Two students are sending out invitations by post to Norwegian artists and artists studying at The Academy of Fine Art in Oslo. Invited artists are sending a work in a returning envelope to two students. Works are exhibited side by side. The exhibition is open during Open Academy 2015.
The goal is to present a great group of artists; each one of them presenting only one work at the exhibition 1 4 , 8 x 2 1. Works are on paper and in the same format. The works will be for sale for 500NOK each. The money from the sales of the works will be donated entirely to support of the organisation Dråpen i havet – www.drapenihavet.no. Dråpen i havet are sending volunteers to Lesvos for helping the arriving refugees.
The works are not necessarily mirroring the refugee situation. The exhibition itself does not have an ideological stance, beside the support of the organisation Dråpen i havet.
The exhibition will open on the 10th of December 4.00pm – 8.00pm and the 11th of December 11.00am – 5.00pm at The Academy of Fine Art in Oslo, Fossveien 24. 0551 Oslo.
Every sale will be made anonymously until the buyer collects the work. The names of the participating artists will be published before the opening.
Works can be payed with cash or by use of vipps.
Works, which are not sold, will be returned or destroyed, depending on what the artist prefers.
The initiative is inspired by Jonas' Julekort, Copenhagen and RCA Secret, London.
The exhibition is inaugurated and curated by Beatrice J. L. Alexanian and Anna Sofie Mathiasen.
