Open Call: 'Deep Time' exhibition at Fringe Arts Bath 2024

Fringe Arts Bath (FaB) invites artists to submit work to the exhibition ‘Deep Time’ as part of the 2024 edition of the Festival. FaB is an annual festival of contemporary visual arts, performance and intervention that takes over empty and unexpected spaces across Bath city and the larger area.

Stone City

This exhibition will centre around the theme of Bath Stone and the fascination that many people have grown to have for it. The especially fine limestone, quarried by hand from underneath Bath are the building blocks of our streets and give the city its unique appearance. Surrounding Bath’s Artists and residents for hundreds of years, the stone has had an unintentional yet profound impact on many people’s style, taste, and visual practice. The stories and images of how it was mined are both mysterious and captivating and will sit alongside a range of artwork which depicts or is inspired by Bath Stone.

Automated is a digital art exhibition exploring the notion of Automation.

Defined as 'To operate machines or computers that reduce the workload traditionally taken by a human to produce.' Automation can be seen in effect on different levels, as anything made on a computer is defined as automated art, but different technologies, software or tools can vary the workload massively.

Our intention is to present a showreel of new media artists, focusing on digital rather than analogue, featuring artists that use data as their material.

This exhibition will display works of art from the latest mediums of technology, enveloping different digital cultures ranging from gif. art, glitch art, graphic art and generative art - to name a few.

The sensation of home

According to the International Migrant Stock 2019 the UN revealed that the number of migrants worldwide has risen by almost a quarter since the beginning of the decade. By 2019, there were 272 million immigrants, 51 million more than in 2010. Over two fifths of all international migrants worldwide in 2019 had been born in Europe (61 million) or in Central and Southern Asia (50 million). So how does this affect the sense of home? Is home where you come from or the place you go? I ask what home means to someone who never lived where one comes from and if home is even a place to locate.
