Here we go!

Installation 1 – May 31 – July 1

While Our Say Hello Window Installation is at Odeonsplatz, we will have an installation called Goodbye at the window in Haidhausen.  This installation is open to 25 Artists.

Good bye Installation

The installation will use black cloth tote bags.  Claudia Ziersch has ordered our bags and is creating a tutorial for us on what I want you to do with the bag.

Each artist will get a black bag where they must tape a design/artwork to one side.  This side will be exposed to the sun for the month and we will have a gathering at the end of the month to remove the bags from the window and remove the tape from the bags.  The final bags will be photographed and shared on Facebook.

The cost for this installation is 20 Euro and includes the bag.  

The bag deadline will be May 14, 2017.  If you want to be there to watch your piece go up in the window, I will post the exact time we are installing the bags on Facebook.  When I have the tutorial from Claudia, I will post it on Facebook and on this Installations page on Munich Artists.  Artists who participated in Say Hello will get first dibs on this installation.

At the end of the installation, we will have a gathering where the artists get their bags and they will rip of the tape exposing the bleaching done by the sun.  The final art pieces will be shown on the website.  All bags must be priced for sale.  I will create a price for the whole installation. If you want to make 2 bags, you can but we will only hang one bag in the window per artist so that each bag gets enough sun exposure.

Installation #2 – July 1 – July 26

During the Beginnings Installation at Odeonsplatz, we will have an installation in Haidausen called The end.

The End Installation

This is a super fun project and does not have a limit to the number of artists participating.

Each artist will create 4 pieces of artwork that fit in an A4 envelope (Please use enforced envelopes.)  You will address and stamp your envelop to be mailed to an address where you want the enveloped mailed.

The envelopes you mail to me will be displayed in the window during the installation. At the end of the installation, you will be sent your self addressed stamped envelope with 3 pieces of art from a random selection of the other artists.   One piece from each artist will be kept as the installation and will be priced to sell as The End installation.

The cost of this Swap 10 Euro and the one art piece you are leaving with me forever.

Deadline for Art pieces is June 23, 2017 meaning I must have your envelope by this date.   There is no limit to where you live, this is open to every artist everywhere.  If you are not in Germany, please add 10 Euro for postage (so international artists have a total cost of 20 Euro) If you are in Germany, you can add your own postage to your self addressed envelope.

Artwork addressed to me can be dropped off or mailed to:

Munich Artists Frauenstrasse 18, D-80469 Munich, Germany

Installation #3  Your True Self – July 26 – August 23, 2017

During the My true Self installation downtown, we will have an installation called Your True Self  at the Haidhausen window.

Your True Self Installation

This your true self installation will require small mirrors like this one. (Thanks Angelica Zeller-Michaelson for the mirror and the inspiration.)

Attachment-1 (3)

Each artist will be allowed to submit up to 5 small mirrors for the installation. You can put whatever artwork you want on the back of the mirror. If you put something on the front of the mirror, make sure it can handle a month exposure to the sun.

Cost per artist is 10 Euro  (not including the mirrors.)

Installation #3 and #4   Nagel Neu & Don’t Throw Me To The Curb – August 23 – September 27

Nagel Neu Odeonsplatz Installation

At Odeonsplatz, we will create an installation called Nagel Neu.  The artwork shall be created using a new piece of  Book Cardboard that 50 x 50.  The art pieces must be collaged and use 3 colours—Orange, Green and Violet.  I will have the 50 x 50 cardboard cut for the artists. Each artist will have some black lines on the cardboard piece that they will have to incorporate into the final artwork.

The collage work can be digital or traditional collage.  This installation is open to 16 Artists who will be selected from the Say Hello Artists.  All artwork must be priced for sale.  The art piece will be sold as an individual installation piece.  More information will be posted on an installation page on MA-The Window.  The deadline for submissions is July 26, 2017.  

All artwork will remain with Munich Artists as a complete installation. You must price your art piece for me for my records.

Don’t Toss Me To The Curb Installation.

Recycled Cardboard – All art pieces must be up to an A3 in size and created on Cardboard.  The installation will hang in the window and be placed on the floor of the window space.   All paper used in this art piece must be from the recycle bin.

The colours for this piece are also limited to Orange, Green and Violet.   If we have too many pieces for the window, they will be also be exhibited at Frauenstrasse 18.


That’s all for now.  If you want to participate in these events, the sign up sheets will be posted at our April 22, 2017 gathering from 1400 to 1800.

LOOK FORWARD TO THE NEXT 6 MONTHS!
