Through collaborative exchange between citizens of Philadelphia, U.S. and Medellín, Colombia, 75º West/75º Oeste activates conversations about the impact of globalized free trade. By trading small objects and big ideas, the project asks: What is ours to give? What is ours to keep? What do we truly value? And how we can protect what we value when living in a global society?
75º West/75º Oeste invites Philadelphia-based artists of all disciplines (visual, performing, literary) to participate in this exchange. Artists are asked to submit images that represent their creative work, along with short statements about what they value in their lives and in their city.
Work submitted in Philadelphia will be professionally printed multiple times in miniature and exported to Medellín, Colombia in June. Once in Medellín, each image will be packaged into a small ziplock baggie (why ziplock baggies?), accompanied by the artist’s name and statement. The baggies will be distributed and displayed throughout the city in several ways – given to members of the public to either keep or pass on, left in public spaces for people to encounter (for example, on a park bench or pinned to a tree), and exhibited in a gallery setting at the contemporary art center Casa Tres Patios. Work may also be shown as part of community workshops at Museo Casa de la Memoria and Casa NN. Work will be credited at all times. As a partnering artist on the project, your name and a hyperlink to your website will appear on the 75º West/75º Oeste website.
In a parallel process, art from Medellín will be exported to Philadelphia. Philly-based artists will be invited to help package, distribute, and display the images as part of the U.S. Social Forum and as a way to raise awareness about the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
In both cities, the opportunity for individuals to contribute personal objects for import/export will run alongside the display and distribution of artwork.
All work submitted will be accepted into the project. Submissions will become part of the ongoing process of 75º West/75º Oeste.
Thank you for your participation.
All images will be printed in a square format (1:1 aspect ratio).
You may either:
Size your image to a square format
Submit a differently-sized image with the understanding that 75º West/75º Oeste will crop it
Images must be submitted:

You may submit up to 10 images. Multiple submissions are encouraged.

No judging, no applications, just tell us you’re coming and as long as we have space, we give you space. We need BANDS! Contact us if you know a band who might want to play a BIG ART SHOW or any Pterodactyl event! – The band picking is a little less all inclusive because we only have 3 or 4 spots a show. A few things for artists: You can sell your work if you want, but you don’t have to, and in fact you’ll probably have more fun if you don’t. This is an art show, not a flea market, you must have made the things you’re showing. You can sell your original artwork, bring prints of your work and anything hand made is fine, just use your judgement and err on the side of arty. We have nothing to do with you selling your work. We do not act as your art dealers or brokers. It’s free for you to be in the show, but if you sell something and want to donate Pterodactyl a few bucks nobody’s going to turn you down. We are not responsible in any way for lost, stolen or damaged artwork. We just supply the space and the fun. By being in this show you agree that we are not responsible for damages/loss/etc. You’ll get about 6 horizontal feet of space to show work (make the best of it!). Want in? Great! e-mail us: BIGARTSHOW@pterodactylphiladelphia.org. Please include your: name / e-mail addy / phone number / and a link to your work (for the website and for logistics of where we put you in the room) AND WHICH DATE YOU WANT TO BE IN!
