The Portuguese Anthropological Association invites artists to present artistic works to the competition in the ambit of the VII APA Congress, which will take place in June 2019. This call is intended to distinguish artistic projects that have a relation in their contents, methods, languages ​​or inspirations with anthropology as a discipline or with ethnography as a research method.

Each proposal must be accompanied by a portfolio and a text (in Portuguese and English) describing:

– the exhibition project (maximum 300 words)
– the artist’s presentation (maximum 300 words)
– technical information about the exhibition project (maximum 300 words, explaining the requisites/details of the proposed exhibition, such as area needed, size of the objects, etc)

In addition to the organization of an exhibition integrated in the APA 2019 Congress program, a first prize will be awarded for 200 € and two honorable mentions of 150 € each.

The jury will be composed by Humberto Martins, Chiara Pussetti, Francesca di Luca and Teresa Fradique. APA reserves the right to exclude works that convey a message of ethnic, religious or gender discrimination and which – due to their size or characteristics – may constitute a danger to the public.

Applications must be submitted from 7 December to 30 January 2019 and must be sent by e-mail to the APA Secretariat with the e-mail subject line “APA2019_ART”.
