We are currently looking for artists who have artworks with a Japan theme that they would like to donate to Magnitude 9 :: Japan Tsunami Disaster Relief Exhibition to be held at Mils Gallery in Sydney, 11~15th May 2011.
Our starting point is a photography based show, 5-10 artworks per artist. However we are open to other mediums such as prints and small sculptures, and less exhibits of 2~5 per artist for consideration also; send us an email with your interest to help out in any way.
The exhibition is just 4 weeks away, with the call for artists interest for this friday 15th April.-extended to Wednesday April 20th, just drop us a short email to let us know of interest first and follow with submission.
We realise this is short notice, however we thought that with the devastating events that unfolded a month ago, we should move quickly to raise funds as soon as possible. We understand that it may be difficult for artists to prepare delivery of artworks for the exhibition. We still want to make this event happen!
We have decided to accept soft digital copies of photography / print artworks 1~2weeks prior to the exhibition starting 11 May, and we will arrange the printing and framing ourselves in Sydney and seek artist sponsors. Please register your interest with us by sending us an email, and we can organise the timeframe with you.
Include: Short description and pdf / jpg max 5MB of example of your artworks.
If you are interested to volunteer in other capacities it would be greately appreciated. We are looking for any contacts for sponsors, donations in covering expenses for venue, drinks, printing.
As artists, many of us have been greatly inspired by Japanese culture and art, and it would be a great occasion to show that we are thinking of Japan, and that we want to help in any small way to this cause. We could not sit still and hear further reports of the daily earthquakes still happening, the 25,000+ toll of the death and missing, the unfolding nuclear situation and those left behind that have so much ahead of them to rebuild their lives.
