All of the delivered works will be insured subject to the general insurance conditions from the time of delivery to the time of collection. Transport costs are covered by the artist. We will be happy to help organise shared transport arrangements.
A catalogue in DIN A4 format is produced for the exhibition with one page per artist. The digital photos and text on each of the participating artists is requested when the jury’s decision is sent out. The artists receive a free copy of the catalogue.
A symposium will be held in May 2010 in the run up to Nord Art. Approximately 10 artists are invited to attend the symposium. Large works for Nord Art are produced at the symposium. If you wish to attend the symposium, please mark the “Symposium” box in the application form. We also require details on the materials and dimensions, estimated time required, photos with examples of works, and a sketch where possible. The participants at the symposium enjoy free materials, a workplace, and accommodation at the exhibition site itself. The work created remains the property of the artist and will be exhibited at Nord Art for at least 2 years – with the exception of works which are sold.
