The cultural entity, the first to emerge after the return of democracy, has two spaces specially prepared for this purpose: Bicentennial Gallery and Lily Garafulic Hall.
Its Director of Culture, María Gracia Valdés, comments on the profile of the applicants. “Our call is open to all artists, there is no age limit. However, until now, our applicants have been rather young emerging artists. We welcome them with the same dignity and importance, that if we did it with postulants or renowned artists “.
In this way, creations have been selected that cover different techniques and styles, such as video, photography, serigraphy, sculpture, drawing, painting, engraving, installations, sound art, among many others.
This year, although the creation is open and free, special attention will be paid to projects whose central theme is socio-cultural issues such as inequality and immigration.
“We know perfectly our audience; we are also in a district where there are people who have come to live in Chile, especially from our neighboring countries. So that’s why we wanted to mark these two axes “adds María Gracia Valdés.
