Open Call for artists | Perseverance

Open call for English speaking visual artists residing in Greece and Cyprus to submit their works for participation in an exhibition at the Chili Art Gallery, Athens, Greece, in September. Local & foreign artists are eligible to apply. The formal languages of the exhibition are Greek and English, and all the materials will be bilingual accordingly.  The exhibition's formal languages are Greek and English. In addition, a bilingual digital catalog will be published.

The exhibition welcomes original art pieces of any style and artistic expression that relate to the theme. The accepted mediums include painting, printmaking, photography, printed digital art, collage, Video Art, mosaics, sculptures, with no size limitation, as long as the weight of any artwork does not exceed 10 kilograms.

Conceptual Framework: Perseverance is the driving force behind self-realization and progress. It demands that we serve our vision and remain committed to our values, regardless of societal toxicity, and against the dreariness of daily life. Perseverance differs from patience, which implies a passive notion of tolerance, as it involves an unwavering dedication to goals and is characterized by an unyielding determination to achieve them, even if it requires significant time and effort. Perseverance is distinct from stubbornness, as stubbornness may imply an inability to adapt to new information or circumstances, while perseverance entails a steadfast commitment to long-term goal achievement. Perseverance is the motivating force to become the change we want to see; it keeps us moving forward, constantly seeking improvement. "Perseverance is a steadfast commitment to long-term goals," writes Alain Badiou, emphasizing that perseverance is not swayed by temporary failures or difficulties but represents an ongoing effort to achieve our goals, regardless of the circumstances we face. "Perseverance is the ability to keep trying despite failures, disappointments, and difficulties," writes psychologist Angela Duckworth in her book "Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance." Famous works of art and eminent creators are thematically and nominally associated with perseverance, while contemporary art pieces mobilize, inspire, and call on each individual to contribute to the fulfillment of their expectations for today and tomorrow's social progress.

Artworks on paper must be framed, and canvas works must be stretched.

Eligibility: Artists who have reached the age of 18 and reside in Greece and Cyprus, regardless of their origin or nationality, can participate.
