Almost 70 artists from all continents of the world exhibited their work at the 1st edition of Global Village in January 2010. In the weekends different music performances and art performances took place at this event. Despite the heavy snow the public showed up in great numbers. In January 2012 the 2nd edition of Global Village starts. Now the exhibition will not only take place in the Netherlands, but also in France. From 20 January till 5 February 2012 Global Village will be held again in the Grand Church of Alkmaar. And from 7 July till 15 July 2012 Global Village will be held at the Castle of Sully in Burgundy France.
The Grand Church of Alkmaar, the Netherlands has 3,000 m2 of indoor floor space. The roof of the church is about 30 to 60 meters high. It has many possibilities for freestanding artwork, art hanging from the ceiling or on the wall and for video. Unfortunately there are very limited possibilities for outdoor exhibition. The art will be insured during the exhibition in the church.
The Castle of Sully, Burgundy, France has only 400 m2 of indoor floor space available for the exhibition. That floor space is in one of the former stables and that space is about 6 meters high. The possibilities for outdoors presentation are endless, artists can place there art at the centre court, the lawn between the 2 former stables and the surrounding park. The art isn’t insured during the exhibition at the castle.
About 40 artists will be given the opportunity to present their work to the public. Artists from every discipline can apply for Global Village 2012. We will select about 40 artists based on their page on our network site. During the selection we look for innovation, quality and originality of the artwork. Apart from that we will keep an eye on the diversity and the unity within the exhibition.
Deadline for applying is 1 October 2011.
In October we will make the selection for both locations. The artists will be informed about the results of our selection before 1 November 2011.
