Call 2016:

This year, Cheap invites artists to explore the idea of “edge” through images: the edge understood as not only a geographical boundary between countries, but also as the utmost horizon above and below which we act, experience emotions, erect obstacles and build possibilities for change.

Talking about the edge brings into play the concept of measurement, which for the arithmetic of the Cheap on Board project effectively coincides with the frame of each notice board where we display the work of the artists selected through the Open Call; it also coincides with the changeable meaning acquired by each individual poster on being inserted into this shared frame.

Cheap thus understands the edge as the border beyond which imagination takes flight in a collective narrative about migratory trajectories and the cultural, political and emotional changes they sow in our societies.

The focus of this year’s call seeks to encourage movement in two directions, both cognitive and experiential: on one hand, a move to reject the idea of borders as a means of dividing populations; on the other hand, a move to consider the edge as a strategic point of observation for locating unexpected connections, following improbable paths and pushing ourselves to imagine new, multi-cultural forms of sociality and coexistence.

We hope that, in the face of a set of static and pre-defined display spaces, every act of trespassing can trigger a web of expressive and relational possibilities.

CHEAP XXV:

For the first time in the history of Cheap, to inaugurate this fourth edition we have organized XXV, a collective poster art installation involving 25 international artists working in illustration and street art.

The Festival organizers asked each of these artists to create a piece that will be hung in one of the 25 unused notice boards scattered between Via Independence and Piazza San Giuseppe to form an ideal itinerary winding through one of downtown Bologna’s busiest areas.
