The Palm Foundation has issued a call to digital artists looking to have their work exhibited in the biggest latin american art fair; ZsONAMACO. This initiative gives creators the opportunity to exhibit their work to a new audience of art collectors. A total of $4,000 grant is available in this Call x Art, each curated artist will receive a $500 grant, and the artist with the most votes from the Palm Collective (formerly PalmDAO) will receive a $1500 grant.
The exhibition will form an integral part of ZsONAMACO art fair, set to take place on February 7-11 in Mexico City. The annual event attracts more than 70,000 art collectors and appreciators from all over the world.
To mark the 20th anniversary of ZsONAMACO, Palm Foundation has issued a call to digital artists around the world to be curated by the Curatorial Committee formed by Direlia Lazo, Glam Beckett and Superchief Gallery. The partnership aims to support and showcase fresh talent in the digital arts within traditional art settings. The initiative provides an opportunity for artists without gallery representation to be showcased at a major art fair.
Artists who participate in the Palm Foundation and ZsONAMACO Call x Digital Art are required to mint one artwork on Palm Network following the NFTrade How to Guide or Artis Valley How to Guide. Once the artwork has been minted on Palm Network, the artist must submit the minted piece to the Palm Collective.
Submissions will be reviewed by the curatorial committee, who will select three to five pieces to be displayed in the Palm Collective booth during ZsONAMACO 2024. Each of the curated artists will get a $500 dollar grant.
All submissions to the Palm Foundation and ZsONAMACO Call x Digital Art will be subject to a Palm Collective vote. The artists with the highest number of votes will win a $1,500 grant by the Palm Foundation.
Submissions open on January 17 and run until January 28, followed by a three-day curation period before the Palm Collective booth in ZsONAMACO opens to the public and Palm Collective vote takes place February 7-9 on the best submissions. Artists will retain all the intellectual and commercial rights to their work and will have a choice of commercial platforms should they wish to sell their NFTs.
