Posters Now

Contest

Intersection organizes a contest for the Posters Now Exhibition!

Open to everyone, amateurs and professionals, Belgians and internationals.

This contest is in line with Intersection’s philosophy and mission: to make culture accessible and attractive. We hope to offer a challenge to professionals, an opportunity for art students, and maybe spark newfound gifts in amateurs.

Create your poster, take part in the contest

Theme: “Rendez-Vous”

An encounter between multiple people or a romantic date, where the time and place were previously agreed upon/ Date and time of meeting

A romantic date, a get together among friends, a professional appointment… to meet at the local bar, at the park, in unknown territory… First date, tomorrow, meet next summer.

A story starts with an encounter… To meet, to get together, to love on another. In the current situation, we all miss social interaction! Can we still look forward to one day being able to meet? Could we reinvent the way we interact? Will we one day be nostalgic of a spontaneous interaction, like when you randomly meet someone on the corner of a street? We chose this theme since it is a valid preoccupation today. It reminds us of an almost forgotten reality, a common desire to reunite and live together.

Each participant can send two posters (maximum) inspired with the theme “Rendez-vous”.
Deadline for applications: 19 February 2021

  • Open up the dialogue and disrupt mainstream codes of perception or thought
