6 VIRTUAL EXHIBTIONS

CULTVR Lab is pleased to announce the first two open calls for Catalyst 360º, an ambitious residency and virtual exhibitions programme designed to support artists to engage, develop and test immersive experiences that lie between the physical and digital realm.

6 virtual exhibitions within the digital twin of CULTVR Lab will be facilitated through this strand, supporting artists from any creative background or discipline and at any stage in their career.

The concept is simple:

What show do you want to realise if money is no object?
How have you always wanted to present your work if there are no physical considerations?

This strand will allow individual artists or collaborative teams to design and realise (Virtually) their perfect exhibition to be presented digitally at CULTVR Lab gallery. Artists will put forward their ideas and provide the relevant content for the showcase.

Once the artists have been appointed they will work closely with the creative team at 4Pi Productions to plan and curate the exhibitions whilst the interactive design team produces the virtual shows. This project aims to be conducted remotely from beginning to end, as such, all meetings with the artists will be online.

Each digital showcase will launch on the CULTVR portal and across various social media channels from March 2022 onwards.

In May/June 2022 we will undertake a public vote to select the exhibition that audiences most want us to try to physically realise at the venue for later in 2022/23.

The virtual exhibitions will provide the 6 artists involved with an artistic fee of £750 and with a unique tool to disseminate their creative practice internationally, providing a long legacy to their work across platforms.

This call will be supporting two artists based in Wales, two artists based nationally and two international artists at different points of their creative journey.

Who are Dogs Trust?

We are the UK’s largest dog welfare charity with 20 UK Rehoming Centre’s and give love, care and undivided attention to over 14,000 dogs each year. We’re not new to Wales, as we’ve had a Rehoming Centre in Bridgend for over 50 years, but we’re especially excited to be opening our 21st centre in Cardiff which will allow us to care for an additional 1,000 dogs each year and provide several jobs and volunteering opportunities within the community.

A Dog’s Trail is an exciting new adventure for Dogs Trust – and we can’t wait to work with you. The trail’s aim is to raise significant funding towards our work so that we can continue to provide our services for those who need them the most. But we also know that it is going to be a spectacular exhibition – bringing together many communities through the creation and display of sculptures trailing through the city – a true showcase of Cardiff as a place to visit, love, live, work and play.

Thank you so much for your time, and we hope to hear from you soon.
