Zgraf the international exhibition of graphic design and visual communications, organised by ULUPUH—the Croatian Association of Artists od Applied Arts, announces an open call for works to be displayed at its 12th edition.
Submission deadline is 15 October 2016. The 12th edition of Zgraf is scheduled for 9—24 January 2017 at Lauba—People and Art House, the only private gallery with its own exhibition space in Zagreb (Croatia) which was nominated for European Museum Award in 2014 for its innovative concept.
Ever since its establishment in 1975, Zgraf has been gathering and bringing together internationally acclaimed designers, theorists and critics in Zagreb to examine the basic issues and positions of design in contemporary society. Its aim is to continually highlight the significance of design as a profession and present the finest recent accomplishments to broader audience. Applications for Zgraf 12’s Main Exhibition are submitted in two categories—Review and Theme—an online application form available on Zgraf’s website (www.zgraf.hr).
Review is an international exhibition of selected works from the field of graphic design and visual communications, and Theme an international exhibition of selected realised works and works designed specifically for this exhibition on the theme of ‘Social Reruns’. For both parts of Zgraf 12’s main exhibition works made between 2012 and the submission deadline are eligible to apply.
More information about the terms and conditions, how to apply, theme and submission fee, as well as online application forms are available on the official website of Zgraf 12 (www.zgraf.hr).
