Brody Anonymous Project

Brody ArtYard - print studio and gallery - is now accepting submissions for its Brody Anonymous Project. The Project takes place 8-11 October within Art Market Budapest 2015, prominent art fair in the Central and Eastern European region. Painters, photographers, sculptors, illustrators, street artists amongst others are welcome to participate.

Following the success of the last two years’ ‘Brody Anonymous Project’, we will present a selection of artworks anonymously, encouraging viewers to judge (and buy) on the basis on their senses only. No names, no signatures will influence the decision-making process, the audience just has to decide whether they like a specific artwork or not, relying on their senses. Names, bios and other key information will be provided to buyers after a purchase is made.

The core concept of the project is well aligned with the mission of Brody ArtYard that aims to democratise art, reinforce its appreciation and stimulate collection. Specifically, we hope the ‘Brody Anonymous Project’ series creates purchase opportunities for as many people as possible not only by offering a broad variety of artworks (in terms of content, medium, style) but also by making it affordable. Each piece will be available for the exact same price and no distinction will be made among the participating artists – whether the participant is an established artist or a newbie just launching his/her career. Also, we wish to undermine the conventional ideas linked to buying art, in which one examines the aesthetic features of the art piece, the career trajectory of the artists – the brand constructed around the name of the creator. Consequently, the Project is also designed to liberate creativity from the conventional notion of authorship.

Application Requirements

We welcome applications from national and international artists. The Brody Anonymous Project supports a wide variety of media – feel free to submit paintings, photographs, sculptures, mixed media, to mention a few. Regrettably, we cannot process applications for video or sound art for this call.

To make a successful submission, please ensure you do as follows:

  • Complete your portfolio on the platform and refer to ‘Apply’ - APPLICATION GUIDE subsection for guidance.

  • Selected pieces may be 1D, 2D or 3D provided they fit within the space allocated.
  • Each piece must have a frame or support so it can be hung easily.
  • Please sign and date the BACK of the work only (hence the anonymous concept!)
