: 30 April 2013
Partnership, sponsorship and collaboration:
Anyone interested to get involved in another way, don’t hesitate to contact us. We need sponsors to fund the exhibitions, and this is a great opportunity to show your commitment towards the arts as well as creativity that raises awareness around environmental issues.

Plastics may not be the flavour of the month but my feeling is they are here to stay.  The Plastics Federation of South Africa are keenly involved in the sustainablity of plastics and are holding a conference on this subject on the 13th March at the Johannesburg Expo Centre (Nasrec)…  This should be of great interest to all those in the plastics industry as well as those making use of or considering plastic packaging material.
