Call for artists

Call For Artists in Es.Arte Gallery
Marbella, Spain


Es.Arte Gallery, the contemporary art gallery in Marbella (Spain), in its concern for the environment and its struggle for awareness and change, presents a call for a special exhibition for next June: Earth of Hunger.

From Es.Arte Gallery we insist on defending the mission that the art and the artist have always had, recover the meaning and importance that they deserve and have demonstrated throughout the history. “Civilizations are not remembered by their business people, their bankers or lawyers; they’re remembered by the arts“. We fight for the artist can express himself, transmit his message to the world, and be part of the art, transcending through his person and work.

With this call we want to find artists to connect with, artists who feel identified and want to join something great, something beautiful, art to fight for a better future. We want to connect with you.

On this occasion, for the exhibition Earth of Hunger we will select six artists who will be able to exhibit for free in this event, with a maximum of three works per artist; and three artists will be selected to permanently join the exclusive selection of artists represented by Es.Arte Gallery, at no additional charge, as well as the active art circle of Marbella and the Costa del Sol, Spain.

Earth of Hunger

Art can show us where we have been, where we are now, and where we might go. A catalyst for change, a call to action and awareness that can lead us to a just and sustainable future. An increasingly near future.

Earth of Hunger is a group exhibition that focuses on the environmental theme, gathering works of art with a disposition to sensitize the population regarding the land we inhabit. Climate change, ecology, pollution, conservation, recycling, sustainability, fauna and flora in danger. An exhibition that crosses the limits of the visual and enters inside us to transmit its unpostponable message.
