Onomatopee
Onomatopee is launching the RISO Salon, a pop-up Salon series featuring the risoprinted works of local and international artists.
Our first edition is under the program theme “Folklore & Critical Research.”
Folklore and Critical Research is one of the three program lines Onomatopee will focus on for the next few years. Below is an outline of this concept from Onomatopee’s perspective. Artists may feel free to interpret the theme:
“Can seemingly opposite realms as folklore and critical research, reinforce and complement each other?
Upon closer examination, these realms share a common quest for knowledge, understanding the world, and knowledge-sharing.
How can the myths, stories, and rituals from folklore shed light on the contemporary world and generate pertinent insights?
What role can storytelling and symbolism play in this context, and how do they intersect with activism and care? Activism seeks to change what needs changing, while care aims to preserve what is valuable.”
How to apply
You email a digital image of your work as a (jpg, png or pdf, max size 5Mb) attachment to riso@onomatopee.net, using the email subject line: RISO Salon. Include the artist name, and title of the work in the body of the email. If your submission is accepted, we ask you to send us a risoprint-ready file, and we do the risoprinting of your piece in-house on Onomatopee’s risographs.
What happens next?
If your work gets featured in the RISO Salon, it will be available for purchase; artists get a 50% cut of each sale after cost of materials.
Deadlines
Submissions are open from 15 - 29 June, though we will prioritize reviewing the first 100 submissions (so apply as quickly as you can!).
