Lucky Dip

Share

Theme:

Eligibility:

The Concept

To host an exhibition based purely on the theme of chance! Artists will be selected at random for a unique group show in March 2020.

By removing the control attached to Open Call selection, artists will be purely chosen by chance. This gives every artist equal opportunity to have their works elected for the show regardless of background, education, status or connections. It also removes part of the curatorial control, making for a more challenging and interesting resulting show.

 

How does it work?

Every artist who completes an entry form will have their name entered into a ‘Lucky Dip’ draw. Once the deadline has passed, 20 names will be drawn at random by an unbiased panel of judges. The process will be filmed to show fair selection.

Each artist can enter up to five works for consideration. Upon successful selection, we will review the artists chosen and artworks will be selected by our in-house curators based on their suitability with the other artists in the show. It is likely that most successful artists will have between one-three works selected for exhibition.

 

What does it cost?

It cost £5 per artist to be entered for the lucky dip. This money will be used towards covering the promotional cost of the show, install equipment and cash prizes for up to two artists awarded at the end of the show.

 

 

What can I enter?

Any artwork, any medium and any theme. However there are some restrictions:

Please ensure all work entered fits under the umbrella of contemporary art. Please see examples of our previous exhibitions for visual inspiration.

Please ensure all work entered is under 1mx1mx1m.

Please ensure all work is complete and fully dry before delivery

If entering a concept piece at application stage, please ensure the work is completed and ready to display by the deadline for delivery.

Please only enter work that will be available during the dates of the exhibition.

2D Work

Any wall based work is acceptable if it is within the size restrictions.

3D Work

Any 3D based work can be entered if it is within the size restrictions. We do have plinths available at the gallery but would prefer artist to supply their own where possible.

Video

Film, video and animation based work will need to provide their own display equipment. Please ensure you are able to provide this before submitting an application for this open call.

Performance

Performance art can be entered, however any cost associated with the performance must be covered by the artist (travel cost, hotel cost, performance fee, materials etc) and you must be available for the opening night.

 

We do not accept work that is:

Racially offensive.

Homophobic, Transphobic or derogatory to the LGBT community.

Pornographic or depict explicit sexual acts.

Harmful to the public or contain noxious or toxic substances
