UPDATE: A big warm thanks for your more than 100 applications! We have chosen 30 artists & designers, whose names will be published very soon.
PAULINA’S FRIENDS is pleased to present an Open Call opportunity to artists, designers and artisans of the world. In our exhibition ‘Healing’ we will be presenting the work of those who create art as a process of finding strength, hope and catharsis.

In our planned exhibition “HEALING”, we want to showcase creatives who find hope, relaxation and personal salvation in their art & design.

Just like Frida Kahlo painting to objectify her physical and emotional sufferings, and the infamous blue period of Pablo Picasso, many artists continue to express fear, trauma and coming to terms with struggles, fears, weaknesses and inner boundaries through their work.

PAULINA’S FRIENDS wants to see your artistic processes of “HEALING” that capture your personal emotional stories. Whether they represent experiences of heartbreak, loss or losing your favorite dress, or a personanal resurrection, we want to celebrate the beauty of art in its ability to heal, transform and revive. Furthermore we would like to get to know the artists & designers from the human, personal  side.

If you are an artist who creates work in an act of personal or social “HEALING”, please send us your proposal with max 3 pictures of your work to There are no restrictions according to genre, technique, size etc.
