Contemporary | 5th Edition | Call For Artists

Have you ever wondered if your art is good enough? 


There is no secret that most of the artists have this inner dialogue where they ask questions and compare their work with those of their idols and this brings a lot of confusion and anxiety- “Is My Work Good Enough, Is It Contemporary”?


Well- any work of art in any style has the potential to become great even a simple line on a piece of paper and even the great artists that are now Legends had the same questions during their life. 


The purpose of this exhibition is to create a dialogue between artists, artworks and the audience and to demonstrate that any form of art in any style can be successful. 



We are excited to announce an open call for artists to submit their work for consideration in our upcoming SUMMER SHOW. We welcome submissions from London based artists of all backgrounds, mediums and experience levels; including painting, photography, prints and illustration. The theme of this exhibition/event is open, giving you the freedom to submit any work up to an A3 and A2 size.

There is no charge to submit your application, please feel free to share your work with us.

If selected to participate in the show, we ask for a donation of £125 per artist - not per artwork - as long as it doesn’t exceed the size of an A3 or A2. All donations go towards operational activities for the exhibition.

Constellations 2023 supports a group of ten early to mid-career practitioners from across the UK, the Constellations ° Cohort, to develop their practice, collaborate with others, access new networks, and contribute to critical debate surrounding the future of public practice.

The Constellations ° Cohort, selected from across the UK, will take part in three strands of activity, taking place between July 2023 and February 2024:
