Artist Submission Open Call



The Open Market Brighton is creating a new space to celebrate the creative community in the South. Through curated exhibitions artists will take over The Open Market Square in 2017. We want to hear from established and emerging artists or organisations with a desire to support independent culture in the novel environment of a traditional marketplace.

We are keen to receive submissions in any form including combined arts, photography, painting, craft, performance, installation, design and architecture projects. The Open Market is a melting pot for people of many backgrounds- reflecting this vitality there is no set exhibition theme. Instead work will be curated to create a dynamic experience for the public.

Each successful applicant will benefit from ongoing support from The Open Market including a strong marketing reach, logistical support to those wishing to sell work alongside the exhibitions, and use of indoor space for ticketed events.

To see more about the market please

Closing Date- Midnight Sunday 5rd February 2017


To apply please provide:

- A brief Artist Statement detailing the work proposed

- Up to 3 jpeg images of your proposed work

- A brief supporting CV

- Website or blog links

Please email your application and image files to After applications have been received we will contact those shortlisted to discuss the scope and implementation of proposed works.
