A label is any kind of tag attached to something so as to identify the
object or its content. Labeling means naming. It is human instinct to
group things with what they are most similar and name them as a whole.
We live in a world filled with labels antagonising each other to win
our preference. There are labels associated with consumer products and
fashion, people voluntarily label themselves in order to have a sense
of belonging to a group, but there also labels that people use to
categorize others stemming from feelings of racism and xenophobia,
political and religious discrimination, etc. What is the role of these
labels in your life? How can a label describe the world you live in?
Can a label give the infinite set of experiences, beliefs and desires
that summarise each human being?
All of the above are just a few of the many ways one can approach this
year’s competition theme “Labels”.
The ten best entries will be printed into banners with dimensions 200
x 60 cm and will be hung along Ithaca’s promenade for the entire
summer of 2010. Their creators will have free accommodation in Ithaca
on the weekend of the exhibition’s opening (July 2010).
Each individual or group may submit up to two posters. In order to
enter the competition, each artist has to submit their poster through
the competition website. Each piece must have dimensions of 40cm
height x 12cm width (15,75’’ height x 4.73’’ width) and must be
uploaded as an electronic JPEG file, resolution 360 dpi, maximum file
size 10 MB.
