Say Hello With A Box
This year, you will be using a box. This specific box. You can buy the box at the art stores for under 3 Euro. (2,84 Euro) at Gerstaecker. PLEASE USE THIS EXACT BOX. Do not make your own box. I want this box which is 16 x12.5 x 4 cm.
Now, what will you do with this box? There are no rules regarding what you make. Do whatever you want with this box.
Whatever artwork you make must not be bigger than this box.
You are allowed to manipulate the box in whatever way you want or make the box your composition for your artwork. The finished art piece may not be bigger than the size of this box. Finished sculptures may not be bigger than this box. Photographers, you can photograph the box or you can make the box a frame for your artwork. The finished size of your art piece may not be bigger than this box so if you print a print, the print no matter how you print it may not be bigger than this box. You may make a second print if I have wall space BUT DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT TALKING WITH ME IN ADVANCE!!
THEME – Munich Artists/500 Artists Say Hello is a way for you to introduce yourself to me and to the other artists in Munich. I want this box and that is the only limit I am putting on you. Do not use the world hello. I want this artwork to represent your artwork and style and personal self.
All boxes will be photographed and put on the website and also in a book. If we get the right kind of space, I will make an installation from the boxes. If no appropriate space can be found for an installation, I will turn Frauenstrasse 18 into an exhibition room to show off the boxes During May and June. For this exhibition, I will empty out most of Frauenstrasse to give us room to show the boxes (Very exciting.)

Note I: This year we will be having 2 Munich Artists Look Books. The first Look Book will be the artwork from this event. The second look book will be published in September 2017 and will have a different theme. I have 2 Munich Artists who have volunteered to help with the Look Books. If you want to be involved in the development of the Look Books, you can let me know. We will allow artists to advertise in the look book. The book will be divided into the artwork part in the front and then the artist ads in the back. The art ads will be linked to ads on the website. I will be creating a separate post about the Munich Artists Look book.

I have 2 Munich Artists who have volunteered to help with the Look Books. If you want to be involved in the development of the Look Books, you can let me know. We will allow artists to advertise in the look book in addition to the themed image they share. The book will be divided into the artwork part which is curated and then the artist ads in the back.
The art ads will be linked to ads on the website. I will be creating a separate post about the Munich Artists Look book and ads and how we are going to move art news for Munich Artists to a news blog.
NOTE II: This blog post will be translated into German and will be on the website as soon as Holger translates it into German.
NOTE III: I will not mail artwork back to you. I will keep the artwork for 1 year. After the year, I will donate any artwork not picked up to charity. If you would like to participate, please keep this in mind. I still have artwork from 2016.
