- end March – Camera, Cluj-Napoca, RO
- early June – Lapsus, Timișoara RO (part of Timișoara 2023 European Capital of Culture)
- late June/early July – Borderline Art Space, Iași, RO
- 19-23 July – Experimental Photo Festival, Barcelona, ES – we will also be holding a bunch of workshops (postdigital approaches, cyanotype, mordancage)
- mid-September – 2/3 galeria, Bucharest, RO – this will be the final show in the circuit (also hosted at this really gorgeous gallery downtown Bucharest), so it will also host a series of satellite events – artist talks and panels, publication launch (in case we pull it through and find some funding for it) and perhaps some special for Cyanotype day?
In case you’re seeing this for the first time, Share, Tag or Dye Again is again really simple, straightforward, free for all, no selection, no fuss, international open call, covering all mediums and types of art.
Be a part of it by sending us a link to a post (yes, post, not profile – we want YOU to choose) where you self-promote(d) your work on social media over the last 6 months (this is important, we want it fresh! Basically, a post that you published after we closed the previous open call). We prefer Instagram, but you do you. We’d love to discover new social media platforms and don’t feel like it needs to be image based. Also, if you were among the beautiful contributing gang of 2022, we’d love to have you among us again (just make sure to send us something new!).
Here’s the 1-minute form you need to complete for that: https://forms.gle/xnMUTebNkCk1itjLA
Basically, what we are gathering here is one big batch of contributions that will come together into one bold installation in spring 2023. There is no selection process (we cannot stress this enough), but we do have limited space available. Everything is “First come, first served”, so make haste!
Once we’ve gathered a mountain of links, we’ll do what we know best (again): a big ass collective installation where the newest online streams become one united body by means of a nearly 200 year old photographic technique – the cyanotype. You can have a look at the first Share, Tag or Dye installation here:
The fresh installation will travel to 3 hot places in 3 corners of Romania throughout 2023 – Cluj-Napoca (Camera), Timișoara (Lapsus) and Iași (Borderline Art Space), followed by a trip to the Experimental PhotoFestival EXP.23 in Barcelona. Last stop will be back home in Bucharest, at 2/3 Galeria.
What say you? If you don’t feel like saying anything really, just show us.
We’ll be all eyes and hands on deck, to bring this collective work to life!
