Quinta da Cruz – Centro de Arte Contemporânea
Quinta da Cruz - Centro de Arte Contemporânea is located at Viseu – Portugal, and was created as a dynamic center for art, culture and identity. It is a cultural space oriented towards the exhibition of contemporary art, to the development of artistic practices, and is perceived as an engine of local artistic promotion. Intended for public enjoyment, culture and leisure, it is integrated into a wide green space of excellence and remarkable biodiversity.
The MailArt Open Call is an annual project that promotes a contemporary art form of expression that emerged as a correspondence exchanged between artists during the 60s and manifested itself as an alternative to the conventional means of art exhibitions on the 70s. It integrates the strategic line - territory and identity, of this space and its relationship with the community and the city, fulfilling the objective of constituting a small format collection.
In 2020, Viseu chooses cinema and photography as motives and expressions of cultural valorization, territorial marketing and tourism promotion, guiding programs and projects under the theme, "Viseu 2020 - Luz, Câmara, Ação" [ Viseu 2020 - Light, Camera, Action ].
Quinta da Cruz – Centro de Arte Contemporânea challenges once again, artists and everyone interested in MailArt to send their artwork through the Postal Service, for our third edition, under the theme "Viseu 2020 - Light, Camera, Action". #viseusemfiltros
