2nd EDITION OF T-FESTA

2014
Back
 

After the success of the last edition, the 2nd Edition of T-Festa is already under way!

T-Festa is a platform for art and t-shirts that Bilbotex has supported since its launch. It aims to promote new artistic expressions using t-shirts as the medium, providing independent artists with a platform to showcase their work in its different aspects.

CALL

Entries will be accepted from 4 June and in keeping with the spirit of equal and fair opportunities for all, anyone can take part, thereby actively and dynamically supporting emerging artists who do a remarkable job but who are not very well known due to their lack of resources.

One proposal will be accepted per participating brand, regardless of whether that brand is composed of one or more people.

Already established brands with a commercial history, no matter how small, may be submitted, along with fledgling projects coming to light for the first time at T-Festa.

OPTIONS

To prevent the know-how of brands with a commercial history being a handicap for the brands that do not have this benefit, two options are offered:

Option A: nine places are offered aimed at artists, designers and groups who already have their own firm or brand and have created at least one collection. Each creator or group of creators selected will be assigned an individual space to showcase their work over the four days of the event.

Option B: ten places are offered aimed at artists or groups of artists that have not yet developed a collection but have worked with t-shirts as their medium, or those who have not previously worked using fabric as their medium but wish to do so. 

Those interested must submit a minimum of two and a maximum of four t-shirt designs that they want to produce. There will be a free choice of technique and two designs will be chosen for each selected artist.

Option B.1: artists submitting their t-shirt designs will have the opportunity, if they so wish, to also participate in option b.1, which consists of a sub-selection of a maximum of two artists who will collectively showcase, in an exhibition space dedicated to this, a project of their own in any artistic discipline. 

This exhibition will be curated by an external agent who will ultimately reserve the right to choose one or various artists external to the competition for this exhibition.
