“Digitalisation”, the theme for Cape Town’s next INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC ART FESTIVAL 2020 — AN OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS to participate CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA— The streets of Salt River are once again ready to host the 2020 International Public Art Festival. This 4th instalment, themed “Digitalisation”, will be a meditation of artistic views on the modern age and the ubiquitous presence of the internet, digital technologies and their seamless integration into modern life. It will facilitate a dialogue on a more sustainable future within the age of the digital revolution. The festival will take place between 12th and 17th February 2020.
IPAF is making an official OPEN CALL to South African artists as well as from around the African continent to take part by creating public art murals in Salt River, one of Cape Town’s bourgeoning urban residential and industrial enclaves.
The artworks must be
1) Explorative: as they explore and integrate in unusual spaces, create accidental encounters and pose small art gestures;
2) Visible and public-friendly;
3) Collaborative: in how they foster dialogue within the community, public discussion and positive development;
4) Interdisciplinary: by ideally incorporating digital and multimedia forms (from murals to projection, virtual reality experiences). The deadline for submissions is on the 31st October 2019, and all submissions must be sent to [email protected].
