CALL for ARTIST 2017 | complete photo gallery

Every year CHEAP creates a space for participation in the festival by issuing a call for artists open to not only street artists but also graphic designers, photographers, illustrators and visual artists in general. The CHEAP call brought in pieces from far-flung artists and countries which were printed in a poster format and pasted up on the walls of Bologna’s suburbs.

For CHEAP, this open call is a way of investigating contemporary issues from the bottom up, fostering the cross-contamination of expressive languages, supporting active citizenship and collectively re-appropriating spaces in which artists can unleash their creative energies.

DISORDER – this is the theme CHEAP has chosen for its 2017 CALL for ARTISTS, to set off a chaotic wave of artistic, creative and independent expression for imagining new forms and articulations of disorder through the visual arts.
We are looking to stir up semantic disturbances and upset the limits of artistic languages, using the public space where CHEAP displays the work received in response to the call for artists every year to break down the aesthetic order based on good/bad, respectable/vandalistic, legal /illegal dichotomies.

We call on you to gauge the degree of your systems’ entropy, to join us in violating symmetries and structuring excess, to give a shape to commotion.

We do not seek synthesis and innocuous answers do not interest us: we need more conflict, new tensions, excesses and contradictions. DISORDER, please!
