ATCs 2019: YES!

Regina Artist Trading Cards Global Call for Submissions: A call to action—

Make and share art that empowers, art that celebrates, art that says YES!” In 1966, Fluxus artist Yoko Ono challenged the world with a ladder. If you climbed up to the top, you could use a magnifying glass to read the text in a painting attached to the ceiling. If you climbed that perilous ladder, the word you read was: yes.

Simple. Powerful. Affirming. “Yes”

Regina ATC is proud to celebrate our 16th anniversary year with a call for submissions to an exhibition and exchange of artist trading cards. Times are tough; don’t let that get you down. Let’s reach out and share our stories, what we are fighting for, what we are proud of, what makes us happy. In 2019 we challenge artists around the world to share your best self.

As ATC founding artist m.vänçi stirnemann says: “have fun making cards, freely trade cards you have made, and communicate with others while you do it.”


Send 6 ATC size cards for display and trade that share your story, your best self, things that affirm you, comfort you : Send us 6 of your best ATC Art cards!

Deadline for submissions: Saturday March 23rd, 2019
