DOUBLE YELLOW LINE.
International contemporary jewelry show about borders: political, geographical, cultural.
Moscow, September 2021.
1. I’m not from Russia. Can I still participate in the project?
Certainly! Our project is international, so artists from any country are welcome. However keep in mind that if your work will be accepted for the show, the delivery to and from Moscow will be your responsibility.
2. Who is paying for the delivery of works to the exhibition and back?
Paying for shipping of works to the exhibition and back is your responsibility, as unfortunately we don’t have the budget to help you with that. You can ship it via post (deadline for shipping is June 1st 2021), deliver it yourself or ask someone to deliver it on your behalf (in this case we should receive the work not later than July 1st 2021). We’ll let you know what the shipping address is after the application deadline.
3. Can I submit a sketch or project proposal?
You can submit a sketch of the work to participate in the open call. In this case your application should include: a clear description of the concept; a sketch or any sort of visualization; materials and approximate size. Make sure to include a link to your portfolio and/or social media with works.
4. I applied for “Double Yellow Line”. When will I know if my application got accepted?
As soon as we get your application we will confirm that we received it with a response letter. We will let you know if it was accepted approximately in two weeks after the final application deadline.
5. My application got accepted. What happens next?
Just be ready to answer a few follow-up questions and to deliver your artwork to Moscow no later than on the 1th of June 2021.
We also will be waiting for a high-quality photo of your artwork by June 1st 2021 (or earlier). This is an important clause in order to place your work in the exhibition catalogue.
6. Can I apply more than once?
Sure! You can apply as many times as many suitable ideas for the project you have. However in the end we cannot accept more than 5 works from one artist – so, for example, if you apply with ten works, we’ll have to pick only 5 even if we like all ten.
7. Can I sell my works during the exhibition?
You can reserve a work for a client in order to sell it after the end of the show (and we recommend asking to be paid in advance). However we do not act as middlemen (nor do we take percentage from sales) and we request that the work should stay at the exhibition until the very end.
8. Are there any limitations regarding the size of the work or the materials used?
Just the general rules of fire safety and common sense. In any case, we will stay in close contact with you throughout the whole process, so if you have any doubts don’t hesitate to ask.
9. Will my work be well protected during the show?
Keeping your work safe will be our first priority, however we will not be able to provide insurance during the show. We would recommend to insure your work, especially if it contains precious metals or gems.
