2019 Twitter Art Exhibit TAE19 Edinburgh Call for Artists 

Twitter Art Exhibit (TAE) the brainchild of Scandinavian Artist David Sandum, who held the first TAE exhibition in Moss, Norway in 2010. TAE is a social media project where artists send original postcard sized artwork exhibited and sold for charity. TAE19’s chosen charity is Art In Healthcare, an Edinburgh based charity whose mission is to have a “Scotland in which visual art improves health and keeps people well”. In addition to hanging original contemporary art across healthcare premises in Scotland, the Charity runs a carefully tailored programme of art workshops in partnership with healthcare providers and professional artists to benefit those within the healthcare system.  

Funds raised by TAE19 will enable Art in Healthcare to develop and extend their workshop programme to benefit more people within the healthcare system. 

A new initiative for TAE19 is the use of Augmented Reality. A small group of artists will be given the chance to have their artwork transformed by superimposing video imaging onto their 2D artcards. Further information can be found on http://bit.ly/TAE19_ARpostcard 

Artists are now invited to submit original postcard sized works by registering through www.twitterartexhibit.org/registration. The TAE19 exhibition will take place on 11th – 13th May at Out of the Blue, 32 – 36 Dalmeny Street Edinburgh, EH6 8RG
