OPEN-CALL Portuguese Emerging Art 2018

The Portuguese Emerging Art 2018 is disclosing an open-call for all emerging artists with Portuguese nationality older than 23.

This is the second edition of this competition conducted by EMERGE, which tries to reveal new talents in all artistic expressions. In this sense, there will be no limitations in formats and media and all practices will be evaluated. Furthermore, this will make an auscultation in what’s new and which path is contemporary art currently walking regarding the future.

This year the award is presented by three juries: Ana Cristina Cachola, curator and researcher at Catholic University; Nuno Centeno, gallerist at Múrias Centeno and; Paulo Bernardino Bastos, professor in Communication and Art at University of Aveiro.

Umbigo is the designated media partner of this initiative and is responsible for the communication of the winner whose work will also be featured in the cover of the magazine’s website and an exclusive article with him/her.

All submissions must be sent until 15 January 2018, so there’s time to publish the book Portuguese Emerging Art 2018. Further information and details at
