VI SPLITGRAPHIC 2013
International Graphic Art Biennial
CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Submission Deadline: 1st August 2013
The sixth Splitgraphic International Graphic Art Biennial is taking place from October to December 2013. Splitgraphic biennial is showing contemporary international and national graphic artists.
Since 2003, when the first Splitgraphic biennial was organized, we have been continually working on presenting international, Croatian and local printmakers; supporting new and classical tendencies in graphic art and above all aiming to exhibit good quality prints.
Idea or concept of the exhibitions during Splitgraphic biennial has changed over the years. The concept of the first Splitgraphic in 2003 was the Diocletian's palace that was chosen as a continuation of Split's graphic tradition. We wanted to link Splitgraphic biennial with city's printmaking history and with the famous and influential book by British architect Robert Adam. He dedicated this book to the architecture of Diocletian's palace in the eighteenth century, and published it with the engravings made by Charles L. Clérisseau.
Splitgraphic has established over the past five printmaking biennials a perpetual theme 'a dialogue'. A dialogue among artists and printmaking techniques, but also a dialogue of exhibition venues, one of the reasons being the importance of connecting and establishing dialogue among city's exhibition spaces. By installing exhibitions in various galleries during Splitgraphic biennials we created a dialogue and a connection among city structures 'invading' them with graphic art.
Sixth Splitgraphic biennial will be organized in the Old City Hall, Gallery of University Library Split and City Museum of Split during October, November and December 2013.
All artists and printmakers are elligible to apply to Splitgraphic biennial. Splitgraphic accepts all printmaking techniques and print sizes. Admission fee for Splitgraphic 2013 is 50 euro (free for art students).
