Call for Artists and Contemporary Craft Makers
Dates: 24th & 25th Hanging the exhibition, 26th to the 29th Exhibition Open, 26th Private View - July.
Venue: Motorcade/Flashparade Gallery, Bristol
Other details: This is a free opportunity to exhibit in Bristol at one of the leading galleries.
Background and Concept:
The exhibition will explore the boundaries between art and craft, creating an environment where each are the same and each deal with the idea of a Trace.
We’re looking for Contemporary Craft Makers, Visual Artists, Film Makers, Performance Artists, Sound Artists and Text Artists that create work with an idea that there is a Trace – a Trace of something that once belonged, a Trace of something that once happened, a Trace of a suggestion. The title can be taken literally or ambiguously as we invite a variety of ideas and artforms to create a collaboration between artists, ideas and mediums. The brief is open so as to hopefully inspire and conjure recognition in the subject. We welcome all applications.
The exhibition will be curated by Context, a project led group that aims to create opportunities to provide support and provision for both artists and audiences. Within the exhibition held at Motorcade/Flashparade there will be a Private View which will include a short introduction to the exhibition, those exhibiting, and a debate about the differences and similarities between art and craft.
How to apply:
Applications are invited from all who find this brief and exhibition relevant to their work, geography is no boundary.
To make an application please submit a covering letter introducing yourself, your work and a proposal for the piece(s) you’d like to exhibit, along with documented examples of your work.
Applications will be considered by Emily Bull, the project manager for Context and the Curators at Motorcade / FlashParade.
Please send applications by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Should you need to post applications please send them to 15 Sidmouth Road, Bristol, BS3 5HT.
Deadline for applications:
The deadline to receive applications is Friday 1st June.
